One of the biggest challenges a company faces is finding the right talent to fill a position. With the advances in technology companies receive many more applicants for a position. Now, imagine reviewing all these applications and interviewing possible candidates, it sounds very time consuming right? And we all know that, in business, time is money. Not to mention that this time will probably be taken away from already existing obligations.
Another dilemma a company can face, is that they don’t have the expertise to sort through the candidates. This means that the employee hired may not be a good fit for the company, which can lead to a high rate of employee turnover, and that can be very expensive for any business.
So how exactly can a Staffing Agency help?
Well, first it is important to know that there are 3 major types of jobs that a Staffing Agency can help you with:
As mentioned before, hiring a staff can be very time consuming as companies have to review resumes, contact candidates, hold interviews, etc. But it can be very expensive too, and we are not talking about the ‘time is money’ issue. The legal issues when employing people comes with a financial risk as they need to provide insurance, pay taxes and comply with labor laws.
By hiring a Temporary talent through a staffing agency, the company can have a qualified worker worry-free, as the Staffing Agency will not only go through the recruiting process, but they will also be the worker’s employer, taking care of all the paperwork and legal issues.
Sometimes a company is still unsure if a temp worker or a long-term hire is the best fit for the position. In this case, Staffing Agencies can help make this distinction with a temp-to-hire. This gives the company more time to see if the employee is a good fit for the company, and, if the position is better filled by a temp worker of a full-time staff.
When a company posts a new job position, they will get a high volume of response of candidates, and most of these candidates won’t be the perfect fit for the companies’ culture and needs. This means a high turnover of employees, which costs the company a lot of money with recruitment and training.
