As an employer in the construction and distribution staffing industry, you understand and know what a hassle it can be to find great talent. At any given time, you could need 3-4 more laborers or drivers to complete a project on time. This is even more difficult if you are short-staffed and don’t have the time to dedicate to recruiting and interviewing for these needed positions. So what if you could pass off this responsibility to someone else?
The best option for you to choose is a professional recruiting and staffing agency. There are many benefits to using a staffing agency, we will share just a few and hopefully you will understand why staffing firms will take the hassle out of hiring for you and your company!
Do you have stacks of resumes on your desk? Is it taking too long to find the perfect placement for that open position?
Recruiting firms have the resources to help you find talent fast. On average, if you choose to recruit on your own, it can take up to 25 days to find a qualified candidate. Recruiting firms have ways of recruiting active and passive people into their labor pool. The number of employees that are reaching out to firms is continually growing. Recruiters at firms spend time with each candidate to understand what their employment goals are and to figure out what placement would be best.
Firms also recruit passive talent, which is talent currently employed and looking for other opportunities or want extra work. They have the time to do this, whereas you may not have the time and resources to wade through resumes and contact people on online job boards.
Try Before You Buy
We know your time is precious and that you don’t want to waste time hiring and training a new employee if they aren’t the right fit for the job. When a staffing firm sends a placement, they have pre-screened the candidate to make sure they meet your qualifications and needs. You are still able to train the employee based on your needs and then you can decide whether they are the right fit for the job or not. After this amount of time, you can offer the employee permanent employment or you can choose to keep them for an extended amount of time on a temporary basis.
Either way, it is up to you. If an employee does not work out, all you have to do is let the firm’s recruiter know and they will start the search to find you the next placement that will be right for the position.
More than 60% of staffing firm employees’ are offered permanent positions after being placed with a company. This number is continually growing, year after year.
