What-You-Can-Expect-from-Partnering-with-a-Canadian-Staffing-Agency.jpgYour workforce is your biggest asset. Having talented and experienced full-time, part-time, and temporary employees on staff can mean the difference between the success of your company and its failure. You need top talent in order to enhance productivity, improve efficiency, and boost your bottom line.

When expanding your workforce, consider partnering with a Canadian staffing agency. Here’s what you can expect from this strategic decision.

Access to Better Candidates

When hiring in house and using the typical recruitment channels, like online job boards, it can be pretty disappointing—yet not too surprising—to only receive applications from poor and mediocre candidates. After waiting weeks for applications to come in, and even more time spent on interviewing candidates, you might realize that no one is qualified, and you have to either start the hiring process all over again or settle for a less-than-ideal new hire.

When you partner with a Canadian staffing agency, you can say goodbye to this hiring challenge. Your recruiters will have the time, expertise, and resources to seek out top talent and use out-of-the-box recruiting methods that only attract the best. Finally, you’ll be able to choose from many qualified candidates.

No Hiring Mistakes

Even the best HR managers can make hiring mistakes. It happens. When you don’t hire day in and day out like recruiters do, it can be difficult to effectively spot the gems and weed out the bad apples. And sometimes, bias gets in the way.

Recruiters can significantly reduce or even eliminate the risk of hiring mistakes. They’ll get to know your company and its values, needs, and objectives. They’ll get to understand the type of employee you’re looking for. And they’ll work diligently to recruit people who fit the job description and your company culture. They’ll also use tried-and-true screening methods.

Reduce Turnover

High turnover can plague your business for many reasons. Perhaps you settled for a mediocre candidate who can’t get the job done well. Perhaps you didn’t screen for cultural fit and the new hire isn’t a great match to your ethics and values. Perhaps you made hiring mistakes and the new hire was never fit to be hired in the first place.

Whatever the reason, it’s a fact that turnover can be costly. You have to pay more for recruiting, hiring, and training. Turnover can reduce efficiency and productivity. And valuable time can be wasted.

With a Canadian staffing agency by your side helping you make more informed hiring decisions, your turnover rate can be reduced and retention increased.

Fast Hiring

Having positions left open for too long can be problematic. The longer you take to recruit, screen, interview, and hire, the longer you face reduced productivity, burned out employees, overtime costs, poor customer service, missed deadlines, and more. Fast hiring is absolutely essential to your bottom line.

A Canadian staffing agency will already have a large candidate pool filled with top talent who have been pre-screened and pre-approved for your convenience. You can significantly cut down on the time it takes to hire through your new partnership.

Training and Onboarding

New employee training, orientation, and onboarding is critical to the success of your workforce. You want to ensure that your new employees are equipped with the tools, practice, and knowledge required for success. You want to make sure they’re ready to be productive members of your team as soon as possible. But training employees can be costly, time consuming, and prone to error.

A Canadian staffing agency partner that offers training can help you ensure that you set up your new hires for success, so everyone benefits.
