5 Signs You Need Outside Staffing Help

August 3rd, 2017

You know you need to focus your time and talent on running your business. So if you find yourself spending a lot of time searching for and interviewing new employees, there may be a much more efficient way to handle that process. Have you considered working with a staffing agency? Consider these 5 signs and how they may point in the direction of working with a firm to help you with your hiring and onboarding processes.

1. High turnover rates.

Is your company struggling to keep good workers on the job? Do people sometimes leave within their first 90 days? Have you been tracking their reason for leaving and been noticing specific patterns? A staffing partner can help you determine the cause and effect, such as an onboarding experience that isn’t matching the expectations of the job. Or the hiring process not drilling deep enough into employee skill levels.

2. Slow hiring process.

You have a lot on your mind. And even with the importance of hiring, sometimes it gets put on the back burner. That leads to a very slow hiring time, which can impact your business even if you don’t realize it. The time it takes to hire someone for an important position is costing your company money. Other employees are taking up the slack. You can’t afford to wait too long to fill a necessary role.

3. Low-quality candidates.

You may have several tried and true resources for hiring employees, but what happens when the well starts to run dry? You don’t have the time to try to access every avenue to hire your next great employee, so you may start to notice that the quality of candidates you’re bringing in isn’t the caliber that you’re looking for. A staffing partner can solve this problem.

4. Inability to test skills.

And how do you prove that a candidate is who they say they are? Not necessarily on an identity fraud basis, but on the basis of what they say they can do. If you bring in someone who claims to be an Excel wizard only to learn they can barely skate by, how does that affect the job at hand and the entire office? A staffing partner can test for skills before presenting candidates.

5. Too many resumes.

Another problem you’ve probably faced is simply too many resumes to effectively narrow your choices down for any given job. When you post online for a position, you probably get hundreds of resumes. That is too many to review and most of them won’t meet the qualifications. But a recruiter is dedicated to this process which can free up your time so you can focus on what you do best.
