Permanent staffing in simple terms can be defined as those employees who are on the rolls of the employer for over a long time. The permanent staffing involves hiring the candidates to work as employees on permanent basis. These employees are liable for every benefit offered by the company (employer) and are generally entitled for retirement policies, medical benefits, gratuity policies followed by the concerned company. The requirement for employing employees on a permanent basis is the first and foremost priority of all organizations to run their businesses smoothly and successfully.
Quite a number of staffing agencies and staffing firms are dealing with the deployment and recruitment of permanent staff through their staffing services to the organizations looking for hiring permanent staff for the vacant job positions. The permanent staffing services begin when employers’ commissions or hires staffing agencies dealing with permanent staffing services or solutions to find qualified candidates for their existing job openings. The main responsibility of staffing agencies in such a situation is to meet the employer’s needs and not necessarily to find a suitable job for the candidate.

These agencies have expertise in providing permanent staffing at various levels. The streamlined system of these agencies are well tuned to understand their client requirements in selecting the right candidate that matches or gels with their (client organization) needs both culturally and technically.
