Payroll Funding to Help Staffing Agencies Grow

One major issue staffing agencies face is keeping up with payroll as demand for their talent grows. This becomes especially difficult when customers take 30 to 60 days to pay, and you need to pay your employees biweekly, or even weekly.

Payroll funding is a financing solution many staffing agencies depend on to help expand and grow their agencies. Instead of waiting to get paid, payroll funding gives you the working capital you need to pay your employees, get caught up on bills and take on new contracts. What’s more, when you partner with Scale Funding, you receive the value-added service of collections services, reducing burden on your team.
