Temp to Perm or
o One of the more popular approaches
used to improve the internal staffing process, has been the "temp to perm"
or contingent hire methodology. Under this model, ATR, in concert with
client management, would identify, screen, and provide candidates that
may, at the clients option, become a permanent employee of the client.
o Initially these candidates
would perform services for the client as ATR employees. During an initial
trial period the client has the opportunity to make a thorough evaluation
of the employee's demonstrated value to the organization prior to making
a full time employment commitment.
o Upon the successful completion
of a trial term (typically 6 months), the employee at the client's sole
discretion, would convert to the clients payroll as a permanent employee
of the client. This "try and buy" approach maximizes the clients' ability
to make a hiring decision, in a timely manner, while minimizing the risks
associated with direct employment.

been developed by ATR to accommodate the client's growth due to intensive
staffing situations, such as the award of a large government or commercial

qualify and screen job candidates against specific requirements.
