A temporary position is one where the employer and employee agree to work together for a limited period of time. The length of employment depends on the position and the employer’s needs, but most positions are shorter than a year. The placement agency is usually responsible for paying temporary employees rather than the employer. Although temporary placements may have less stability than direct hires and temporary employees might not earn benefits, these positions can be great for those looking to gain experience in a certain industry, network with professionals or obtain a temporary source of income.
A contract position fills holes in a client’s workforce. Usually, a contract worker does work for a company and is legally employed by a staffing agency or employer of record partner. The employee works at a client’s business, but the employee or a third party are the employer of record.
Job seekers leave a permanent job for a contract position for many reasons. Some feel bogged down in their current work and need a change of scenery. This has increased exponentially due to the rise in remote work. Others look to gain experience in a certain field or industry. Some candidates want to check out new professional opportunities without committing full time. All these factors will play a part in sourcing contract workers.
Temporary-to-hire or temp-to-hire positions combine the temporary and direct hire placements. Employers might hire a candidate temporarily to assess whether they’re a good fit for the position. If the placement goes well, they might offer the candidate permanent employment. Candidates most often receive payment through the job placement agency until they accept a permanent position.
Direct hire is when an employer hires an individual as a full-time, permanent employee. A direct hire employee receives their payment from their employer and does not earn temporary pay from the staffing agency. Direct hire placements happen most commonly with employers looking for a long-term, highly skilled employee. Although it can take longer to find a direct hire position since they’re more permanent and may require a higher level of qualification than other types of placements, these positions are usually stable and often include benefits like health insurance and retirement plans.
RPO stands for recruitment process outsourcing. It is a business model where a company outsources the management of the recruitment function (in whole or part) to a third party expert to drive cost, quality, efficiency, service, and scalability benefits. RPO providers are subject-matter-experts; talent acquisition is their core competency. They know how to navigate the recruiting environment, stay current with the latest recruiting technology and have the resources to scale recruiting capacity to meet hiring demands. RPOs bring people, technology, process, and metrics into a talent acquisition function.
