If you have an open role that requires hard-to-find skills, chances are you’re having a difficult time filling the position. Workers with the desired abilities most likely are already employed and not looking to change jobs. You can spend a substantial amount of time and money without getting the results you need. You can also turn to a trusted staffing agency to help find contract workers with the skills you’re looking for.
If you’re having challenges finding the skilled talent you need, here are four reasons to hire contract workers.
Hiring contract workers saves time in your recruiting process. The staffing firm conducts multiple interviews, background checks, skills tests, and other screening before sending highly qualified candidates your way. You meet with them to decide which to add to your team. Because the candidates already are prescreened and highly experienced, they can begin producing in a short amount of time.
Contract workers provide a cost-effective way to complete specialized tasks. Because a staffing firm employs contract workers, you don’t have to pay for benefits, employment taxes, unemployment insurance, or related expenses. Simply pay the contract workers’ salary or hourly wage and leave the rest to the staffing firm. Because contract workers typically work remotely, you shouldn’t need to pay for office space. This further reduces your expenses while getting the necessary work completed.
Contract workers provide specific skills beyond the scope of your employees’ expertise. You gain access to these skills on demand for as long as you need them. Contract workers also can take on projects your staff doesn’t have time to complete. When the projects are finished, the workers move on to other opportunities. This flexibility keeps your staff productive while avoiding work overload during busy times or layoffs during slower periods.
Contract workers may have the opportunity to become your new hires. You’re able to evaluate their work performance in case a permanent role opens up. If you find a long-term need for the skills that contract workers provide, and the workers blend with company culture, you can consider offering them a full-time position. This lets you know in advance whether they’d be well suited for permanent employment.
