Earlier this year, we introduced a new service level offering for Top Echelon Contracting: TEC Express. Express is designed for contractors who are “office professionals” and would qualify for the Workers Compensation Code 8810 (or equivalent).

However, TEC offers more than just two service levels —Express and Premium. We can also facilitate the placement of 1099 independent contractors.

We’ve been told for years that recruiters need an easy solution to place independent contractors on a 1099 basis with NO start-up fee. And at TEC, we can help make that both easy and profitable!

Calculate your profit on 1099 contractors

That’s why we’re inviting you to run a quote on our online Recruiter Profit Calculator. You can see how much money you can potentially make per hour placing a contractor using our back office. And you can do it for all three service level offerings—1099, W-2 Express, and W-2 Premium.

To calculate your quote, all you have to do is enter the Bill Rate, Pay Rate, and the State the contractor will work. Then the Profit Calculator will display your estimated profit you would make each hour the contractor worked for all three service levels.

Keep in mind that the profit per hour estimates are just that: estimates. Once you start the process of submitting the details of the placement to us, we’ll be able to nail down the exact profit that you will earn.

Let’s say for example you have the opportunity to place a 1099 independent contractor at your client:

  • $75 per hour bill rate
  • $50 per hour pay rate
  • Ohio is the work state

Using that criteria, the estimated recruiter profit per hour for placing a 1099 contractor is $20.52 per hour.

It’s important to note that the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) has clearly defined guidelines for what constitutes a 1099 contractor and what constitutes a W-2 employee. Top Echelon Contracting adheres strictly to these guidelines when serving as the back office for contract placements. As a result, TEC will help determine whether the contractor truly qualifies as a 1099 independent contractor based on the IRS guidelines, or as a W-2 contractor.

You CAN place 1099 contractors for MORE money. And Top Echelon Contracting can help!

You already know that you should offer contract staffing.

You know it can help you keep income flowing when direct hire job orders are sparse. And you know that more and more of your clients want contractors and are probably going to your competitors to get them.

So why aren’t you doing it? Well, there’s a misconception out there that contracting is difficult. Let’s face it, it sounds difficult.

Who is the legal employer of the contractors? What about taxes and Workers’ Compensation? What about the payroll?

Offer contract staffing . . . and make more money!

The truth is, you only need to know one thing to offer contract staffing: how to recruit candidates.

That is the only prerequisite for making contract placements as a recruiter. How is that possible?

Well, from the recruiter’s perspective, the process is almost identical to a direct hire situation. You secure a job order, you source candidates, you set up phone interviews, the company selects one of them, and you receive a fee for your services.

Yes, there are certain back office tasks that must be completed, and those tasks can be complicated and time-consuming. But you don’t have to be the one to handle them . . . or know anything about them, for that matter.

You can outsource those tasks and responsibilities to a recruitment back office like Top Echelon Contracting.

TEC works behind the scenes to take care of all the little details, and you get to do the fun parts. It’s an arrangement that’s worked quite well for thousands of recruiters across the country.

Three-step plan for success

With that in mind, here is a three-step plan for getting started in contract staffing:

  1. Tell your clients that you can provide contractors.
  2. Ask your candidates if they would consider working on a contract basis.
  3. Call Top Echelon Contracting at (888) 627-3678 and tell a Contract Staffing Administrator that you’d like to use our back office to offer contract staffing services.

That’s all it takes. You can go from a 100% direct hire recruiting desk to one that includes both direct hire and contracting in a matter of days. We’re talking about a very small up-front investment of time and energy for what is potentially a large return on that investment.

And all you have to know is what you already know best!
