Staff augmentation is better through Upwork
Upwork is the premier place to hire, work with and pay independent professionals online. With Upwork Payroll, we now support W-2 classified workers as well:
Engage and payroll talent anywhere in the US
Free yourself from the inconvenience (and risk) of payroll and benefits administration
Increased compliance with federal and state classification laws
Businesses that bring their workers to Upwork Payroll save time and money by leveraging Upwork’s staffing partnerships and integrated billing functions. Clients typically achieve a 20% to 40% reduction in costs over traditional staffing agencies. With Upwork Payroll, you retain the advantages of payrolling workers through a third-party vendor, while gaining the benefits of working through Upwork—increased productivity and collaboration.
Staffing agencies traditionally charge 26%+ of your costs to cover fees, payroll and taxes. Compare that to Upwork Payroll, where only 23% is spent on those charges and 77% goes to the employee. Payment processing fees may apply.*
