If you’re accustomed to handling all your staffing needs in house, you may be a bit wary of outsourcing it at first. That’s totally understandable because you no doubt want to be assured that you’ll get great results for your investment. The good news is, working with a staffing agency can help in more ways than you’re probably aware of.
1. You Tap into Experience
As a company owner or leader, you know your business better than anyone else. That’s because you’ve spent years studying your industry, working in it, and getting firsthand experience with it. Us too. With staffing agencies, our business is people and the hiring process. We understand that personalities, culture fit, skills, and more go into finding the right person for any given job, and can quickly sort through applicants to find people who will fit well. Plus, staffing agencies are familiar with ever-changing legislation regarding the hiring process, so it’s easier for you to remain compliant.
2. You’ll Get Better Quality Candidates
Staffing agencies spend their days networking, so we come across all kinds of people who are ideal for various positions, plus know the best places to look for specific types of employees. Moreover, we’re always on the hunt and maintain lists of candidates. We’re able to produce many people who are qualified and give you the opportunity to choose who you think is best.
3. You Get Instant Scalability
Labor is oftentimes the biggest expense a company will have and many industries see seasonal shifts or need scale up to meet temporary demands. When you work with a staffing agency, particularly one that gets to know your business well, it’s easy to have a team that meets your current demands.
4. You Can Save Money
Hiring people is expensive. Depending on the role you’re trying to fill, it typically starts at about $2,000 for an entry-level blue-collar position and hits as high as $7,000 for a managerial position. This is one of the many reasons why it’s important to choose the right person to begin with; you want an employee who is not only a great fit, but who will stick around for a long time too. Your staffing agency can also help you make sure you’re offering the right package to attract and retain your talent, so you get better people to begin with and keep them happy.
