  • Temp-to-Hire Positions

    Our “temp-to-hire” solutions allow a Marketplace employee to work at your site for a trial period allowing you and the employee time to consider a “permanent” employment relationship.

    A temp-to-hire option can offer your organization several key advantages. It can help you eliminate the financial burden you assume in providing workers' benefits and the costs associated with hiring or firing (e.g. advertising, screening, processing, and training). In addition, this type of employment relationship may help you increase labor hours without adding to your staff.
