Temp services are usually thought of as just providing temporary employees. This includes a number of hidden services but there are a number of other valuable services a good temp agency can provide to your company.
Examples of these services include time and attendance systems, tax and employment law compliance, criminal background checks, paycheck distribution, benefits, confidentiality, drug screens, skills evaluation, disciplinary action and performance reviews and more. When deciding on a service you should ask about how they can assist you in these areas. Below list of questions for each area.
A good temp staffing company will be able to address many if not most of these questions. If you are a smaller company, and you are adding employees, it may be worthwhile to run your employees through a temp service for a period of time while you are growing so you can concentrate on building your business without having to deal with these and other employment related issues.
Additionally, if you ask these types of questions to your temp staffing service, you will learn a great deal about who is the true professional vs. a lesser trained service. In the end should something happen, you will want to know that you have a professional behind who knows procedures, laws and generally accepted good practices as they relate to hiring and retaining good people.
