Challenges facing staffing companies
For staffing companies helping place employees with businesses in healthcare, construction, accommodation and food, retail and manufacturing, there are many opportunities for growth.
Taking advantage of these staffing opportunities in the market requires capital and steady cash flow. For many, that can often mean funding major expenses (such as payroll) through traditional financing methods while waiting for clients to pay their invoices — whether that be companies or the government.
Without access to funds, staffing agencies often struggle to meet payroll and end up passing on business growth opportunities.
Overcoming high-interest loans with invoice factoring
A staffing agency in the healthcare sector came to Liquid Capital for invoice factoring. The company had been invoicing $30,000 a week but had to use personal credit cards to make payroll while waiting for invoices to be paid.
Over time, it became harder to make the minimum payments on the cards and the business was held back from taking on new contracts and growing.
