Long-Term and Contract Help
A staffing firm supplies employees to work on long-term, indefinite assignments. Employees are recruited, screened, and assigned by the staffing firm.
A staffing firm assumes full responsibility for operating a specific customer function (e.g., mail room) on an on-going basis.
The customer recruits workers but asks a staffing firm to hire and assign them to perform services. Or workers currently employed by the customer are placed on the payroll of a staffing firm. Payrolling is distinguished from PEO arrangements in that the workers generally are on temporary assignments and make up a small proportion of the customer's work force.
PEO (Employee Leasing)
A business places all or most of its workforce onto the payroll of a staffing firm and the staffing firm assumes responsibility for payroll, benefits, and other human resource functions.
A staffing firm brings together job seekers and potential employers for the purpose of establishing a "permanent" employment relationship.
A staffing firm hires its own employees and assigns them to support or supplement a customer's workforce in situations involving employee absences, temporary skill shortages, seasonal workloads, and special projects.
Temporary to Hire
A staffing firm employee works for a customer during a trial period in which both the employee and the customer consider establishing a "permanent" employment relationship.
