How does one go about choosing staffing solutions in El Paso TX?
There are for major criterion to use before choosing a staffing solution. The first consideration should be industry experience. If the company has no experience in your industry, then it’s not right for you. A good staffing agency must be experienced in your industry and able to understand your exact needs. Experiences also allow them to draw from a bigger talent pool and act as basis for market intelligence.
Next, you have to look at their references. Of course, the emphasis should be on the class of reference they provide. Make sure that the references are from companies dealing in similar products or services like yours.
Also find out whether or not a staffing agency follows all the legal processes. You really don’t want to deal with a staffing solution which doesn’t follow all the necessary legal procedures. It can land your business in trouble.
When choosing staffing solution in El Paso TX, ensure that they screen their workers. A reputable staffing agency should perform background checks to keep away from potential legal problems. It also provides protection against identity theft. You want to have trustworthy candidates.
When looking for a job, there are various places that you can look. You might go to individual websites to see what openings a company has or use websites like Monster or CareerBuilder.
When employers have an opening at their company, they too have a variety of options to post the position. They can post it online but you many people are really going to see it? Well in both cases, there is another choice.
That other choice are staffing solutions, or sometimes known as staffing agencies. But what is a staffing agency and how can they help?
Staffing solutions are agencies that help various companies find the qualified person for their vacant positions. The way they work is the company provides the agency with a job description and requirements for the open position. This information is put into a database. It is then used to filter through the different applicants and finding the potential right match.
Some of these agencies can concentrate in a certain area of expertise, such as finding employees for only technical work or some other group of occupations. Others may only deal with finding temporary workers for companies. Even some agencies can help with company’s human resources departments with their safety programs and benefits plans of the company.
But staffing solutions in El Paso are not only for companies looking for the right person for the job. Some staffing solutions also help applicants find the right job for them as well. Applicants can send in their resumes.

Last week the jobs report for the month of September was released. The report was delayed more than two weeks because of the government shutdown. The report says employers added 148,000 jobs as the unemployment rate for the country fell to 7.2 percent.
The numbers in the job report are a little disappointing compared to the number in August’s report and the numbers projected in survey conducted by Bloomberg News. In the month of August, 193,000 jobs were added and about 180,000 jobs were projected for last month.
Despite the somewhat disappointing results, the unemployment rate in the country continues to drop at a slight pace and the economy is recovering at a moderate pace as well.
The unemployment rate has dropped almost one percent from a year ago and the last time the employment rate was at this level was back in late 2008, according to Trading Economics.
However the recent drop in the unemployment rate is deceptive, according to David Payne of Kiplinger. He says ‘many unemployed are giving up the search for work and leaving the labor force. If this weren’t the case, the decline in the unemployment rate from 7.6% in June to 7.2% in September would likely have been just half of what it was. The number dropping out brought the labor force participation rate down from 63.5% to 63.2% during the same period.’
The job report for the month of October is expected to be released on November 8th. The numbers for this month aren’t expected to be high because of the government shutdown. The Labor Department will include workers who were furloughed during the shutdown as unemployed. So for the second straight month, the unemployment rate could be deceptive.
