Outsource Staffing Solution

Employeer Challenge

The client wanted to hire temporary employees without using a traditional staffing company model, in which markup rates include a finder's fee for sourcing prospective hires. Knowing best how to hire for their own projects and wishing to retain tighter control of their contingent workforce, the client wanted to source their own temporary staff from an already-identified pool that included past employees, retirees, and other specialized talent. However, the client also wanted to hire these employees without losing some of the accompanying benefits offered by a traditional staffing service, including fewer administrative hassles, quicker on-boarding processes, and reduced employer liability.

Employer Solution

Innovative Employee Solutions designed a customized, outsourced solution that relieved the company of HR administrative burdens and lowered their risk and liability. The plan allowed them the ability to source their own talent and adhere to their stringent standards for pre-employment screening and expense reporting. IES designated an account manager and experienced payroll staff to handle the hiring and HR administration for the client's temporary employees, and implemented an outsourced payroll program that included customized forms, applications, and timecards, all accessible online. IES set up pre-employment screening procedures for new hires and managed workers' compensation and unemployment claims on behalf of the client

Employeer Benefits

With IES acting as their employer of record, the client now spends significantly less time on the administrative tasks of hiring, payrolling, and managing their contingent workforce. And by sourcing their own temporary hires and payrolling them through IES, the client is able to save up to 50% when compared to traditional staffing fees; maintaining tighter control of its contingent workforce, while still enjoying the reduced risk and liability that comes with utilizing temporary staff. Using IES' outsourced HR administration also allows the client to bypass its own lengthy internal hiring procedures, mandatory wait times, and other red tape that previously led to extended hiring delays.
