If you are considering…

partnering with a Staffing and Recruiting Company, (and here at Judy’s partnerships means something), here are a few things to consider:

  • TIME

    According to NACE (naceweb.org) the average time from interview to offer is 22.5 days. Add the additional time of position analysis, posting the position, accumulating resumes, reviewing resumes, and scheduling interviews and you have easily absorbed at least a full week or someone’s payroll and lost a huge amount of time. Reputable staffing and recruiting companies have a pool of qualified and screened candidates (both passive and active) for the positions in which they specialize. Ensure that you work with a proactive staffing company, not a reactive one.


    According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, the average direct cost for a new employee is $57,967.88 including basic wages, benefits, and taxes. When you also factor in overtime during the vacancy of the position, recruiting and advertising costs, screening and testing costs, and this number will grow considerably. Judy’s Staffing can provide you with a predictable cost per hire and offers guarantees to support the quality of our talent. For all positions except Direct Hire, there is an additional cost per hire savings, as we are the “Employer of Record” for Temporary, Contract and Bridge2Hire employees. This means we absorb all the costs associated with payroll such as FICA, FUTA, SUTA, Worker’s Compensation expenses and more.


    Spreading extra workload across your existing staff rather than adding additional staff, will quickly result in a drop in productivity. Employees working prolonged overtime or long hours can become overwhelmed, unmotivated, and less alert. These employees are also more likely to become ill or suffer a work related injury which causes more expense and downtime for the employer.


    69% of all employers said they made a bad hire in 2012, according to a CareerBuilder survey. At Judy’s Staffing and JSS Executive Search we offer a Performance Guarantee and a free replacement on our talent.

Studies show that nearly 90% of all US companies will utilize Staffing and Recruiting companies at some point, and that number is growing because the benefits are proven.

If you’re searching for a staffing partner, or considering a change from your current supplier, it’s wise to take the time to identify and qualify the best. Established firms will be able to provide you with testimonials, have access to a strong and proven pool of candidates in your industry, and take the time to understand your goals and objectives as an organization.
