Career Management Associates’ (CMA) Professional Contract Staffing service is an increasingly popular option for many organizations.
Do you require a senior executive or key professional on a contract basis to handle a specific business need? In a tough spot with an unexpected resignation, termination, or simply have a key project that must be completed?
CMA teams with your organization to assess the talent required, recruits the candidate and, once the candidate is accepted, handles the entire contract process. The contractual hire reports to you but that person works for, and is paid by, CMA. We manage the administration, payroll, and taxes, thereby relieving your organization of all HR responsibilities.
Contracts can range from a few days to several years, depending on the circumstance. Once Career Management Associates is engaged, we assume responsibility for fulfilling your staffing requirement so that you can continue to concentrate on your business.
Why Use a Staffing Agency?
Contrary to popular belief, using a staffing agency can actually help in keeping business costs down, not hinder. The cost of hiring through a staffing firm is often cheaper than the cost of hiring permanent employees. When you employ an agency, it – not you – becomes the temp worker’s employer. The agency is responsible for and bears the financial burden of recruiting, screening, testing, and hiring workers; payroll expenses and paperwork; payroll and withholding taxes; unemployment and workers’ compensation insurance and claims, and any employee benefits made available to the employee.
Staffing firms are one of the most helpful and most overlooked resources a company can have at their disposal.
Temporary help agencies can quickly provide your organization with qualified staff. Candidates of every level are now employed through staffing firms in virtually every industry – from retired professionals, to college graduates, to professionals in transition, in Human Resources, Marketing, IT, Administration, Healthcare, Banking, Engineering, and more. The decrease in employment rate means that there are more highly skilled with a wide range of educational backgrounds and work experience available.
Staffing firms strive to find employees that fit their client’s needs. Whether that means a two week temp, a direct-hire, or anything in between. Utilizing a staffing firm gives an organization time to get a feel for a potential permanent hire, to make sure they are the right fit or identify any weaknesses that would not typically be evident in the interview process, before making an offer of employment. Far more often than not, temporary workers put their best foot forward in hopes of becoming permanent employee. They are very reliable and tend to perform at a high level.
The pros of putting a staffing firm to work for you are infinite.
