Direct Hire Staffing
Companies that are seeking out candidates in areas where low unemployment numbers are common can benefit from partnering with a staffing agency that offers Direct-Hire Placement like QPA does. This solution will provide you with a different candidate pool than what you would get from your job boards and typical candidates applying to ads. These are passively looking, confidential candidates that as a staffing agency, we network with to assist them in their direct-hire confidential search as a working employee. Accessing this different pool of candidates is a well-known resource for companies trying to fill higher level positions within the company that are looking for specific skill-sets.
Contract employees give the business an opportunity to try out an employee before making a permanent offer of employment. In some cases, a person may have the experience and education for a job but simply does not mesh well with the business environment. So in this case, the Contract-to-Hire solution works great. Having the opportunity to have the person work on a contract basis first gives the business a chance to evaluate how the person will fit in with the corporate culture and other employees. It also provides time to identify any weaknesses that would not typically be evident in the interview process.
Most businesses can use an extra set of hands to handle a big project or a new surge in business. But most are reluctant to hire full-time staff. This is where the contract solution can be of help. A staffing agency can provide contract employees to help with a wide variety of business tasks. Working closely with the staffing agency, a hiring manager can ensure that contract workers possess the needed skills, education and experience to meet workload deadlines.
