Why Do Companies Utilize Staffing Agencies?
Finding a new job through a staffing agency might seem counterintuitive as an entry-level worker. After all, why do companies hire through staffing agencies when they can hire employees themselves? The answer is that staffing agencies offer a range of benefits for both companies and potential employees. Keep reading to learn why finding work through a staffing agency is a good idea for you.
Staffing Agencies Fill Immediate Hiring Needs
One of the top reasons why companies use staffing agencies is because they have immediate hiring needs. Searching for qualified candidates from scratch can be time-consuming, and it can take a long time to delve into resumes to find people with the right skills for a particular job. With a staffing agency, a company looking to fill a specific role can eliminate this step. The staffing agency will be able to provide several candidates with the necessary skills or strengths quickly. The company won’t have to wait for job candidates to come to them but can instead start the recruitment process right away.
A Cost-Effective Solution
Hiring new employees directly can be surprisingly expensive. A company must delegate the task of creating job postings, looking through resumes, and conducting interviews to find employees. They may need to hire someone to take on this role, or they might have to pay employees overtime to complete these tasks in addition to their current workloads. A staffing agency, however, will do most of the work for a company, helping to reduce the amount of time required to fill roles and saving the company money.
Save Time With Staffing Agencies
Even after hiring the right person for a job, the onboarding process for new employees can be time-consuming for companies. Many staffing agencies, however, handle this process themselves, so the company doesn’t have to. Paired with a quicker hiring process and more focused training, companies with a staffing agency often find that the process saves them much time.
Increased Retention Rate
When a company can find a job candidate who matches the role’s needs, the retention rate for that role is often much higher. Employees can step into a position that interests them, gain new skills, and hone their talents, which leads to greater job enjoyment. Hiring employees costs time and money, so knowing that a new employee is likely to be satisfied in their role and that the company will be happy with the employee’s work will lead to better results for everyone. It’s a win-win for all parties involved.
