With Headcount as the Employer of Record, we are responsible for time collection, issuing payroll checks, submitting local, state, and federal payroll taxes and assuming other employment related responsibilities such as providing workers’ compensation insurance coverage, general liability insurance and, in some cases, professional liability (errors & omissions) coverage. Headcount also manages all HR functions and offers supplemental health benefits.
In every assignment, personnel, length of assignment and pay scale are defined by the staffing agency. Headcount provides a dedicated team to work with these temporary and contract employees to ensure each has a support structure that includes your firm and the Client Company. Our streamlined approach of balancing day to day human interaction with our back office technology allows for a more enhanced personal relationship without the human errors often associated with the payroll process.
With roots in staffing, we understand the importance of knowing how to price each assignment correctly. Understanding the nuances of temporary and contract assignments is vital – if an assignment is not priced correctly, a staffing firm may lose money. Headcount’s flat fee pricing allows staffing firms to understand their costs and profit margins, making it easier to price projects profitably while using less internal overhead with less headaches for management.
