Staffing Solutions to Help Contain Your Bottom Line

Are you looking to control your business expenses and improve your bottom line? Oxford Solutions, Inc. offers many effective solutions for reducing overhead, managing operating costs and improving organizational performance. Our staffing services can save you more than they cost.

Here are some key ways staffing services can reduce costs in your organization:

Convert fixed expenses to variable.

Develop a plan to staff your business strategically. Minimize the number of permanent employees on your staff to the level needed to sustain your core volume of work. Then, make a plan to proactively bring in extra help when it’s needed.

Bring in expertise on an as-needed basis.

Contract employees can deliver the experience and skills you need without impacting fixed expenses. Furthermore, on-site contract or temporary employees brought on through a staffing firm are often less expensive than consultants.

Lower benefits costs.

Using a staffing service like Oxford Solutions will reduce the expense of benefit costs. Most temporary employees receive benefits which are paid by the staffing service. Using a temporary staffing, payroll or employee leasing service may make it possible to offer more limited and cost effective benefits programs to these employees.

Eliminate overtime.

Use temporary employees to reduce the amount of overtime worked by your permanent staff.

Reduce training costs.

Reduce training costs and learning curves. Oxford Solutions can find you temporary contract employees who are trained and have experience using the skills you need which will save your time and money.

Streamline recruiting.

Use a permanent placement service to eliminate the costs and time associated with finding a new hire on your own. A staffing firm like Oxford Solutions can handle the whole process including advertising the job opening, screening resumes, interviewing, testing and reference checking applicants.

Lower payroll expenses.

Your business can eliminate the costs associated with processing and administering your company’s payroll and benefits by using a payroll or employee leasing service.

Reduce unemployment claims.

Using a temporary contractor in place of a full-time new hire prevents an unemployment claim from impacting your company. The contracted employee works for the company providing the payroll or employee leasing service. Therefore, all claims are the responsibility of the staffing service, not yours.

Eliminate operating inefficiencies.

Inefficient functions can be outsourced to services that can perform the work more effectively. The outsourcing service should be able to reduce expenses and improve performance. This allows your company to focus on its core competencies.
