When unemployment strikes, candidate pools widen. While it’s always great to have a broader range of candidates to choose from, it can also make hiring significantly harder. You have more resumes to sort through, the potential for far more interviews, and more challenging decisions to make.
Partnering with a staffing firm can simplify the hiring process — even in a time like this. Here are four ways a staffing firm can help.
Staffing Firms Are Hiring Experts
You tend to hire only when you have to, which may mean you hire a few times a year or even less. Becoming an expert in hiring new employees means you need plenty of practice. And you won’t get that from occasional hiring.
Staffing firms making hiring new candidates their business. They recruit and place thousands of candidates every year. So, they bring their expert guidance to every transaction, which means it will go more smoothly.
Staffing Firms Provide Guidance
You have a budget and basic job specs, but you might still be at a loss. What kind of candidate can you expect for your budget? How do you attract them? Where do you find them?
Staffing firms help you craft the perfect post and get it into the right hands, so you get a pool of candidates who meet your needs.
Staffing Firms Speed Up the Hiring Process
From writing the right job post to using a pool of pre-qualified candidates to expert interviewing, a staffing firm turns a months-long search into a weeks’ long event.
Because a staffing firm filters out the noise, you only need to worry about the candidates best suited for the role. As a result, you can make your decision faster and get them to work sooner.
Staffing Firm Reduce the Risk of Turnover
Are you looking for a temporary-to-permanent candidate? Staffing firms are primed to help.
When you go through a staffing firm, the candidate has a chance to learn the role and get to know the company before becoming a permanent member of the team. As a result, the transition goes more smoothly, and you’re less likely to see them bow out a few weeks or months into their permanent job.
