The hiring process can take time, especially when companies decide to do it alone. If you’re not working with a recruiting firm, you run the risk of losing some of the best available candidates to companies that have streamlined their processes and that rely on recruiters for help.
The right recruiting firm can cut a company’s time to hire by 90 percent. Here’s how.
Your recruiting firm handles many hiring tasks for you.
Reviewing resumes and contacting references takes a great deal of time. Companies that work with recruiters, however, don’t spend this time themselves. They allow their recruiter to handle these tasks, so they can focus on higher-value work that demands their particular skills.
Your recruiter can help you create an employment brand.
Employment branding shares your company’s unique culture, vision, and goals with potential job candidates. It helps job-seekers decide whether your company and team will be a good fit for them. Companies with strong employment brands often see their candidate pool change, as candidates who mesh well with their approach apply to job openings and candidates who do not seek their fortunes elsewhere.
Your recruiter partner knows which job postings get results.
Not all job postings attract candidates in the same way. Some inspire applicants to send in their resumes right away, while others can make even the most engaging and exciting work sound like a total bore. Recruiting firms know what makes a job posting appeal to candidates, and they can help ensure that your company’s postings help the position shine.
Your recruiting firm can match you with the right person for the job – not merely the right skill set.
When you’re choosing a new hire, you often have the opportunity to choose among dozens or even hundreds of people with the right skill set. Skills alone aren’t enough. You also need someone whose personality, approach to work, and soft skills mesh well with the team you have. Your recruiter can help you find those candidates.
