Some people think staffing services companies are only good for hiring people for temp jobs or similar openings. But the truth is that a reliable staffing company, one with many years experience, is more likely to help you find the most qualified candidates for your job than anyone else. Here are a few reasons why employment agencies can be your best option for finding qualified candidates that stick around for the long run.
Staffing companies are in the business of helping employers find hundreds or thousands of new hires each year. They understand the recruitment process perhaps better than anyone else does, placing employees for temp jobs, contract jobs and permanent positions in companies of any size and industry.
Provided you’ve told a staffing firm about your job’s specific requirements and description, they’re more likely to be able to recommend the right people for your job based on your criteria.
You Get Access to a Better Talent Pool
Smaller employers are often at a disadvantage when hiring directly, as they can’t compete with larger companies in terms of salary, benefits and other recruitment bargaining chips. As a result, many qualified jobseekers end up disregarding them. Staffing companies help bridge the gap by using their extensive talent network and buying power, leveraging these benefits to the advantage of their clients.
Going through a staffing company is often a more affordable option for certain positions and processes. Staffing services save you money through the following:
- Streamlined Recruitment: The process of recruiting and training a job applicant takes time and resources. Outsourcing the entire process to an expert specialist speeds up the process while also reducing downtime.
- No Need to Advertise: Searching for top talent often requires having a sizeable marketing budget for ads. A staffing agency already has an advertising budget set for recruitment, which you can leverage to save money.
There’s Bound to be an Agency for your Specific Needs
The key to getting the most out of a staffing agency is to work with a specialized firm that’s most capable to meet your needs. General firms tend to work with a wider range of candidates, which means they may take more time to sift through thousands of applicant records to find a suitable candidate. But if you go through an agency specializing in healthcare jobs (provided your company is in the healthcare industry), your chances of finding the right candidates can increase dramatically.
