Temporary Assignment Employee

We are planning to hire a temporary assignment employee for about 8 weeks.  We decided to hire the person directly instead of going with a temporary agency since it would cost us almost three times as much.  It is a very administrative position.  Would anyone not recommend going with temporary direct hire?

  • With an agency, you do get some benefit of screening and no/reduced administrative burden. However, if you have an effective screening process and the administrative burden of paperwork is outwieghed by the cost savings, then I say go for it. Be careful that the terms of employment are clear to the temp direct hire too. We do temp work both ways, depending on the job.
