With the news that 4.5 million workers quit their jobs in November, it reminded me that businesses should look at using staffing agencies to help fill the positions that they have open. Some are calling this event the Great Resignation. It does not appear that the workers are just quitting and walking away but they are taking a step back and making choices to change careers to better their work-life balance. With this influx of new workers, it might be the right time for you to look into getting help finding the right talent for your business. Using a staffing agency may help you save valuable time and money.
Hiring new employees can be a very daunting task. Sometimes it can be a real struggle finding the right talent. Even if you find the right talent the new hire may not fully satisfy your company’s needs. This can result in wasted time and money. As a result, a lot of companies choose to work with staffing agencies to help them find the right talent. When done in-house the vetting process for a new hire can be very time consuming and expensive. Staffing agencies can help with this because they do all of the vetting and may absorb other costs such as skill assessments, background checks, drug screenings, driving records and training. Because of this, using a staffing agency ensures that you get qualified candidates that can come aboard and start being productive right away. Below are some other reasons to consider working with a staffing agency.
- Faster Hiring Process
- Better Candidates
- Save Money
- Superior Market Knowledge
- Lower New Employee Overhead
- Performance Guarantees
- More Effective Job Descriptions
- More Access to Experienced Candidates
