Contract-to-Hire Services

Planet Forward offers contract-to-hire staffing services to determine if an employee is the right fit for the position and the company by allowing our clients to observe the employee on the job. Once the contract period is complete, the option is available to hire the employee on a permanent basis within the organization.

Benefits for this Route:

  • The hiring process — from posting to position — can take up to 90 days on average, whereas on-boarding of a contract-to-hire resource typically takes less than a week
  • Save time — Planet Forward will manage the administrative tasks associated with on-boarding, freeing up our client’s time
  • Commitment-free — Clients have the ability to evaluate the performance of an individual, and also how they fit within the culture, which is often challenging to do during an interview

Direct Hire (Permanent) Services

Identifying direct-hire (permanent) talent requires a different approach to recruitment. At Planet Forward, our strategy is to understand the culture and business environment of our client and create a personalized approach to finding candidates.

Direct Hire (Permanent) Services

Our streamlined approach allows our clients to reduce human resources and administrative costs and focus on what is most important — their business. Through our permanent-hire process, Planet Forward will place a new employee directly within your organization for a competitive one-time fee, based upon the employee’s first-year salary. Should problems arise, Planet Forward will replace the employee at no cost during the guarantee period.
