Finding the right full-time and part-time instructional designers, writers, and editors is crucial for the success of your business. Yet, sourcing and onboarding great candidates is a challenge for many human resources teams.
ProEdit offers a range of staffing solutions to meet your unique staffing needs, including our contract staffing services.
What is Contract Staffing?
Contract staffing is a flexible solution that allows you to hire short-term temporary workers for specific projects or contract workers for a set amount of time. This staffing model provides your organization with the flexibility to quickly ramp up or down your workforce, based on your changing business needs. Additionally, contract staffing can help reduce your overhead costs, because with contractors you do not have to worry about the expenses associated with hiring full-time employees.
How Does Our Contract Staffing Process Work?
At ProEdit, our contract staffing process is designed to ensure that you get the right candidate for your temporary staffing needs. Here’s how the hiring process works:
- Initial Consultation: We begin by understanding your staffing needs and what you are looking for in a qualified candidate. This includes the skill set, specialization, experience, and qualifications required for the job.
- Candidate Selection: We leverage our extensive talent pool to identify and screen potential candidates. We also conduct in-depth interviews, skills assessments, and background checks to ensure that the candidates we present to you are the right fit for your staffing need.
- Candidate Placement: Once you have chosen and approved a candidate, we handle all the necessary paperwork for onboarding, including the contract and payment administration.
- Ongoing Support: Throughout the engagement, we provide ongoing support to ensure that ProEdit’s consultant is meeting your expectations. We also handle all performance evaluations and feedback.
Why Choose ProEdit Over a General Staffing Firm?
ProEdit has been in the technical communication industry since 1992. We are committed to providing you with a contract staffing solution that meets your unique hiring needs. Here are some reasons why you should choose us over a general staffing agency:
- Talent Pool: We have the industry’s most extensive network of technical communicators—instructional designers, writers, and editors. We can leverage our talent pool to quickly identify and screen candidates for your staffing needs.
- Quality Candidates: We conduct in-depth interviews and skills assessments to ensure we present you with qualified and competent consultants who meet your specific requirements.
- Flexibility: Our contract staffing solutions are flexible, allowing you to quickly ramp up or down your workforce based on your business needs. Our consultants can augment your permanent staff team members.
- Cost-Effective: Our contract staffing solutions are a cost-effective way to meet your short-term staffing needs without incurring the overhead costs associated with hiring full-time employees.
What are the Benefits of Contract Staffing?
Here are some of the key benefits of contract staffing through ProEdit:
- It is flexible. Contractors provide you with the flexibility to quickly ramp up your project team based on the demands of your business needs.
- It reduces overhead costs. Contract staffing is a cost-effective solution because you do not have to pay for benefits, payroll taxes, or other expenses associated with hiring permanent employees. You pay only for the time worked.
- It reduces hiring risk. By hiring consultants on a temporary basis, you can evaluate their fit within the organization before making a long-term commitment. This is also called contract-to-hire staffing.
- You have access to the best candidates: ProEdit has access to a talent pool of skilled and experienced consultants that may not be available through traditional hiring channels like human resources or LinkedIn searches.
- Your projects run more smoothly. By hiring instructional designers, technical writers, content developers, or editors for specific projects or timeframes, you can improve project management and ensure that deadlines are met.
There are Also Benefits for Consultants
Contract staffing provides you with the flexibility to work on different projects and for different employers, which can help you gain a range of expertise and skills. And while contract staffing is a temporary arrangement, many contract employees enjoy job security as they are often in high demand due to their specialized skills and experience.
Contract employees are often paid a higher hourly rate than their full-time counterparts, which can help you earn more money over time.
Consultants have more control over their work schedules. This can improve your work-life balance.
