Five Important Benefits of Hiring a Business Staffing Agency
Staffing Agencies Specialize in Recruitment, Therefore They Know More About Recruitment
Whatever type of company you have, chances are it’s not a staffing agency. Because of this, you want a company that already has advanced resources, knowledge, and connections in this area of business management.
Business staffing agencies, such as our company Malace|HR, hires some of the best in the industry to sift through candidates – so you don’ have to. We know exactly what to look for, and exactly where to look.
A staffing agency’s expertise is based not just on being familiar with industry trends in your sector of business, but what’s a fit and not a fit in terms of qualified employees. We’ll notice things that a busy company may overlook.
Thanks to trial and error from years of experience, agencies already know which candidates would be a great match before you even meet them. An agency’s sourcing skills are generally more advanced, so you can expect quicker results in terms of recruitment.
More Candidate Options
There’s several companies that tries to tackle recruitment on their own. Of course, there’s nothing wrong with that, but there are downsides to doing so.
One factor is time. Where a recruiter has to rely on social media and job boards to post listings, and then sift through endless potentially unqualified applicants, a staffing agency already has candidates available that have already been screened, drug tested, and interviewed. Backgrounds have already been checked, and qualifications have already been evaluated.
This higher pool of applicants available through business staffing agencies’, makes them one of the greatest assets a company could have to help them save time. And time is money.
Less Money Spent
When a company hires someone and it doesn’t work out, it’s a major financial blow. In a 2016 article in Forbes magazine it was reported that one bad hire can cost a company 30 percent of that employee’s first year earnings.
Needless to say, onboarding takes strategy. And one of the first keys is testing out candidates, utilizing the valuable resource of a staffing agency.
Think of it as dating: No one wants to take the risk of marrying the first “candidate” they meet. The results could be a disaster. Therefore, many people enlist the services of a matchmaker to screen potential suitors.
This same logic should go into running a business. Staffing agencies are the “matchmakers” your company could very well need.
