Cost Savings - How Temporary Services Benefits You

Why use UAB Temporary Services for your needs? The use of outside temporary employment agencies is discouraged, as UAB may be held accountable for the conduct of outside agencies, and private agencies are much more expensive to utilize. UAB Temporary Services charges a much lower rate than that of outside agencies. Should you decide to hire a Temporary Services employee for a full-time position, there is no conversion fee, which outside firms would normally charge. All applicants undergo a comprehensive initial screening, which includes an extensive criminal history investigation, verification of education and previous work history, and a review of motor vehicle records where necessary.

Departments that are assigned temporary employees are charged the employee’s base salary plus a percentage to cover administrative costs. The department’s budget is automatically billed. No requisitions for payment are required.

For more detailed information regarding the use of Temporary Services, please contact the UAB Temporary Service Office within UAB Recruitment Services at 934-4030.
