Inflation and economic concerns have dominated the news in recent months as prices for food, gas, and other goods have increased faster than they have since the 70’s.
And due to supply chain issues, caused by both the pandemic and Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, as well as soaring consumer demand for goods, inflation concerns don’t seem to be dissipating.
To combat inflation, the Federal Reserve has responded by ordering multiple interest rate increases.
Unfortunately, a potential downfall of doing so could lead to both layoffs and hiring freezes.
While the objective of such is to lower costs, the decision to do so often leads to a loss of productivity and, ultimately, revenue.
In times such as these, when the cost of business is high and there are critical projects that must be completed, a staffing firm like PSCI can be your saving grace.
Here, then, are the reasons why to seek the resources provided from a skilled staffing firm like PSCI.
Why to Partner with a Staffing Firm During Uncertain Times
Staffing firms, such as PSCI, assume all the risk and costs associated with hiring including taxes, payroll, workers compensation, and even 401k matches. Employers are only on the hook for the negotiated hourly rate.
By utilizing the services of a trusted staffing partner, managers don’t have to inundate themselves with reviewing resumes, reaching out to job seekers, and scheduling interviews. This saved time can instead be used to focus on the needs of their team and department.
Instead of making a full-time hire and incurring the risk of a bad hire, employers can conduct a “trial run” with the employee on a contract-to-hire basis. Not only is this option less risky for the employer, but it also allows them to see firsthand if the employee can handle the workload and if they’re a match for their company’s culture.

Access to More Candidates
At PSCI, we have an extensive internal database of IT candidates.

All candidates from PSCI have been thoroughly vetted before submission. With every candidate we present, we carefully pore over their resume making sure they have the skills and experience required to do the job.
