The Top Three Reasons You Want to Outsource Your Hiring
The saying "Good help is hard to find" is not just a cliche; it is real. If you want to see the quality of people available to hire, you need just post a job. The problem with hiring someone is that it takes time, investigation and patience. Those may not be things that you have at hand. If you want to focus on what you do best (making your business run well), then you should hire an outsourcing company to do your hiring for you. There are many advantages to a recruitment agency. Hiring an employee who may not be good at what they do is not the only thing that can go wrong. The top three reasons why you should hire a recruitment agency are outlined below.
It saves you money
Many think that engaging an outsource company for hiring costs money. It may up front, but in the end it saves you money. When you use man hours to calculate cost of production, what you will find is that all the hours you spend interviewing, checking backgrounds, and finding the right candidate add up. When you hire a company, whether it takes them 2 hours or twenty hours to find the right candidate, you pay them a set fee.
They can handle background checks
Background checks can be costly. There are all types of things that you can look for in a background check. Not many of the hazards that an employee can present to your company can even be found in an official background check. Many recruitment agencies will do a more thorough background check, including following through with previous employers and accounting for lost time in resumes. It may not surprise you to know that a great majority of applicants will sway the truth in their resume. A recruitment agency will take the extra steps to qualify an applicant that you probably don't have time for.
You won't have to start all over
There are many times when you can spend months finding the right employee only to find within the first 30 days that they just aren't a right fit. By hiring a recruitment agency, you are most often guaranteed that if the employee they find doesn't match your expectations, they will start the search over again. The last thing you want to do is spend all your time finding someone only to have to start over and find someone else.
No one is looking for additional ways to spend their budget, but when you do the math, hiring an outsourcing recruitment agency will save you money.
