Discover the value that contract HR employees can bring to your organization!

Strong Experience Levels

Contract employees often have more years of experience than full-time employees:

  • Contract employees typically require less onboarding and training than full-time employees to begin producing.
  • You can ensure you hire contract employees with the skills and experience required to complete specific tasks.
  • You can take on additional projects to improve your bottom line.

Increased Flexibility

Because you can hire contract employees much more quickly than full-time employees, contract employees increase the flexibility of your team:

  • You interview the small number of vetted candidates the staffing agency recruiter sends.
  • You offer a contract to the desired candidate.
  • The recruiter negotiates the offer on behalf of the candidate.
  • The contract employee begins producing in a short amount of time.

More Manageable Workloads

Contract employees can help your full-time employees manage their workloads:

  • Contract employees can support your HR team during busy seasons.
  • These employees may have specialized skills to complete a project.
  • Your full-time employees can remain productive without feeling overwhelmed.

Reduced Cost

Hiring contract employees typically costs less than hiring full-time employees:

  • Although contract employees typically have higher wages or salaries than full-time employees, your company does not need to pay and provide benefits to contract employees; the staffing firm typically offers some benefits.
  • Contract employees typically require less onboarding and training than full-time employees.
  • The staffing firm pays for these employees’ employer and employee taxes.
  • You avoid paying unemployment insurance when an employee’s contract is up.
