Based off these numbers, the Business Development Bank of Canada (BDC) states that now is the best time for companies to make investments that will help them improve their productivity and competitiveness.

Read on for seven key benefits a staffing firm can offer your company.

1. Expertise in Canadian Staffing

Canada is a tricky country to do business in, especially when it comes to staffing. There are many intricacies to remaining compliant with the country’s employment standards that vary from province to province, and territory to territory.

Partnering with a staffing firm will give you access to experts who know the process of hiring candidates intimately from years of experience. A firm’s recruiters will ensure you hire top talent and meet all Canadian standards.

2. Lower Your Costs

There’s a common misconception that staffing firms cost more than in-house hiring and recruiting. This notion couldn’t be further from the truth. In fact, outsourcing your recruitment to a firm lowers your costs. A staffing agency takes care of pre-employment screening, interviewing, and sourcing qualified candidates. Not to mention, you won’t need to worry about payroll processing for temporary workers, because the staffing agency takes care of that for you. You’ll save money, time, and resources.

3. Network of Local Talent

Your company no doubt would like to keep the hiring process as simple as possible. Hiring locally from a firm is a great way to ensure candidates are the right fit. Local workers are easier to recruit, have an easier time commuting to your company, and are more likely to stay long term.

Agencies have access to networks of local talent, so take full advantage of this opportunity.

4. Hire Fast

Accomplished firms have a solid roster of candidates and are always adding top talent to their candidate pools. If you need a hiring solution fast, a firm can match you with a pre-screened candidate as fast as possible. During the holidays or in the event of a personal leave, firms have you covered with skilled temp workers.

5.Variety of Solutions

Staffing firms know that not all companies are looking to solely hire temp workers. Proficient staffing firms will offer a variety of hiring solutions to best suit your company’s needs, including permanent and temporary-to-permanent placements in addition to temporary.

Temporary-to-permanent is also known as “try before you hire,” which can be ideal for companies that want to ensure the cultural fit of a candidate before hiring them on full time.

6. Placements for Specific Niches

Many staffing firms work specifically within niches, ensuring greater understanding of roles to be filled and valuable industry knowledge. Liberty Staffing, for instance, focuses on providing staffing solutions for office, warehouse, and industrial fields.

When you engage a staffing agency, you can trust that they understand the needs of your company and your unique industry.

7. Boost Retention

Lastly, a firm allows you to hire the right people for your business, which will help you improve your retention rate. Recruiters look for skills, experience, as well as cultural fit, increasing the chance your new employees will stay with you for the long term.
