Chances are, your business already uses contractors for some job functions, or could benefit from using them. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, 60% of all businesses use contractors.
Why? Because contractors can handle virtually any job, including Maintenance, Mechanical, Electrical, Industrial and Design Engineering functions. Businesses save time, money and headaches by hiring contractors instead of employees. Besides paying an employee's salary and other compensation, companies are responsible for payroll taxes, unemployment, vacations and sick leave, retirement, workers' compensation, and health and life/disability insurance--all of which add significant expense (often in excess of 30%) to total payroll costs. Thus, though a contractor's hourly wage may be higher than that of an employee who performs the same job, employers can still save money by hiring them. The utilization of contractors instead of employees reduces exposure to some types of lawsuits, such as those alleging job discrimination or wrongful termination.
Perhaps most importantly, contractors lend invaluable flexibility and expertise to specific projects--without the hassle of possible severance costs and lawsuits that may arise from laying-off or firing an employee. Moreover, experienced contractors can save your business the time and expense involved in training employees, and afford you the opportunity to expand and contract your workforce as needed, quickly and inexpensively.
Benefits of hiring a contractor through Proactive
- Personalized Service: With Proactive, you won't be bothered by endless calls and emails
from multiple staff members trying to promote candidates that have nothing to do with the contract position you are attempting to fill.
Your personal search consultant will present you with only the most qualified applicants for each specific contract position.
- Expertise: We are experienced specialists who, through extensive screening, can identify
the best candidate to fill an important position. Employing the services of Proactive is ultimately faster
and more effective. As an employee owned company, clients can expect long-term personalized service. Our goal is to
maintain an exceptional reputation and build long-term relationships by providing effective results.
- Network of Contacts: Proactive has access to a wide range of contacts through extensive
recruiting and networking. Some of the best candidates are currently employed; many will only deal with a reputable recruiter.
Candidates appreciate third party representation, confidentiality and professional mediation. Recruiting superior candidates is an
intricate process and best performed by a discreet professional.
- Speed and Convenience: Proactive conducts reference checks and thorough
interviews with all applicant clients to save the employer considerable screening time. Proactive is continually
tapped into the talent marketplace, making the hiring process much faster. We realize that each day a key opening remains
unfilled; the other employees must grudgingly do double duty. Not to mention the potential revenue loss.
- Confidentiality: We understand that the search process must sometimes be kept confidential.
Confidentiality can keep current employees from finding out about internal changes, competitors about new product and market
initiatives, and can help avoid employee and stockholder apprehension. Proactive consultants are sensitive to confidential
information and will conduct their search accordingly.
- Cost Effective: Our rates are among the most competitive in the industry. The benefit of
using Proactive can be weighed against the cost of preparing and executing an expensive and lengthy advertising/recruiting
campaign. The process of advertising, recruiting and screening candidates, can be extremely costly and time consuming. The service
Proactive provides is an investment in improving the quality of an organization's staffing profile. The fees associated with
our service become incidental considering the payback.
- Objectivity and Feedback: We can help clients evaluate their expectations based on the market
and define a realistic profile and compensation package. Proactive consultants provide employers with advice and objective
feedback on the candidates. This is accomplished through close contact with both the employer and candidates.
- Reduced Downtime: In addition to saving the employer considerable screening time, our ability
to locate candidates who can immediately perform the job duties with minimum training reduces down time considerably.
Proactive Personnel does not discriminate on the basis of age, sex, race, national origin, religion, or disability in attempting to place applicants with prospective employers, and will not refer applicants on any discriminatory basis.
