Staffing Agencies

What is a staffing Agency's role in the modern business world and how to take full advantage of them.

The what

What is a staffing agency?

A staffing agency is a company that serves as a mediator between employers and job seekers. Its primary function is to help employers find suitable candidates for open positions and help individuals find suitable jobs. 

As opposed to recruitment agencies, staffing agencies will hire qualified talents themselves to work for the client company. In this arrangement, the staffing agency handles compliance and payroll responsibilities for the employee(s) on behalf of the client company.

The How

How does a staffing company function?

A staffing agency operates as an intermediary between job seekers and companies looking to hire locally or cross-borders. The agency reviews resumes, conducts initial interviews, and assesses candidates for suitability. Shortlisted candidates undergo additional interviews or evaluations with the client company.

Once a candidate is selected, the staffing agency facilitates the job offer process and handles payroll, tax deductions, benefits, and other HR-related functions. The agency bills the client company, adding a markup to the employee’s wages as their fee.

The agency maintains communication with both the client and the placed candidate. This helps in addressing any issues or feedback and ensuring a smooth working relationship.
