Recruitment agencies that have potential workers registered, keep them in a bank or a list of workers that they can access if a company requests a temporary worker to cover a maternity leave or extended staff leave, for example.
The high turnover of these workers needs a payroll outsourcing services with the expertise to handle issues such as:
- A great many temporary staff that need to be paid on a weekly basis
- Timescales that are very tight
- Not a great deal of information about the workers
It would make sense then to consider outsourcing this aspect of the agency's business to an outside agency such as a payroll bureau.
Ideally the payroll company selected would have features such as; no extra charge for the taking on of new personnel, the staff's pay goes straight into their bank accounts using the payroll company's BACS system, the processing of leavers and the production and supplying of their forms P45.
