As a hiring manager, you have a lot of responsibilities to fulfill. One of them may be adding members to your team. However, you might not have enough time to devote to the process. As a result, it may be in your best interest to work with a staffing firm.
Four Reasons Why Your Kansas City Business May Benefit from Partnering with a Staffing Firm
1. You Lack Time to Hire
You may not have the significant time commitment needed to properly hire. This means you will not devote enough time to review resumes, conduct interviews, and provide a job offer. Odds are you will make a bad hire, lose time and money, and have to start the process over again.
A staffing firm has experienced candidates ready to work when you need them. The firm already took care of conducting interviews, providing skills tests, and performing background checks. All you need to do is meet with the candidates, decide which one to hire and negotiate a job offer through the firm.
2. You Do Not Need Full-Time Employees
There will be times when you need temporary team members to handle the workload. This is especially true during busy seasons, employee vacations, extended leave, unplanned absences, or when an employee unexpectedly leaves the company. It is unwise to hire permanent staff for a short time, let them go when the workload evens out, and pay them unemployment.
A better solution is to bring aboard temporary workers from a staffing firm. The firm can provide workers with the skills, experience, and personality to fit the job requirements and company culture. You gain qualified team members for as long as you need and pay only for services used.
3. Your Open Role Is Hard to Fill
You may be having trouble finding candidates with specific skills. In this case, posting on job boards is ineffective. No matter how many resumes you go through, you will not find the experienced candidates you are looking for to fill a niche position.
A staffing firm that specializes in your industry has the qualified candidates needed to fill any role. This includes candidates with the specialized skills required to work in a niche role. Contact the firm, talk about your needs, and get ready to meet the candidates sent over.
4. Your Hiring Process Takes Too Long
The best talent typically is off the market in 10 days. If you spend longer than this when hiring, odds are your top candidates will accept offers from your competitors.
A staffing firm has an extensive network of professionals ready to meet with you. By talking with the firm about your needs, they quickly can send over candidates who will meet your expectations.
