Contract Staffing & Recruiting Services
A popular alternative to full-time employment is the HireSource contract staffing and recruiting service. HireSource can engage a consultant or contractor in a number of scenarios such as W-2 employment, 1099 independent contracting or corp-to-corp consulting.
MAXIMIZE your potential by utilizing HireSource’s contract staffing service.
From a job seekers’ perspective, consulting has a number of advantages. First, consulting or contracting assignments are financially rewarding as they typically pay at a higher rate than that of an employee. In some circumstances, consultants even see time-and-a-half pay for overtime hours. Contracting also provides a chance to learn valuable new skills and exposure to the latest technologies while enhancing future marketability and value. Another advantage with contract job opportunities is it allows the individual to “feel out” the culture and work environment of different companies, providing the person with a chance to find the best fit for his or her personality and career objectives. This “try-before-you-commit” approach is very popular, as it minimizes the guesswork and reduces the risk of contractors being permanently placed in the wrong company culture or environment. Finally, consulting provides flexibility. Many contractors accept an assignment for a specific number of months, then take time off before accepting another project based on what works best with his or her schedule and financial situation.
For all of these reasons, contract staffing has grown in popularity over the years. Most consultants enter into a contract expecting to leave after completing the assignment; however, many find themselves accepting a full-time employment offer. In fact, our clients end up permanently hiring almost 35 percent of their contract consultants.
MINIMIZE your costs by utilizing HireSource’s contract staffing service.
From a company’s perspective, contract staffing offers a flexible and cost-effective means to augment internal staff with specialized professionals that fit into a tight budget. HireSource consultants give your business the flexibility to tackle new initiatives, accelerate workflow and meet project deadlines. Although consulting rates sometimes appear to be high, there are huge cost savings for the employer. During each assignment, the client is not responsible to pay weekly state and federal taxes associated with the contract employee. Further savings include workers’ compensation and liability insurance, health insurance and any unemployment costs if the individual is laid off or released. The only cost is an hourly rate, and the only responsibility is managing the consultant.
Hiring contract employees requires no commitment or guarantee on behalf of the client. This allows your company the flexibility to augment staff for as long as desired. On the other hand, if a client company identifies a consultant who fits a long-term need, HireSource provides the option to release the employee with no fee whatsoever after six months of continuous employment.
From the standpoint of both sides, contracting allows the client and consultant to ensure the job and work environment are mutually conducive. Furthermore, HireSource contract staffing allows candidates the ability to maximize income potential while minimizing the client’s spending.
