5 Solid Reasons to Choose a Staffing Agency

Whether your company needs to fill one position or staff an entire team, employing a staffing agency is the most efficient way to meet your hiring needs.

By – Caitlin Johnson

Sometimes, trying to directly hire an employee can take a lot of time, a lot of effort, and you can never have a guarantee that if they do not work out, you will have someone to easily fill that position. But when a company hires a staffing agency, they don’t have to worry about that anymore. They can sit back and let the recruiters find the person for their job, and not only that but if they don’t like the employee that they were given, they can get a replacement.

“You need to have a collaborative hiring process.”

  1. Your company is short on time

The hiring process is time-consuming, especially when starting one from scratch. Posting the job on all the networks, filtering through resumes, and multiple interviews for a dozen or so candidates can take weeks, even months to complete.

With a staffing agency, they already have a deep pool of talented candidates ready to hit the ground running. Many staffing agencies have candidates that are pre-qualified and verified. All the work your company has to do is choosing which candidate to hire.

  1. Your company is short on recruiting staff

It’s not uncommon for smaller or startup companies to not have an HR department or recruiting staff to work on and complete the hiring processes. Staffing agencies do, though, good staffing agencies have full teams of dedicated recruiters who are experienced in every aspect of the recruiting and hiring processes.

  1. Staffing Agencies have deep networks to find talent fast

Part of a successful staffing agency lies in the development of their networks of passive candidates. This is how staffing agencies have an advantage of speed to find the top people your company needs.

  1. They have more time to source passive candidates

Convincing a talented individual to consider a new opportunity takes more time than recruiting someone who is nervous to leave. Corporate recruiters will sometimes spend the bulk of their time sourcing the latter.

  1. A Staffing Agency understands real job needs and can hire employees who will hit the ground running

Recruiters, strong recruiters who are industry specialists have a full understanding of the real job needs as well as what the company needs. While corporate recruiters could certainly do this, they rarely get the chance. As a result, too many corporate recruiters over-rely on skills, experience and compensation to filter candidates, eliminating high potential and diverse candidates from consideration.

Using a respected and successful staffing agency, such as XTech Staffing, can definitely save your company and you time and money. You get to sit back and relax while the staffing agency searches for your perfect candidate. Many staffing agencies are incredibly flexible and willing to accommodate whatever your company needs and wants.
