10 Reasons You Should Work With A Staffing Agency

1. Reduce overhead costs

Permanent employees cost more than just the salary they are being paid. Health care, 401k retirement plans, sick days, vacation pay, and employer taxes are just a few of the costs included with permanent staff.

With a temporary staffing agency, an employer doesn’t pay any of that, they simply pay them for the work they have done, with no additional overhead costs.

2. Reduce overtime pay

Rather than putting additional demands on current permanent staff, an employer can use an engineering staffing agency and bring in temporary workers to help split up the amount of work during busy times.

This saves them from burning out full-time employees and overtime costs for employees if they work on an hourly basis which is a big benefit of staffing agencies.

3. The need for short-term staff

An employer may need a temp employee due to permanent staff being sick, on maternity leave, having a family emergency, or taking a leave of absence.

Hiring through a temporary staffing agency gives an employer the flexibility to schedule someone for a short period to handle these situations.

4. Save on training, and time, and reduce hiring risks

Training new employees require a significant investment of both time and costs.

When searching for someone to cover a few months’ worth of work, it doesn’t make sense to spend money to train them. By using a temporary staffing agency and employer is provided with someone ready to do the work they need.

When the contractor’s job is completed, the work is over, there is no need to worry about severance pay, unemployment insurance, or finding a replacement. Not to mention the parting of ways is streamlined and smooth which is another staffing agency benefit.

5. A staffing specialist saves time and increases ROI

Sometimes employers looking for resumes may have projects that require a specialist, or someone with certain expertise.

If it’s a temporary project that will only take a certain amount of time to complete, it doesn’t make sense to hire them on a permanent basis.

A temp agency can set an employer up with a skilled staffing expert and save them time by weeding through hundreds of resumes, checking references, and taking calls from candidates who may or may not be qualified.

Technical staffing agencies help find temporary workers while saving employers time and money so they can focus on other business aspects.

6. Handles onboarding and payroll

A big benefit of using staffing agencies is that the staffing agency takes care of the temporary employees' onboarding paperwork, payroll taxes, workers’ compensation, and unemployment benefits.

7. Access to talent networks

A good staffing agency spends years building up their talent network through referrals, networking, and speaking with candidates daily. An employer usually doesn’t have the resources to engage talent constantly.

When an employer says “I need a staffing agency to search for IT resumes” a top IT staffing agency should be able to deliver qualified candidates in days.

8. The ability to hire quickly

An employer may have an employee quit and need an immediate replacement. A temp staffing agency can deliver qualified talent many times in less than 24 hours due to its extensive network of candidates.

9. Industry market knowledge

Another benefit of using a staffing agency is that an employer gains access to the recruiter’s insider knowledge of skilled available candidates both active and passive, salary ranges, and local market trends.

10. The ability to try out an employee before extending a full-time offer

It can be hard to determine if an employee will be a fit strictly through an interview. By starting an employee on a contract the employee and employer can see if everything is a good match for both parties and if it is not, both can part ways easier.
