The Pros of Working with a Workforce Solution Partner

Do you have an employee going on a leave of absence? Is there a project coming up in the R&D Department where additional staff is needed on a temporary basis? Is tax season around the corner and you need additional staff to get your company through all of the deadlines?

These are just a few of the scenarios that many companies face on a daily basis where a workforce solution partner can ease your mind and relieve you from the unnecessary stress of finding quality, short-term professionals.  At Innovative Career Resources, we proactively vet qualified and available candidates for our clients before the need arises.  One of the Pros to working with a partner such as Innovative is that we have a larger network of candidates that have already been identified to support your current and future needs.  The market has shifted greatly over the past 12-18 months, and it is much more challenging to identify candidates with specialized skills, especially for project-based work. Sound familiar?  If the answer is yes, look into identifying a resource partner that is specialized in your industry.

Another Pro to identifying a workforce solution partner is that all of the behind-the-scenes work has already been completed.  Innovative Career Resources has a stringent interview process starting with the application process, a two to three step interview process, and applicable testing and references, so that our associates are available immediately in order to accommodate our client’s needs and requirements.  Additionally, once an offer is made, we handle the employee onboarding process which consist of a thorough orientation, policies and procedures to include all state and federally mandated requirements, post-offer drug screen & background check, E-Verify, I-9 and W4. This is much more cost effective and efficient for clients who have an immediate need or needs, with limited resources available.

From a legal aspect, your workforce partner carries the majority of the burden for temporary staff such as liability, workers’ compensation, payroll taxes, employee file management, CA sick leave, and health benefits.  This is especially helpful for companies who are hiring for short-term positions or a Leave of Absence… Innovative absorbs that burden for you, and mitigates your liability and exposure.

As you can see, there are a multitude of reasons why it is beneficial for companies to partner with a workforce solution partner.

Innovative Career Resources specializes in placing temporary, temporary to hire and direct hire professionals with well-established companies in Orange County, Los Angeles, San Bernardino and Riverside counties.
