relaxTalent acquisition directly affects the infrastructure of an organization, so it’s not surprising that many companies prefer to do their hiring in-house and balk at outsourcing.  And while there is truth that you, the business owner or hiring personnel, know best what your company needs, the fact remains that outsourcing your talent acquisition is the best way to get exactly what you are looking for.

Here are four reasons why you should consider partnering with a recruitment firm:

1)  Quality meets efficiency. You know what you need, and you know when you need it. But do you have the time to sit and go through endless resumes, most of which will likely not meet your requirements? Recruitment agencies are trained to help you identify qualified candidates based on your specifications. A staffing partner can guarantee that the resumes you do see are resumes of individuals with the skills you are looking for. They can help you design your dream team!

2)  Cost-effectiveness. Keeping costs low is important to all businesses – whether big or small, and onboarding new hires is not cheap. Consider what you will spend on advertising, background checks, drug tests, and other prescreening procedures. A staffing firm typically offers these services as part of their hiring package.

3)  Flexibility. Things happen. People get sick. Employees go on vacation. Special projects arise. A recruitment firm understands this and is equipped to help you find qualified staff to cover those unexpected or temporary needs. Also, it’s important to keep in mind that if your company grows, and you find yourself needing to hire more employees, a staffing provider has the time and flexibility to help you fill those open positions much more efficiently than you would on your own.

4)  Placement satisfaction. Even if you feel that someone is right for the job, there is no guarantee that the person is actually going to be right for the job until they start working.In addition to screening and finding the best applicants, a staffing firm offers different hiring options, such as temporary-to-hire, which allows you to gauge a prospective, long-term employee’s abilities and potential value to your organization – before putting them on your payroll. This will help you ascertain if you made the right choice – and will also help reduce (hopefully eliminate) high turnover rates!

Recruitment firms have the tools and resources to help you find top talent. Attracting, screening, interviewing, and hiring are their specialties, so if you haven’t partnered with a staffing provider yet, reach out to one. They will be able to provide you with some valuable insight on the benefits of a partnership.
