Using an engineering staffing agency to provide contract technical and engineering staff can benefit your firm’s bottom line as well as positively impact the professional development of your direct employees. Some of the most significant benefits include saving time, saving money, balancing workloads, reducing paperwork, bringing new ideas, and supplementing your current staff with needed technical expertise. The resource-intensive process of sourcing, qualifying, interviewing and hiring an appropriate candidate can be delegated to a contract engineering staffing agency. For either short or longer term assignments, an engineering staffing agency can provide your company with valuable, cost-effective engineering and technical resources to help ensure your project's success.

The analysis of the effect of gender on salaries yields almost a continuous flow of studies throughout the year.  The majority of this research is conducted by workplace experts after long periods of study. What is interesting is that the studies contain similar themes but often have wildly varying data which results in different and often conflicting conclusions. Some studies suggest the gender pay gap is much less pronounced in technology and engineering disciplines than in many other industries. Importantly, women's wages as a percentage of men's wages have gained ground recently, not just in technology but across the economy as a whole. Although a positive trend is evolving, the research indicates that a wage gap still exists. No doubt, more studies will follow.

For many companies, including those which require engineering talent to successfully complete projects, contract placement agencies are proving to be valuable business partners. These agencies provide specialized engineering talent to their clients, a partnership that makes sound business sense from both a financial and project management perspective. Professional contract staffing firms offer an alternative to traditional in-house staffing models, one which helps their clients save time and money. Professional staffing agencies such as TRIAD Engineering allow companies of all sizes the flexibility to adjust work force levels to meet their ever-changing needs.

Contracting short or long term placement for engineers can offer companies a competitive edge. Companies which use contract engineers find they can customize their staff to accommodate budgeting guidelines while increasing productivity and allow companies to add or reduce staff efficiently. It also helps to limit payroll expenses by limiting benefits, which can be an additional 20-25% of payroll costs.

There is currently a strong demand for engineering professionals at the start of 2014, and many of the companies looking for a particular type of engineer need somebody to fill a position rather quickly. This makes it extremely important for potential candidates to be flexible and willing to begin immediately. In order to be able to place engineers quickly, references should be current with correct contact information to help increase the chances of being placed in a rewarding position.

The actual "independence" of an independent contractor runs along a continuum with some choosing to do it all themselves and others relying on temporary staffing firms.   Similarly there are degrees of freedom and flexibility with projects depending on the firm and the project. The key is to find the right balance of clients that enable the desired work-life experience. It is important for anyone considering this role to know and perform the actions that demonstrate independence from a hiring firm, to understand the requirements of the IRS classification of their role, and to be disciplined in their bookkeeping and tax filings. Of equal importance is to clarify your relationship with a temporary staffing firm.

Large companies are often able to effectively recruit new employees from college campuses. Recruiting engineering students directly from schools offers companies a large pool of qualified candidates from which to choose. Many large companies form a close relationship with targeted schools in order to generate interest in their company and to establish a pipeline of talented new graduates. Internship programs can provide benefits to both hiring companies and interested students by allowing companies to observe a potential job candidate in the position while the student is able to earn credit for coursework during the internship.  Many small and mid-size companies lack the resources to establish a robust college recruiting program and instead accomplish the same goal by partnering with a contract staffing firm.
