Why You Should Use Staffing Agency for Temporary Hires

by Usama Chaudry on August 15, 2022

For many years the term “staffing agency” has been a dirty word for hiring managers, but recently, businesses have been moving towards closer “partner” relationships.

So why the shift? A staffing agency, just like Primus Workforce, acts as a middleman between employers and workers. It can save businesses time and money and match well-qualified candidates with current job openings for seasonal assignments, special projects, or same-day work.

4 Reasons to Use Staffing Agency for Temporary Hires

1. Access the best

When using a staffing agency, you’re statistically more likely to access the best job-seekers on the market. Those who are actively looking for new positions are more likely to register with agencies. Instead of ending up with a pool of so-called candidates to choose from, a temporary staffing agency provides an army of qualified applicants ready to go.

2. Cost Saving and Increased Productivity

Using staffing services means paying for their expertise, but the recruitment and training process is costly as well. From creating vacancy announcements to advertising, responding to inquiries, scheduling reviews, assessing candidates, and conducting references, and background checks. All these activities are time-consuming and take existing staff away from their regular duties.

Therefore, passing those tasks onto an agency that knows how to zero in on a skilled worker is financially beneficial in the long run and saves hidden costs

3. Flexibility

With the uncertainty about what 2021 will bring to businesses and how the Canadian and global economy will perform, temporary staffing can help you manage the ebbs and flow during these uncertain times.

Primus WorkForce does not place any restrictions on the use of our workers. Companies can hire temporary workers in any capacity, for whatever timeframes they desire. Whenever you need them, a staffing agency and its talented employees will be there.

4. Salary Benchmarking

Suppose you’ve got a role, and you’re unsure what the right and most suitable salary is for the position. In that case, the staffing agency is ideally placed to give you an accurate market rate using salary data and local market knowledge.

One of the most widespread misconceptions about staffing firms involves the quality of their candidates. Some companies may believe that workers who come through staffing agencies are only there because they couldn’t get hired anywhere else. But, that’s not necessarily the case. Temporary employees at Primus WorkForce are often overqualified for the jobs they’re doing. They decide to work temporary jobs because they either value flexibility or trying to get into a different field they can excel.
