You can save time and resources while finding the best possible candidates. How? When you work with a recruiter and staffing agency. Recruitment Process Outsourcing (RPO) is a means to outsource all or some of the steps involved in finding, interviewing, screening and hiring new employees—and it can save you and your Human Resources department a lot of valuable time. That’s because staffing agencies are experts at placing their clients with the right employment matches. And better placement will save you in the long-term through employee retention. Though no one can predict the future with 100 percent accuracy, staffing agencies help greatly reduce the expense related to replacing candidates by helping you make the right choice the first time.
Advantages of working with a staffing agency
Your recruiter is a trusted partner in your staffing journey. They help you (and your company) in the following ways:
- Reach more candidates. This helps improve your employment matches. Recruiters have proven techniques for getting in touch with both active and passive candidates. Plus, they work hard on relationship building, which can help make the decision to accept a job offer much easier for passive candidates.
- Take the burden off your staff. The hiring process is a lot of work, and a recruiter will free you up to run your company. Your Human Resources department can breathe a little easier and handle daily tasks like open enrollment, benefits education and much more. A staffing agency will hire as much or as little of the process as you prefer.
- Save on staffing costs. Yes, there is a cost associated with using a staffing agency. But it’s minimal in comparison to what you’ll save with better-matched candidates in terms of productivity, cultural fit with your team and avoidance of turnover.
- Keep your company safe. Background screening, such as credit, substance and criminal background checks, are all handled by your staffing partner. In this way, you’ll be able to keep your company, reputation and employees safe with qualified new hires.
