Temp-To-Hire Recruiting

Our Temp-to-Hire Recruiting formula offers you flexibility that could be the best answer for addressing your staffing goals. With the same attention given to our Direct Hire candidates, Wide Effect will work with you to develop a staffing strategy, seek out the best talent, and audit the placement of the recommended candidate.  If you would like the opportunity to assess a candidate's fit on the job and within the team structure of your organization, we can provide the right talent for you.

The caliber of our Temp-to-Hire talent is on par with our permanent placements and in fact, 95% of our Temp-to-Hire placements become permanently placed members of the core workforce at the end of their term. And your Wide Effect contact will stay engaged throughout the trial period to ensure the process is meeting the needs of the candidate and your organization. Access our network of top management, supervisory, and executive-level roles to build your organization’s team.

When is Temp-to-Hire the right solution for your company?

Not sure when to leverage a temp-to-hire staffing solution? Here are a few questions you can ask yourself to determine if temporary staffing is the right fit for your company.

  • Do you have an upcoming project that requires a specialization not held by your current staff? 
  • Does your project workflow require an influx of executive talent that may allow you to grow your permanent workforce and capacity for future projects?
  • Do you have a valued staff member taking an extended leave?
  • Do you need labor or supervisory employees quickly for opportunities that arise suddenly?
  • Has a key customer changed their deadline requirements unexpectedly requiring you to augment your current workforce?
  • Do you need to judge a candidate’s fit within a specific role before hiring permanently?
  • Have you lost personnel without notice and need to find qualified replacements quickly?

Temp to Hire staffing might be the best solution to address these challenges. The flexibility of this arrangement allows you to secure top-level talent for your project without having to commit to a long-term employment contract before an assessment period. This means you can:

  • Bring staff with highly-specialized skills specific never before required on your team.
  • Create and train effective leadership teams in preparation for labor workforce development.
  • Be prepared to accept contracts and projects on short notice and increase your bottom line.
  • Meet and fulfill your customer’s dynamic requirements with little notice.
  • Assess the fit of a potential employee within your team before committing to a long term employment contract.
  • Secure qualified labor and leadership resources on short notice when unexpected circumstances arise.

A flexible workforce is an asset for the fluctuating project flow in Commercial & Industrial Construction, specialized labor requirements of Marine and Oil & Gas Construction, and the cutting edge talent requirements of Renewable Energy Construction. Wide Effect can bring you the industry’s best-skilled candidates at every level, and ensure the placement is a great fit within your team.
