Supporting Our Government: How Your Business Management Can Best Fulfill a Government Contract
Government contracting offers a powerful way to meet your business goals while also providing assistance to the government and the public at large. To fulfill your promises under a government contract, however, it’s important to ensure you have the team of skilled workers you need to get the job done correctly.
Here are several hiring tips to consider when your business has government contracts to fulfill:
Review Your Hiring and HR Policies
Government contractors are required to comply with a number of federal requirements for hiring. These include implementing a proactive equal employment opportunity (EEO) plan, tracking applicants and new hires, and maintaining pristine human resources records that comply with the requirements for government contractors as well as for other businesses.
If you need help understanding the obligations behind being a government contractor, or if you want assistance in crafting policies that will help you reach compliance goals, don’t hesitate to talk to your staffing partner.
Don’t Eschew Temp Staff
Temporary or contract professionals can help your company ensure you meet contract deadlines on time and within expectations, without exceeding your staffing budget.
Contract workers are ideal for two types of government contract-related situations. First, a contract worker with specialized skills can help you handle parts of a project that fall outside your core team’s areas of excellence or expertise. Second, temp workers can be ideal for helping your core team meet its day-to-day obligations in addition to addressing the needs of the government contract.
Partner With a Recruiter You Trust
Partnering with contractors you trust is a must when seeking to meet the obligations of a government contract, but it isn’t limited merely to companies that will help you meet specific contract goals. Working with a recruiter you trust can also ensure you have the staff necessary to provide excellent results on every task your company performs as well.
