Many businesses consider the use of an employment or staffing agency to be an additional and unnecessary human resource expense. However, the economic benefits are often underestimated and include reduced financial risk, better quality hires, and flexible hiring practices that can accommodate peak seasons. The Recruitment Processing Outsourcing Association states that outsourcing recruitment to experts can reduce the speed and increase the quality of hires.
The American Staffing Association reports that staffing firms created over 15,000 new jobs in October, which continues an upward trend of 0.5% from September and almost 9% from October 2013. More organizations are using staffing firms and recognizing the benefits of doing so.
Companies often outsource their IT or accounting functions to specialist firms or consultants. Similarly, using a staffing agency with professionals devoted to efficient hiring, equipped with the latest tools and inside information concerning the labor market, can ensure that your hiring practices beat out your competitors and find the best talent.
