Finding the right person for the job is a bit of an art form — but you already know that. It seems no matter how hard you try, several candidates you thought were the perfect choice ultimately don’t work out.
This, of course, is very frustrating; steering a hiring process is both time-consuming and expensive. Instead, save time and money by working with a staffing firm to help you hire right the first time. Here’s a look at what you have to gain by allowing a recruiter to handle your hiring.
4 Benefits of Taking on a Staffing Partner
Access Passive Candidates
Quite often, the right person for the job isn’t actively pursuing new opportunities. This means the job at your company might check all their boxes, but they probably won’t even know it’s available — unless you’re working with a recruiter. Staffing professionals have deep networks filled with passive talent willing to make a move for the right fit. A recruiter can serve as an intermediary to get the job at your company in front of these talented candidates.
Cut Recruiting Costs
As noted above, hiring is expensive — especially when you have to do it multiple times for the same position. When you have a recruiter on your team, they make it their mission to choose the right fit the first time. Since they hire for a living, they know exactly what to look for in the ideal candidate and where to find them. In fact, most staffing firms guarantee their hires; if things don’t work out, they’ll find a replacement free of charge.
Choose the Right Cultural Fit
It’s easy to get swept away by a candidate who seems perfect on paper, but hiring isn’t that simple. Recruiters know skills can be learned, but personality traits are innate. Therefore, they place a heavy emphasis on cultural fit. If a candidate doesn’t fit in with your team, they won’t last.
Lower Turnover Rates
Feeling like your staff is a revolving door of talent is frustrating. If this sounds familiar, morale probably isn’t the best with your existing employees and customers are likely feeling the chaos within your business as well. Working with a recruiter will make this a non-issue because when the right people are hired, they tend to stick around for years to come.
