How many staffing services are there? This is a common question from our customers. The reality is there is no barrier to entry in this dynamic industry and it seems like a new service pops up every week. The reality is U.S. staffing agencies assign millions of people to millions of jobs every business day. Omaha, NE has definitely become a medical mecca as the healthcare staffing sales is 51% percent of all sectors (see Midwest vs. National staffing stats for all sectors below).
With so many options in all sectors how do you choose your staffing partner? Ask questions, specifically what makes them unique?
Although Aureus Group has been recognized by Forbes as a top professional search firm, we are extremely proud of our staffing business and our contract employees who work hard to help our customers achieve their goals. In fact, our customers rank our contract employees 4.25 on a 1-5 scale. Professionalism, competency, and dependability are always the top scores. I believe this is because of our thorough process, team commitment to our values, and the candidate experience with our team. Not only do we recognize a contract employee of the quarter, include them in our events, and provide the same benefits as we do to our in-house teams, we truly care about their career aspirations and culture fit with our customers. Here’s another fun fact: In a recent survey to our candidates, our in-house team received a 4.47 on a scale of 1-5.
Aureus Group has a contract talent pool in our boutique niches: interim executives, finance & accounting, and information technology & systems. From succession planning, organizational development, process improvement, payroll, financial reporting to network administration, application development, and business analysis our contract employees can integrate with your business, develop staff, and help during busy times or cover for FMLA. Whatever the need, we pride ourselves on being nimble and customizing our total staffing solutions to each customer’s unique situation and culture. Almost 50 years later, we are really good at it.
