After months of being understaffed, you finally have the green light to hire a new employee. Now what? Consider these three reasons for using a staffing company to ensure an efficient hiring process.
Top EH&S talent are usually “passive” job seekers who are currently employed and are not actively pursuing other opportunities. They may or may not even be checking the job boards. As a result, these desirable candidates are not likely to apply to your open positions. However, they may welcome the chance of “upgrading” their current job once a great opportunity is brought to their attention.
Staffing companies are constantly networking with passive job seekers to monitor their availability. These highly desirable professionals need a good reason to make a change and often must be presented with opportunities that will transition them to “active” candidates who may be a good fit for your company.
The good news is companies are hiring! However, Human Resource departments are running lean like the rest of the company. They just don't have the bandwidth to focus on your position while sifting through hundreds if not thousands of job applicants for a variety of positions. A staffing company can shorten the recruiting timeline by quickly identifying qualified EH&S candidates, coordinating the interviewing process, and negotiating the hiring process. The result is a more efficient and more effective process that matches the right candidate with your needs.
Staffing companies can work on a contingency fee basis, meaning there is no cost to you unless a match is made. It also provides you with more and often better candidates to consider along with those that may be provided by your HR department. Then, it's up to you to decide which candidate best meets your needs.
