How do staffing firms increase hiring speed?
In today's competitive job market, it can be a challenge for companies to find and hire the best candidates for their open positions. Staffing firms have emerged as a solution to this problem, providing a range of services that help companies increase their hiring speeds while maintaining the quality of their hires. Here's how a staffing company can help:
Access to a larger pool of candidates
Staffing firms have access to a larger pool of candidates than individual companies do. This is because staffing firms have a network of job seekers who are actively looking for work, as well as passive candidates who may be open to new opportunities. When you work with PeopleShare, for example, we sort through our wide pipeline of candidates and find those that best match what you're looking for.
Specialized recruiting expertise
Staffing firms specialize in recruiting for specific industries or job functions. This means they have a deep understanding of the skills and experience needed for each role and can quickly identify candidates who meet those requirements. By leveraging the specialized expertise of staffing firms, companies can streamline their hiring processes and reduce the time it takes to fill their open positions. We at PeopleShare are masters at creating effective job descriptions and utilize social media to run targeted ads to get in front of candidates.
Staffing firms pre-screen candidates before presenting them to clients. This means that hiring managers save time and resources by only reviewing candidates who meet their specific requirements. At PeopleShare, we go a step further by providing each client with a PeopleViewTM - a pre-recorded interview of the candidate so they can check them out prior to calling them in for an interview. By having a pre-screened pool of candidates to choose from, companies can accelerate their hiring processes and reduce the time it takes to make a hire.
Flexible staffing options
Staffing firms offer a range of hiring options, from temporary staffing to direct-hire placements. This flexibility allows companies to tailor their staffing solutions to their specific needs and hiring timelines. For example, companies can bring in temporary staff to cover gaps in their workforce while they search for permanent hires. This can help them maintain productivity while they continue their search for the right candidate.
Staffing firms provide onboarding support to help new hires quickly acclimate to their new roles. This can include providing orientation and training, as well as ongoing support to ensure a smooth transition. By providing this support, staffing firms can help companies reduce the time it takes for new hires to become productive members of their team.
Working with a staffing firm can be a valuable resource for companies looking to increase their hiring speeds. By leveraging their access to a larger pool of candidates, specialized recruiting expertise, pre-screened candidates, flexible staffing options, and onboarding support, companies can accelerate their hiring processes and maintain the quality of their hires.
