In 2014, more than 35% of all companies in the United States used a staffing firm to hire employees, according to Inavero and CareerBuilder Research.  Companies use staffing firms to ease the time and money spent searching for great hires.  There are many benefits to working with staffing firms, thus explanation for why so many companies choose to outsource their staffing.  Working with a staffing firm saves companies time and money, but also involves less risk, allows companies to get to know potential hires, and works well for temporary and seasonal hiring.  Continue reading to learn more about how companies benefit by hiring a staffing agency.

Saves Valuable Time and Money- By hiring a staffing agency, companies save money and eliminate the need for in-house recruiting.  This not only saves money, but valuable time reviewing applicants, doing background checks, and drug-screens.  Staffing agencies take care of those aspects of hiring for companies.  This allows for companies and their current employers to eliminate the need for in house recruiting and focus on the profitable work at hand.

Involves Less Risk in Hiring Employees- Hiring temporary workers through a staffing agency allows companies to evaluate the work ethic and skills of an employee before choosing to hire full-time.  Hiring temporary positions take the risk out of hiring by allowing companies to get to know the workers.  If a temporary employee has proven their value to a company, a full-time offer can be made without the risk of that employee not being right for the company or job.  Other companies may use temporary hires to fill positions while searching for the correct full-time hire.  All of these variables make hiring a staffing firm, such as Premier Staffing, a great option for companies interested in taking the risk out of hiring full-time employees right away.  Another great benefit of working with Premier Staffing includes a no buy out fee if a company chooses to hire an employee full time on their pay roll.  Premier also does not require a minimum number of days or hours that an associate should work before the company chooses to hire.  Again taking risk out of using a staffing agency, like Premier Staffing.

Works Well for Seasonal and Temporary Positions- For companies who experience exponential growth based on season or need to fill positions quickly due to rapid temporary growth, staffing agencies work best. Staffing agencies are able to find companies temporary hires, and take the work out of hiring for that company.  For companies looking to hire a large number of employees, temporarily, staffing agencies are a great option to look in to.

Affordable – Hiring temporary employees from a staffing agency, like Premier Staffing, is a great option for many companies, because it is affordable. When working with a staffing agency, employees hired technically work for the agency, not the company, so insurance and benefits are provided by the agency.  The staffing agency bears the financial burdens involved in recruiting, hiring workers, paying employees, unemployment and workers’ compensations insurance, and any benefits the agency may choose to offer.  This is a huge benefit to employees who want to avoid the above expenses and fill positions quickly.

Allows Flexibility in the Workplace- Because staffing agencies provide quick staffing solutions it allows your business to support growth and decrease in a flexible manner.  If a business experiences temporary growth, staffing firms can temporarily fill positions to help companies avoid hiring full-time positions that may not be necessary in months to come.
