Aquent, a workforce staffing firm for marketing and creative talent, is giving employees a break. “This has been a really tough year with the pandemic and with the economy,” said John Chuang, CEO of Aquent, and “employers need to double down on investments they make to protect their greatest asset: their employees.” Over the last eight months, Aquent has expanded benefits to all workers, including contingent staff, to include a 401(k) match and sick pay for all. For employer clients, the company is allowing them to defer the employer portion of FICA taxes on their new hires.
