Have you considered contract-to-permanent positions for your employees? This is a work arrangement where you will partner with a staffing provider for your professional placements. The new employee works with you as a contractor through the service until you decide to bring them on board as a permanent company employee. What are the benefits of this kind of hiring strategy? Let’s take a closer look.
The Benefits of Contract to Perm
When you hire directly, you’re taking on all the risk of that new hire. Everything from the vetting you’ve done to the training process, you’re responsible for everything in the next phase of their career. While that’s the way we expect hiring to happen, it doesn’t mean it’s the only way to achieve success. Considering contract to perm hiring gives you these benefits as well:
- A trial period before committing to the candidate.
- A budget–friendly hiring solution
- Evaluate the need for an evolving workforce.
- Bring in a fresh perspective.
What Do Companies Need to Do to Transition Employees?
If the placement has been successful and you’re interested in hiring your formerly contract employee onto your company payroll, there are a few steps you should take.
- Inform your staffing partner that you want to make the hiring transition.
- Negotiate any remaining terms.
- Negotiate the permanent pay rate with the transitioning employee.
- Present an offer letter.
- Have the employee complete all new hire paperwork.
