Why Use a Staffing Agency?

Posted By: Moses Robles on May 10, 2019

In this age of competition, companies actively compete with one another to recruit the crème de la crème of the talent in the market. A successful business functions well only with the help of a team of excellent employees, so it’s important for companies to hire the best talent.

Unfortunately, many employers face challenges in finding a qualified candidate for the job. According to the most recent Talent Shortage study, out of 40,000 employers surveyed, 45 percent were reported to be facing difficulties filling job positions within their company.  That’s up from 30 percent just ten years ago and reflects growing talent shortages around the world.

Many companies are counteracting this problem with the help of staffing agencies. A recruiting agency has the right resources to help companies hire the best employers. Here are a few reasons why you should be using a staffing agency.

Capable Candidates Use Staffing Agencies

People who have had professional experience tend to use the help of staffing agencies for job openings. Many job listings in the market are usually for entry-level positions. A recruiting agency is more likely to know of senior positions since they’re in touch with various companies. Employers can benefit from hiring the services of staffing companies because they have access to a number of highly qualified applicants.

They Have More Resources

Staffing agencies usually have more resources to find talented individuals. A typical hiring process takes up immense energy and time. You have to communicate back and forth with the applicant throughout the recruiting process. This can keep the company from investing their energy in other valuable tasks. A staffing agency has more resources required to deal with the recruitment process.

They Know and Understand Your Requirements

A staffing agency that has experience in your field will know exactly what you’re looking for in a quality candidate. They’ll know the skills and experience each industry demands, so they’ll be able to find the best fit for your company. You probably won’t have as much time to assess a potential employee thoroughly but a staffing agency does.

They Have Perspective

An experienced third party can often take a look at your situation and envision solutions that you don’t see because you’re naturally pre-occupied with the day-to-day issues of your business.  Solving talent acquisition challenges with innovation, insight and creativity is what a staffing agency can bring to the table.

They Can Help with Onboarding

From advertising new job openings to conducting interviews and getting all the paperwork done, the costs of a new hire can amount up to$4,000. Add in the time that’s spent preparing and training new employees coupled with other tasks—this can end up costing you a lot more than that. Since staffing agencies specialize in hiring new employees, they can help you with onboarding and streamlining the whole process.
