Do you find it difficult to find the right candidate? Does the hiring process take too much time away from the HR Department? Is it hard to keep up with the ever-changing compliance policies and laws? Whether you have worked with a recruiting firm in the past or have not even given it a thought yet, it’s always helpful to understand the process and purpose of working with a firm. Check out our list of the top benefits of working with a recruiting firm:
Hiring new employees, whether it is one executive hire or staffing for 50 entry-level roles, can be a difficult and time-consuming process. At times, your HR person or department just does not have the time needed to find qualified candidates to fill every role. When working with a recruiting firm they take over a large part of the hiring process. A recruiting firm would need the initial information to get the process started and input from HR periodically after that. The firm will handle all the in-between work until it is time to interview the candidate. Once the interview is complete, it is back to the recruiter to finish the process. In turn, this allows your company’s HR department to focus on completing daily tasks to help the day go by smoothly.
From advertising and market research and applicant tracking software and payroll, finding the right candidate can quickly add up. It doesn’t matter if an organization is looking to regularly hire multiple candidates or just needs to find that one perfect candidate once in a while, a recruiting firm can be a cost-effective part of the hiring strategy. Firms have access to all the essential resources needed in finding candidates that fit your company’s job requirements and company culture.
It’s Full-Cycle Recruitment Support
Working with a recruiting firm means you’ll get more than a resume in your email inbox. The work a firm does begins before you even see a candidate’s resume. From background checks and skills testing to pay negotiation and interview scheduling, a recruiting firm handles all the background work that goes into finding the right candidate. A firm can coordinate all first-day communications and maintains contact with candidates after placement to ensure there is a low risk of turnover .
