Personnel leasing or staffing service is a service where a staffing company searches for and hires an employee according to the customer’s needs and leases the person to the client company for a shorter or longer period. The client company can influence the type of worker they want and where the worker should be recruited from. By leasing labor, the client company reduces the risk of committing to workers, and it is a good way to fill in work peaks or seasonal work. Leasing a worker can also be a way to try out employees and then take them over for permanent employment if satisfied.
1. The customer receives a quotation with a coefficient (usually 1.5 – 2.0).
2. The customer chooses a salary they wish to offer.
3. We invoice the following:
Most staffing agencies choose to invoice an hourly wage multiplied by a coefficient instead of having a fixed hourly rate. This is done to facilitate the transfer of the worker to the client in a straightforward manner if the client desires it. By allowing the client to determine the salary before hiring the worker, the company ensures that the employee has the same wage basis as others within the company. In this way, the client can take over the worker without needing to make changes for the employee.
The manditory employer contributions are applied to compensation for accrued time off (pekkanen), supplements, and days off. If we were to invoice a fixed cost, the expenses for, for example, overtime work would increase significantly more for us compared to those who hire the worker.
Bank holidays are invoiced separately because it is the customer who decides when during the year the worker should work. To avoid the customer paying too much or too little depending on when the days off occur, we have chosen to invoice these separately. This way, the customer pays the actual cost instead of an average.
It's fun to work at Dobra. Cooperation goes smoothly and easily. Employees' matters are handled professionally and quickly. I can warmly recommend Dobra as an employer.
Dobra's service is personal, so the onboarding of new staff is very smooth. The employees are professionals who know their job, so both communication and doing the work itself goes smoothly. If an interpreter has been needed, it has been taken care of for Dobra. We are very pleased with the cooperation!
We find the right employee for the right job. We are always involved from the beginning of the recruitment process until the end of the employment contract. We offer professionals in their field of work, and we can promise our customers a smooth staffing process.
The client can terminate the agreement without notice during the probation period. The probation period is half the duration of the agreement but not more than 6 months. If the client wishes to terminate the agreement after the probation period, the terms of the relevant collective agreement apply, or they can wait until the fixed-term contract expires.
Yes, the employee can be transferred to the client company for free after 8 months. If the client takes over the employee before this time, recruitment costs will be charged according to the offer.
The customer can choose the length of contracts with Dobra. If the hired worker is from Finland, the contract period is negotiable, but if a worker is recruited from abroad, we typically have a minimum contract period of 3 months. However, this does not mean that you are bound if the worker does not deliver as promised
The staffing agency can temporarily lay off a temporary agency worker who has a permanent employment relationship on the same grounds as in other employment situations if the staffing agency cannot offer alternative work. A temporary agency worker with a fixed-term employment contract, in principle, cannot be temporarily laid off.
During the period when the worker is hired by the client, it is the staffing agency that serves as the employer, responsible for salary payments, maintaining employment contracts, and other related matters. If the client later decides to hire the worker as their own employee, all these responsibilities are transferred to the client.
The main difference lies in the responsibility for the work. The client and the staffing agency share the responsibility for fulfilling the employer obligations, but the staffing agency takes care of the administrative employer tasks while the client is responsible for the introduction and workplace safety issues. A hired employee should have an equivalent position to the company’s own employees.
