Use a staffing agency: build loyalty from day one. Sounds simple, right? But how does working practically? You may already know that working with a staffing firm can save you time and money. However, there is another exciting and less discussed benefit that will increase retention. This keyword, loyalty, could be the secret sauce that causes your hires to stay with you long-term.
Here’s how working with a staffing agency builds instant loyalty.
Your hiring process starts the minute a potential employee reads your company’s job description. From that moment on, savvy employees will be assessing how your company operates and if they want to work for you. Think of the moment a potential hire sends in their resume. If you hire them, this is similar to the first time they set foot in your office. A hiring agency makes this initial process polished and seamless. If your application process is too arduous and confusing, that’s an immediate turn-off. SVS helps you avoid the classic pre-employment pitfalls to move the right candidates along to the next phase. Keep this article in mind that states that over half of candidates make a decision about whether or not they would accept a role within their first meeting with an employer. Don’t underestimate the power of a good impression from the start.
The Power of Rapport
Recruiters spend time with candidates on the phone. They build rapport. They make your company memorable. A candidate’s personal relationship with a recruiter could be what seals the deal between you and a new recruit. Great talent acquisition professionals help candidates feel like they are on the same team. When a candidate wants advice on which position, they will look to their recruiter as a source. Working with a staffing agency gives your employee a vote of confidence in your company’s favor from someone that candidates view as an advisor.
Matching the Skills and Needs
Another way using a staffing agency will build loyalty from day one is the matching process. Job seekers don’t want to waste time. You don’t want to waste time.
