Companies worldwide are facing new challenges due to the impact of Covid-19, and
hiring and staffing practices are facing some of the biggest changes. The businesses
that get to the other side of this economic breakdown will likely be stronger than
ever. One of the key decisions any business makes as we hopefully begin to see the
light of a revamped economy, relates to hiring and how to approach it in this era of
uncertainty. It’s actually the perfect time to consider a staffing agency like AllTech
for contingent workers to help create a more fluid workforce. Here’s a few reasons
- It’s a major time saver. Time spent reviewing resumes and applications,
interviewing, negotiating and onboarding is outsourced as part of this process,
allowing you to focus on other tasks. Essentially, HR for this employee is
outsourced. This also greatly increases the speed of the hiring process, allowing
your important projects to get off the ground sooner. Great talent is very heard to
find, and it makes sense to partner with experts that have existing relationships
and networks. Time to hire is an important factor when it comes to how much an
open position can cost a company. The longer a position is open, the higher the
cost due to a loss in productivity and diverting resources. Working with a staffing
firm can help decrease the time to hire and help decrease a loss in productivity.
- It creates flexibility for you. Use these niche consultants only when needed and
when they’ll be productive. Most often, we contract with business for a 6-12 month
period, covering specific project needs. Other times, we’ll engage in a contract to
hire scenario, enabling the client to “try before they buy” and after a 6 month
contract period, the client brings the contractor on board as a full time employee.
Another common practice is to use a staffing firm to uncover full time hires for your
business, and pay a fixed, negotiated percentage of their annual salary as a fee. We
can offer this type of flexibility to meet you needs, while most times, an internal
hiring process cannot.
- It reduces your business risk. The employee technically works for us, and any
insurance or benefit issues lie with the staffing firm. Human Resources isn’t a part
of the equation for your business as it relates to the contractor.
- It saves money. Companies are trying to be more productive and only have
workers when they are absolutely needed. They need to find ways to make sure
every dollar they spend is going to help the business. Temp staffing allows them to
only have people when they need them, and those people are being productive.
One of the most important factors is working with the right staffing firm for your
needs. Before you can start finding quality employees, you have to choose a
staffing firm that’s right for your business. As with all business relationships, a
staffing firm also needs to provide real value to you to be worth the investment.
Have a conversation with a staffing firm, and truly find out if they can bring value
to your organization. Find a firm that treats your organization as a business
partner, not just a client. Are they too large to offer the personal touch that you
need? Are they responsive? Are their candidates matches to the specific needs of
your requisition, or just general skill matches? Do they understand your projects?
