More and more professionals are shifting toward temporary work, often via temporary employment agencies. Temp work has the perks of a flexible schedule and have more control over their careers. It’s also becoming more popular for employers of all sorts to hire temporary employees to fulfill various tasks.
Many professionals looking for temp work have used temporary employment agencies. The same goes for employers looking to hire temps. But there’s another option.
Enter: boon. We’re here to change the temp landscape for the better, and here’s how:
With Boon, everyone has complete control over where they work, who they hire, the rates, and the schedule. This truly allows providers to be their own boss.
When you work with a temporary employment agency, you’re putting the agency in complete control. Of course, this is part of the reason people look to staffing agencies. They don’t have the time to do it themselves.
Temporary employment agencies have all of the hiring control. Companies nor temporary employees aren’t allowed to communicate without the middleman until official work begins.
We conduct background checks and in-depth screenings on temporary employees. Every provider on our platform has already passed and is ready to work. For practices, creating a profile only takes a few minutes and they can hire right away.
Often, temporary employment agencies will have a pool of current employees that need work. So, when a new job opportunity comes in, the agency will pull from those employees. However, there’s no telling if any of those employees are actually qualified for the jobs coming in.
This could result in one of two outcomes. The temporary employment agency fills the position with a less-qualified employee. They have to search in the wild for a qualified person. This means advertising the job posting, interviewing and performing background checks, etc.
This could mean weeks of waiting. You might even need the position filled by the time thing come to fruition. For the employees’ side of things, there’s no guarantee that once you start working with a temp agency, you’ll get work in a certain amount of time.
Remember, the temporary employment agency makes all of the hiring decisions. If you’re looking for work and there’s a dental practice you want to avoid, there’s no way of communicating that to the agency. Dental practices may receive a temporary employee that doesn’t have the personality, skills, or even the availability that you were looking for.
Boon uses advanced artificial intelligence to perfectly match dental providers and dental practices. This means you don’t have to spend time on interviews or searching for the right candidate or the right job. Dental practices will only see profiles that match needs and wants!
Staffing agencies stay afloat because of the fees they charge. Every agency is different in choosing how much they charge, and they may not disclose that information until you’re already working with them. Often this fee comes out of the employees’ hourly rate.
For example, if an employee has an hourly rate of $30, the agency may take $7 out of each hour, so the employee only takes home $23 per hour. While this money isn’t necessarily being taken away from the practice or the provider, it certainly means that providers may not get paid what they are actually worth.
At Boon, a practice will only pay for the hours worked, with no additional hidden fees as there are with temporary staffing agencies. This way, providers can earn a fair pay while practices cut out costly agency fees.
Many in the dental industry turn to contract or freelance work because they’re looking for a more flexible schedule to better fit their lifestyle. But many employees looking for work have said that often, there’s not much advance notice when they have to work on a certain day. This type of last-minute scheduling doesn’t make it easy for people to plan their lives.
Boon is the solution to these issues — and more — for hiring temporary employees in the dental field, right here in Raleigh-Durham. Boon makes it possible for dental practices and providers to have more control over their careers, even when it comes to where to work, how much to get paid, and who you work with.
