Re: Temporary Staffing Agencies at Rutgers

Dear Rutgers colleagues,

I am delighted to inform you about the newest “temporary” staffing services available to the university community.  Rutgers has contracted several temporary staffing agencies to assist hiring departments with conducting expedited searches to fulfill their temporary staffing needs. The contracted suppliers will provide expertise and guidance in identifying the most qualified candidates and generate a broader pool of immediately available candidates for short-term appointments.

The new contracts and process provide standardized practices, cost savings, or immediate needs and more options and flexibility to hiring units.  A list of the approved temporary staffing agencies and general guidelines for the new Temporary Staffing Services follow:

Contracted Suppliers for Temporary Staffing

Rutgers University has entered into contracts with the following contracted suppliers to provide temporary staffing services to the university.

  • Adecco USA, Inc. - specializes in Administrative, Medical/Allied Health, Dining/Environmental Services, Creative & Marketing, Information Technology & Engineering, Accounting & Finance, https://www.adeccousa.com
  • Robert Half International, Inc. - specializes in finance, accounting, administrative, administrative healthcare, technology, marketing, advertising and creative design positions, https://www.roberthalf.com
  • US Tech Solutions - provides talent on-demand services in the areas of information technology, engineering, education and professional administrative services, including medical administration, https://www.ustechsolutions.com
  • YOH Services, LLC. - specializes in information technology, engineering, accounting and finance, healthcare and administrative positions, http://www.yoh.com

General Guidelines for Using the Temporary Staffing Services

Departments with temporary staffing needs must use one of the preferred contracted suppliers.

Departments may request temporary staffing by requesting candidates from all agencies simultaneously or selecting a specific agency or agencies with which they would like to engage for a candidate search. Once you have finalized your search, you will be required to process a requisition to obtain a purchase order for the contracted supplier.

Any agency fees connected with a temporary candidate search will be charged to the department initiating the search.

Departments currently utilizing a temporary staffing agency that is not a contracted supplier will be provided with a transition period through the end of FY ’18 in order to transfer to a contracted supplier.  Questions regarding the transition period and process should be directed to your assigned HR Consultant or HR Generalist.

Class 3 and Class 4 Temporary Staff

The availability of temporary staffing services does not impact a department’s ability to employ Class 3 or Class 4 temporary staff. Departments can continue to work with University Human Resources (UHR) and our talent acquisition staff in the recruitment of Class 3 and Class 4 employees through the Recruitment, Onboarding and Classification system (ROCS). The contracted temporary staffing agencies are intended to supplement the staffing needs of the university community.

Thank you for your cooperation with the new temporary staffing process at Rutgers.

Sincerely,

Vivian Fernández
Senior Vice President of Human Resources and Organizational Effectiveness
