What are the Benefits of Working with a Staffing Firm?
Making the decision to work with a staffing firm is an important one. While many people often weigh the pros and cons of hiring a third party to take the reins on open positions, the benefits heavily outweigh the drawbacks. Staffing firms aren’t necessarily useful in every situation, companies may have a devoted recruiter or recruiting department entirely capable but when that resource doesn’t exist or the recruiting department is spread thin, staffing firms are an incredible resource for smoothing out the hiring process. We truly believe in the benefits that a staffing firm can offer companies who don’t have the expertise, time or capacity to recruit the top talent they need. From saving your department time to providing the top talent in your area, experienced and specialized staffing firms have a lot to offer to companies that are hiring.
Staffing agencies often have a level of expertise and knowledge that far exceeds some employer’s human resources departments. Even if your organization has a recruiting department, that department may be strapped for time depending on hiring needs. At a specialized agency, the recruiters are experts in the specific field you’re hiring for which isn’t usually true of corporate recruiters or HR departments. Employees of staffing agencies generally have a higher level of expertise related to job knowledge, employment trends and recruitment practices by virtue of continuous placement of employees.
Staffing agencies have a larger network of candidates and connections than most employers. Staffing firms also often have relationships with workers they’ve already identified as dependable, talented and conscientious and who can fill a vacancy in a matter of days, or even hours. The network that staffing agencies maintain is a large one with which they have made lasting connections with the top candidates in your area. The recruiters at staffing agencies can tap potential employees who can fill any position an employer might have or anticipate.
When you add up the hours and money spent on placing ads, interviewing countless candidates and sifting through hundreds of resumes, weather it’s you or your HR Department handling that process, it’s an incredible amount of valuable time. Sure you may find excellent candidates on the job boards or by placing ads but how many candidates will be interviewed before you find that one gem? Outsourcing this process to a specialized and established staffing firm means that your company or department only has to interview the highly qualified candidates and leading to a higher success rate in hiring as well as gaining the valuable time you may have lost hiring on your own.
