Why Should A Company Use A Staffing Agency?
Sometimes, finding an adequate candidate to join your team is hard work! And not only that, but it’s extremely time-consuming. From writing the job requisition to spreading the word to scheduling interviews and hopefully having a good selection, it can take up a lot of time. Staffing agencies have come a long way through technology, experiences, and relationships. Have you considered looking into how it works, and why you should use a staffing agency? We’ll list a few reasons for you!
When you go to post a job without a staffing agency’s assistance, you have to mess with several sources such as Indeed, LinkedIn, ZipRecruiter, etc. While some of these outlets allow you to target your potential candidates through specific requirements and criteria, they are lacking the personable benefit that a staffing agency provides. With a staffing agency, your recruiter will not only understand the specific position but have an understanding of your company’s culture in its entirety. Once your recruiter is well informed, they do the searching and handle the technology for you! The time saved here is crucial.
Many people can agree that “it’s about who you know” when you are seeking employment and stumble upon a great opportunity. The same can be said for a company seeking to fill a position, but it’s not always so easy! The odds of a current employee knowing someone who is perfectly qualified and ready to apply are pretty slim. While staffing agencies work to understand your needs as a company, half of their time is also spent understanding the qualifications and goals of potential candidates. Staffing agencies will have a selection of ready and available candidates who have been qualified before you will even receive their resume to go over.
While you may have an HR department that could handle the hiring for you, HR is also handling a list of other duties including payroll, benefits, workers comp, taxes, etc. Staffing agencies handle all of this in their own department while being experts in matching candidates to clients! In the instance that your company needs to hire on a team of five temporary employees to complete an extensive project, a staffing agency knows exactly what to do and will have a team ready for you quickly. More time savings!
There are many advantages of using a staffing agency for both parties included. As times have progressed, staffing agencies have found the median between the best technology and the most personable approach.
