What is a staffing agency?

A staffing agency is an agency that provides services to help businesses with hiring. Agencies work with businesses looking to fill open positions in their workforce, and connect those businesses with qualified job candidates to fit their needs. Staffing agencies offer flexible, time-saving services that can help businesses hire both temporary and permanent employees.


What are the benefits of working with a staffing agency?

Working with a staffing agency has plenty of benefits. A staffing agency can speed up and streamline hiring, and letting an agency handle the recruitment process frees up valuable time and resources that your team can use elsewhere. Experienced staffing agencies also have connections, and access to a wider talent pool that help them make sure the job candidate they’re matching you with is the right fit for your company.


How is Acara different from a traditional staffing agency?

Acara is focused on people. We’re driven by the philosophy that people and businesses should be connected in ways that change lives. We don’t want to just fill positions in your workforce, we want to connect you with workers who will make a difference for you and your business.

Why use a temporary staffing solution?

Temporary staffing can be used to scale your workforce and fill talent gaps in a flexible and cost-effective way. In addition to finding talented temporary employees, Acara’s temporary staffing services handle onboarding and payroll for those contingent workers, easing a burden often placed on employers.


What is a master vendor program?

A master vendor program is a streamlined solution to help manage your contingent workforce. Administrative tasks, like onboarding and invoicing for temporary employees, can be delegated to a master vendor partner like Acara to maximize your cost savings and free up time for your talent acquisition team so they can focus on their own responsibilities.


What is an employer of record?

An employer of record is an agency that takes on administrative duties and acts as the official employer of a company’s contract hires. An agency serving as an employer of record handles payroll, employee benefit administration, and tax documentation for contingent employees. Having an employer of record is a time-saving solution that allows businesses to outsource administrative and HR responsibilities.


How does an employer of record work?

As an employer of record, Acara will handle the payroll and administrative duties for your organization’s indirect hires so you can focus on day-to-day operations and your full-time employees. Through our employer of record services, Acara assumes responsibility for liabilities with temporary employees, and absorbs tax, workers’ compensation, and employer benefits costs.
