It’s a job seekers’ market right now with more jobs than candidates, which means competition for quality workers is higher than ever. Companies across America have empty roles to fill and those that succeed do so by adapting their strategies to current trends.
Staffing companies have the connections and industry knowledge to give you a competitive edge. Here’s how:
1. They Know the Current Hiring Trends
Competing for the best candidates can frustrate if you don’t know what candidates are looking for. Since a staffing agency works with clients and candidates alike, they can tell you what incentives seem to attract candidates the most.
They can also keep you up-to-date with current hiring trends like competitive pay rates, realistic job requirements, and streamlined hiring processes. Falling behind in these areas pushes candidates toward employers who have a better understanding of today’s market.
2. They Can Help With Workforce Management
The recruiting process can be a tedious affair, especially if a company doesn’t have the resources for an effective recruitment process.
Without a dedicated hiring manager, communication with potential employees can be too slow. A convoluted hiring process without clear protocols can also slow things down. A skilled worker who’s in demand will not wait around to hear from you.
A staffing company can handle the hiring process for you and help you get top talent in the door, so you can focus on running your company.
They’ll thoroughly screen applicants with preliminary interviews and skill assessments, run background checks, and thoroughly vet a candidate’s experience. They can even help with payroll.
3. They Have A Wide Network
Staffing companies live and die through their long-term relationships with clients and candidates alike. So a well-established agency will have a vast network of connections in their market. Partnering with them gives you more ears on the street to help you recognize emerging trends and adapt your practices as needed.
A good agency also keeps in touch with their candidates, even after they’ve placed them, so they know when a quality worker might be looking for greener pastures or a better commute.
