Top 5 Reasons to Work with a Staffing Agency
QTI Client Relationship Manager, Bonny Bassett, shares 5 top reasons to work with a staffing agency.
Hiring great talent is far from easy. Today’s candidate-driven market has brought with it many challenges for organizations trying to recruit and retain high-quality talent. As a client relationship manager, I have heard firsthand from customers that they're struggling to find applicants, and often when they do, the candidates are not qualified for the job.
Recently, I met with an organization that had finally hit its breaking point. They knew their recruitment strategy was not working, and they needed help. Before this realization, the organization had hired not once, not twice, but three times for a role. This repeated turnover caused the organization a loss of time, productivity, and money, and they were still stuck at square one. This was when they knew engaging an expert in staffing and recruitment would be key.
Whether you’ve been struggling to hire for months or know you don’t have the time, check out the top 5 reasons why working with a staffing agency is the right move.
It's time to streamline your hiring process. When you work with a staffing agency, they take on the time-consuming administrative work. Recruiters will handle the paperwork, scheduling, applicant review, candidate screening, interviewing, and more. They partner with you to understand the role(s), your organization, and required skills. Then, the recruiter will do the heavy recruitment lifting and present your organization with qualified individuals to interview.
We don't all have time to build a talent network. Staffing agencies have vast networks of high-quality candidates to help match the right candidate to the role. Job searching websites may promise an easy hiring process but struggle to deliver personalized service with your business in mind. Not only do staffing recruiters have access to talent, but they’re the experts at sourcing and using databases to find the right talent to fit your business needs.
Create a flexible workplace. Utilizing a staffing agency allows businesses to be flexible in scaling their workforce up or down as needed. You can fill in with temporary workers to aid in overloading teams during a temporary gap. Have project work? Temporary employees can help you cross the finish line without long-term commitments.
Trust the experts. When you work with a staffing agency, you’ll benefit from a whole team of talented recruiters with years of industry knowledge and expertise. Not only will this help in finding talent, but they are experts on salary expectations and local market trends.
How much is your time worth? Finding the right talent for your business needs can be a time-consuming process, so why not leave it to the experts? Staffing agencies are here to focus on what they do best, recruit high-quality talent, allowing your organization to focus on growing your business.
