  • Time Saved – Finding great talent for your business can take a lot of time. Some businesses have a dedicated HR manager or department to handle this. However, even they can be overwhelmed in mountains of resumes, applications, and paperwork. Staffing agencies take care of the entire sourcing, application, interviewing, training, and hiring process for you. This includes screenings including drug tests, background checks, and more. This allows you to use that additional time to focus on more pressing issues.
  • Money Saved – When you hire a staffing agency, costs such as Payroll, Benefits, Worker’s Compensation, and Unemployment are transferred over to the agency. Hiring a temporary employee from a staffing agency can also help you save money in overtime costs. This is especially true especially during large projects or busy seasons.
  • Industry Expertise and Insight – Staffing Agencies are a wealth of knowledge when it comes to the industries they serve. Recruiters and business development experts at agencies have decades worth of experience and can find a solution to any staffing situation you can imagine.
  • Flexibility and Adaptability – Whether it is a temporary worker to cover a last-minute order from a client, to offering a temp-to-hire opportunity to a potential production manager – staffing agencies offer solutions for a business’ unique needs. This flexibility allows a company to adjust its staffing needs depending on the season or current situation.
