LEADS TO EXPERIENCED PERMANENT EMPLOYEES
Permanent recruitment is often designed to find a well-rounded employee who will be a great long-term asset to a team. Perhaps you avoid labour hire companies because you want a permanent employee, not a temp.
However, working with a labour hire company can help you find a permanent employee and help you feel more confident of your new employee's success.
You have the ability to inform the labour hire candidate that their position could turn into a full-time role if there is a good fit within the company. This means that you will actually get to see them working and be able to more fully determine whether they'll meet your company needs.
If it’s a YES than you simply offer them a full time role. This process creates an easier transition for everyone since the employee already has experience doing the job.
