Why Businesses Need To Outsource Staffing to Agencies
Finding top-tier candidates for your businesses in an extremely expensive and time-consuming process. Based on a report from Glassdoor, a company in the United States spends about $4,000 to find a new hire, and it takes about 52 days to fill a role. That is a long time, especially when you need someone to fill a role urgently. This prompts smart business owners to look at other options that can help them fill their hiring needs.
If your company is investing resources in the recruiting, hiring, and training processes – but you’re still struggling with issues like attracting and retaining top talent – you may want to consider a remote staffing agency to assist.
TO START, LET’S DISCUSS HOW OUTSOURCING STAFFING IS DONE.
Outsourcing staffing needs means engaging a recruitment and staffing agency. Agencies like this have a robust network of talented professionals of your target niche or role. Once you decide to engage their services, you need to submit a clear outline of the job responsibilities of the role you are trying to fill. Once complete, the staffing agency will then send you a timeline and proposal. Typically, outsourcing staffing to an agency takes 1-4 weeks, depending on the role you are trying to fill.
Below are examples of services typically outsourced to a staffing agency:
- Sales Representatives
- Customer Service Professionals
- Social Media Specialists
- Web Developers
- Administrative Assistants
- Accounting Specialists
- Salesforce Consultants
- Lead Generation Specialists
- Quality Analysts
