PPP loan requirements? Production not meeting demand? If you're struggling to bring employees back, this is a must read. What would you do with an extra $600/week? Would you add a new weekend sports car to the garage? Maybe a new set of golf clubs? That condo on the beach you have been eyeing? To blue collar and white collar employees alike, especially in a retail, hospitality, industrial, or administrative position, the extra $600 simply means you do not have to go back to work any time soon. As a part of the CARES Act, those claiming unemployment receive an [...]

The Most Important Time To Hire

By |2020-07-29T19:37:53+00:00June 17th, 2020|Uncategorized|

The impact of the COVID-19 pandemic has turned the tide for employers who need critical employees. What was once a candidate driven market is now an employer’s market.  In the recent past, we experienced stiff competition for worthy candidates.  Now things are different, and it is not only the social distancing.  With a projection of unemployment rising towards 15%, and growing uncertainty for those who are still employed, candidates that were once passive are now open to new opportunities.  An increase in unemployment and uncertainty results in a leverage shift from the candidate to the employer.   To capitalize on [...]

Do’s and Don’ts for Contract Staffing

By |2020-07-29T19:38:03+00:00January 10th, 2019|Blog|

Regulatory compliance has become such a burden that many business owners now hesitate to hire new employees. Keeping up with federal, state, and even city-specific payroll taxes, wage-and-hour laws, insurance mandates, and other requirements is simply too costly—particularly for businesses with employees in multiple states. No wonder, then, that many businesses have found it more economical to use contract employees. Yet, while obtaining workers through a contract staffing agency can have numerous benefits, there are also some challenges.

If Your Turnover Is Too High, Look at Your Workplace Culture

By |2020-07-29T19:38:08+00:00November 15th, 2018|Uncategorized|

Does your business experience high turnover, i.e., the percentage of all full-time positions that have to be refilled each year? Some turnover is to be expected, of course, particularly in low-skill, low-pay jobs. But is your turnover so high that it is affecting your company’s productivity and financials?

As an IT manager looking to fill an open position, you might think your job is done (with a relieved swipe-swipe of your hands) when you provide your comprehensive list of job requirements to your internal HR person. Your internal HR coordinator then hands the hiring req off to an experienced IT recruiter or recruiting agency, who you expect will come back to you with several ideal candidates for you to interview. But with IT unemployment averaging 2% or less, candidate applications are not just going to pour in. Your recruiter is going to have to go searching for people [...]

Gig workers. Independent contractors and consultants. Freelancers. Has your business employed the services of one of these? If you haven’t yet, it is likely that you will in the future. According to a study conducted by Intuit, by 2020 over 40% of American workers will be contingent employees. During our 25 years of working in the staffing industry, we’ve seen many companies successfully integrate the temporary hire into their workforce. We’ve also witnessed colossal failures. So, what do you need to do to ensure your experience is a win-win for your organization and the temporary (contingent) employee? Treat them as [...]
