When we’re the employer of record, you’re the employer of choice.

The “war for talent” is real. And often, you can’t hire the top performers you need as full-time permanent employees. Let Aquent payroll your pre-identified candidates as our employees. We provide a risk-free environment to offer industry-leading benefits, which helps you stand out to the very best Talent, so you can attract and retain exactly who you need.

Advantages

    Enlist skilled Talent in situations where a full-time permanent hire is not the right fit (e.g. headcount restrictions, variable work pipeline, short-term projects).

  • Our Talent care

    Offer Talent our award-winning customer service and complete HR support — from onboarding to benefits, to ongoing employee relations and professional development.

  • Pilot or scale up
