As the staffing industry booms, many companies have turned to their resources in order to fill positions. Traditionally this class of workers was utilized to meet the growth and decline of labor demands without the necessity of hiring permanent employees. This is no longer the case. Many companies have begun to consider staffing agencies as a solution to long-term talent acquisition problems. By reviewing the impact that considering temporary placements can have on overall company operations, benefiting from this burgeoning industry will be achievable.
Staffing agencies specialize in allocating talent that might be beyond the reach of your human resources department. In addition to talent acquisition, human resources personnel at a typical business or corporation have a wide array of other responsibilities concerning currently existing employees. According to Chron, “Staffing agencies often have a level of expertise that far exceeds some employers’ human resources departments. Hiring recruiters, employment specialists and an employment or recruiting manager to supervise staff could require a lengthy recruiting period to find qualified employees. Staffing agencies provide services that rival the best qualified recruiters and employment specialists, usually at a lower cost. Employees of staffing agencies generally have a higher level of expertise related to job knowledge, employment trends and recruitment practices by virtue of continuous placement of employees. They also have industry expertise if they work for staffing agencies that specialize in certain fields, such health care providers.” Staffing agencies specialize specifically in the hiring and recruitment tasks related to talent acquisition, which can drastically lower the burden for your HR employees.
No Permanent Commitment from the Parent Organization
When hiring a permanent employee there are a slew of regulatory, legal and acquisition costs worth noting. There is also a gamble on the part of the employer if the candidate does not fit well into the position or they decide to pursue a career with a different company. A temporary placement allows the parent organization to test out a potential candidate and evaluate their performance and loyalty before deciding to make a permanent hiring decision. Many employees that work through a temporary agency will eventually state that they would like to pursue a position through the organization, which after a prolonged period of working proficiently adequately proves their respective loyalty.
Healthier Work Environment
When employees are overloaded with busy work it can be detrimental to the progression of projects and overall employee morale. Temporary placements can tackle this burden of overwork, creating a more productive and enjoyable work environment.
A large amount of candidates who choose to seek a temporary position may have been laid off or simply decided to leave another permanent job in a similar industry. Bringing in a person with a different flavor of experience or way of doing things can shake up the monotony that often develops within established organizations. Such a shake-up can create unexpected positive results that previously would have been unachievable with the established talent base.
Disposal of Legal and Regulatory Responsibilities
Staffing agencies take on the responsibility of legal and regulatory responsibilities for the temporary workers they provide for a company. For a small business with a limited number of employees this allows for a focus on the important tasks of maintaining and expanding business without having to worry about the various regulatory and legal aspects of employment.
