Like many important business decisions, your staffing provider shouldn’t be a choice you make lightly. Developing a relationship with a strategic business partner who understands your industry can make the experience flow smoothly. The recruiter not only affects the success of your temporary or temp to hire workforce but also that of your management team and organization as a whole.
Here are some of the benefits of establishing a strategic partnership with a staffing firm.
- Getting to know you. At the beginning, your staffing partner should spend some time with your organization, management team, and current employees to learn as much as possible about the industry and company culture. This is essential for establishing the right staffing solutions for your company regardless of the need itself.
- Immediate need and long term solutions. Your staffing partner has experience in both temporary placements to cover immediate needs in the event someone is unable to work and long term or permanent placement. For unforeseen leaves of absences, your recruiter can work quickly to place a qualified employee onsite to help keep things moving. If there are long term needs, such as direct or temp to hire situations, your recruiter will be able to source and identify candidates for your company. They can remain part of the management process to ensure the success of each employee.
- Strategic planning. While you focus on the strategic growth of your business, your staffing provider can work with you to understand how hiring can fit into your plan. This allows you to focus on the aspects of your business for which you excel. Trust recruiters as professionals with extensive experience in staffing to concentrate on the human capital aspects of your organization.
- Special projects and new ideas. There may be projects you are interested in trying out but lack the data to support their long term viability. A recruiting partner can help you. It is easier to make a short term investment in temporary employees to test out the theories than make permanent hiring decisions. The short term workers understand the nature of the assignment and you will be able to gauge the effectiveness of the program before making a long term commitment.
