Working with a staffing agency can help you discover your industry’s top talent that you may have otherwise not encountered. Believe it or not, implementing the help of a professional recruitment firm can have several other benefits as well. Here are a few things to consider.
One of the perks of working with a professional agency is the amount of time you will save by having ongoing support through the hiring process. You can leave the most tedious tasks to the staffing firm while focusing on the final hiring decisions and projects within your organization. If you need additional support during the process, the agency is on-hand to provide it.
All in all, utilizing a staffing agency’s professional help will be less expensive and less time-consuming than sourcing talent in-house. Typically, the cost of replacing or hiring an employee equals about half the employee’s annual salary. This includes sourcing candidates, the time it takes to vet and interview each of them, and then the training process.
That being said, making a mistake by hiring the wrong person is extremely costly. Working with an agency can help decrease that risk and speed the process along, keeping the overall cost lower than it would be if you performed it in-house.
Agencies can also offer you more flexible options with the employees you hire and the services they provide. So, if you need seasonal recruiting help, you can use a staffing agency for the busy season only. You can also find contract, part-time, or full-time employees, depending on your needs, and only use the agency when you are in need. Truly, everything can be catered to your specific organization.
Even if you have an in-house recruiting department, they can often get overwhelmed and burnt out when it comes to finding top talent for your company. Usually, the individuals tasked with recruiting within your company have several other things on their to-do list. This can move focus away from finding top talent for your company and make the process take longer. Additionally, it can hurt your chances of finding the best candidate for the job. When you choose to work with a staffing firm, their sole focus is finding the right talent to add to your team.
Access to Top Talent
When you choose to work with a staffing firm, it gives you access to a broader talent pool, expanding your access to the people you receive as candidates. These agencies are focused on one thing: finding talent for your team. If you are in a more niche industry where finding qualified candidates is a challenge, a staffing agency can be a great help. You will be able to grow your network and become more well-known in your respective industry as well. Best of all, each of the applicants have already been vetted through the agency. So, you will save time and get the best-of-the-best for your team.
