Lots of businesses outsource some, if not their entire, HR departments to help control costs and improve productivity. But did you know a temporary staffing agency can help you do that, too? Here are three ways how:
1. Identifying the Best Talent
Finding motivated and qualified job candidates that are a good fit for your company can be a challenge. You can try to do so on your own, or turn to a staffing agency that can help you expand your reach and identify the best candidates from its extensive network. This approach increases your odds of finding high-quality employees that know what they are doing, are a good fit with your company culture, and are interested in being part of the team in the long run.
2. Staying in Compliance
Employment laws and regulations are constantly changing, making it difficult for an HR department to stay on top of things. There’s the Affordable Care Act, immigration issues (H1-B visas), mandatory paid sick leave/PTO/family paid leave, local regulations, tax issues, independent contractor classification/1099 issues, changes in overtime rules, and more. A temporary staffing agency can help, significantly reducing the chance of being sued by employees for local or federal employment law violations
Running a business means a lot of paperwork and documentation. When these time-consuming (but necessary) tasks are outsourced, you suddenly have a more efficient workplace and more time to focus on tasks that contribute to the productivity and growth of your business. Staffing agencies have extensive experience with all kinds of documentation, paperwork processes, and administrative tasks. And they usually have a method to complete these things faster and more efficiently than a traditional in-house HR department can.
In short, you’ll find that outsourcing at least some HR functions can not only save your company money, but it can also streamline many important aspects of the job and result in greater productivity, less turnover, and happier employees.
