Finding a valuable employee can be a time-consuming process. There is a job description to write, resumes to review, schedules to arrange, and interviews to conduct. This whole process takes time, and, as the saying goes, time is money. Your money. An easier option than taking this whole process upon yourself is to hand over the reigns to a recruitment firm for your staffing needs.
A recent article on Manila Recruitment lays out why using a recruitment firm saves you money verse doing the whole hiring process yourself. Their really cool infographic shows the 7 advantages to using a recruitment firm.
For the complete list, check out the article on their site. Of the many advantages, these are 3 to really keep in mind:
Recruiters Can Find The Otherwise Unknown Applicants
As the infographic says, "Perfect applicants may not be an active job seeker and are often hard to find." Recruiting firms, with their large candidate pools, are able to pull from their many resources and find the perfect candidate for your open position.
A Recruitment Firm Can Shorten The Process
That open head count is costing the company money in your time and the time other employees are spending making up for the production of someone who is no longer there. The longer the open head count exists, the more of a drain this is on your company and the more stressful it is for the employees who are helping out. Often, recruiters have specific people in mind as soon as you approach them with the type of job you need to fill. This cuts out a lot of the searching, so you can get right to the interviewing.
Recruiters Can Tell The Good Candidate From The Bad
Anyone can spot a bad resume (and if you need some brushing up on that, may I point you to this handy blog). Using a staffing agency can help weed out the candidates who may look great on paper, but not so great in person. Here at Hiregy, we bring in each candidate for a face-to-face interview. If the candidate is not up to our standards, we will not send that candidate on to our client for another interview.
Finding a great employee does not have to be a stressful, time consuming experience. Partnering with a recruitment firm will save you valuable time, and provide you with many viable candidates. If you are looking for staffing needs in the Central Florida area, give us a call and let us walk you through the process.
