Every company wants the cream of the crop, but there are only so many elite professionals to go around. If you’re tired of seeing these workers pass your company up to work for your competitors, consider taking on a staffing partner.
Serving as your secret weapon, a recruiter can work behind the scenes to make your organization a hub for top talent. Find out what you have to gain by teaming up with a hiring expert.
4 Benefits of Working With a Staffing Partner
Gain Access to Top Talent
Since they’re always in high demand, the best workers can be difficult to track down. If you post an open position on a job board, they might not even see it, because most are gainfully employed. Having a shared connection is the best way to get on their radar, and a recruiter can provide this service. Staffing professionals work hard to maintain talent pools filled with passive candidates only interested in changing jobs for an exceptional opportunity. Without a shared connection, they’ll never even know the job at your company existed.
Speed Up the Hiring Process
The average time-to-hire is 22.9 days, according to a 2015 survey conducted by Glassdoor Economic Research, but yours likely drags on much longer if you’re trying to balance the hiring process with your full-time job. Top candidates actively seeking a career move apply to several jobs, so even if the opportunity at your company is the most intriguing, they’ll likely go with the first employer to present an enticing offer.
When you partner with a recruiter, you can be the first in line, because they’ll handle the entire hiring process. All you have to do is meet with top candidates and make your pick, allowing everyone to enjoy a quick and easy experience.
Remain a Competitive Employer
Top talent has their choice of companies to work for, so you have to offer something your competitors don’t. Since recruiters have their fingers on the pulse of the industry, they know exactly what the best professionals want from an employer. They can evaluate your compensation packages and company perks to make sure offerings are on par with your competitors.
Plan Ahead for Success
Instead of simply focusing on the now, recruiters help create a hiring strategy for the future. If you loop them in on growth initiatives planned for the future, they can start searching for top talent. This allows you to secure better hires, because there’s more time to find the right fit.
