Are you thinking about partnering with a staffing agency for your business?
There are many advantages to teaming up with a staffing firm, but you must know a few things about them first:
- Do they specialize in your industry?
- How do they find workers?
- How do they ensure the right match?
Your business depends on sound hiring methods for its continuing success, so your staffing agency must deliver results with measurable returns. As you consider your choices for a staffing partner, here are some tips for ensuring you choose the right one:
Can they find talent in your industry?
You wouldn’t contact a cardiologist if you needed glasses, so why would partner with a staffing firm that specializes in electrical talent if you need an accountant. Specialization can be the difference between finding a perfect match and merely settling for something close. Every industry has its particular recruiting challenges, so it makes sense to choose an agency with years of experience in your field.
How do they find their candidates?
You should have a staffing partner that takes the time to learn your culture and find out the reason you’re looking to hire:
- Did one of your top talents leave the company?
- Are you replacing an underachieving worker?
- Did you create a new position?
The best match for your organization will come from a list of candidates who fit into your company’s culture. And job seekers might be actively pursuing a job or passively browsing openings. Either way, many people are checking out job sites, so an experienced staffing recruiter will sort through them and find the most serious candidates.
How do they ensure the right match the first time?
You probably already know how costly it is to hire the wrong person. (That’s likely one of the main reasons you’re considering working with a staffing agency!) That being the case, you want to make sure that you’re partnering with a firm that can achieve better results than you could without their help. As you go through the decision-making process, try to find out as much as you can about how the agency assesses potential candidates based on your specific needs.
How long have they been in business?
When it comes to staffing, experience counts. Staffing agencies that have helped their clients through the stock market crash of 1987, the Dotcom bubble, and the global financial crisis of 2007, have withstood the test of time and will continue to do so well into the future.
