What Are the Benefits of Working with a Staffing Agency?
In need of high-quality employees for an opening you have at your company? Consider partnering with a staffing agency to fill the position.
For businesses that have never worked with a staffing agency before, there is a common misconception that these firms only place people in temporary jobs. For individuals, there is a common misconception that they must pay to work with the recruiter and find openings.
In actuality, most businesses and job seekers can benefit from working with staffing agencies. Here are just a few examples of some major staffing agency benefits for you to consider.
For job-seekers, working with a staffing firm helps them find openings that actually fit their needs and qualifications much more efficiently. It takes a lot of the time and work out of the process of searching for openings, which is especially beneficial for people who are still working a full-time job.
For companies, it becomes unnecessary to maintain entire staffing departments and processes dedicated to finding employees. Instead, all of that work can be outsourced, allowing the business to focus on its important everyday operations and avoiding potentially clunky hiring processes, especially for businesses that aren’t constantly headhunting.
A high-quality staffing agency will have recruiters who take the time to get to know their clients. With individuals, they want to know what the job-seeker is looking for, what sort of career goals they have and the kind of work environment and company culture they’re looking for. With businesses, they carefully analyze the kind of qualifications a company needs, what sort of cultural fit they’re looking for and what the top priorities are for the company in seeking new employees.
Recruiters for staffing agencies are experts in identifying all of these characteristics, which helps them make the recruiting process go smoother and faster.
Access and exposure
Through staffing agencies, individuals and businesses get connected in ways they likely would not have without the agency’s assistance. There’s a whole lot of noise and competition out there that often prevents qualified candidates from getting matched with ideal openings, and staffing agencies cut through that noise to make sure both job-seekers and businesses end up with results that are ideal for their needs.
This is primarily a benefit for businesses, but it does apply to individuals as well.
Businesses often invest a significant amount of money into finding the right people for the job. Rather than spending a ton of money performing various market studies and doing your own outreach, you can pay for more efficient work by headhunting experts who will deliver ideal candidates to you without you having to vet them all yourself.
For job-seekers, you aren’t paying the staffing agency for their services, but you do save money in the sense that it significantly cuts down on the amount of time it takes you to find ideal openings—and as the saying goes, time is money.
