How to Get the Most Out of Your Staffing Partnership
Finding excellent candidates for temporary and permanent positions can be challenging. To ensure that they are finding the best employees most efficiently, many companies partner with staffing agencies. Working with a staffing agency requires commitment from both the company and the staffing partner. Developing a dependable partnership from the start will help you enjoy a positive, long-lasting relationship that provides your company with benefits for years to come. Whether you are already partnered with a staffing agency or are considering doing so, remember these tips for building a strong staffing partnership.
Your company may miss out on valuable growth opportunities if you fail to set goals and objectives with your staffing agency. If you wish to grow your workforce by 50 percent or intend to develop a temporary seasonal workforce, it is essential to convey those goals to your staffing partner. They can then adjust their recruitment and hiring strategy for your company accordingly.
Staffing partnerships can easily dissolve if communication between both partners fails. When working with recruiters, it is essential to maintain regular contact to ensure that your workforce needs are met. You can streamline your communication process by choosing a regular weekly or monthly time to reach out and schedule phone calls or virtual meetings with everyone involved in hiring. The important thing is to keep everyone in the staffing agency and in your company up-to-date on hiring goals and practices.
A benefit of establishing a staffing partnership is getting the chance to acquire new insights and perspectives that help your company. Staffing agencies have dealt with thousands of candidates, so they know who fits best in which positions. Keeping an open mind allows you to trust the staffing company to find the best talent solutions for your team based on what you’ve told them about your goals and their own recruitment experiences. Trusting your staffing partner to guide you can help your business immensely.
As your hiring needs evolve, as they certainly will, you must maintain regular contact with your staffing partner. Keeping your staffing agency involved as changes occur, and seeking feedback, will allow you to adapt to hiring changes most effectively. This will also help your team allocate resources properly, so your HR employees and staffing partner are working together to meet common goals.
Establishing a staffing partnership can be hugely beneficial for any company, but that relationship requires regular communication and trust to work effectively.
