ANNOUNCEMENTS

Welcome to MSA!

We've completed a makeover of our site in order to bring you more information and resources in a user-friendly environment. There's still more to come; some pages are barren. Please be patient as we make the next round of improvements.

Staffing services include temporary help, permanent placement, temporary-to-permanent placement, long-term and contract help, managed services (often called "outsourcing"), training, human resources consulting, and PEO arrangements, in which a staffing firm assumes responsibility for payroll, benefits, and other human resource functions.

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.

Managed Services
A staffing firm assumes full responsibility for operating a specific customer function (e.g., mail room) on an on-going basis.

Payrolling
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.

Placement
A staffing firm brings together job seekers and potential employers for the purpose of establishing a "permanent" employment relationship.

Temporary Help
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.
