## What is a temp agency markup?

Definition:

A temp agency markup is a measure of the percentage of an employee’s salary that a temp agency earns for finding and recruiting the employee to the company.

The typical temp agency markup is in the range of 20%-60% of annual salary, while full-time placements are charged at 10%-30% of annual salary.

## How to calculate temp agency markup?

Example Problem:

The following example outlines how to calculate the temp agency markup.

First, determine the employee’s annual salary. For this example, the employee is making \$50,000.00 per year.

Next, determine the percentage markup charged by the agency. In this case, the temp agency takes 30% of the salary in fees.

Finally, calculate the total amount earned from the temp agency markup using the formula above:

\$ = ES * MP/100

\$ = 50000 * 30/100

\$ = \$15,000.00
