No matter what kind of work you do, when you need to hire people it is a good idea to use a staffing agency. They provide numerous benefits that can give you an edge in the hiring process and ensure that you get the most qualified employees. Essentially, staffing agencies do the brunt of the work in the hiring process to provide you with the best candidates. Here are four advantages of using a professional staffing agency for your employment process.
Makes Screening Easier
Staffing agencies are solely focused on getting the best employees for you, and this means they are experts in conducting screening. A lot of staffing agencies have screening procedures in place for prospective employees, which will make the search for employees easier for your company. These agencies have the resources to carry out the screening process, allowing you to spend your own resources elsewhere.
Saves You Time
Even posting a job description online can take a while, but when you factor in looking at resumes and scheduling interviews, it’s easy to see why hiring a new employee is such a time-consuming process. Employing a staffing agency will allow your company to put much of the work of completing the hiring process in their hands, which saves you time that you can use to complete other tasks.
Helps Your HR Department
Some companies have HR departments that are either small or simply don’t exist. This means that your company may just not have enough people to ensure the hiring process goes smoothly. That’s a problem for not only the company itself but for potential employees too. An inefficient hiring process can make people have a poor opinion of your company and even possibly discourage others from applying for jobs there in the future. If your company has an HR department, it is likely already working on important issues like employee benefits. Taking hiring from their existing workload can help tremendously.
Saves You Money
The hiring process can be expensive for companies and when you consider how much onboarding costs, it’s easy to see why. Many of the expenses of the hiring process are covered by the work a staffing agency will do. Also, because the staffing company will do a screening process and vet potential employees extensively, you can be assured that the person you pick for the job will be a great fit and that the resources you put into onboarding will go to good use.
