Our screening process begins the moment you submit your information through our on-line applicant portal. The process includes review of your application and determination of an applicant’s ability to meet our minimum hiring standards. Each candidate under consideration is provided with an in-depth behavioral interview and behavioral based survey. Computerized and/or written evaluations are used to help determine the individual’s skill set and level of proficiency.
A follow up interview may be necessary to make sure there is an understanding of the perfect fit requirements for our candidate and our client. Finally, all TPG and government required paperwork is completed and certain positions may require a substance screening, criminal background investigation, education verification, or credit check. The process concludes with safety training and orientation to TPG and possibly the client where our employee will be working to ensure there is complete understanding of all policies and procedures.
What type of staffing services do you offer? (i.e., temporary, temp to direct, direct, payroll service, etc.) What are your guarantees?
We offer a range of staffing services to best fit your needs:
- Direct Placement
- Temporary or supplemental
- Project Staffing
- Vendor Management programs
- On-site Management systems
- Payroll Services
We stand behind the placements we make 100%, but the specific terms of our Guarantees vary dependant upon the contract terms and positions being filled.
We strive to provide an employment experience that fosters stronger candidates and longer-term dedication which will pay off in dividends in the long run. There is a cost in employee turnover, and finding the right candidate the first time offsets this cost. No associate will be assigned to a client opening if TPG believes the assignment will not be completed.
One thing that makes The Plus Group different than other staffing firms are our employees, who are expertly trained in matching candidates to jobs, and up to date on current trends in staffing and HR.
The Plus Group is also proud to specialize in many unique workforce areas, with inside knowledge that assures we're most capable of making the right placement in a variety of fields, including administrative, technical and government placements.
Our internal staff receives training and we encourage Certified Staffing Personnel (CSP) certification. The majority of our staff are CSP certified, which not only includes the initial process, but the on-going CE units required to maintain that certification so training is continuous.
Working with The Plus Group removes the headaches of personnel management. You maintain control over all business decisions, and supervise the workforce and we supply the rest. We take care of all payroll and paperwork responsibilities, including unemployment, workers compensation, benefits, hiring, and orientation. All this leaving you with more time to focus on your business. For an overview of the benefits of working with a staffing firm, explore this website.
