The work world is changing dramatically. For more and more employees, this means an effective end to the days of retiring with a pension or even a gold watch after years of service. In its place is an ever-evolving work environment where employees must be flexible in work roles and cognizant of the importance of gaining new skills.
Another change that continues to affect the face of the working world is the desire for a work-life balance. Defining work-life balance is often as unique as the individual. In some cases, this might mean an employee desires a flexible schedule that works around a college class. In another case, it might mean a parent is looking to juggle a work schedule to avoid the prohibitive costs of daycare. For someone else, it could be the need to find a schedule that works around the needs of a parent or family member they are caring for.
Staffing KC Overview
Staffing experts are uniquely qualified to match qualified candidates with just the right skill set and personality mix to an employer looking to fill a particular role. This personal approach remains far superior to the old school method of submitting applications online or dropping off a resume at any place that’s hiring. By using a staffing agency, individuals have the opportunity to go through a proven screening process that allows the staffing recruiters to discover which unique skills could best benefit a local employer.
Temporary Placements – Perfect for individuals looking for a short- or long-term staffing assignment, particularly those needing flexibility in their work schedule. During this time, job candidates remain an employee of the staffing agency.
“Contract to Hire” Placements – For those looking to “try out” a position before becoming a full-time employee of a company. Candidates will go through an interview process but will remain on the staffing agency’s payroll for a set number of hours. This is a great way to experience a particular work environment. It’s also a “try before you buy” for employers.
Direct Hire Placements – This job search method also includes an interview process. When the candidate and employer meet for the interview and decide it is a mutual fit, the employer will offer a permanent job to the candidate. The staffing recruiter is there to assist in negotiations of compensation.
