Your business is booming. So, you decide to add an employee… and another… and another. If hiring nonstop is stretching you thin, a staffing agency may be the answer to your recruiting woes.
How Staffing Agencies Can Assist with Nonstop Hiring
When you’re in a hiring frenzy, you need results FAST. After all, spending several weeks searching for the right candidate could leave you short-staffed. And being short-staffed means longer hours for your current employees, which often leads to burnout and additional turnover. A staffing agency makes hiring procedures more efficient, because expert recruiters do the bulk of the legwork for you. This includes writing job descriptions, advertising openings, reviewing resumes, and conducting introductory interviews. Consequently, you’ll start the recruiting process with only the most qualified applicants. This, in turn, allows you to find people more quickly and with less effort on your part. Therefore, instead of worrying about hiring, you can focus on running your business with the right number of staff.
Let’s face it. Hiring in a hurry can get your company into trouble. Especially when you’re in a pinch, it’s tempting to settle for a subpar applicant. However, bringing the wrong person into your organization could cost you hundreds of thousands of dollars. (SHRM, 2017) Take a moment to consider the potential impact of a bad hire. A subpar employee might lower morale, decrease productivity, and/or damage your organization’s reputation. Plus, if you need to fire someone, you end up starting the hiring process all over again. On the other hand, staffing agencies will be able to match you with high-quality candidates the first time around. Since recruiters have access to expansive networks and extensive databases, they’ll pull top applicants from large talent pools. Thus, you’ll have the opportunity to choose the best of the best rather than settling for good enough.
An Ongoing Partnership
In many cases, hiring comes and goes in waves. You may need fifty people one month and five the next. Unfortunately, ramping up and down can put a strain on your everyday operations. This especially holds true if you ask employees to step away from their duties to assist with the recruiting process. Alternatively, partnering with the right staffing agency allows you to minimize these disruptions. Recruiters will help you predict upcoming hiring fluctuates and prepare accordingly. As a result, you won’t feel like you’re scrambling every time you hit a busy spell.
