5_Perks_of_Partnering_with_a_Canadian_Staffing_Agency.jpgWhether you’re in need of full-time, part-time, or temporary workers, partnering with a Canadian staffing agency can be the best way to expand your workforce.

The recruitment and hiring process can be costly, lengthy, and prone to error. If you hire in house, you’re probably well acquainted with the struggles, challenges, and hassles that come with the process. Partnering with a Canadian staffing agency can make all these problems disappear, making recruitment and hiring faster, more efficient, and easier than ever.

Here are just some of the perks of a partnership with a staffing firm.

1. Better Candidates

It can be frustrating to write a job description, post an ad, wait weeks for applications, and still only get poor and mediocre candidates interested in the position. Should you choose the best of the worst or should you restart the process all over again?

When you work with a Canadian staffing agency, you won’t have to deal with poor candidates anymore. The firm’s recruiters will go above and beyond, think outside of the box, and recruit on many different channels in order to scoop the best candidates from the job market, both active and passive. The recruiters understand what it takes to gain the interest of top talent, know how to reach out, and also develop and nurture relationships with the best candidates, so you can expect to choose a new hire from a shortlist of high-quality candidates.

2. Better Hires

Making bad hiring decisions happens more often than you might like. You make hiring mistakes without realizing it and hire someone who isn’t qualified for the job, isn’t a right fit for the position, or just doesn’t work out for one reason or another. And you’re back to square one after spending all the time, effort, and money on recruiting, hiring, and training.

With a Canadian staffing agency as your hiring partner, you will be able to breathe easy knowing that every candidate is extensively tested and personally interviewed to ensure a good match not only to the position, but to your company as well. Staffing agencies will perform skill testing, do background checks, call up references, scrutinize resumes, and ask the right interview questions to ensure that you only get quality hires from now on.

3. Reduced Turnover

You know how costly turnover can be. If your new employees aren’t staying on the job long, you’re continuously wasting valuable time and money. The reduced productivity and higher overtime costs can also hurt your bottom line.

Since a staffing agency can help you find better hires who are not only great for the job, but also a match to your company’s culture, you can successfully cut your turnover rate.

4. Faster Hiring

It can take several weeks, if not months, for the hiring process to be complete and your new hire onboarded. During this time, you have to deal with the consequences of having positions left open for too long, like reduced efficiency and productivity, burned out and overburdened employees, higher overtime costs, and increased risks and liabilities.

When you work with a staffing firm, you’ll enjoy faster hiring and avoid all of these consequences. Your staffing agency will have a large candidate pool of pre-screened and pre-approved talent for you to choose from. Before you even call requesting help, most of the hiring process will already be completed, so you’ll get new employees on site faster.

5. Temp-to-Perm Hiring

Hiring is a risky endeavour. You only have a resume and a short interview to base your decisions on. A lot can go wrong. A Canadian staffing agency can offer you temp-to-perm hiring, which means that you get to test out new employees on site and see them in action, before making financial commitments and final decisions on permanent hiring. This will significantly reduce your risks of hiring.
