How the contract staffing model can improve your recruitment agility

share on

Most contract staffing agencies cover substantial geographic areas, enabling them to find international talents in countries across all regions.

This article is brought to you by TG Group.

As international labour markets become more complex and unpredictable, companies can devise business expansion strategies through contract staffing to diversify their recruitment processes and control costs more efficiently.
Contract staffing generally involves fixed-term or project-based employment instead of a permanent hiring agreement. In many cases, businesses approach a staffing agency for support in hiring skilled employees for a stipulated period or to accomplish a particular project.

Why contract staffing?

In recent years, businesses have been searching for ways to be cost-efficient, and many have chosen to use contract staffing as the solution to stay agile as they strive to achieve business growth. The contract staffing model allows companies to meet their recruitment needs by hiring non-permanent employees in the form of independent contracts, part-time work, and seasonal labour. Additionally, it is an opportunity to evaluate potential talents who may later be offered permanent positions.

The following are the benefits of working with a contract staffing agency:

1. Faster hiring process

Hiring through a contract staffing agency is a quicker option to fill talent gaps because they typically have a pool of professionals ready to work. Recruitment, vetting, internal sign-off, and other procedures take time. A contract staffing agency will find, filter, and recommend the best candidates to their clients. In addition, the agency takes care of payroll and onboarding if required. This is especially important for rapidly growing establishments, such as startups.

2. Cost-efficient

One of the most attractive benefits of contract staffing is the potential savings, as organisations do not need to hire full-time employees for each role. Many companies turn to experienced freelancers when seeking non-permanent hires.

Alternatively, hiring independent contractors requires extensive understanding of the labour market and salaries, as well as establishing administrative procedures for payroll and compliance. A contract staffing agency sources candidates with detailed comprehension of labour market costs, invoicing for compliance, and payment protocols already in place.

3. Access to international talents

Most contract staffing agencies cover substantial geographic areas, enabling them to find international talents in countries across all regions. The trend of people opting for hybrid or remote work to have better work-life balance has continued in the post-pandemic, thus maintaining the global supply for contract staffing. Furthermore, more work is integrated from remote locations as businesses increasingly conduct operations in the cloud.

4. Mitigate compliance risks

Most organisations' HR departments have their hands full dealing with permanent staff and other activities that require their coordination work within the company. Consequently, it would be a strain for them to manage non-permanent employees. When companies mistakenly classify contract workers as employees, they could be held responsible for unpaid taxes and contributions, resulting in fines. Partnering with a contract staffing agency ensures that all necessary paperwork and procedures adhere to corporate regulations and labour legislation.

5. Increase flexibility

Contract staffing allows business owners to better adapt to shifting market conditions and job needs. With proper planning, companies can hire matching talents based on specific vacancies. By acquiring a contract staffing service, businesses increase productivity and gain access to an extensive network of professionals. With technology enabling recruiters to communicate better with job searchers, this flexibility will free up more resources for a company to focus on business growth in the long run.
