Learn Five Benefits of Working With a Staffing Agency

April 12, 2019

Almost any business owner or hiring manager has at some point faced the dilemma of having open positions at their company without a good pool of qualified talent. This can be extremely frustrating and also costly to the company if open positions are slowing productivity. Thankfully, a staffing agency can be a helpful partner to solve this problem.

5 Ways a Staffing Agency Can Benefit Your Company

  • You’ll Save Time

A lot of time goes into the recruitment and hiring process. Between crafting the perfect job description, posting it on appropriate job sites, reviewing applications and interviewing, it can take an average of 23 days of work to make a hire. Add that time to your other job responsibilities, and there’s hardly enough time to do both your daily tasks and everything that comes with hiring a new employee.

Working with a staffing agency means they are completely dedicated to all matters that go along with recruiting and hiring new employees. Think of all the time you will save and can focus on your other projects.

  • You’ll Get Qualified Candidates

Staffing agencies are actually the experts at finding qualified candidates. They understand the industry you work in, the trends and the skills that are required for successful workers. This gives them an edge at finding the most qualified, available candidates. When you partner with a staffing agency, you create a relationship where they will not only recruit for a qualified candidate but also one that will fit within your company culture.

  • You’ll Save Money

There’s a misconception that working with a staffing agency can be too expensive for a company. However, a lot of time and money goes into the recruitment, hiring and onboarding processes, and unfortunately there is still a chance of making a bad hire. This is a costly mistake that can be avoided with the help of a staffing agency. Working with one can decrease employee turnover, allowing you to save money in the long run.

  • You’ll Onboard Talent Faster

When you have to balance recruiting and hiring responsibilities with your other duties, it takes longer to make anything happen. Fortunately, when you partner with a staffing agency, this will make it possible to recruit, hire and onboard new talent faster. Since your staffing agency partner will be dedicated to finding the best candidates, and it’s their main job, you will have qualified candidates ready to start at your company faster than if you tried to do it all alone.

  • You Can be Flexible in Hiring Choices

Oftentimes, companies are used to hiring full-time employees only. On the other hand, staffing agencies are versed and knowledgeable in hiring for a variety of positions like temporary positions, contract work, part-time and full-time salaried employees.

Because of their breadth of expertise in hiring, they can help you decide which type of position is best for your company’s needs, and then find you the candidates that are right for the job.
