Almost any business or hiring manager has faced the dilemma of having open positions at the company without a good pool of qualified talent. This can be extremely frustrating and also costly to the company if open positions are slowing productivity. Thankfully, a staffing agency can be a helpful partner to solve this problem.
5 Ways a Staffing Agency Can Benefit Your Company
A staffing agency can be an effective partner in employment solutions. Here are five main reasons you should work with your local staffing agency.
You’ll Save Time
A lot of time goes into the recruitment and hiring process. Between crafting the perfect job description, posting it on appropriate job sites, reviewing applications, and interviewing, it can take an average of 23 days of work to make a hire. Add that time to your other job responsibilities, and there’s hardly enough time to do both your daily tasks and everything that comes with hiring a new employee.
Working with a staffing agency means that they are completely dedicated to all matters that go along with recruiting and hiring new employees. Think of all that time you will save and can focus on your other projects.
You’ll Get Qualified Candidates
Staffing agencies are the experts at finding qualified candidates. They understand the industry you work in, the trends, and the required skills for successful workers. This gives them an edge at finding the most qualified, available candidates. When you partner with a staffing agency, you will create a relationship. They will be able to recruit for a qualified candidate and one that will fit within your company culture.
You’ll Save Money
There’s a misconception that working with a staffing agency can be too expensive for a company. However, a lot of time and money goes into the recruitment, hiring, and onboarding processes, and unfortunately, there is still a high chance of making a bad hire. This is a costly mistake that can be avoided with the help of a staffing agency. Working with one can decrease employee turnover, allowing you to save money in the long run.
You’ll Onboard Talent Faster
When you have to balance recruiting and hiring responsibilities with your other duties, it takes longer to make anything happen. Fortunately, when you partner with a staffing agency, this will make it possible to recruit, hire, and onboard new talent faster. Since your staffing agency partner will be dedicated to finding the best candidates, and it’s their main job, you will have qualified candidates ready to start at your company faster than if you tried to do it all alone.
You Can be Flexible in Hiring Choices
Often, companies are used to hiring full-time employees only. On the other hand, staffing agencies are versed and knowledgeable in hiring for various positions like temporary positions, contract work, part-time, and full-time salaried employees.
Because of their breadth of hiring expertise, they can help you decide which type of position is best for your company’s needs and then find you the candidates that are right for the job.
