When you’re a small business owner, you wear a lot of hats: HR director, payroll expert, boss, manager, customer service representative and more. All of these tasks can take a lot of time, energy and effort. Maybe it’s time to take some of those responsibilities off your plate by using a staffing firm.
Even if you think your business doesn’t need a staffing firm, you would be surprised at how that time spent searching, reviewing, interviewing, hiring and training new candidates could be better spent. Why not treat yourself—and practice the all-important skill of delegation at the same time? Here’s a closer look at the benefits of using a staffing firm:
- More time for your business: First and foremost, the top advantage of using a staffing firm is simply having more time to dedicate to other aspects of your business. It’s hard to focus on growth and development when you’re spending hours creating job postings, reviewing and interviewing candidates, training new hires—and doing it all over again if those employees don’t work out. Instead, you can outsource that project. Spend your time on the tasks that only you can do.
- Streamline the hiring process: Today’s job market can be brutal. The top candidates often court multiple offers from employers. If you don’t act fast, you could miss out on the perfect person for your job. Working with a staffing firm means they’ll stay on top of the fast-moving hiring process, so you don’t have to juggle hiring along with everything else you need to do. They’ll handle every stage of the process, from initial intake to onboarding the new employees.
- Take advantage of unique expertise: Depending on which stage your business is currently in, you might not have hired anyone before. In contrast, staffing firms spend all of their time recruiting, interviewing and hiring candidates—they have it down to a science. Why not take advantage of their unique expertise, and take some extra work off your plate?
- Keep your costs down: The cost of working with a staffing firm evens out when you consider all the other third-party services you’d have to hire to achieve the same effect. The work of HR companies, recruiters and employee vetting agencies can all be achieved with a single staffing agency. Plus, you’ll be able to dedicate your time to money-making opportunities in the meantime.
- Broaden your search for talent: Not finding the right candidates for the job? Staffing firms have a broad network of potential employees, making it easier than ever for you to locate top talent. The smaller your business is, the more important it is to find perfect candidates—and when your network is small, that can be difficult. Lend your business extra legitimacy by partnering with a staffing firm.
