Payroll & HR for Staffing Companies  

The complete Payroll & HR platform, as shown above, including Payroll Tax Management, is built for staffing companies to manage and pay their employees:

  • Automated real time tax calculations
  • Field-proven payroll expertise designed for staffing pros  
  • Ideally suited for “on the go” employees

2. Obstacles & Opportunities

The workforce and staffing industry have changed drastically in the pandemic. While remote work became more prevalent, new obstacles arose like the number of workers who quit their jobs to find a better work-life balance, the great resignation, and now quiet quitting.  

It is becoming increasingly important that staffing companies are aware of the influence of pop culture and post-pandemic cultural shifts happening as they are changing the workforce. The staffing industry environment is uniquely suited to addressing today's employment trends.  

Some Industry Statistics:

  • Three million temporary or contact employees work for America’s staffing companies during an average week  
  • Over the course of a year, America’s staffing companies will hire 16 million temp and contracted employees
  • 64% of staffing employees work in the industry to fill gaps between jobs or help get them a job
  • 20% of people cite schedule flexibility as a reason for choosing temporary or contract work  

Beyond the Statistics:  

  • The difficulty to identify and respond to the best candidates is due to the large volume of applicants  
  • High-volume onboarding makes automation necessary  
  • High turnover is common when leveraging temporary or contracted workers as supplemental employees
  • Paycheck timeliness and accuracy has never been more important as many contractors are often “between jobs”
  • The post-COVID work trends, like remote working, mean you’ll need to support workers across multiple tax jurisdictions

How can Bullhorn & Greenshades help turn challenges into opportunities?

  • Bullhorn’s ATS + staffing platform helps to identify, attract, and connect with the best candidates at a large scale
  • Residency, tax withholding information, and other critical client information is captured and automatically reflected in Greenshades for pay processing  
  • Greenshades takes care of all applicable tax withholding, filing dates, and other regulatory demands so that you are compliant
  • The system was designed for the ground up to accommodate even the most complex payroll scenarios, which means no cumbersome work arounds or manual processes
