Have staffing needs and don’t know where to start? With so many options in today’s market sifting through the options may seem daunting, yet making the right choice is imperative to filling your open positions with the right candidates. Here are four things to consider that will help you make the right choice.
When initially interacting with the staffing agency, make sure they engage with you, learning not only about the open positions you may have but also about your business, its history and culture. Understanding these things will allow the agency to place people in your open positions that are the right fit not only in terms of skill set but also in terms of fitting in with the culture and personality of your business.
Make sure the staffing agency offers you multiple qualified applicants. If they can’t provide you with multiple options, they probably aren’t seeking the right type of talent and won’t be able to accommodate additional needs.
Effective Timely Communication
Pay attention to how well the agency staff communicates. Do they address any issues promptly, responding to any emails or phone calls within 24 hours? If they don’t seem to be proactive in these areas, chances are they won’t provide you with the right candidates in a timely manner.
When initially meeting with the staffing company, did they set realistic expectations about the timeframe to fill the position and quality of candidates? If they didn’t go over this with you, this should be a red flag.
Finding the right staffing agency is essential in filling your open positions quickly with the correct candidate. An agency that focuses on these key items is an agency dedicated to quality service and is sure to exceed all of your staffing expectations.
