The world of business is getting ever fiercer with competition growing. To survive and prosper, companies of all sizes need to focus on their core competencies; however, for most organizations, staffing is not one of them. And in this we find the problem; for while a business should focus on what they do best, the idea that a company is only as good as its employees is impossible to ignore. Knowing this, doesn’t it stand to reason to rely on a company whose strength is staffing, so you can focus more on what you do best?
While most would agree with the above statement, we still see misinformation, stigmas and myths surrounding staffing agencies that prevent organizations from relying on them to provide workforce solutions. Which is why we are taking the time today to dispel some of these myths and show you just exactly why you should turn to a staffing professional to help your business grow and prosper.
“I can hire staff myself…”
Perhaps this one isn’t so much a myth, because yes, you can do the hiring yourself; however, why would you? Have you ever wondered why some of the world’s largest companies, all equipped with hefty HR departments still work with staffing agencies? The simple fact is that it takes a lot of time, money and manpower to hire the right staff, and choosing a staffing agency can not only help save you on all three, it can also broaden your potential talent pool.
“They don’t know anything about my industry…”
This couldn’t be further from the truth because simply put, it is their job to know the ins and outs of your industry. In fact, you’ll likely be able to find a very industry0specific staffing agency whether you are looking for manufacturing, warehouse, clerical, office work or even dog grooming.
“They take a large commission…”
Of course, recruiters need to get paid, and if you are looking to work with the best, you can expect to pay accordingly. However, all it takes is a simple cost-benefit analysis and asking how important the best workers are for most companies to realize that in the long run, using a staffing agency can and will save you time and money.
“They only hire for temporary positions…”
Sure, while many agencies focus exclusively on temporary positions, there are many more who work tirelessly to provide direct hires and even temp-to-hire employees. A temp-to-hire worker is one who comes on in a temporary capacity, but has the possibility of turning into a permanent employee. This is a great option when trying to build a larger workforce.
