Key Benefits of Partnering with a Staffing Company
Network of Top Talent
By partnering with a staffing company, you’ll also be able to utilize their network and their resources. Often, staffing organizations have spent years and years, building their network of professionals and they have just the right fit for the position you’re looking to fill. Staffing companies will vet candidates and make sure that they are a good fit before they are even presented to you [iii]. One of the most common misconceptions about staffing organizations is that they only fill entry-level or low-skill-level positions. This couldn’t be further from the truth. Staffing organizations can fill a wide range of positions in nearly any industry. From CEOs to doctors, staffing companies have the resources and network of talent readily available to fill your position.
By partnering with a staffing company, you pass the heavy lifting of the hiring process to them. While vetting and hiring new team members is just a small part of your team’s day, staffing firms eat, sleep, and breathe the process of filling roles. We have the resources, connections, and network of highly skilled professionals, that a non-staffing firm may not have access to. Staffing companies have the most talented, reputable, and experienced professionals right at their finger teams.[iv] Additionally, the recruiters at staffing organizations are up to date on industry trends, top skills to look out for, and have the ability to eliminate the time it would take you to find the right talent.
Hiring for Culture Fit
“We know how time consuming it is locating and identifying the right Learning & Development talent for your company. By building positive relationships and understanding the preferences, culture, and goals associated with your openings; we eliminate the time and effort spent on this by expediting the process for you.”
-Stephen Miln, Direct Placement Business Executive, TTA
Ensuring that your team members blend seamlessly with your organization’s culture is just as important as them having the skills and experience the role requires. Once you’ve shared the role and culture, you’d like a candidate to fit, staffing companies can weed out those who miss either of these categories before they even connect them with you. This ensures that by the time a candidate comes face to face with your organization, you are getting a few candidates for the role.
