Case Study: Staffing Agency

Solution to Temp Agency Staffing


Today’s post describes a business that, by its very nature, demands a robust Workforce Management system. As more and more companies hire temporary contractors as part of their business strategy (as opposed to an occasional stopgap fix during a staffing emergency), savvy temp staffing firms can capitalize on the situation and expand and diversify.

Consider the unique logistics of our example business. While some staffing services specialize in just one industry—such as health care—this 12-year-old agency has entered new markets steadily for the past few years. They currently place administrative assistants, computer programmers, call center staff, manufacturing workers, machinists, child care providers, and substitute teachers.

With a constant turnover of contract workers and offsite punch ins as the norm, this agency couldn’t cope with their timekeeping and scheduling system. Though it was partially automated, the technology was 10 years old and it couldn’t provide the number of job codes they required. The mobile app malfunctioned frequently and didn’t support the latest time clocks.

A staffing agency simultaneously serves two classes of clients; the temp workers they place and the companies who use the workers. Each of the players depend on the firm for accuracy. The business owners don’t want to overpay the temps, and the hourly contractors are, understandably, especially sensitive to timekeeping accuracy.
