Contract-to-Hire Service

An Expedited Interview Process:

The hiring process can be incredibly time-consuming and tedious — and HR departments are often so busy with other tasks that dedicating ample resources to making strategic hires can be difficult. This is why more employers are turning to staffing agencies to help them place contract-to-hire employees, as it eliminates many stages of the hiring process. Nxt Level will handle all of the time-consuming legwork of finding and vetting a contract-to-hire candidate.

Making a contract-to-hire vs full time offer is less risky because you are not committing to paying a salary and lofty onboarding expenses off the bat. This often reduces the length of the interview cycle, meaning contract-to-hire candidates can start working and producing value for your company sooner. The takeaway? Contract-to-hire may be the right option for your business if you need to add talent to your roster quickly to fill an immediate need or capacity gap.

The Ability to Experience a Trial Run:

Hiring a new full time team member is a big commitment for your organization, and it’s also a drastic life change for the employee. It’s happened to every employer: you go through a lengthy hiring process, use valuable time and resources training a promising new employee, only to realize they aren’t going to be a fit long-term. A major benefit of contract-to-hire is the ability to minimize this risk by “trying before you buy.” The contract-to-hire process is essentially a trial run to ensure that a candidate lives up to their resume and interview.

The benefit of contract-to-hire also extends to the candidate. The modern employee wants flexibility in their work life — and no one wants to be stuck in a job where they’re not a fit. The short-term nature of a contract-to-hire position gives the employee a trial run of both their position and the company. If they aren’t enjoying the role, they can move on to something else after their contract has ended — without any lasting negative impact to either party. The takeaway: if you feel like you need that additional time to assess an employee’s skills and personality before committing to a full-time arrangement, contract-to-hire positions may be a solution for your hiring needs.
