When you have a position to fill that is currently temporary but may turn into something permanent, our contract-to-hire staffing solution may be the perfect option. We’ll source, screen, interview, and work with your team to hire the perfect contract employee for your business. As a professional staffing agency, we work with many different contract employees and match them with companies just like yours.
How contract-to-hire staffing works
Contract-to-hire staffing is when a company brings a contract employee on board through a staffing agency with the understanding that the company intends to hire the contractor as a direct employee at the end of the contract term. There are different ways to go about contract-to-hire staffing that may be dictated by a wide variety of factors, including headcount, budget, or simply the uncertainty of future staffing needs. Sometimes, there’s an agreed-upon conversion date or a number of hours on the contract before converting to a permanent employee. Other times, there is a mutual understanding that the job may not end up in a direct hire, but that the possibility is still there.
With 4 Corner Resources, this customizable staffing option not only saves our clients time and money, but it comes with the added benefit of being able to spend extended time working with new employees before making a permanent hiring decision. The candidates we recruit on your behalf will always be fully aware of the contract length (be it open-ended or clearly defined), and the expectations for converting to a direct position. Our contract-to-hire staffing option allows the contracted employee to remain on our payroll for the duration of time that is best for your business and its workforce objectives.
The advantages of working with 4 Corner Resources
Flexible contract lengths to meet your unique objectives
Don’t wait until you have an open headcount to fill a critical opening on your team – it may never come. From extremely short-term agreements (one month) to multiple years, our contract-to-hire solution can be customized to match any timeframe. Even better, you have the ability to adjust the duration along the way if your business needs change.
Avoid onboarding employees who won’t last for the long term
No one wants to go through the time and expense of onboarding a new employee only to find out after the fact that it isn’t a good fit. With contract-to-hire staffing, you have the opportunity to quickly bring on a contractor, and then take the time to ensure a mutually good fit before making a permanent hiring decision.
Make fewer hiring mistakes
There’s no amount of screening and interviewing that can ensure every hire will turn out to be perfect. If the working relationship with our contractor isn’t what you need it to be, you aren’t obligated to hire them directly. While our proprietary recruiting process produces a consistently high retention rate, our contract-to-hire option provides an extra layer to ensure a successful long-term outcome.
It’s a cost effective hiring option
With contract-to-hire, you don’t pay upfront for expensive payroll costs associated with perks and benefits provided to a direct hire, as we handle all of that for you. You also benefit from paying as you go for each hour worked, which is often more attractive than a lump sum fee associated with direct hire agreements. Our contract-to-hire solution can be customized to meet your particular budgetary objectives.
