Are Staffing Agencies Worth It For Your Healthcare Facilities?
The answer is YES! A good staffing agency saves employers time and money and finds well-qualified candidates to fill their openings immediately. Employers spend millions of dollars recruiting and staffing on their own, only to find candidates who aren't a good fit for their facility, which can be a bad costly decision. Some believe that that using a staffing agency costs more, when in fact, it doesn't, employers saves millions of dollars using professional staffing services to help fill their staffing needs. Staffing agencies cost employers much less because staffing agencies take on all of the costs, including mandated taxes normally paid through the employer, insurance, workers compensation, and other related cost associated with the hiring.
