Ever since the recession hit the global economy 8 years ago, many companies have become increasingly interested in hiring temporary workers.  But what is temp staffing? Let's start with the basics. When a company wants to hire employees for a short duration of time, it is known as temp staffing.  And why do companies hire temporary employees? To meet the demands of an urgent short-term project or to take the place of those on vacation.  While there are many advantages of hiring temporary workers, it also gives rise to more questions. What about their payroll? Do they get the same benefits as permanent employees? And doesn't this lead to more paperwork and administrative formalities when compared to hiring permanent employees?  While all of these are valid concerns, what if a company only had to bother about hiring these employees and everything else from the joining formalities to payroll to exit procedures was taken care of by someone else? This is exactly what Paysquare's temporary staffing services is all about.  Here is why choosing such a staffing service can be beneficial.  

Advantages of Hiring Temporary Staffing Services

1. Adaptability

  In today's market scenario, demand is never stable.

2. Cost Effective

A few questions linger on every employer's mind about temp staffing. "How much does it cost to hire a temporary employee? Do temporary employees get benefits?"  Temporary workers are paid an hourly rate or a salary only for the duration that they work for. The benefits of temp staff are also kept on par with the permanent employees as this helps attract the temp talent.  Processing all these benefits and determining the pay for each of the temp staff is tedious and wearisome and will require to develop a separate department to deal with this. However, by outsourcing these services to temp staffing agencies like Paysquare, it will actually be cost-effective than doing it in-house.

4. Compliance to Policies and Rules

  Compliance   Payroll processing requires you to follow certain rules and regulations. Not doing so can attract fines and lead to legal complications. Unlike permanent employees whose payroll is set from the beginning and only require minor updations from time to time, the payroll of temporary staff needs to be updated constantly.  Every time a temporary staff is hired or let go, the payroll processing needs to change. And all these changes need to comply with the company policy and with the rule and regulations in existence.
