If you are a hiring manager or supervisor, you are always looking for ways to save your company time and money. One way you can attain that goal is by partnering with a staffing agency. Here are six reasons why.
Reduce Recruiting Expenses
Working with a staffing agency helps reduce your recruiting time and expenses. The agency handles job postings and marketing, reviewing resumes, and interviewing candidates. The agency also takes care of background checks, sending candidates to interview with the hiring manager, negotiating salary and benefits packages, and more. Because the staffing agency maintains a database of job seekers, they can recommend qualified candidates to fill your temporary or permanent roles on short notice. The amount you save depends on factors such as the type of job being filled. For instance, you may save more when filling an entry-level role than an executive position because of the time needed to vet candidates.
Complete Background Checks
A staffing agency can complete background checks on your job candidates. You save time and money on fingerprinting and state, regional, or federal investigations. Also, if candidates have questions about their background check results, you save money by referring the candidates to the staffing agency rather than having an employee handle the inquiry.
Cover Employee Benefits
Partnering with a staffing agency means the agency covers employee benefits for their workers, depending upon eligibility. This saves you money by not having to pay health insurance premiums for temporary workers. The agency further saves you money by paying temporary workers for vacation days, sick leave, and other benefits.
Lower Payroll Expenses
Working with a staffing agency lowers your payroll expenses. Because the workers being placed are employees of the agency, the agency processes payroll for them. Depending on the size of your workforce, you may save several hundred or several thousand dollars per year. Payroll processing for the staffing agency includes withdrawing tax deductions from workers’ paychecks, calculating weekly/monthly worker gross and net pay, and directly depositing worker paychecks into bank accounts.
A staffing agency helps reduce risks. Because the agency acts as the employer of record for temporary workers, the staffing agency takes on much liability for workers on assignment. For instance, the agency covers certain taxes, provides insurance, and follows labor laws for their employees. The agency also handles hiring and firing temporary workers, paying unemployment and workers compensation, and more. You save time and money by not having to deal with these issues.
