Hiring a new employee can be time consuming and expensive, especially in the middle of the COVID-19 pandemic. As an employer, you want qualified candidates to help weather the storm with you during these uncertain times. If you are looking to save time and money, hiring a staffing agency might be your next business decision. In this post, we highlight some of the benefits a staffing agency can bring to your company.
We’ve made changes to our operations to support you in these changing times.
We care about you and your company’s success. At Focus, our team is made up of well-trained employees who are ready to help you with your staffing needs. We have some of the best qualified recruiters and employment specialists who have been with us for the past 26 years. By utilizing a staffing agency, the employees generally have a higher level of expertise related to job knowledge, trends within the industry and recruitment practices by continuously placing employees. Also with the screening process in place, the candidates that you will receive from a staffing agency are better than those outsourced from human resource departments.
With a staffing agency, they have a larger database of candidates where they have already been screened and qualified. For example, if you are looking to hire contract or temporary employees, you would need to advertise job openings, interview candidates and onboard them in a short amount of time. However, the advantage of a staffing agency is that they already have a qualified candidate and can fill the vacancy within a matter of days. At Focus, we have a large network to source from and look forward to helping you fill your business needs.
Employers looking to fill temporary positions can really take advantage of staffing agencies because they can observe the employee’s performance, qualifications and work tendencies before offering them a permanent job. At Focus, we monitor employee assignments and report to the employer of any issues. This way both the employee and employer are happy. By utilizing a staffing agency this helps reduce turnover as well as improving current employee morale.
Staffing agencies can save you money on job advertisements; pre-employment testing; onboarding process such as drug screening and background checks; and creating payroll databases. It is also important to note that maintaining part of your workforce as temporary employees through a staffing agency can help you save money on health insurance and other benefits as well as unemployment costs.
