In a temp-to-hire situation, a candidate may be placed permanently after a trial period in a local government position. This approach is a useful tool when time is needed to evaluate a candidate’s performance before a commitment is made to retain the individual permanently. Temp-to-hire is ideal for a situation where a candidate may have a non-traditional background, or is currently transitioning between professions. This option allows an organization, as well as the candidate, to ‘try out’ one another with no obligation if either party determines a match has not been made. Conversely, this can lead to a carefully considered placement that creates a successful outcome for both the government body and the candidate.

Outsourced Placements

Outsourced placements offer local governments the flexibly to utilize professionals that are employed by GovTempsUSA.  These individuals are placed in a local government position, but are retained as employees of GovTempsUSA. This option eliminates many of the expenses associated with retaining public sector employees. Previously selected candidates may be placed, or the firm can assist the local government through a targeted outreach to locate the right candidate to perform specified work. This option eliminates both the administrative process, and costs associated with the recruitment and selection process.
