A staffing company (also known as a staffing agency or a recruitment agency) provides businesses with employees or temporary workers to fill open positions. Staffing companies typically specialize in a particular industry or job function and offer a range of staffing models to meet the needs of their clients.

Here are some of the common staffing models used by staffing companies:

  1. Temporary staffing: In this model, the staffing company provides workers for short-term assignments. This can be ideal for businesses that need extra help during peak periods or to cover staff shortages due to illness or vacation.
  2. Contract staffing: This model provides businesses with workers for longer-term assignments or specific projects. The staffing company takes care of the administrative and HR functions, such as payroll, benefits, and taxes.
  3. Temp-to-perm or temp-to-hire: In this model, the staffing agency provides temporary workers to the business. If the business is satisfied with the worker's performance, they may offer them a permanent position. The staffing agency may charge a fee if the business hires the worker permanently.
  4. Direct hire: In this model, the staffing agency recruits candidates on behalf of the business for permanent positions. The agency may charge a fee for the recruitment process, which is usually a percentage of the new hire's salary.
  5. Retained search: This is a high-level executive search service. The staffing agency is paid upfront to conduct an extensive search for an executive candidate, and the fee is not contingent on the candidate being hired.
  6. Contingent search: In this model, the staffing agency is paid a fee only if a candidate is hired. The fee is usually a percentage of the candidate's first-year salary.
  7. Recruitment process outsourcing (RPO): In this model, the staffing agency takes over some or all of the recruitment processes for the business. The agency is paid a fee for its services, which may be based on a fixed monthly fee or a per-hire fee.

Overall, staffing companies can provide businesses with a range of staffing models to meet their specific needs. By outsourcing staffing functions to a staffing company, businesses can save time and resources on recruitment and HR functions and focus on their core business operations.
