With more workers are returning back to work you can be reassured that everyone at Berkeley Scott have been trained and are up to date with Government legislation’s, social distancing and PPE.

Improved Productivity

One of the biggest benefits of using a staffing agency is an increase in productivity. Human Resources teams are stretched to their limits in today’s environment and the time it takes to screen CV’s, set up phone interviews, schedule interviews, handle payroll and administers benefits only adds to wasted time.

At Berkeley Scott we will handle all the initial screening, vetting and interviewing and if you hire temporary employees, will we also handle the payroll and benefits.

Try Before You Buy

Hiring is risky business. Sourcing, interviewing and vetting candidates takes time and money, and if a new hire doesn’t work out, you have to start the whole process over again. Temporary and temporary-to-hire solutions can reduce that risk. Whilst working with Berkeley Scott you can hire an employee for a set period of time, and during that time, we will handle the administrative burdens of payroll and benefits. At the end of the contract term, you decide if you want to extend an offer to the employee.

Better Hires

Despite common misconceptions, staffing agencies have access to top talent. Top candidates choose to work with staffing companies for several reasons. Some enjoy the freedom and flexibility that comes with temporary assignments and contract roles. Others use staffing agency services to help facilitate a career change, while others like the benefit of using a staffing agency to match them to roles where they are most likely to succeed.

Reduced Costs

Hiring full-time employees is expensive. It increases overhead and business risk. Working with Berkeley Scott and leveraging temporary employees to navigate changing workflow can help businesses control these costs.

Temporary employees are employed by us, not your company. That means you do not have to provide benefits or deal with taxes and National insurance contributions etc.

Additionally, temporary employees can help reduce overhead costs like overtime. The per-hour cost for a temporary worker might be more than the per-hour cost of a full-time employee, temporary staff can be leveraged as-needed and on a part-time basis without having to commit to 40 hours each week. If you need a temp for 25 hours one week, that’s all you pay for.

Better Match Workforce to Workload

Depending on the circumstances, hiring a new full-time employee may not be the only or best option for the situation. Berkeley Scott can help with finding the right solution to your workload. If the work is seasonal or you simply need help with a large project or contract, hiring temporary employees may be the best and most cost-effective solution. If you’re not ready to bring someone in full-time until you’re confident in their abilities, temporary-to-hire can be the smartest choice.
