COVID-19 Pandemic Requires Creative Staffing Solutions

starmanCreative Staffing Solutions for COVID-19 

As our state of Ohio and our nation carefully navigates the reopening of the economy from the closures surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic, many companies are faced with a myriad of staffing challenges, such as:

  • Current staff members recovering from COVID-19 and unable to work yet
  • Current staff afraid to return to the workplace for fear of COVID-19 and becoming infected, threatening themselves and possibly higher risk family members
  • Current staff unable to return to the workplace because they are caring for a family member affected by COVID-19
  • Current staff who may have been exposed to COVID-19 and are in quarantine
  • Not all divisions of a company are returning to work at the same time, shifting obligations to other divisions creating bottlenecks and a lack of management and direction

What Is A Direct Hire Employee?

What Is A Direct Hire Employee?

A direct hire is an employee who is brought on as a full-time employee at a company and is not paid by a staffing agency for a temporary period. Direct hire placement is usually used when businesses have a long-term or high-skilled job opening and plan on keeping the new staff member permanently.

Direct Hire Placement

With Accurate Staffing, a client HR Manager will call us and speak to a full life cycle recruiter who specializes in direct hire placements across all industries. Our recruiter will begin the search using our extensive candidate database where we have candidates across all skill sets. Accurate Staffing will handle all the interviews, job offers, pay and compensation negotiations, take care of drug testing and background checks, and provide any client requested skill testing. Our goal is to provide a candidate that will fit well and be a great long-term solution for our customers. We are so confident in our ability to provide an ideal direct hire candidate, that in the event a candidate does not work out in the first 60 days, Accurate Staffing will replace the candidate at no charge to the employer!

Benefits of Direct Hire Employees

Better Candidate Selection

Often, a business who uses a staffing agency for a direct hire placement can attract top performing candidates. Most top performers are continually employed, and a direct hire position can attract the top talent in your area that a temporary or temp-to-hire position would not.

Stronger Employee Commitment

Direct hire employees often have a better sense of stability and security within the company they are placed. Temporary employees usually do not feel the same sense of loyalty toward the company a direct hire does, as temp workers know their employment period is not permanent.

Ability to Offer Better Perks

With a direct hire, companies can promote their own perks and benefits packages. If your company has a great retirement package and insurance benefits, there are perks that can be used to attract the type of prospective candidates you are seeking. Temporary or temp-to-hire employees, on the other hand, receive monetary and insurance benefits from the staffing agency.

Challenges with Direct Hire

Less Flexibility in Compensation

From an administrative point of view, direct hires are more expensive to place than temporary or temp-to-hire employees due to their salary and benefits packages. Achieving greater payroll flexibility with direct hires can be more difficult. While direct hires are often highly qualified, employers have to compensate them for their expertise and skills.

More Time-Consuming

The process of hiring an employee directly is slower than a temporary or temp-to-hire placement. It takes time to make a long-term decision and evaluate the pros and cons of hiring an individual who has the potential to be with the company for years. This lengthy process can cause you to miss out on great candidates if you are too slow to make a decision and a competitor hires them first.

Why Accurate Staffing For Your Direct Hire Needs?

Accurate Staffing is one of the premier direct hire staffing companies in the Akron, Cleveland, and Canton areas. We invest heavily in advertising and marketing for our direct hire services and have a constant influx of highly skilled candidates.

staffing agencies akron, canton

When a company is searching for a new employee, there are many associated expenses such as recruiting costs, background checks, drug testing, and skill set testing. When the individual is hired, payroll is just the beginning of the expenses a company will also need to consider. There are the costs of employee benefits including health insurance, vacation pay, and for some positions, 401k contributions or similar expenses. Additionally, a company must consider workers’ compensation, FICA, State and Local taxes, Federal withholding, and year end W2’s. It can be overwhelming!

Call Center Staffing

starmanCall Center Staffing 

Accurate Staffing, Inc. has been providing call center staffing solutions since the beginning of our company. Our leadership and sales teams have extensive experience in working in call centers and have a sales mentality. This experience provides us with a keen insight into what to look for in an individual to fill a call center position, what it takes to be successful, and how to recruit for it as well.

A call center can be a very exciting environment with a lot of opportunity for success, but it can also be very tough. Many individuals get into the field thinking they can handle it, but quickly learn it’s not for them. In order to help identify potential candidates who have “the right stuff”, Accurate Staffing has developed a role playing system which allows us to evaluate individuals on their fit for working in a call center. In this role playing process, we give candidates all types of call center situations. For example, dealing with the elderly; huge manufacturers of consumer products; or massive call centers to name a few. We gauge each candidate’s effectiveness and patience and based on our background and experience we can determine if they are a good fit for the role.

Additionally, with our in-depth interview process we can further target the types of personalities we feel would excel in a call center environment. In many cases, a candidate may be applying for a completely different position, but through our interviewing and recruiting process we identify that the candidate may be a great fit to fill one of our call center staffing positions. By being able to identify top talent that through our experience and processes we feel will flourish in a call center environment, we can place qualified candidates in our customer’s open positions. And just as important, we are able to identify those candidates for whom a call center is not a great fit, helping both the candidate and our customers avoid a failed attempt filling a position. We never try and turn the wrong people into call center staffers.

In this very challenging field, Accurate Staffing thrives in providing call center staffing solutions in the Akron, Canton, Cleveland and Northeast Ohio areas.

Choosing The Best Staffing Agency For Your Business

starmanKnow the facts when choosing a staffing agency 

In today’s very competitive economic landscape, it’s extremely difficult to find quality employees for your business. Why should you use a staffing agency to address this challenge? There are a wide variety of reasons. For example:

  • Control costs
  • Improve productivity
  • Relieve bottlenecked departments
  • Meet critical deadlines
  • Tackle new initiatives
  • Cost-effectively manage changing workforce demands
  • Improve hiring process efficiency
  • Reduce downtime, overtime, turnover and overhead
  • Offload time-consuming, mundane or inefficient tasks

As you can see, a staffing agency can really help your business thrive by providing solutions for critical business needs. However, there is a lot to consider when choosing the best staffing agency for your business.

Staffing Is All About the Best Fit for YOUR Business

There are thousands of staffing agencies available to consider for your business. The key is choosing the agency that best fits your company. Consider the following:

  • What is the staffing agencies’ niche market?

For example, if you operate a call center you wouldn’t want to partner with a staffing agency that specializes in engineering. You want to target staffing agencies that are experts in placing candidates within your industry.

  • Can the staffing agency handle different departments within your company?

Your staffing needs may be diverse, from executive and managerial, to engineering and technical, to labor oriented tasks. You should look for a staffing agency which can be your partner in all of the areas you have business needs.

Additionally, you will want to work with an agency that has a good reputation and operates within a 20-mile radius of your location for which you need to hire. This way, they can create a quality pool of job candidates for your company.

Be sure to interview prospective staffing agencies, to learn as much as possible about what they can provide for your business. Following are some helpful questions to ask:

  • What is the expertise of their internal staff?
  • What is their hiring process?
  • How do they get their candidates?
  • Do they drug screen and background check all job candidates, and who pays for this?
  • What is their average retention and attribution by percentage?
  • Ask for referrals that you can you call to verify customer experience and satisfaction

As you can see, choosing the best staffing agency for your business, like any other business decision, requires patience, research and thoughtful questions to determine if the agency will be able to fit your critical business need and form a long term, successful partnership.

Understanding Staffing Agency Costs

staffing agencies akron, canton

starmanUnderstanding Staffing Agency Fees 

For a staffing agency, the process of finding a qualified and reliable employee, and providing that employee for work with a business customer is significant. There is a huge misconception regarding staffing agency fees. Most companies think staffing agencies make a large profit, but in fact staffing agencies work on very low profit margins. For example, consider all of the costs associated with an employee:

  • Payroll
  • Payroll taxes
  • Healthcare
  • Vacation and holiday pay
  • Liability insurance
  • Workers compensation
  • Advertising
  • Testing
  • Other related recruiting costs

When you consider after paying all of the above fees and other related employment costs, staffing agencies are actually making pennies per dollar for every hour billed to a customer.

There are thousands of staffing agencies and agency fees vary greatly from one provider to another. When you are in the process of choosing a staffing agency to partner with, keep in mind the different types of fees you may encounter, and ensure that your agreement with the agency clearly documents what fees are covered, and by whom.

There are other types of staffing agency fees to consider, for example: contingency fees for finding an employee, or a direct hire fee which is normally 25-30% of the employees first years’ gross salary. There are staffing agencies which offer temporary, temporary-to-hire, contract, and direct hire placements across all industries, and fees may vary greatly.

Our Approach at Accurate Staffing

Here at Accurate Staffing, even though payroll and all of the other associated employee fees go up annually, we never increase our customer’s bill rates. We have customers that have been with us for 20 years and are still paying the same billing rates they were paying from the first day of placing an order. 

Furthermore, Accurate Staffing partners with our clients; we mirror your hiring process. With our national network and a database of more than 60,000 candidates, Accurate Staffing rapidly delivers talented, reliable workers.

However, filling orders is only part of a sound staffing strategy. For your business to thrive in today’s economy, you need a true staffing partner whose services fuel your success. Accurate Staffing understands, and we deliver! Our supplemental and strategic workforce solutions help you run leaner and accomplish your business goals. We have a long and successful history of providing critical staffing solutions for a wide variety of industries and businesses, including:

We are centrally located in Northeast Ohio with offices in Akron (330.630.0700) and Canton (330.494.9675). Contact us today to learn more about how we can help with your staffing needs.
