Why Temp Staffing Branch Offices Don’t Work: Cost-Effective Solutions for 2024

The End of the Traditional Staffing Branch Office Model 

The days of having confidence in the fact that your local temp agency has a storefront in the strip mall between the pawn shop and vape store are over. Today’s modern workforce isn’t interested in trekking across town to fill out paperwork during limited office hours before 1:00-3:00 p.m. In today’s digital era, 24/7 accessibility is the key to cost-effective and fast recruitment.

If your staffing support team is sitting in an offsite cubicle, how are they supporting your site?

Financial Downsides of Branch Offices  

Here’s what traditional staffing agencies won’t tell you about their business model. Their  branch offices come with high overhead costs that will cost you more at the end of day.  

  • High overhead costs: Rent, utilities, copier leases, and salaries for 3-4 employees. 
  • Need for multiple clients: These expenses force agencies to contract with dozens of clients in the same market. 
  • Challenges in a tight labor market: Scarcity of good workers leads to “portfolio management.” 
  • Portfolio management: Agencies prioritize clients with the highest markup when allocating workers. 

Even worse, outdated staffing offices are ghost towns. Workers don’t want to apply there, and if your staffing support team is sitting in an offsite cubicle, how are they supporting your site? Since MyWorkChoice doesn’t have the overhead expenses of physical branches across the U.S., we pass those savings onto our clients in low markup rates. Does that mean less support or a lack of attention at your facility?
