What is a Staffing Agency?
That's a question we get a lot from our clients in the early stages of our partnership.
To put it in simple terms, a staffing agency can help you identify, qualify, and contact talented individuals that you probably couldn't find independently.
According to the American Staffing Association, "Every day, staffing businesses send three million employees to work in America’s offices, factories, hospitals, warehouses, and other work sites—virtually every place that people work, staffing employees are on the job."
Hence, relying on a staffing agency can provide several benefits during the recruitment and selection process.
Hiring Time Reduction
Companies specializing in recruitment and selection have an active portfolio of candidates that is continuously updated with different business profiles. Therefore, they will be ready to fill a vacancy with a specific profile, reducing the process from several weeks to a few days.
Selection of the most talented candidates
Managing candidates is what a staffing company does every day. Staffing companies with extensive experience know the best techniques to carry out the process, which allows you to have the best talent that will help your business grow.
Cost savings by timely and efficient selection
Having an open vacancy represents a loss of productivity and income for companies, so it is essential to fill it shortly. This is achieved through an efficient selection process. Recruiting specialists with extensive experience and focused only on this process allows finding the required staff in less time, resulting in cost savings.
Staffing companies don't only place employees in temporary or contract positions. They provide temporary to permanent placement and direct hire placement, during which they act as a recruiter for the employer, finding the best candidate possible to fill the position.
