Cost Comparison

Outside temporary staffing vendor or U-M Temporary Staffing Services?

Temporary Staffing Services (TSS) generally costs significantly less than outside vendors for full service temporary placements. External staffing agencies often charge a 35-60% mark-up fee for a temporary employee. TSS charges a 14% mark-up fee and as always, there is never a hire-on fee if you decide to hire one of our temporary employees working in your department in a regular position.

*Please note: the TSS monthly service fee does not include potential additional costs such as FICA, ESR health insurance, and unemployment
