Your El Paso staffing agency alternative

The 23rd-largest city in the U.S, with a population of nearly 700,000, El Paso is a sprawling metropolis with a welcoming western vibe. Flanked by the massive Franklin Mountains and the storied Rio Grande, Sun City is the westernmost city in Texas. El Paso earns its most recent sobriquet “Sun City” thanks to nearly 300 sunny days annually.

The economic foundation of El Paso began with agriculture, textile manufacturing, and transportation. Education, government, and construction are consistent and mature industries that help keep the economy balanced. While the region maintains its significance as a major transportation hub, the El Paso economy has diversified into more conventional industries. Emerging sectors include advanced material manufacturing, business and financial services, biotech, and medical device manufacturing.

Major employers in the area include Helen of Troy, Charles Schwab, ECM International, Prudential Financial, and Toro. Headquartered in El Paso, Fortune 500 company Western Refining is also a top employer. And the corporate office of Las Palmas Del Sol Healthcare, a large healthcare company with 3,000 employees, sits in the heart of El Paso.

Tech startups in the region, including pixelByte, LLC, have gained momentum lately. Of special note is Parabeac, a Latino-owned and founded company with technology that helps automate app development. Parabeac recently received national recognition when it not only earned investment money from Google but was also selected for Google For Startups Latino Founders.

The cost of living in El Paso remains relatively low compared to other U.S. metro areas. In fact, year after year, El Paso ranks in the top 10 in many categories that make the city intriguing to new talent. Most recently, El Paso has been recognized as:

  • One of the most affordable major U.S. cities (2019)
  • Top 10 cities with the lowest cost of living (#6, 2021)
  • One of the safest cities to live in (#4, 2022)
  • Best places to live in Texas in 2022 (#7)

What does all this mean for El Paso-based businesses with staffing needs?

Diverse industries, a strong entrepreneurial environment, and excellent quality of living make El Paso an ideal area for business growth and development.

If you’re an El Paso-based business, you may be feeling the effects of the economic momentum. When you do a job search in the local area, do you realize your competitors have similar open positions? Do you have job opportunities immediately available and don’t have time to wait for a month or more for a traditional employment agency to connect you with qualified job seekers? It’s time to partner with Talent Scout.

As an El Paso staffing agency alternative, Talent Scout offers streamlined staffing solutions for startups, small businesses, midsize companies, and large corporations. Our recruiters have immediate access to experienced, pre-screened professionals. By tapping into Upwork’s worldwide marketplace, your Talent Scout recruiter can connect you with in-demand global talent at the top of their fields.

What types of talent can I find on Talent Scout?

Talent Scout is a hub for independent business owners with years of experience. We also attract promising young talent. The University of Texas at El Paso (UTEP) is a state-of-the-art educational institution. Graduates of UTEP tend to stay in the area, adding their education, qualifications, and motivation to the job market.

Freelancers in the Upwork marketplace come from a broad range of backgrounds. Our specialized recruiters have immediate access to professionals with proven experience in design and creative, marketing, and information technology.

Design and Creative

A culturally rich and diverse city, El Paso is a haven for creativity, fostering inspiration for unique and new ideas. A partnership with Talent Scout gives you access to both local and global contractors at the top of their fields. Talent Scout recruiters make it fast and simple for you to select creative talent that fits your needs.

And you don’t need to spend half your budget with a staffing firm to find the right creative director, graphic designer, photographer, or product designer.

Talent Scout is a cost-effective and streamlined El Paso staffing agency alternative. Our specialized recruiters quickly connect you with independent business owners. And don’t be surprised if one or two of your hand-picked candidates list work experience with local companies such as Fred Loya Insurance, ReadyOne Industries, and Plastic Molding Technology.

Marketing

How do you plan to tap into the growing El Paso population? Social media marketing, email marketing drip campaigns, and content marketing are all effective advertising mediums. Your Talent Scout recruiter has connections with professionals in all these areas.

Is your business poised to broaden its market reach across Texas or neighboring states? Talent Scout will help you find a full-service marketing strategist or business analyst who’s comfortable working remotely and ready to put in full-time hours to create a first-rate marketing campaign.

IT and Software Engineering

Perhaps you worked with a recruitment agency for marketing in the past? But job opportunities change as businesses grow. More than likely, you would have to start all over with a different staffing company for your software development needs. Talent Scout has a broad base of qualified candidates ready for contract work as cybersecurity specialists, AI engineers, computer hardware engineers, and mobile app developers, to name a few.

You may find yourself collaborating with independent business owners who’ve completed projects for local tech companies such as Bright Sol Tech, Phidev Digital Marketing Agency, and the software development company Sunbelt Microsystems.

Use Talent Scout to find a freelancer

While El Paso doesn't lack talent, sometimes you need to reach outside your local area to find the professional who’s right for your specific staffing needs. Talent Scout has a curated network of vetted top-tier talent from Upwork’s worldwide database of freelancers.

Some of our clients need temporary staffing for one or two marketing projects. Others want to direct-hire a contractor who can work full-time on a software development project. Or maybe they need a project-based freelancer with web design skills. Our recruiters are familiar with these key roles, so they can help to find the best candidates who have the years of experience and specific skills required.

Think of us as a remote human resources department. We attract many. We identify top-quality candidates that are ready to work. We vet and screen for important skills. We provide you with a shortlist in less than a week. You directly hire the best fit.

If you’re searching for a simple, cost-effective workforce solution, contact Talent Scout today.

Frequently asked questions

What's the difference between Talent Scout and an El Paso staffing agency?

Conventional El Paso staffing services can be expensive and slow. That’s not ideal if you have a set budget or are under a tight deadline to get a project done. That’s why we created Upwork’s Talent Scout, a remote staffing agency alternative. With Talent Scout, you can quickly fill your job opportunities and staffing gaps, all while using a single, convenient platform.

Talent Scout recruiters are familiar with the key skill sets needed for the most in-demand fields. They understand what you’re looking for in a top candidate. Machine learning powers our recruiting tools, streamlining the hiring process. Your recruiter can quickly hand-pick candidates who have the experience and skills for your job and your unique needs.

Once a recruiter helps you finalize the job connection, it’s up to you to decide on your contract design. Perhaps you realize the candidate is a perfect fit. It’s up to you to direct hire if you choose. Many current temp agencies require you to sign a contract guaranteeing six months to a year of employment. With Talent Scout, there’s no need to worry if your project doesn’t require full-time hours. The candidates we connect you with prefer working on a project-by-project basis.
