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.
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.
