Partnering with a staffing company

Companies within the biotech industry have begun to partner with staffing firms that specialize in the industry, such as Aerotek, to augment their staff through contract hiring. As a leading international staffing provider, Aerotek offers the flexibility to add staff to meet an immediate need while allowing companies to maintain their bottom line.

A working relationship with a staffing provider allows biotech companies the financial flexibility to spread out the cost of an employee over the contract period, in addition to the ability to focus on increasing its research and development instead of concentrating on hiring full-time talent. Hiring an employee on a contract or contract-to-hire basis offers a flexible cost cushion because the cost to hire contract employees can be significantly less than the amount to hire and train a full-time employee directly.

Save time and money

Companies that take advantage of contract staffing services save time and money spent on hiring and interviewing candidates, which can span several weeks, making it a time-consuming process. Staffing companies such as Aerotek identify, screen and place candidates with a company and administer insurance, benefits and paychecks so internal resources are not overwhelmed with these tasks. Aerotek will take full responsibility for employee-related costs including unemployment, workers' compensation, benefits, 401(k) and more. Staffing companies can better absorb costs associated with workers' compensation, unemployment and benefits due to the sheer number of employees that they manage. By partnering with a staffing company to augment its staff, biotech companies are able to retain control of all day-to-day management of roles and responsibilities of the contracted employees.
