In the attached video series, we reveal the Top 10 Reasons why companies decide to use a Staffing Partner.
- Increase Quality of Hire
The best staffing firms specialize in specific industries and positions. Most of these specialties are where companies have the hardest time finding qualified candidates to fill their open roles. By partnering with an agency that has a specialty for your type of position, you are immediately upping your chances of getting the best possible candidate.
- Improve Productivity & Reduce Turnover
During times of uptick in business, full-time workers can become burnt out and unmotivated. Companies often see increased turnover, absenteeism and a decrease in productivity during these times. Staffing partners can help to bring in temporary staff to handle the increased workload, making your business more productive.
- Deepen Your Network
Staffing professionals’ success depends on their ability to network and connect with passive candidates, active job seekers and industry organizations. Companies who partner with a staffing firm take advantage of these opportunities to grow their network by joining attending events and gaining market knowledge. By using an agency, you’re granted access to this massive talent pool.
- Try Before You Buy
Sometimes a candidate can be a perfect match on paper, but just doesn’t fit a company’s culture or isn’t able to perform to expectations. Hiring on a temporary or contract basis gives you time to gauge that employee’s value before deciding to make them a permanent offer.
- Time Savings
Between posting jobs, sourcing, recruiting, interviewing and onboarding, hiring a new person is extremely time consuming and costly. Staffing partners allow you to focus on running your business while delivering better, more-qualified candidates faster.
- Predictable Cost of Hiring
Most companies have a budgeted headcount for how many full-time and temporary employees they can carry each year. When entering into an agreement with a staffing firm, you know exactly how much it will cost your company to fill each role.
- Reduce Liability
If you have worked in Human Resources or Operations you know the liability associated with every employee. Any temporary employee brought into your company is an employee of your staffing partner. You are not responsible for workers comp, professional/general liability, payroll taxes and unemployment claims.
- HR Compliance
There are more than 2,200 different laws or clauses that employers have to take into account when bringing on a new employee. A misstep or oversight of one of these laws can be extremely costly to the company. When you work with a staffing partner, it’s their responsibility to make sure all compliance is met, freeing up your Human Resources team to focus on the business.
- Talent On Demand
Many businesses are cyclical or project-based. When you need to bring someone on for a few days, weeks or months, why waste your internal resources to find them? Your staffing partner will have a specialized, work-ready pool of candidates that you can tap into.
- Value-Added Services
True staffing partners offer more than just the above. They become ingrained in your talent strategy and offer additional, value-added services to help your team. Some such services can include interview training for hiring managers, safety training for employees, marketing consultations, educational workshops and more.
