    Staffing agencies like Ascendo Resources work with accounting and finance firms to find and place high-quality candidates in both short and long-term positions. These may be temporary contracts or contract-to-hire positions. Ascendo can also help companies with direct-hire and executive search services.

    Staffing agencies are experts in the fields they recruit for and this helps them to easily source top talent at the right market value, helping organizations reduce hiring costs as well as employee turnover.

    When companies have a hiring need, they contact a staffing agency specializing in their industry. The employer specifies the job requirements, number of employees needed, rate they will pay and time frame for each role. Based on this information, the agency composes a job description. Then they will use their internal network of pre-qualified candidates or they will advertise the position on job boards and other professional networks.

    For temporary, project and temp-to-hire roles, the staffing agency will manage the entire recruitment and hiring process. Once the interview process is complete, employers will decide who they want to hire. The staffing agency will then take care of all the new-hire paperwork and contract management, including payroll and benefits.

    Staffing agencies charge fees to their clients for the amount of work the employee performs. Fees take several forms, including:

  • A markup percentage of the employee’s wages
  • Additional fees for filling the position
  • A contract buy-out in the case of a temp-to-hire (conversion)
  • Partnering with a staffing agency can ensure that your company taps into a pool of the very best accounting and finance talent that are the right fit for the position and company culture. Contact Ascendo Resources today for more information.
