Q: Are there any benefits to using temporary/contingent workers? A: A carefully constructed survey by economists at Lehigh University and the University of Oklahoma concluded that there is a strong link between improved financial performance – improved earnings, gross margins and stock returns - and a contingent workforce (i.e., temporary/part-time labor). As part of an overall flexible work force strategy, companies that use temporary and contract workers enjoy real bottom-line benefits.Q: What are the benefits of working with a temporary staffing firm?A: Staffing firms give their clients the ability to fill their temporary and full-time staffing requirements in a simple and seamless manner.

Q: Why should my company consider a flexible staffing solution (i.e. using temporary workers)?A: Partnering with a staffing firm will save employers on benefits and taxes, since they are paid by the staffing firm, and on administrative costs. Deploying temporary workers also reduces the cost of unemployment insurance, which has increased exponentially in many states, since that tax is paid by the staffing firm, not the business. Q: What constitutes a healthy workforce mix between employees and temporary/contingent workers?A: Each company has its own ideal ratio of temporary workers that will provide the business the right level of flexibility without compromising the core skills and knowledge that the business needs to secure the delivery of quality services or products and long-term business growth.
