of temporary employees

Fast adaptation of the workforce

The employment of Amicus temporary staff reduces the time span usually required for recruiting. The time spent for a company’s recruitment, interviews, selection and hiring efforts is eliminated.

High supply capability

In many cases, temporary staff must not only have certain expert knowledge, but must also be available in the required numbers and fields of specialisation.
With more than 800 employees, Amicus offers an extensive workforce made up of people with different professions from almost all industries.
This extensive workforce allows for an exact matching between the profiles required and the skills and qualifications of potential candidates. Especially with positions demanding a high level of specialisation, this is absolutely essential.

Shifting the risk of employment

By making use of Amicus temporary staff organisations avoid the disadvantage of a long-term commitment that is often connected to actually hiring new employees. The typical employer’s risk of a continuously high utilisation of their employees remains with Amicus.

Effects on productivity

The use of Amicus temporary staff avoids possible losses of output – whatever the reason may be. With the help of our temporary staff, organisations can accepted additional orders and satisfy customers demanding accelerated delivery times.

Cost comparison

For the services of its employees, Amicus charges a hourly rate agreed with the customer in advance. Besides the employee’s compensation, the rate also includes any social security benefits and other non-wage labour costs, an allowance for administrative and sales cost, and an adequate margin.
Also important to know: Amicus customers only pay for working hours actually performed and confirmed by signature. Idle times as vacation, absence due to illness or national holidays will not be charged.

Amicus always recommends to compare the costs of our staff to those of own employees. For comparison, it is important to consider that the monthly compensation of an employee is increased by at least 80% – in some industries even by 100% – through the effect of the non-wage labour costs.
Furthermore, the actual working time must be considered. Through times of vacation, sickness, national holidays and other reasons of absence, the monthly working time to be compensated is reduced from 173 hours to an average actual working time of only 135 hours.
