5_Undeniable_Advantages_of_Partnering_with_a_Canadian_Staffing_Agency.jpgIf you’ve always recruited and hired in house, you might want to continue doing so simply because it’s what you’ve always done. However, this might not be the best idea. There’s a reason so many companies are now moving towards outsourcing these functions to staffing agencies.

Here are some of the undeniable advantages of partnering with a Canadian staffing agency.

1. Market Knowledge

It pays to have knowledge of the Canadian job market. Knowing who the top talent is, knowing the average pay scales, understanding the challenges and opportunities in the market, and knowing about possible skills gaps ahead of time can all help you recruit and hire the very best in your industry. But who has the time to stay informed on all of these areas of recruitment?

With a Canadian staffing agency as your partner, you can benefit from a wealth of market knowledge, so you can stay one step ahead of your competitors.

2. Better Candidates

Let’s face it. You might just not have the time to recruit passive candidates. You might not have the time to find new recruitment sites to post on. You might not have the knowledge required to understand where to find top talent online. And you might rush through your hiring process, ignoring skills testing, background checks, and reference calls when you’re in a pinch. But your Canadian staffing agency partner will have the time and knowledge needed to seek out only the top candidates for your open positions.

3. Faster Hiring

There are significant consequences to having positions open for too long. The longer your in-house hiring process takes, the more overburdened your staff is, the less productive your workplace is, and the more work is left undone.

With a Canadian staffing agency by your side, you can significantly cut down on the amount of time required to recruit and hire. The agency will have a large candidate pool as well as existing relationships with dozens—if not hundreds—of candidates. You’ll be able to go straight to a short list and have your open positions filled quickly.

4. Better Retention, Reduced Turnover

Retaining the employees that you hire is important. A high turnover rate can be costly, both in terms of time and your bottom line. If you’re hiring all of the wrong candidates who aren’t a real fit to your corporate culture, they won’t last long in your employ.

Your Canadian staffing agency partner will have the hiring expertise required to recruit and hire holistically—by not only ensuring your new hires have the skills and experience you need, but also making sure they’re the right fit for your company. When you hire for cultural fit, you gain loyal, hard-working employees who are happy in your workplace and want to stay there for a long time.

5. Time and Money Savings

The hiring process can be time consuming and costly. There’s a lot of tedious legwork involved, like reviewing resumes, skills testing, interviewing, and calling up references. As you do this legwork in house, the rest of your responsibilities might fall by the wayside. But when you partner with a staffing firm, you won’t have to do any of it yourself. The firm’s recruiters will take care of it all for you.

The hiring process can also get quite expensive. You have to pay for recruitment ads, drug testing, background checks, and many other costs. When you partner with a Canadian staffing agency, you’ll get to roll all of those costs into one convenient agency fee, with no unexpected costs or hidden fees.
