There is a range of long-term advantages to partnering with a recruitment agency. Among them are market knowledge, access to specialized skills, time savings, and financial savings.
Gaining insider knowledge of the labor market helps create competitive job offers that increase employee attraction and retention. Bringing aboard candidates with hard-to-find skills lets you take on more projects for additional revenue. Saving time and money lets you devote these resources to other areas of the business.
Discover four long-term advantages of partnering with a recruitment agency.
1. Market Knowledge
Working with a recruitment agency that specializes in your industry provides you with current information on the job market.
The agency recruiter stays updated on news and trends that impact the labor market and your industry. This helps the recruiter provide guidance on salaries, benefits, perks, and other hiring information.
Gaining access to relevant details about the labor market gives you accurate expectations for talent acquisition. Providing competitive job offers increases your hiring and retention rates.
2. Specialized Skills
Partnering with a recruitment agency provides access to candidates with hard-to-find skills.
Finding candidates with niche skills can be difficult. Fortunately, agency recruiters have relationships with passive candidates who possess specialized skills.
These recruiters know how to sell your company and the opportunity to these candidates. This lets your organization take on projects requiring hard-to-find skills to increase revenue.
3. Time Savings
Partnering with a recruitment agency saves time in the hiring process:
- An agency recruiter meets with you to discuss your goals, needs, culture, and other relevant details.
- The agency spends time advertising roles, reviewing resumes, interviewing candidates, and completing background checks.
- The recruiter sends you qualified candidates to interview.
- You extend a job offer to the best candidate.
- The recruiter negotiates the job offer on the candidate’s behalf.
- The recruiter helps onboard your new hire.
- You free up time for other duties and responsibilities.
4. Financial Savings
Working with a recruitment agency provides long-term financial savings.
Because temporary workers are employed by the recruitment agency, the agency is responsible for payroll, taxes, benefits, unemployment, and related issues. You can request a replacement at no charge if you are dissatisfied with an employee the agency provides.
You can scale your workforce according to your business needs. Hiring temporary workers means you pay only for the services used.
