Many potential applicants and companies in the Madison area ask us the same question. “Why should I use a staffing firm?”
A survey conducted by the American Staffing Association shows staffing employees are more employable because of previous temporary or temp-to-hire job opportunities. Of those surveyed, 62 percent of staffing employees developed or improved skills while on assignment. That skill development translates into stronger resumes for job seekers and more chances to get a foot in the door for additional opportunities.
Additionally, employers also benefit from the use of staffing employees to fill job needs within their companies. Employers that use staffing firms have access to more candidates, the ability to fill positions quickly, access to specialized skills and the flexibility to bring on additional employees based on the current workload. A survey cited that 47 percent of employers used staffing firms for that ability to gauge the fit of an employee prior to hiring.
