Best Recruitment Under One Roof

Make the World a Better Place with IT Staffing

Permanent Recruitment

At Laraib World, permanent recruitment process has been designed to actively source the best candidate for each individual opportunity, whilst our assessment techniques ensure compatibility with the role and organisation from the outset. Our innovative recruitment and selection tools enables us to find, evaluate, and place the right candidates, delivering a completely customised strategic staffing solution.

With a permanent contract, employees enjoy enhanced job security and stability. As a company, you benefit from greater commitment and loyalty. Permanent employees generally advance, adopt more responsibilities and help grow the business as they get more efficient at their jobs through familiarity with the processes. They get involved in long-term projects and you reduce the risk of losing talent prematurely. More permanent employees tend to result in a more engaged, cohesive team

Benefits of hiring permanent employees

Loyalty

Investing in a permanent employee is an investment in their loyalty, which translates into more productivity because they are personally invested in your company’s success. This also creates a willingness to wear multiple hats to achieve the goals of the business.

Seamless workflow

Permanent employees do not have to ‘restart’ for every new job assignment, as they are already familiar with projects and your business processes, which ensures the workflow is consistent and uninterrupted.

Stability

As a fixed part of your staff, permanent employees offer you a welcomed level of predictability and stability, allowing you to be more strategic when making long-term plans.

Contract Staffing

Contract staffing is a method of recruiting and hiring workers on a contract basis for a specific period of time. The workers are generally called contractors. If a company decides to go down the route of hiring a contractor, there are a number of unique benefits that they can enjoy, including cost savings, quality of staff, and flexibility.

Cost savings
  • You can reduce your headcount by only engaging additional staff for a specific period of time or for a specific project.
  • You are paying an all-inclusive daily rate making budgeting more manageable.
  • As a company you will only pay for the time that the contractor is actually working.
  • There is a reduced burden on the company in terms of administration/payroll and accounts – there will only be one invoice per week/month.
  • Insurance cover – contracting company carries PI, EL and PL insurances, so the client is indemnified of the related risks without having to incur the insurance costs.
  • Downsizing is more affordable. Long term contractors do not have to be paid redundancy payments, where permanent employees with over two years of service do.
Quality of staff
  • If the contractor brings specialist skills to the company, they will be able to transfer some of their knowledge via training to internal staff during their engagement.
  • Generally, contract staff change roles regularly and their technical knowledge is constantly growing, due to exposure to different markets, different technical environments and different user and system issues.
  • Contractors tend to be highly motivated individuals who enjoy exciting projects and new challenges.
  • Contractors have considerable expertise. Contractors know that they need to stay on top of their game to stay competitive. In many cases, they will have specialist knowledge, job-specific certifications and experience in several different types of tasks related to their job.
  • Contractors give employers the opportunity to ‘try before you buy’. An employer can hire a contractor on an initial short term contract. The employer can then judge the how suitable they are for the job and how they fit in with the company's culture before offering a long term contract.
  • Contractors can integrate seamlessly into an organisation. They are task orientated, commercially minded and focused. As they provide additional help and expertise that is needed, they can quickly fit in and be accepted by permanent staff.
Time and Flexibility
  • Staffing challenges arise for a variety of reasons, such as business growth, demand cycles, technology implementations, and mergers. Using contract staff can help employers to bridge any gaps or shortfalls. By flexibly adding contract professionals as and when they are needed, you can provide extra support or infuse critical knowledge into your organisation at a time when it is needed.
  • Match your staffing levels with your workload and project requirements.
  • Contract resources are generally available on shorter notice periods than permanent employees, and are far more likely to be immediately available to start a new contract. This overcomes the issues that arise from the long direct replacement hiring cycle.
  • Ramp up your staffing levels on demand or cut back on demand.
  • Easy to terminate contract staffing assignments.
  • Employee numbers can be reduced quickly without having to legally make permanent employees redundant. Redundancies of permanent employees can have a lasting negative effect on the morale and productivity of employees who are not made redundant.

Whether you need people for a specific project, require particular expertise or are looking to meet a peak in your resourcing requirements, recruiting contractors and temporary staff can offer the perfect complement to your permanent workforce.

Contract staffing is a growing trend in the staffing industry. Employers continue to see it as a viable option, particularly for quick fills and short-term projects. It’s an alternate choice for business owners need help around the office in a pinch and even those who are looking to fill permanent positions with less risk.

Temporary Staffing

It’s inevitable in business that staffing shortages will occur, regardless of how carefully you schedule all your full- and part-time employees. People get sick, go on vacation, and have emergencies. Sometimes business is booming and you simply weren’t expecting the boost in customers and need to act now to meet the sudden demand. Or, you know that certain times of the year are busy, but that doesn’t necessary warrant you hiring a new full-time employee year round.

Scheduling Flexibility

A temporary staffing service allows you to have the flexibility to only hire additional workers for any additional work you have. Once your extra duties have been successfully accomplished, you can send the temp worker back to the agency. You’ll also have the flexibility of scheduling your full-time employees on shifts that work better for their work-life balance. For example, you can hire temp workers for the overnight shifts or during the holidays so your employees can go home to their families. This can keep morale in the office higher, and you’re still covered for those work hours.

Reduced Overtime Costs

When you engage a temporary staffing service, you’ll significantly reduce the cost of overtime. When you have no other choice but to ask full-time employees to work extra hours when you’re short on staff, you have to pay them overtime. When you engage a temporary staffing agency instead, you can significantly reduce those overtime costs and still get the coverage that you need to meet the seasonal or cyclical demands of your business.

Reduced Overhead Costs

Hiring more employees that are permanent so you have someone to cover those busy times at your company can cost you more than just their salaries. You’re also going to be paying for their sick days and vacation days, as well as their retirement benefits and pricey health care. You might also need to buy new equipment or supplies for this new permanent employee. This can create unnecessary overhead costs. On the other hand, temp workers don’t get any of the additional benefits offered to permanent employees so you save a ton of money. They get in, get their work done, and get out. You pay them for the work they have done and nothing else.

Additional Expertise

Sometimes, you have special projects that need to get done, but none of your current staff has the experience or expertise needed to accomplish these projects successfully. These projects might only come up once or twice a year, so it’s unnecessary for you to hire someone full time for them. A temporary staffing service can get you in touch with a specialist who can easily bring his expertise to the project and get it done right.

Reduced Training Time and Costs

Training new employees can be time-consuming and costly. It requires a significant investment and patience on your end. When you’re just looking for someone to cover a shift here and there when needed, it just doesn’t make sense to invest in training. You won’t get a return on your investment. When you engage a temporary staffing service, you get temp workers who are already trained to do the work you need, so you’re not wasting time and money.

Temporary staffing has serious advantages for job seekers and business owners. Whether it’s to improve current skills or provide a change of environment–don’t overlook these three benefits of contract staffing.

Temporary to Hire

A temp-to-hire relationship starts with a short-term assignment that has the potential to lead to longer-term employment. During this initial trial period, your company has a firsthand opportunity to evaluate a worker's skills as they tackle your projects. And you also see just how well the person fits into your office culture. This real-world assessment offers a far more detailed picture of potential employees than a round of job interviews.

At the same time, your temp-to-hire staff can see whether they’re comfortable with their job assignments, your work environment, their co-workers and their opportunities for career advancement. Through the day-to-day experiences of this trial period, both your company and your potential new hires can reach more realistic decisions about whether the fit is good on both sides. And that can save your company the costs and disruption resulting from a bad hire.

Simplify the temp-to-hire option

One of the easiest ways to find temp-to-hire employees is by working with a staffing agency. They have the experience, connections and skills to evaluate candidates on your behalf, which can improve the odds that your temp-to-hire worker will be a good match. Plus, a recruiter can help you sort out the more stressful details, such as salary, up front, which is especially helpful if the full-time position is newly created.

It's a good idea to state explicitly that you're offering a temp-to-hire position as you start the hiring process. If you're not certain whether there's enough ongoing work to justify a full-time role, mention that too. All that information will become part of the staffing agency's selection process, and temp-to-hire candidates will not be surprised by a longer-term job offer down the road — or your realization that there's not enough ongoing work after all.

Build good relationships with temp-to-hire staff

Keep in mind in mind that the temp-to-hire agreement is a trial period for your company too. And if you want first-rate temporary professionals to stick with your firm, it's important to make them feel valued. Of course, you also need to give them the support that's required to succeed at their assignments. Here are some tips for how to do that:

Prepare a welcoming workspace

No one wants to show up for the first day of work and find an untidy work area that doesn't provide what's needed to do the job. Give temp-to-hire staff a space to call their own, and make sure all necessary equipment, supplies and communication tools — such as email and intranet access — are up and running.

Provide onboarding activities

The first days and weeks on the job are critical for any new employee's success, and that includes temp-to-hire staff who will be evaluated for a full-time role. To help them fit in and become as productive as possible, take the time to provide a mini-orientation. For example, include a tour of the office. Introduce them to key personnel. Explain how your department works and provide a brief summary of policies, procedures and expectations.

Recognize their efforts

Temporary professionals want to be commended for a job well done. So be sure to give them kudos, just as you would full-time employees. If their contributions are appreciated and recognized for making a difference to the organization, temp-to-hire staff will be inclined to work even harder for your firm — maybe even for the long term.

Businesses that adopt a temp-to-hire strategy benefit from observing job candidates firsthand — and by hiring people who have gained a familiarity with your organization and its corporate culture. This approach to staffing provides a hands-on, realistic way of choosing new employees, with less risk of hiring mistakes.

This is a "try before you buy" solution. It allows you to work with our candidate on a temporary basis before having to make that important full-time hiring decision. We assume the full burden of expertly recruiting, evaluating, screening, interviewing, hiring and managing your candidate. After a pre-determined period of temporary work, you then have the option to offer our consultant a full-time, internal position with absolutely no conversion fee whatsoever.

Recruitment Process Outsourcing (RPO)

RPO is an external service provider that assumes all or part of its recruitment processes for a company. This partnership may be limited to staffing, but usually includes other efforts to optimize cost, quality, efficiency, and mitigate risk. Its programs may include: sourcing, screening, assessment administration, interview coordination, selection, pre-employment testing (background, drug, education, employment verification, and reference checking), offer administration, on-boarding, new hire care, and exit interviews.

Subject matter expertise

Recruiting, hiring, and onboarding the people you need to maintain and grow your business take time, effort, and skill; when faced with high-volume hiring, those requirements grow exponentially. An RPO’s core competency is recruiting. They are positioned to immediately address your recruiting and hiring needs.

Cost & time savings

Streamlining the recruitment process through an RPO can result in significant cost and time savings. They work to improve time-to-fill and hiring manager satisfaction while reducing cost-per-hire. They can also negotiate better rates with various service providers.

Scalability

Seasonal demands, new projects, and new processes can create urgent hiring needs. Organizations can quickly find themselves understaffed which can lead to a number of costly consequences, including lost revenue due to lower production, excess overtime, and low staff morale. An RPO provides scalability to manage inevitable peaks and valleys in recruitment activity. It gives you access to the right talent precisely when you need it. This scalability also allows businesses to convert the fixed cost of in-house recruiting to a variable cost that adjusts as needed.

Access to technology and tools

There are a number of tools available to track the health and effectiveness of a company’s recruiting and hiring processes. RPO providers have access to the latest technology and job search tools to find the people you need. Their buying power can also allow you to get better prices and more integrated solutions, saving you time, money, and resources.

Compliance

Due to changing laws and technicalities, employers are often not aware of changing employment laws and technicalities. An RPO streamlines hiring process and ensures complete compliance. The benefits of an RPO are endless. Realigning your staffing and recruiting programs with a qualified partner will have a positive impact on your company – and your bottom line.

“Recruitment Process Outsourcing (RPO) is when an employer transfers all or part of its recruitment activities to an external service provider.”

RPO as “a form of business process outsourcing (BPO) where an employer transfers all or part of its recruitment processes to an external provider. Recruitment Process Outsourcing providers can manage the entire recruiting/hiring process, or can manage one or two aspects of the process, essentially serving as an extension of the company’s human resources department”. This definition illustrates that RPO services are not outsourcing in the traditional sense, as working with an RPO provider is much more consultative and customizable than normal recruiting.

Our On-site RPO solution consists of a team of recruiters placed on your premises. The benefit of this solution is that the recruiters will get first-hand experience of your company’s culture and environment, giving them a better understanding of who would fit in. Our recruiters will also be able to facilitate all first-time interviews, referring only the most suitable candidates to your HR department.

Our Off-site RPO solution consists of a team of client-focused recruiters placed on our premises; either in India office or in the UK office. The team will be in daily contact with your HR department, communicating progress.

As the world of employment evolves, so do the tools, tactics and strategies to locate the best talent. A Recruitment Process Outsourcing partner gives you the ability to make talent the biggest strategic competitive advantage for your organization.

Our Recruitment Process Outsourcing solution provides end-to-end recruitment support for entry level to executive search positions.
