Using A Staffing Agency To Save Time AND Money

Employers typically consider staffing agencies to be merely a time-saving resource to turn to when production is up and resources are tasked to the limit; however, many don't stop and think about how using a staffing agency can actually save their companies dollars.

A staffing agency such as Luxor Staffing affords the employer a chance to "try before they buy"—that is, a more cost-effective opportunity to evaluate an employee's performance and attitude to determine whether they fit into the company's culture prior to assuming full liability as their employer.

Recent data from the ASA (American Staffing Association) Staffing Employment and Sales Survey shows that U.S. staffing companies employed an average of 3.2 million temporary and contract workers per week in the third quarter of 2018, remaining above three million for the past four and a half years.

“In a growing economy and ever-tightening labor market, businesses are placing an even greater premium on staffing companies’ ability to source qualified flexible and permanent talent,” ASA President and CEO Richard Wahlquist said. “Because job seekers have more options today than at any time in the past decade, employers really need to sharpen their focus on employee engagement in order to attract and retain top talent.”

On a quarter-to-quarter basis, staffing employment was up 0.7% from the second quarter to the third quarter of 2018; temporary and contract staffing sales increased 1.5% from the second quarter to the third quarter of 2018.

As cost-per-hire continues to rise, Luxor Staffing handles all of the administrative costs for employers, and because we are a high-volume staffing agency, we can often do it on a more cost-effective basis than the employer can.

We source, screen, and place employees for a living, and our management team has over a century's combined experience at it!
