If you’re going to be recruiting and hiring in 2019, it makes sense to partner with a staffing agency. Here are three reasons why working with a staffing agency can help your business.
It will save time
Any recruiting process takes time. In fact, the U.S. average for hiring one position is 23 working days – more than a month of five-day weeks. During the time positions are vacant, productivity falls. Time, in this sense, is quite literally money.
One of the reasons hiring takes time is managers are not dedicated to developing job postings, interviewing, and other parts of the hiring process. They also have other aspects of your business to run! Hiring a staffing agency will free up their time for other duties and responsibilities. Working with a staffing agency dedicated to finding new employees can save time and make you productive sooner.
It can save money
It’s not only lost productivity that’s a concern in the hiring process. Training, retention, and turnover are also potential money drains in new hiring. Employees are not at peak productivity until they are fully trained. Plus, any employees who don’t work out will need to be terminated, or may leave of their own volition. Then, you are back to the time and expense of recruiting again.
Staffing agencies can save you money by trouble-shooting all these elements. They can screen via tests and reference checks to make sure you get the most qualified, best-trained candidates. They can give you advice on what tests to administer. They can perform reference checks with past supervisors, as well as reference checks for any criminal history.
It widens the pool available
Staffing agencies have access to the widest pool of candidates available. That’s extremely valuable, especially in today’s job market. They can recruit both active and passive job seekers. (Passive job-seekers aren’t actively looking, but are already employed.)
The wider the network, the more likely you will find the most qualified people in the least time possible. And staffing agencies have the biggest networks available.
