If you are a business owner, you are probably aware of the option of using staffing services but you may not be aware of all of the benefits. Why pass the job on to someone else that you can hypothetically do yourself?
It is often more efficient to outsource the things that you don’t have expertise in: marketing, building a website, supplying your materials, etc. A staffing agency takes the the time and costs associated with recruiting quality employees as well as other responsibilities like payroll, taxes, insurances and benefits. For many businesses, it makes sense to rely on the experts for these undertakings.
And, perhaps most important of all, using a staffing agency can be better for your company’s efficiency. Here are three ways how:
1. Time and Resources
Think of all of the time that it takes to find a good candidate: advertising and recruitment, analyzing resumes and interviewing. Then there is the actual hiring process and associated paperwork. This can be especially time-consuming if you have temporary assignments. A staffing agency does this work efficiently and takes the pressure off your management and HR staff so they can focus on managing your workforce.
Also consider that staffing agencies already have a number of candidates ready to go if you need labor on short notice. You can potentially have a pair of hands ready to go within 24 hours.
If you are hesitant about staffing fees, take a look at the following costs associated with your workers: taxes, payroll, workers comp and other benefits. If you take those out of your budget, paying someone else to cover those costs can immediately save you money, particularly if you are a small business and providing that kind of coverage for a few employees is expensive. Also consider the cost you are saving in the time it takes to find and hire people, as mentioned above.
Finding quality employees who will work in your company’s best interest can be a huge source of worry and take away your focus on your services. Staffing agencies are the specialists and can lift this burden from your shoulders. They recruit and interview candidates daily, so they know what to look for. You can also choose an agency that specializes in your field.
In summary, staffers know what they are doing. By saving you time, money and worry, they can ultimately help you run your business more efficiently, which means a better bottom line.
