Our main headquarters is in Houston, Texas. We also have an office in Dallas. We are capable of placing talent throughout the United States.
Each individual is classified as a W2 employee. We pay the statutory, federal state, and local states for hiring an employee in the United States. We also carry extensive liability and worker’s comp insurance for each employee.
We are compliant with FLSA, Affordable Care Act, and OSHA standards. We follow a robust safety policy when training each employee before being placed in your company. We also verify I-9 compliance to ensure that candidates are legally entitled to work for your company.
Every candidate that we hire completes a strenuous hiring process. Each candidate must complete a drug/alcohol test, background investigation, employment verification, and technical and behavioral interview.
Because of our Lean approach to staff augmentation, we have the flexibility and resources to onboard a large volume of individuals on a short period of time. We still complete background screenings and compliance checks before placing talent in your company. Then, we facilitate payroll for a large group of talent with strong financial backing and full payroll infrastructure from our back office team.
Our company was built on contract staffing. Contract is our bread and butter. However, we have expanded our capabilities to strongly support direct hire to build long-term staff augmentation relationships with client companies. We facilitate the interview process for each client company, work diligently through the offer stage, and ensure the best possible change of securing the ideal candidate for your role. The employee is then employed directly by your company from Day One.
For direct hire, we handle each employee’s onboarding and removal from your company. With contract-to-hire, the candidate is initially employed as a contractor, undergoes our onboarding process, receives benefits, and is pay-rolled through Rayne Staffing. After a defined period, you have the option to convert the contractor to a direct employee of your organization, in which you’d assume the employment cost burdens, payroll, and benefit administration.
After an assignment comes to an end, we oversee the effective demobilization of the contractor, from providing formal notice through to finalizing payroll and covering unemployment costs.
We have two consulting and recruitment practices: engineering and skilled trades. We primarily focus on supplying niche or hard-to-find engineering and skilled trades professionals in critical industries.
We supply hard-to-find talent in Aerospace, Aviation, Chemicals, Construction, Manufacturing, Oil & Gas, Power Delivery, Power Generation, Renewables, Telecom, Transportation/Logistics, and Utilities.
Our teams are divided into managing partners, regional managers, on-site managers, recruiters, business development, and back-office support staff.
Our consulting and recruiting service is divided into two main focuses: engineering (led by managing partner Chris Tedder) and skilled trades (led by managing partner Justin Martin).
We currently do not provide staff augmentation services outside of the United States.
We do not place limitations on the company size that we work with. We are capable of scaling down or up to meet the specific talent needs of each client company through our intelligent approach to matching specialized talent with hard-to-fill roles.
Part of our relationship-building approach is to start with an assessment of business needs. From this assessment, our experienced and knowledgeable team is capable of building a full business plan that includes recommendations for satisfying hard-to-fill positions with specialized talent. Our value-add business analysis and business planning service is offered on a relationship-by-relationship basis with each client.
