Why You Should Be Using A Recruitment Company

When choosing any product or service to augment your business, one of the main considerations has to be ‘how is this going to benefit my organization?’ If a company chooses a recruitment consultancy that is the correct fit for them, one that really understands their culture, their values, and their hiring goals, then the benefits both long and short term, can be enormous.

But what are the benefits?

  1. The Hiring Of Quality Employees

This is the number one purpose and advantage of a recruitment consultancy. They invest their time, energy and resources into sourcing, screening and presenting the cream of the crop in terms of available talent to the client. That allows you to get on with other things knowing that you will only be interviewing qualified candidates, based on your criteria!

  1. Lower Costs

Obviously one of the prime advantages of using a recruiting specialist is cost-effectiveness. The bottom line is that partnering with the right agency will save companies money in the long run. Companies can scale up and scale down their recruitment activity to match the fluctuating hiring needs of the client. In business, to use the old adage, time is money. Every day that a position remains unfilled costs a company. Filling vacancies fast is better for productivity and reduces the negative impact of a vacancy on other staff. The work still has to be done, after all. Recruitment companies are ultimately measured on time to hire, cost of hire and quality of hire.

  1. A Flexible Friend

As companies experience highs and lows in staffing requirements a good recruitment company is able to react accordingly. If you are expanding or opening a new department you will need to hire, but the scenario is totally different when you are not. A recruitment company can scale their recruitment team up and down as needed. At no cost to you! Ultimately, the client pays for what they get; successfully filled vacancies, nothing more, nothing less. Recruitment companies are flexible and can accommodate every situation, and the cost to you is based on successful hires.

  1. Reduced Time to Hire

A good recruitment company has the knowledge and resources to help you meet the challenge of tight hiring deadlines. Their access to qualified and vetted candidates is unmatched, which means you can be reviewing, interviewing and hiring much sooner. In fact, if you are really working together, your first round of interviews will be completed for you, before you even see a candidate. You only need to see qualified people that match your requirements!

  1. Access To Passive Candidates

Recruitment companies have access to and relationships with potential hires that are not necessarily aware of your need. Passive candidates make up a large sector of the job-seeker market, but they are not always looking all of the time. That is why they are passive. Within the recruitment companies database, there is a collection of strong, actively engaged candidates that can be contacted almost instantly.

  1. Reduced Time And Money Spent On Advertising

Advertising is expensive and it still may not hit your target audience. And if it does, you still have to sift through all of the resumes, qualified or otherwise, to find the rock stars that you want to see. When a company chooses to hire through a recruitment company they drastically cut back on those costs. The need to advertise in all the regular, costly outlets is eliminated. The recruitment company assumes the responsibility of finding the candidates. They go to them, instead of having them come to you. In fact, if you are working with a recruiting company and still consuming time and money on advertising, aren’t you missing the point?

Your recruitment specialist is set up to be an ‘instead of’ not an ‘as well as’. Let your HR department do what they are supposed to do. Look after your most valuable asset. Yourhuman resources. Give your friendly, professional, connected recruitment specialist a shout and work out where you can save money.
