How a Staffing Service Can Help

Fixed Expenses Develop a plan to staff your business strategically. Minimize your number of direct employees to the level needed to sustain your core volume of work. Plan to bring in extra help when it's needed. Bring in expertise on an as-needed basis. Technical and professional temporaries can deliver the experience and skills you need without impacting fixed expenses. As an added benefit, temporary "experts" are often less expensive than consultants.
Benefits Limit benefits expense by using temporary employees. Most temporary employees receive only limited benefits which are paid by the staffing service. Companies with extensive benefits programs may not want to offer full benefits to all employees. Using temporary staffing, payrolling, or employee leasing services may make it possible to offer more limited and cost-effective benefits programs to these employees.
Overtime Use temporary employees to reduce the amount of overtime worked by your direct staff.
Training Reduce training costs and learning curves by bringing in temporary employees who are trained and have experience using the skills you need
Recruiting Use a direct placement service to eliminate the costs and time involved in advertising, screening resumes, interviewing, testing, and reference checking
Payroll Administration Eliminate the costs associated with processing and administering your company's payroll and benefits by using a payroll service or PEO
Unemployement Claims Using a temporary in place of a short-term employee prevents an unemployment claim from affecting the client company. Legally, payrolled or leased employees work for the company providing the payrolling or employee leasing service. All claims affect the staffing service's unemployment rating not yours.
Operating Inefficiencies Inefficient functions can be outsourced to services that can perform the work more effectively. The outsourcing service should be able to reduce expenses and improve performance while allowing your company to focus on its core competencies
