Contract Staffing Is Key In Today’s Market

There are a lot of uncertainties in the world today. As both companies and workers try to navigate this unknown territory, it can feel like you’re doing it blindfolded. Many workers are unsure of what’s in store for their future careers, and that can be unsettling. However, businesses must continue to grow and provide the products and services necessary to keep our society in motion.

In today’s post-pandemic market, contract staffing offers a stable yet flexible workforce solution for both companies and employees.

Why Contract Employment Is The Right Move For Your Career

As a result of the Coronavirus pandemic and the subsequent shutdowns throughout the country, millions of talented workers found themselves suddenly displaced. If you are in this situation, you’re probably wondering what to do next. Job listings are slim, especially in the trajectory of your ideal career. The jobs that are available jobs aren’t probably part of your long-term career goals. However, you also don’t want to look like a “job hopper.” It’s almost a catch-22.

Contract employment is the perfect middle-ground. It allows you to get back to work quickly, provide benefits for your family, and continue advancing your career. Simultaneously, you are afforded the opportunity to work temporarily or on projects as needed. As an added bonus, you may also get to work in areas that you usually wouldn’t, giving you a chance to actually beef up your skills and resume. And in a perfect world, your contract assignment may even turn into a full-time opportunity if it’s a good fit!

How Contract Staffing Can Keep Your Company Moving Forward

While business starts to pick back up, many companies are cautiously optimistic. And as a result of the millions of furloughs and layoffs, there are some incredibly talented candidates on the market right now. If you’re itching to take advantage but unsure of the stability of the economy, contract staffing is the perfect solution.

It allows you to hire employees on an as-needed basis; whether that is for a specific project or to fill critical gaps in your workforce. You can hire contractors on a long-term or short-term basis to choose what works best for your current needs. And at any time, you can terminate the contract, which is much more amicable than implementing layoffs. Hiring contract reduces fixed costs and helps you save by paying straight time for hours worked. And finally, contract staffing allows you to get someone in the door immediately.

Why Your Healthcare Facility Needs To Hire Contract Staff

Why Your Healthcare Facility Needs To Hire Contract

In 2019, we saw a huge surge of contract hiring throughout the Healthcare industry, and it is only heating up more in 2020! For many organizations, it has become a key element to building sustainable, successful teams throughout every department. If you still need a bit of convincing on why your healthcare facility needs to hire contract staff, we’ve got you covered!

1. Get people in the door quickly

In the healthcare field, when you need candidates, you need them NOW. In fact, people’s lives depend on it! Every vacancy has a significant impact on your team. It puts pressure on current team members, leaves work on the table, and takes time away from management to hire new staff (which can sometimes take months!). When you need qualified talent quickly, contract staffing is the way to go! You can hire people in less than a week, ensuring that our department hardly misses a beat.

2. Meet seasonal demand

Healthcare organizations experience a lot of seasonal fluctuation. For example, during the 2018-2019 flu season, healthcare providers saw approximately 16.5 million influenza-associated visits in the United States. Of course, your organization will need to be staffed accordingly. Contract staffing is perfect for seasonal demand. You can hire as many team members as you need to get you through the rush and term them once their contract is over.

3. Attract better talent

The flexibility of contract positions is very appealing to many healthcare employees. Temporary contracts may allow you to offer stronger compensation and flexible work hours. These benefits are extremely appealing to today’s candidates and will allow you to attract high caliber talent from around the country.

These three things are only the start of a long list of benefits to hiring contract staff. Eager to learn more about how hiring contractors can transform your team? Contact one of our experienced healthcare recruiters today!
