What's the difference between recruiting and staffing services?

Recruiting and staffing services are related but have distinct differences. Recruiting services are typically focused on identifying and attracting candidates with the skills and experience necessary to fill specific job openings within an organization. Recruiters use various methods, such as job postings, social media, and networking, to find potential candidates. They then screen, interview, and assess candidates to determine if they are a good fit for the organization and the position. Recruiters often work on a contingency or retained basis, meaning they are paid a fee for their services only if a candidate is successfully hired by the organization. Staffing services, on the other hand, are more focused on providing temporary or contract employees to an organization. Staffing agencies maintain a pool of candidates with various skill sets and experience levels who are available for short-term or long-term assignments. Staffing agencies are responsible for recruiting, screening, and hiring candidates and then placing them with client organizations as needed. Staffing agencies typically charge a markup on the hourly rate paid to the employee by the client organization. Recruiting services are focused on finding permanent employees for an organization, while staffing services are focused on providing temporary or contract employees as needed. There are times when an organization needs both recruiting and staffing services. For example, if an organization is experiencing rapid growth or has a sudden increase in workload, they may need to hire a large number of employees quickly. In this case, a staffing team could provide temporary or contract employees to help fill the gap while a recruiting agent works on finding permanent employees to join the organization. Additionally, if an organization has a unique or hard-to-fill role, a recruiter may be needed to find the right candidate, while a staffing team can provide temporary employees to fill the role until the permanent hire is made. In these situations, a combination of both recruiting and staffing agency, like ClinLab, can be an invaluable solution for organizations. As a life sciences staffing company, ClinLab Staffing offers both recruiting and staffing services to help organizations find the right talent for their needs. With our deep industry knowledge and experienced recruiters and staffing professionals, we can provide flexible staffing solutions for organizations of all sizes.
