If you are a company that employs a large number of people or a smaller business that needs workers who specialize in what it is you do, it might make some serious sense to bring on a recruiting company to help fill your staff with the most qualified and dependable personnel available.
Recruiting services know who to look for and where to find quality employees whether you are in need of food processing equipment operators, software developers, operations leadership or any other type of specialized workers. Companies all over the world know and have learned from experience how much money can be saved simply by hiring the right employee.
At the same time, hunting for the employee that will fit into your company’s culture is a task that will take time that your company often doesn’t have enough of. Leaving the searching and vetting of potential employees to a top notch recruiting company will not only save you the time, you will also likely find that the new prospect is going to bring qualities you hadn’t even thought about. That’s what makes the recruiting business so very valuable.
One example of finding quality prospects is the recruiting of military veterans. Recruiters have found what many of us already know but have not taken the time to fully realize–military veterans bring skills and qualities to the table that many non-veterans don’t have. Employers have begun to understand that military veterans bring to civilian jobs what they trained to acquire while in military service, namely, self-discipline, attention to detail, the ability to work on a team and lead that team if necessary, and respect and leadership.
With the growing economy not only in the United States but in all of North America, there has been a recent surge in searches, according to the AESC. With more people looking for jobs, a recruiting company can be extremely thorough, giving you the most qualified and best matching options.
A recruiting company is also going to be staffed with people who do nothing but search out and find the best matches for what your company is looking for. They will also do this more quickly than your company will be able to do on its own. In 2013, for example, the average time it took to find a temp worker was six days. For a contract worker, that time to fill was only eight days. For permanent employees, the average time it took to find a suitable match was only 32 days. In just over a month, on average, recruiting staffs were able to take a company’s desires and specifications and find them an employee that would fit into their company’s culture, become productive and have the desire to stay for a good length of time.
Nothing matters more to a business than its employees. If you find yourself in need of one, two, or more, using a recruiting company will take the stress away and deliver just what you’ve been missing.
