Temp Staffing in Bangalore
At one point of time, major Indian tech companies maintained a ‘bench’ in anticipation of large projects from their clients. That time is slowly coming to an end. These bench employees continued to receive their salary on a regular basis and yet they do not have any work. Today’s generation looks beyond salary, so this may not be the ideal situation for them. For companies, it is too big a cost to incur especially when it is prudent to manage your expenses more carefully.
Companies these days are now opting to hire employees on a contractual basis and thus eliminating a lot of administrative overheads and costs. Another option is to tie up with reliable temporary staffing agencies and meet staffing needs more efficiently.
What is temp staffing?
Temp staffing or temporary staffing agencies provide employees to companies that need employees on a contractual basis as opposed to permanent employees in some cases. While these temporary employees are on the payroll of the staffing agency, they continue to function as normal employees of the company. Here, their HR benefits and related compliances are handled by the temporary staffing company, leaving the organization free from all these hassles.
By outsource their staffing needs to such temporary staffing agencies, organizations are freed up from the burden of managing the administrative overheads of these temporary employees.
It gives them ample amount of time to focus on their core business operations and take steps to achieve their vision and mission more efficiently.

Staffing service is defined as a service provided by an agency (staffing agency) wherein the staffing agency manages the employees hired by the client company and then deploys them to the client company. The client company does not have to go through the hassles of managing all the payroll and related HR benefits for these temporary employees.
Companies need to maintain optimal staffing levels depending upon the change in the number of projects they handle. For example, if there is a sudden demand for more employees to work on a project, then these temporary employees can be quickly supplemented to that project without wasting the time and efforts on recruitment.
This way staffing costs are reduced and current set of permanent employees need not be overworked to meet the demands of such projects. Also a long term view of the requirement of such resources may not be available, so it is best to hire them on contract terms.
It differs from company to company. A majority of these companies do not provide benefits to temporary employees.

Financial implications of such changes can be quite high. When the staffing company like Paysquare manages these temporary employees, the benefits are managed by Paysquare.
