5-Benefits-of-Partnering-with-a-Canadian-Staffing-Agency.jpgStaffing agencies are valuable resources for more than temporary staffing solutions. These days, staffing firms offer a valuable array of services on top of their hiring solutions for both permanent and temporary hiring needs. Canadian businesses that partner with a staffing agency benefit from expertise, great prices, saved time, great talent, and much more. Here are just five of the benefits of partnering with a Canadian staffing agency.

1. Canadian Expertise

When you partner with a Canadian staffing agency, you set yourself up to benefit from the expertise and know-how that comes with a professional company with plenty of experience and a roster of varied clients. Only by working with different clients and encountering various different hiring situations can someone earn experience that makes them a hiring expert. Many times, staffing agencies come with experience that far surpasses human resources departments. 

With the right amount of industry experience, job knowledge, and engagement with hiring trends, staffing firms offer a level of expertise that simply can’t be beat.

2. Price

Hiring a candidate who doesn’t end up being a good match in the long run can be very expensive for business owners. Not only does unproductivity affect your company’s bottom line, the resources spent hiring, onboarding, and training an unsuccessful hire can have a serious impact on your finances and company morale. 

Employers that partner with a Canadian staffing agency benefit from lower costs in hiring adequate staff. Staffing agencies manage the entire employment process, offering relief in the areas of pre-employment testing, background investigations, and other screening processes. Small businesses in particular find they can rely on the savings offered by staffing agencies when they get talented candidates without having to do much of the heavy lifting.

3. Access to a Wide Network

Similar to the expertise offered by a staffing agency, companies that are in the hiring business come with networks that hiring managers and recruiters simply don’t have. Hiring in house without the same network of contacts that comes with a staffing firm won’t yield the same results as working with a staffing firm.

What’s more, staffing agencies come with a network of talent that employers often don’t have. For businesses looking to add seasonal or permanent workers, they need to go through the paces of advertising openings, interviewing candidates, and going through all the required paperwork. With a network of talent at its disposal, a Canadian staffing agency has the resources to make great hiring decisions at an enviable pace.

4. Speed

As previously discussed, the expertise and networks of talent that come with staffing agencies make partnering with a Canadian staffing agency a natural choice for any employer looking to add to their team.

As is the case with many hiring needs, oftentimes speed is a very important factor in bringing on a new employee. For companies looking to quickly fill a vacancy with the right type of talent, a staffing firm can offer hiring speed and high candidate calibre that they require to focus on more important business responsibilities.

5. The Relationship

When you work with a Canadian staffing agency that works for you, you build an important relationship that you can maintain for other hiring needs down the line. Having a partner in a staffing firm is a valuable relationship from which all employers can benefit.

Staffing firms offer a pool of talent at your disposal as well as other HR services that can offer relief and support to your business. Having experts on your side as your business grows will help your business stay competitive in your industry.
