The Top 3 Reasons to Partner with a Staffing Firm When Hiring

June 17th, 2016

Is the idea of working with a staffing agency something you’ve pondered, but are not sure about? Perhaps you are not sure what the benefits will be to your business, or if you will get the results you need to grow your company. Maybe you are confused about the way staffing agencies bill for their services and what quality of hires you can expect.

Whatever concerns you may have right now, let’s talk them over. In the meantime, we’d like to share the top 3 reasons to partner with a staffing agency when hiring.

Larger pool of pre-screened candidates.

A staffing agency in your area can support your short and long term hiring goals by supplying the company with quality candidates who have already been vetted carefully. From skill assessments to background checks, the staffing agency handles all the upfront details of hiring, then has a listing of candidates ready to come work for you. This cuts down on delays in replacing employees or when your company has a special project and needs people fast.

Strategic staffing planning instead of reacting.

A staffing agency partner can provide guidance and support with any staffing plan. This enables your organization to think ahead for the skills and backgrounds of the people you want to hire, rather than just reacting when an employee leaves. This aids in succession planning and peak seasonal staffing as well. And then there is the convenience of being able to call and ask for a temp employee to cover a short term need. Staffing agencies make things more flexible.

Costs of hiring are better controlled.

It can be challenging to afford the costs of new hires, particularly if you have a lot of turnover in key positions. With a staffing partner in place, all upfront costs are handled by the agency, including advertising jobs, interviewing candidates, verifying employment records and references, substance abuse screens, and more. Then the costs are spread out and factored into the contract over several months, which helps keep things under control.
