Another growing trend with companies is to bring candidates on board on a trial basis, with the expressed intent to hire them at an agreed upon salary if things work out.
This approach is derived from the traditional 90-day “probationary period” wherein a candidate’s skills and assimilation abilities are being somewhat tested to see if they will, in fact, be a good fit for the company for the long term.
Hiring a candidate on this “temp-to-perm” basis alleviates the potential risk and uncertainty of hiring someone directly in that the candidate is actually our employee throughout the candidate’s status as a temporary employee.
Should you ultimately decide that you want to employ the candidate full-time we will then credit any net profits earned by ExecBase up to the point of conversion, excluding costs, toward our permanent placement fee.
If you decide that the candidate isn’t going to work out, just let us know. We’ll take care of informing the candidate.
