If you are looking for a staffing partner, consider the advantages of working with PeopleShare as your temporary placement service!
According to NACE, the average time from first interview to an actual offer is 22.5 days. Now add the time of further analysis, posting positions, gathering resumes, sorting/reviewing resumes, and setting interviews and you have a lot less time on your hands! Temporary staffing services have a database of qualified and screened candidates for a variety of positions. Having a staffing partner familiar with your culture, environment and talent required will quickly cut your company’s down time and overtime by utilizing other departmental employees.
The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics show that the average cost for hiring a new employee is $58K including basic wages, benefits, and taxes. Add in overtime during the vacancy of the position, sourcing/recruiting and advertising costs, screening, background and testing costs, and this number can easily grow! A staffing partner can provide you with the costs associated with hiring while offering guarantees related to the quality of their talent. Further, the costs associated with payroll taxes, unemployment and worker’s compensation claims are part of their responsibility.
Spreading the workload across existing staff rather than adding additional staff can quickly decrease productivity and morale. Employees working prolonged overtime hours tend to become overwhelmed, unmotivated, and less attentive on the job. Additionally overworked employees are, most times, less productive and are more likely to become sick or have the potential to experience a work related injury causing even more downtime.
Whether your need for a temporary employee is to cover a vacation, leave of absence, or an expected or unexpected increase in workload, having an established staffing partner can provide you with additional resources and the flexibility you need fast! Having experienced talent that can get started and adapt to your position and environment can provide you with a steady workflow.
More than 80% of new hires do not work out for one reason or another! With the resources, time, and money spent sourcing, hiring, onboarding, and training, this can be very disappointing! Why not feel more secure by taking advantage of the benefits a staffing partner can offer? Having the chance to evaluate the person on a temporary basis will allow the opportunity to see how their education and experiences fits within your organization and uncover any areas for improvement that may not be apparent in the interview process.
