Hiring new staff members is time-consuming and costly, and the cost to your company only increases if you make poor hiring decisions. Partnering with a staffing company can boost your odds of quickly hiring applicants who are the best match for the position and the company.
There are advantages of choosing to work with a staffing company for businesses of any size. For instance, small companies can contend more efficiently for top talent. These companies often don’t have a human resources staff, which leaves them at a disadvantage, as they are lacking in committed resources for locating and landing great hires.
Staffing agencies help bigger businesses by reducing time and money spent on hiring while providing access to a broader network of candidates. Those networks are especially crucial in today’s hiring ecosystem, where skilled talent is sought after and difficult to hire.
Even though there are fees associated with a staffing company, collaborating with staffing experts can be more cost-efficient than long, drawn-out candidate selection processes – or a string of bad hires. The knock-on effects of a bad hiring decision can be particularly devastating for small businesses and departments.
A talent acquisition company helps you identify the best applicants and recommends staffing strategies to help your business, which can be especially critical in these times. When you work with the right company, you open the door to a long-term talent partner that truly knows your company and its culture.
If you’re considering partnering with a staffing company, the following suggestions can help you optimize that relationship.
Look for Specialization
If you’re a marketing company, you’ll make the most out of partnering with a staffing company that concentrates on copywriters, designers, and communications professionals.
Frequently, a staffing agency’s hiring personnel are individuals who worked in the field in which they now place job seekers. Their expert knowledge helps them identify the best matches between companies and job seekers. Candidates that come from a specialized company often get up to speed faster and work out better than candidates from job boards.
It is important to clearly express your company’s staffing needs and timeframes for hiring. It’s also beneficial to provide staffing company personnel the chance to see firsthand how your company operates. This experience provides them a better feeling for your work environment, culture, and the kind of people who thrive in your business.
Having a thorough understanding of your company also helps staffing companies counsel you on which staffing solutions will best fit your needs.
Keep in Touch
Your communication with a staffing company shouldn’t just be related to specific hiring processes. You should keep staffing personnel informed of any shifts in your talent needs, as well as, reviewing the progress of new hires within the company. Maintaining communication and supplying feedback allows the staffing company to learn more about how to serve your company and make better hires in the future.
