Temporary Employees | RMPersonnel | El Paso, Tx

By Susan M. Heathfield

Temporary employees are hired to assist employers to meet business demands yet allow the employer to avoid the cost of hiring a regular employee. Sometimes, it is the expectation of the employer that if the temporary employee is successful, the temporary employee will be hired.

Most frequently, though, hiring temporary employees serves a business purpose for the company and the objective is to hire temps rather than taking on the cost of a regular employee. Business purposes include: seasonal customer demand, temporary surges in manufacturing orders, employees on sick or maternity leave, and short-term, clearly defined work such as a census worker.

Temporary employees allow employers to maintain a cushion of some job security in employment for regular workers. The temporary employees can be let go first in a business or economic downturn.

Temporary employees work part or full-time. They rarely receive benefits or the job security afforded regular staff. A temporary assignment can end at any time depending on the employer’s needs. In other ways, temporary employees are often treated like regular employees and attend company meetings and events.

Temporary employees are hired directly by the company or they are obtained from a temporary staffing agency. If an agency provides the temporary employee, the employer pays a fee over and above the compensation collected by the employee. Temporary employees, who work through an agency, may have paid benefits such as health care insurance. These employees remain the employee of the agency, not the employee of the company where they are placed.

Executive Recruiter | RMPersonnel | El Paso & Laredo

Definition of an Executive Recruiter

Executive recruiters, sometimes called executive headhunters, are the recruiting professionals who focus on filling executive positions within companies. Depending on the knowledge and experience of the individual recruiter, an executive recruiter can fill professional positions like doctors or lawyers, or they may be focused on filling high level management positions. Some executive headhunters only work within certain industries, or they may work for an executive recruiting firm.

It is important to differentiate between agency recruiters (headhunters) and corporate HR professionals who specialize in filling senior management level roles. When most people use the term executive recruiter (the focus of this article), they usually mean the people who work at executive search firms (companies that earn fees for placing applicants with their client companies.) However, large companies often employ specialized talent procurement professionals within the HR department that focus on building, grooming, and retaining the executive bench.

Search firms that focus on very senior level management positions often work on what is called a retained basis or retainer. This involves a structure whereby the client company “retains” or pays a recruiter to work on a particular high level job. The executive recruiter “owns” the job requirement exclusively, so the only way for a candidate to get that position is to apply through that external search firm. Firms generally use a retained strategy with high level positions, because the candidate search process can easily surpass six months in duration. The external search firms are called upon to do the search, but then also perform a variety of value added services such as assistance with salary negotiation, market research, interview set-up, candidate consultation, legal advice, and tenure and performance modeling.
