When you need to fill positions for your light industrial, office and clerical workers, the last thing you want to do is spend countless hours recruiting, interviewing, and hiring people – with the hope that you’re filling the position with the right person, just to find out that the person wasn’t what you thought.
The idea of using a staffing agency might have crossed your mind in the past, but you were hesitant to pull the trigger. Perhaps thinking, “we can do it more effectively in-house”. But at the end of the day, a decision about filling the position has to be made.
Is it the right one?
Will this person be a great fit for our organization?
Will they fit in with the culture?
A decision is made, but you may just be putting a “body in a position” and the recruiting and hiring efforts are taking much more time than you budgeted for. Perhaps a decision is made just so everyone can get back to their normal routine. The coin is flipped… Is this a good hire? The only way is to hire the person and see if they fit, potentially dealing with re-hiring and re-training for that position if it doesn’t work out. There has to be a better way…
AHEAD Staffing is always recruiting, screening, and hiring people – focusing on the right people! We have the infrastructure and the expertise to do it quicker, more efficiently and more effectively than you do, because it is all we do in staffing.
We can provide either temporary workers or candidates for temp-to-hire arrangements.
Perhaps your staffing needs are temporary or the needs of your business are cyclical – you need people today, but know that the demand for your services or products will go down at some time in the year.
And while you might be tempted to handle it all in house, hiring a temporary workforce will create a paper trail nightmare – especially with unemployment. Besides, when the employees know the position is temporary, will they continue to come to work and put forth their best efforts?
AHEAD Staffing works to keep our flexible people around all year so they’re there when you need them!
When you’re working with the pre-screened applicants from AHEAD Staffing, you know that a lot of the heavy lifting has already been done for you. You can place an employee in a position and know that if it doesn’t work out, the headaches of recruiting and interviewing a replacement doesn’t fall on your shoulders!
A temporary staffing agency is a great place to find a permanent employee. As the old saying goes, “Be slow to hire and quick to fire!” The temp-to hire relationship means that you can give these candidates a chance to show you their work before hiring. And if they are not delivering on the job you have the choice of replacing them.
