An uptick in business for a company means a few things: more work for full-time staff, more overtime hours to pay, and higher levels of stress for all employees. When a company experiences a busy period, it can be a good idea to partner with a recruiting firm. Why? A recruiting firm can help you hire temporary workers for flexible projects and part-time or full-time employees when new jobs become available.
Below, we will discuss the top 10 tips to successfully work with a recruiting firm that helps you find top talent in your industry.
1. Find a Diamond in the Rough
One of the biggest advantages of working with a staffing firm is that the recruiters there will be able to find your company a diamond in the rough while you focus on other responsibilities.
2. Hiring Managers Are Not Distracted
When your company partners with a staffing firm, your hiring managers are not distracted from their normal daily duties. They do not have to take time out of their day to sift through resumes and interview candidates who aren’t a match for the position.
3. Recruiting Firms Have Established Networks
With so many other responsibilities on their plates, human resources managers do not have time to keep their professional networks updated. Recruiting firms have networks established that they can pull from when jobs become available.
4. Recruiters Focus Attention on an Opening
When an opening occurs at your company, the recruiter will focus their attention on it, so the perfect candidate is found for the job.
5. Recruiters Find Pre-Qualified Candidates
Working with a staffing firm will save your company time and money because recruiters will find candidates who are pre-qualified for your opening and then send them your way.
6. Recruiters Provide Hard-to-Reach Candidates
A recruiting firm will provide a company with candidates who are hard-to-reach using various recruiting methods including networking, social media and use of an industry specific database, along with traditional methods such as posting job openings online, in forums or in newspapers.
7. Objective Look at Candidates
Recruiters will provide a company with an objective look at all of the candidates gathered for a job opening.
8. Recruiters Learn the Company
A recruiting firm will learn the ins and outs of the company it has partnered with so it knows what type of employees will excel there. They then try to match that information with top candidates.
9. Recruiters Represent Company Positively
A recruiting firm is an extension of the company, which means it will represent it positively in the job market so candidates know what type of organization they might be working for if offered a job.
10. Knowledge of Employment Laws
A popular benefit of working with a recruiting firm is the fact that certified recruiters know the updates to employment law in your area.When it comes time to fill an open job at your company, consider partnering with a recruiting firm to find the best talent out there today. Don’t leave things to chance.
