Common Problems in Staffing
Here are just some of the common problems in staffing that small, medium and large companies have:
– Increase in jobs that are technical in nature – Minimal number of people qualified to do technical tasks – Difficulty in keeping employees in a company – Increasing number of applicants who cannot find jobs – Difficult and time-consuming process of hiring applicants – Difficulty in updating applicant information
To solve the many problems in staffing, companies often resort to the services of contract staffing agencies and the use of the staffing software. Outsourcing employees from a contract staffing agency make the job of company employers easier. The reason for this is that the contract staffing agency focuses on the business of finding and hiring applicants in various industries. The contract staffing agency operators go about the process of contract management staffing by hiring applicants and assessing their skills. The applicants are listed under the possible occupations that they are capable of doing and are assigned to the companies that need certain job vacancies filled.
Because the contract staffing agency manages numerous applicants, they need a special tool to make the process of contract management staffing more organised and speedy. The tool used to improve contract management staffing is the staffing software. The staffing software is a database of all the applicants in a company or a contract staffing agency.
In the software, the following information are stored:
– Employee background (personal, education, family and work history) – Character references – Skills and talents – Current assignment – Salary – Work hours – Benefits (sick leaves, vacation leaves, bonuses, etc.) – Details of contract with employers
