How_Ontario_Temp_Agencies_Help_Job_SeekersYou’ve probably heard a fair bit about temporary agencies by now, especially given that the gig economy appears to be here to stay for a while. An Intuit report recently stated that 45 percent of the Canadian workforce will be self-employed or working on-demand jobs by 2020. Temporary work is becoming the norm.

Despite all that, there’s still a bit of skepticism surrounding how helpful temporary agencies really are to candidates in the gig economy. Due to common misconceptions about the industry, candidates often miss out on the unique solutions that temporary agencies, especially local temporary agencies, have to offer them.

Want to know how Ontario temporary agencies are uniquely suited to help job seekers? Read on to find out!

Multiple Types of Employment

Ontario temp agencies want to help as many job seekers as possible find gainful employment. To that end, they don’t just focus on temporary opportunities. Liberty Staffing, for instance, offers temporary, temporary-to-permanent, and permanent placements.

Savvy staffing agencies are aware of the diverse needs of both candidates and employers in today’s demanding economy. Since there are many employers looking for temporary workers, there will naturally be many temporary positions available. But that doesn’t mean temporary agencies only focus on placing candidates in temporary positions.

Ontario temporary agencies are dedicated to working with the needs of their candidates and want to place them in their ideal positions. Their recruiters know from experience that the best placements are those in which candidates are culturally fit for the workplace.

Networked with Local Businesses

Ontario temporary agencies also have the major advantage of being a part of a network of local businesses.

When you apply to a staffing agency on the national level, you’ll often need to relocate for their placements as they hire on a global scale. As such, it’s a real gamble as to whether you’ll be able to find a position that won’t have you uprooting yourself for an employer that may or may not be a good fit.

Local staffing agencies often have strong ties to several businesses within their neighbourhoods and can get your resume noticed by their managers. Some of these businesses work regularly with staffing agencies, so you can bet they’ll be interested in you as a candidate from a trusted staffing partner.

Referral Programs

If you’re also looking out for your friends and family members, Ontario agencies will reward you for your referrals. If you refer a friend or family member to work with Liberty Staffing, and they work a minimum of 200 hours with us, you will receive $100 for every successful referral. Not only will you be rewarded for referring individuals, but your friend or family member will gain a meaningful job.

Ontario staffing is about targeting local talent, working with candidates one-on-one to determine their needs and strengths, and placing them in local businesses that will offer the type of employment they truly want.

Ontario recruiters aren’t just interested in the number of placements they make; they are dedicated to helping out as many qualified candidates as possible. Working at the local level, Ontario agencies have honed their niche staffing skills to a fine point.

Liberty Staffing can help you find work that will help you gain the skills you need for your desired career path.
