This article focuses on exploring the opportunities available to businesses today in their efforts to optimize business operations and take advantage of savings in terms of staff costs. These costs usually represent the largest part of any operating budget.
That is why it is time for businesses to pay more attention on the service of staff leasing.
Temporary staffing or staff leasing formally is a business service where one legal entity – temporary job agency/consultant hires and provides to another legal entity – user company/client, personnel under its management and control. This service is provided for a certain job completion or for replacement of an employee, who is absent from work.
The greatest advantage for employers that choose to use a staff leasing company is the fact that thay can reduse the workload of their accounting and HR/payroll departments.
Once you enter into a co-employment agreement with a staff leasing agency (Professional Employment Organization ) for one or more employees, the firm takes over full responsibility of payroll administration, including preparation and timely delivery of payroll checks, taxes, employee benefits and accounting functions. This means that fewer resources are needed on behalf of your company in the areas of HR and payroll/ administration.
This is another great benefit for you as an employer. Your staff leasing partner will conduct countless interviews with potential candidates which is a big hustle. Good staff leasing companies have professional consultants who conduct interviews to find the perfect fir for the employer (their client) – both in terms of hard skills (skills, experience, knowledge) and in terms of soft skills (matching the corporate culture).
Staff leasing service also saves companies money in times of crisis, when the survival and adaptation of the business is crutual.
Remunerations, health and social payments, taxes and other payments are handled by the staff leasing firm. Further, when using this service your company is almost completely secured from expenses that appear in case of termination of employment relationships with leased personnel and other risks ensuing. The cost of working with Professional Employment Organizationс is usually cheaper than hiring accounting and HR professionals.
You as a Client also benefit from the flexibility provided by staff leasing service. You company is able to choose to hire people for a long term or for a short period of time without increasing the number of employees. For example, a company may hire additional staff during a seasonal peak period or simply cover vacation / maternity leave without worrying about the legal aspects of the relationship.
This specific service is especially important today when companies are looking for staff for specific projects or tasks.
A company that wants to start a promotional campaign using proven professionals or is looking to hire a marketing specialist or IT specialist can achieve its goals with the support of a staff leasing partner.
First, the staff leasing provider can find a job for the employee faster than traditional job search methods, especially in today’s labor market, where jobs are becoming scarce. The employee also has to prepare CV, fill in one application and often has to attend on an online interview. This is in contrast to the traditional job search, which requires countless interviews, applications and CVs and other long processes.
Employees will also be able to improve their CVs by gaining a different experience. It is also possible to provide them with job opportunities in companies or positions that may not have been available to them before on a permanent employment contract.
On the other hand, potential candidates for temporary jobs also need to understand that they have to offer something to the staff leasing agency – something that can be sold to their clients. Of course, candidates must be able to complete their tasks in time with minimun errors.
