Engineer Staffing Agency

Our clients benefit from the support of contract engineers in multiple disciplines, design and drafting professionals, R&D technicians and more.

Contract Staffing is a popular service that allows you to augment your typical staff with well-qualified professionals for as long as you need their expertise.  Our clients benefit from the support of contract engineers in multiple disciplines, design and drafting professionals, R&D technicians and more. This key support helps clients meet project deadlines or adapt to workload fluctuations, personnel absences, etc.  Many clients consider our engineering recruiters as their trusted staffing agency resource.

Contract to Direct Staffing is an excellent way to evaluate a prospective technical employee’s technical abilities and disposition to ensure a fit for your needs and corporate culture before offering permanent employment. Our candidates appreciate the contract-to-direct staffing option because we actively market their skills and offer career options they cannot access elsewhere. They also value the experience of working for a firm before committing to potential direct employment.

Direct Placement provides employers with quick access to the most qualified candidates for their direct-hire career opportunities. Prior to placement, we interview all potential employees, verify degrees, check references, and execute criminal background checks.

The Benefits of Working With Our Engineering Staffing Agency

Companies and career candidates choose TRIAD versus other engineering staffing agencies because our engineer recruiters have deep experience in the nuances that make up the science and art of technical job placement.

Our team has the technical and people skills to perform highly successful job placements.

TRIAD is a longstanding member of the American Staffing Association (ASA). This affiliation ensures that our team is committed to the high standards of legal, ethical, and professional practices of the staffing industry.

Access to a Top Talent Pool of Local Engineers with Industry-specific Experience

Engineer Staffing Agency Testimonial

Our clients trust TRIAD technical recruiters as their resource for local candidates with industry-specific experience. For example, sought-after expertise often includes mechanical engineers with aerospace backgrounds; engineers with background expertise in medical devices, medical device wearables, small consumer electronics, consumer products, and more.

Convenience of Outsourced Recruiting for Key Areas of Expertise

Clients outsource their recruiting process to TRIAD because we maintain strong relationships with local engineers who have the technical skill sets they need.  This enables employers to focus on their core business instead of the demanding and specialized process of identifying, vetting, and onboarding candidates.  Outsourcing also protects the hiring firm’s brand from exposure to candidates that are not the best fit, and prevents an influx of phone or email inquiries that could overwhelm or distract office staff.

Immediate Access to Short-Term, As-Needed Staff with Specific Skill Sets

Employers often require short-term staff with particular technical expertise. Examples of when companies engage TRIAD’s contract staffing recruiters to hire for specific skill sets include:

  • To support project-based needs or meet project deadlines
  • To work through a backlog or support an influx in business
  • To augment their current team
  • To cover extended leaves of absence (maternity/paternity, medical, etc.)
  • To gain specialized expertise not already in-house
  • To assess temporary outcomes before committing to longer-term hires

Reduction of Time to Hire

Time to hire is a key metric in the highly competitive engineering job market. Companies rely on our engineering staffing agency to streamline the hiring process and reduce the time to hire.

Our recruiting specialists maintain relationships with many engineering professionals currently working in permanent roles elsewhere and either actively or passively seeking new employment.

These relationships enable us to reduce time to hire by quickly prospecting talented engineers that our clients would not otherwise know about.

Opportunity to Evaluate Prospective Employees Before Offering Permanent Employment

Our contract-to-direct hiring option affords employers the opportunity to evaluate a prospective employee’s performance before offering permanent employment.

This reduces the risk of making a bad hiring decision, because the employee actually works in your facility at your direction as a contractor for a period of time in which you can evaluate them in an on-the-job setting.

This evaluation-before-commitment scenario offers an employer valuable insight into the softer skills and personality-fit factors that cannot be gleaned from an interview or resume alone.

What’s more, you can permanently-hire with confidence knowing that TRIAD offers a no-risk period during which you may terminate an employee and receive a refund of your fee investment.

We Handle Payroll, Insurance and Benefits for Contract and Contract-to-Direct Placements

With contract and contract-to-direct employment arrangements, contractors are W-2 employees of TRIAD Engineering Corp.

This means that employers pay just one hourly rate for contractors, while TRIAD is responsible for payroll taxes, workers comp insurance, state & federal unemployment insurance, professional liability insurance, and benefits.

This allows employers more flexibility in staffing and minimizes their employment investment.
