People talk all the time about how hard it is to find a good employer, but you don’t hear it discussed as often that it is difficult to find good employees, too. Employers have a great need to find candidates who fit the bill in terms of skills and work ethic, whether they need pharmaceutical IT staffing, healthcare informatics staffing or employees in other sectors.
Are you thinking about using a staffing agency to find talent for your next temporary assignment or temporary-to-permanent position? Here are three reasons why it pays to work with professional staffing companies.
- You Have Access to a Huge Pool of Talent
- Candidates are Pre-Screened By Temp Agency
- It is Easy to Request Staff
One of the biggest benefits of teaming up with a staffing agency is that you may be able to choose from dozens of candidates for your projects/assignments. Temp agencies usually work within many different sectors and fields, which means that no matter what business you are in, you will most likely be able to find someone who fits your qualifications.
Some examples of the many different sectors that temp agencies recruit for include: medical IT staffing, education staffing, clerical, manufacturing, engineering and legal fields, and more.
Another benefit of using staffing companies is the fact that your work is cut in half (or maybe even more than that) when it comes to screening potential employees.
When you hire an employee from scratch, you usually have to read applications and put those who don’t qualify at all in one “no” pile. Then, you have to do background screenings to make sure that no one is a felon or has a criminal record. Next, you have to actually interview each candidate to assess his or her character.
Temp agencies take care of making sure candidates are qualified and background screened for you. This cuts out two huge steps, so you can have a face-to-face or phone interview with just the cream of the crop. This cuts down on the time it takes to hire the best candidates.
If you know you have the need for extra employees coming up (or you are replacing someone who is leaving permanently), it is very easy to place a staffing request with most temp agencies.
All you have to do is fill out an online form detailing the specifics of the job and the relevant employee skills needed, as well as your contact information and the industries that apply to you.
Once you have sent all of this information via the Internet, a representative from the temp agency should get back to you within a day or two.
