Can I hire a temporary employee through an agency other than Intrastaff?
Intrastaff, on behalf of the JHHS, manages the contracts with a wide variety of outside temporary staffing agencies to ensure that your staffing needs are met. Please contact us with your specific needs and we will work with you to fulfill your request, whether it is with someone from within the Intrastaff pool or from a JHHS approved external agency. The external agencies cannot source directly to you. The placement request and fulfillment must be coordinated through the Intrastaff office.
How do I submit a request for temporary employees?
See Submit a Staffing Request section above on this page. If you've worked with us before, you can either call your staffing coordinator or submit the assignment request form. We encourage first-time Intrastaff clients to contact us so we can have a one-on-one discussion to better understand your needs.
How do you ensure that employees are a good fit for the job?
We have an extensive screening and pre-employment process that includes skills testing (where applicable), certification/licensure validation, and interviews. Many of our employees come to us from one of the Health System facilities so they are already familiar with the environment. For those that do not, we try to place them in an assignment that matches their experience and skills, and that will be a good fit for both the hiring manager and the employee. This hiring process ensures that if you want to later convert the temporary employee to a permanent position, the transition is smooth and without difficulties.
What is the weekly deadline for approving employee hours?
Intrastaff pays employees weekly. Hiring managers must approve employee hours by MONDAY of each week to ensure that employees are paid on time.
Deadlines are as follows: If your area uses time clocks, KRONOS and Lawson hours must be approved by Monday at 1:00 p.m
How do I approve employee hours?

How do I contact Intrastaff?

Will I have the opportunity to submit feedback or evaluations?
We request feedback and evaluations on our employees based on the Health System standards for temporary employees. This helps keep your files and Intrastaff records compliant with regulatory standards. Clinical evaluations are customized to the particular role of the temporary employee. Non-clinical evaluations are more generic, stressing competency in their role, collaboration with team members, and adherence to service standards. You will be notified via email or phone to provide feedback.
How do I provide feedback on a temporary employee's performance?
We request feedback and evaluations at specific intervals, but you can submit positive or negative feedback any time by contacting your staffing coordinator.
What if I have a question about billing?
