Employer of record

Focus on what you do best with Ascen's Employer of Record, purpose-built for staffing organizations.

The Problem

Matching clients and candidates is only half the challenge in contract staffing.

You are great at matching clients with candidates with your special strategy, but there's a problem, operating a temporary staffing business is operationally intense and especially so as you expand across states and countries.

You need professional and general liability insurance with high limits, workers' compensation insurance, state registrations, knowledge of payroll and other HR laws, plus the myriad of operations required to run a staffing firm smoothly.

Embedded Payroll Funding

Funding is critical in temporary staffing. Ascen's offers optional embedded financing so you grow without constraints.

Temporary staffing requires large amounts of capital: pay is required weekly or bi-weekly but clients pay in net 30 days or more. Many staffing firms turn to lenders or factoring companies to provide payroll funding. Ascen's embedded financing provides some key benefits:

  1. Funding built into the EOR
  2. No need to post invoices to the factoring firm and manage cash
  3. No need to manage collections
  4. No personal guarantees or liens

So good, I don't think about it
After starting [our staffing agency], Ascen has been very responsive and the platform is great. Don't take this the wrong way, but it's so good, I don't think about it.

Easy to Grow Our Contract Footprint
We have been nothing short of delighted with Ascen as the exclusive contract partner of [our agency]. They have been super easy to work with and more importantly our clients and candidates have all been super happy. The team have been exceptionally responsive when any changes are required or questions need answering. The portal itself is also terrific; it gives super clear insight as to when revenue is coming, how much has been received and this allows for super accurate forecasting. If I’m honest, I wasn’t considering having any contract as part of our offering at [our agency] with the headache of financing or having to run it all ourselves; now with Ascen as our partner we have a strategic objective to continue to grow our contract footprint
