What is Contract-to-Hire (C2H)?
Contract-to-Hire has become increasingly popular over the past few years with 16.8 million contract workers in 2018 (Statista). Think of Contract-to-Hire roles as a trial run where the employer can see how both parties work together. After a certain period of time, you are able to transition that contractor to a full-time employee. Annually, up to 18% of contract positions are converted to full-time positions (American Staffing Association).
Contract-to-Hire (C2H) shares a lot of similarities with Temporary Staffing. New hires start on an hourly basis and employers are billed only for hours worked, rather than an upfront fee. The main difference with C2H is the flexibility to convert the contractor to a permanent employee after a certain period of time (on average anywhere from 3-12 months).
Since budgets can take time to approve, this is a great option if you are gauging future headcount but can’t onboard immediately. This time period allows the employer to “vet” the candidate on overall fit for the role long-term.
