Why You Should Use A Staffing Agency

Because of all the time needed to find the perfect employee for the job (temporary, contract, or permanent), many employers outsource their hiring needs to staffing firms.

Here are the top four reasons employers need a staffing agency:

Staffing Agencies Have the Resources

Employers typically don’t have the time it takes to focus on hiring, specifically when it comes to passive recruiting (recruiting those who are already working). Convincing a person who’s not looking for a new opportunity can take quite a bit of time and follow-up.

Even with candidates who are actively looking, hiring tasks can require more time than you have to give. The following tasks just scratch the surface of the recruiting process:

  • Searching for that hard-to-find candidate
  • Reviewing resumes and applications
  • Conducting phone and virtual screenings
  • Interviewing candidates face-to-face
  • Checking backgrounds and references

When you partner with MiSource, all that’s left for you to do is meet with a selected candidates and decide which feels like the best fit for your company. Your productivity will increase as the screening process reduces.

Staffing Agencies Have the Network

Over time, staffing agencies are able to develop deep networks with both candidates and hiring managers. Because of these connections, staffing firms have the ability to be nimble. They can help keep businesses fully staffed during busy times or when special projects are in the works and additional expertise may be needed.

Staffing Agencies Understand Your Needs

Third-party recruiters are industry specialists and understand both your needs and the needs of the potential candidates you hire. When a staffing firm looks for a candidate, they’re considering skills as well as experience, potential, and your company culture. Recruiters spend time with each potential candidate to understand what their workplace goals are and conduct assessments on what the perfect placement would be. If for some reason the hire doesn’t fit, firms guarantee a replacement, ensuring your company will find the right candidate.

Staffing Agencies Can Save You Money

Not only does a staffing agency save you time, it can save you money. Many “new hire” costs are absorbed by the firm, as are benefits and sometimes training for temporary employees. Using a staffing firm also alleviates the burden of unemployment claims, so if you do choose to change the employee or terminate the contract, the burden falls on the agency.
