A business is only as good as its people. To get the best results and stay competitive in your industry, you need to rely on the efforts of a carefully-vetted, qualified, and skilled group of individuals that pull together as a team to produce real results every day.
Temporary staffing services like those provided byInnovative Labor & Staffing Agency will help you achieve that as you work through your own intensive vetting, interviewing, and hiring process in pursuit of building the perfect team.
Full-time staffing services exist as well, but vary from temporary staffing in many ways.
The most significant difference between temporary and full-time staffing services has to do with the contract length. Generally, temporary staffing services include a contract with a predetermined and finite duration.
For instance, let’s say you have a great worker, but he needs to undergo surgery and is expected to need 4 to 6 weeks recovery time following the procedure. Temporary staffing allows for you to pull in someone similarly qualified to get the job done while your regular staff member recovers at home.
If instead, the worker will be out for a lengthy period of time, or may be gone for good, a full-time staffing agency with a generous contract length or no predetermined end date might be best.
The hiring process will be different depending on if it’s full-time or temporary. Whereas temporary staffing agencies like Innovative Labor & Staffing Agency will provide quality workers immediately, full-time agencies need some lead time to come up with viable candidates that have that kind of availability.
In this regard, temporary staffing is a clear winner when you need help and you need it now, while full-time is better for when you’re taking your time sorting through candidates methodically.
However, this means you could feasibly forgo using an agency and vet those candidates yourself in the first place, but understandably some employers don’t have that time available.
Full-time staffing agencies feature workers that may require a salary paid, regardless of the actual hours worked. For temporary staffing, this is no concern. Fair is fair, and employees will need to report what hours they have worked and be paid only for those hours.
In this regard, temporary staffing saves you money as an employer, and you will only compensate your workers for their actual contribution instead of a consistent rate even if coverage is not needed full-time.
Which is best for me?
Which option works best for your organization highly depends on the length of coverage needed, as well as some other factors.
