Employers Have Choices Too! Part Three of Three Part Series

by Apr 22, 2022

As we mentioned in the previous two parts of this series, employers certainly have choices when it comes to utilizing the services of a qualified staffing firm to accommodate their specific employment needs.

Whether you require a temporary contract employee or the next superstar Direct Hire to lead a particular project or division, staffing agencies can help with all of your needs. Seasoned professionals can also provide you with some great insight into the dynamics of today’s market and what is going on with the current candidate pool.

In order to get the most out of your experience, here are a few tips and in order to have all your staffing needs successfully met.

Your Needs And Preparations

  • Prior to reaching out to an agency, determine what your long and short term goals are in terms of staffing needs. Are you looking for someone for a limited period of time, or for a specific project? Or, do you want to make a long-term investment in the right Direct Hire candidate?
  • Do you need to fill a permanent position but first want to see how a particular individual will perform the tasks and duties, or how they will fit in with the rest of the team?
  • Have you found someone that you want to bring onto your organization but cannot do so because there is a hiring freeze or not enough funds in this year’s annual budget to outright hire a full-time employee with full benefits?
  • Are you in need of a new employee to either replace an existing staff member or fill a void that was left by another worker who had left?
  • Once you have defined your needs do look for a reputable staffing firm which is able to accommodate those requirements. Whether it is a remote worker – which staffing firms need a specific type of insurance for – or an extra layer of expertise in order to identify and recruit the best Direct Hire candidate, staffing agencies can be an extremely beneficial resource for any public or private organization.

Job Description and Organizational Culture

  • In order to get the right person for a specific post, clients should provide staffing firms with a well-thought out quality job description detailing the tasks and responsibilities a candidate will be expected to perform in the position.
  • Providing a glimpse into an organization’s specific culture is another means of having the best person who will fit in with the rest of the team. For example, if an entity is searching for a very dynamic individual who will be interacting with many others throughout the course of the day, you may want to let the staffing firm know about this type of setting. That way, an agency will be able to identify those candidates who thrive and are very comfortable in that situation. By the same token, if the job requires a person to work independently and with little interaction with others, by knowing this circumstance, a staffing firm can recruit those types of individuals who work well independently and do not require a lot of contact with others.
  • If you are looking for a temporary contract worker who you may want to transition into a permanent placement, letting the staffing firm know this beforehand is essential. That way, Recruiters can identify and individuals who will not only be available for the duration of a specific contract, but also those candidates who may be open to the possibility of potentially moving into to a permanent post.

Bottom Line

Forging a true partnership with a qualified, credentialed firm such as Contemporaries, Inc. can be one of the most effective and cost efficient methods for organizations to meet all their staffing needs.
