Why Employers Need Staffing Agencies

When it’s time to hire new staff, companies either have their own HR personnel do the job or contract it out to a staffing agency. If you’ve never used a staffing agency, like MiSource, before, you may be wondering about the benefits of working with a staffing agency to fill out your workforce.

The benefits of using staffing agencies often outweigh the negatives. Let's discuss how a staffing agency will benefit your business: 

1. Save Time

One of the undisputed benefits of working with a staffing agency is how much time it will save you. Even if you have a dedicated HR department in charge of such things, they still have other responsibilities, too. If you don’t have an HR team, it can be a major headache.

Even if you use job board sites, weeding through all the resumes you receive can be an interminable task. Then, there are the multiple waves of interviews, background checks to complete and references to call. And after all that, the candidate might not even take the job!

A good staffing agency, like MiSource, takes care of all that for you. Just tell us what you want in a new hire, and we will find the perfect person for your company.

2. Choose From Qualified Candidates

You can only tell so much from a resume, and going through job boards doesn’t always get you the cream of the crop. The right staffing agency will have a large network of highly qualified applicants to consider. Their job is to find the most qualified person who is also the best fit for the specific position you have available.

3. Find the Right Kind of Employee

There are three different types of employees you might be looking to hire:

  • Short-Term Contractors: When you need someone to fill in for a full-time employee or provide extra
                                                help for a specific project
  • Direct Hires: When you want to hire for long-term employment
  • Contract-to-Hire: When you want to hire someone for a contract position that could potentially
                                   transition to full-time

A staffing agency will have already classified the employees into these types and will provide you with the person who is looking for the type of job you have to offer. If you try hiring yourself, there’s a better chance there will be some confusion as to whether you and your new hire have the same long-term goals.

The Benefits of a Staffing Agency for IT

Professional staffing is even more important for IT. There are many different jobs in an IT environment, often highly specialized jobs, and it is crucial that the candidate you get to fill your position is one who you can be confident is the right fit.

Working with MiSource is the smart move whenever you need a new IT professional.
