What Safety Value does Allegiance Staffing provide to me and my company?

By working together all employees will be properly vetted and orientated on the appropriate safety requirements. Our commitment to creating safety partnerships with our clients not only reduces injuries but assures OSHA compliance. Our in-house Risk Management team can assist you in developing, implementing and enforcing effective safety policies.
What does Allegiance Staffing charge for staffing and recruiting services?
Rates are determined by each client’s unique staffing requirements, expectations and factors such as proper Workers Compensation classification, safety record and costs associated with labor force management (onsite programs, time and attendance requirements…). Our Business Development Consultants are experts in discovering your needs and business objectives which will assist you in defining the right investment for your staffing needs.
What is the average response time a client can expect when requesting an employee?
Clients can expect to be contacted for a consultation within 1 hour after requesting to be contacted online. Allegiance Staffing can fill same day request as well as provide resumes and schedule interviews for positions that require a more thorough screening process by the client. We assure you that every candidate presented will be pre-qualified with regards to experience, skill-sets and availability.
Why should I use staffing services instead of filling the position on my own?
Our team of recruiters nationwide constantly work for you sourcing, screening and presenting qualified candidates. This is what we do every day, which gives us the edge in vetting out employees who will do the job for you. Our job is to recruit for you while you maintain production, increase profits, retain and develop staff and take care of your customer needs.
Another important factor when using staffing is risk transfer. The exposure to compliance claims in the areas of screening, hiring and testing are very real as well as the long-term effect on U/E rates and Workers Comp Insurance when you hire the wrong employee. By utilizing a staffing provider like Allegiance you transfer that risk to us.
I have a current supplier not providing adequate service, how do I change and how painful is it?
The thought of changing providers can be a complicated and taxing or laborious task but we are highly experienced in managing complete transitions with many referrals to prove it. We understand that everyone is depending on you for answers and your profit margin can’t take another setback. Our Operations Team that consist of Certified Staffing Professionals, Recruiters and Risk Managers assist you with developing a 30 day exit plan that is ethical and won’t disrupt your operation.
