Temporary to hire – This is also commonly referred to as “temp-to-perm.” For companies, it is similar to hiring temporary help except that the client will hire a temporary employee with the intention of evaluating the candidate for consideration as a member of their permanent staff. The advantage is that a client company can try out the candidate before hiring him or her. 

Contract-to-hire services offer benefits to both employers and candidates.   In this process, the candidate begins their work as an employee of Grafton (as all contractors do) and then transfers to being a full-time employee of the client upon agreement between Grafton and the client.

What are the main reasons to utilize a contract-to-hire option?

Improved access to expertise in hard-to-find disciplines.
Establishing your own pool of qualified and interested candidates can be time-consuming and challenging.  Grafton has access to a broader range of candidates and the expertise to ensure that they are right for your job before you interview them.

Reduced recruiting costs.
You spend your time evaluating only the best candidates – and only bring them on your payroll after you’ve ensured that they are the right fit.  This reduces your costs overall by ensuring that you don’t have upfront costs on a candidate that doesn’t fit on a long-term basis.

Significant reduction of employment-related issues.
With Grafton managing the initial recruiting and the contract employment period, you have less to manage and less to worry about.  We handle the paperwork and any transitions related to the position and candidate.

Transfer of complex HR, logistical and statutory compliance responsibilities to a provider who understands these issues and has developed processes to effectively mitigate risk. 
We are the experts at both finding great candidates as well as running the responsibilities associated with the contract and hiring process.   You can be assured that we will manage the complexities of any issues so you and your team don’t have to.

When one of our consultants is converted to a permanent full-time employee, we consider it the highest compliment our clients can pay us because it validates the quality and performance we work hard to deliver. Every contract-to-hire employee is a reminder to keep providing you with the highest quality staffing services.
