Increase Savings & Production
Nowadays, companies have a hectic schedule due to keeping up with the competitiveness of their industry. Resources and time become constricted and companies don’t have the time to implement a thorough recruitment and screening processes. There are hundreds of applicants, but companies need to find the right applicant for their job postings. Training applicants take time and money; companies are careful in the selection process in an effort to protect their investment.
Lowering costs and decreasing hire time
Utilizing a staffing firm enables a company to focus on their core functions while the staffing service manages the recruitment and selection process. Lowering costs and decreasing the time taken in filling the open position(s) are just two of the benefits derived through the use of a staffing service to manage the employment process.
Only invest time in interviewing candidates that are qualified and pre-screened
Every day there are numerous people looking for job openings with many people applying for the same position. However, companies do not have the time to processes each and every one of these candidates to see if they are fit for that one position. A Staffing firm cuts down the vast number of applicants to a more practical level for a company to consider for openings. Outsourcing to a firm allows the HR department or individual responsible for hiring to only invest time in interviewing candidates that are qualified and pre-screened.
Costs of searching for the ideal candidate for the job can add up quickly if it is done by the company alone. Utilizing the expertise of a staffing firm lowers these expenses of screening and recruiting personnel. They relieve the company’s HR department of the expenditures spent on retrieving background information, investigating previous employment records, administering skill tests, drug tests and even company-specific screening tests.
Attract the “currently employed and underemployed”
A staffing firm not only helps the hiring company, but also the candidates looking for employment. By applying with a staffing firm an applicant is eligible for many different job openings instead of filling out multiple applications at individual companies. This saves valuable time for the applicant and allows people who are currently employed to join the employment search without missing time on their current job.
Job seekers are sometimes hesitant about sending out resumes to companies in fear of losing their current position. The use of a staffing service as the “go-between” helps them feel comfortable in their employment search. A staffing firm can deliver the “currently employed” and “underemployed” to companies with much better results than what a company can attract on their own. These are the candidates a company wants to hire – they are responsible employees already in the workforce where they are proving their abilities daily.
Benefits beyond recruiting and hiring
Benefits derived from use of a staffing firm are numerous and extend well beyond the initial recruiting and hiring stage of the employment process. Reduction of liabilities associated with Workers Comp and Unemployment claim costs are just two of the many additional employment areas a staffing service can help manage.
