One of the reasons that working with a staffing partner can be so helpful to busy hiring managers is that they are familiar with the talent currently in play. By developing and networking with a bench of existing candidates, they are better able to provide employers with a well-rounded applicant pool. They are also familiar with the candidates they have placed in the past who they know will be looking for future work, either due to a contract coming to an end or simple career development.

By working with a staffing agency, you are giving yourself access to a network of talented accounting professionals who are pre-screened and proven on the job. You reduce the risk of hiring employees who are more interested in a paycheck than what they are doing or who they are working for. It’s a win-win for both candidates and employers alike.

If you are considering whether working with a staffing partner can help you break through the talent gaps that your business is struggling with, here are a few ways we can help your business become more successful.

1. Build a More Strategic Hiring Process

Interviewing at least a few candidates who are not in a rush to come on board right away can reduce the pressure on the hiring end as well. This allows you to be strategic in your planning. You are better able to understand how candidates would fit your needs in the position, engage in multiple layers of interviews and evaluations, and have time on your side during salary negotiations. This more strategic hiring process is generally easier and less rushed for both parties, the employee and the employer, which allows both sides to fully commit to the change in relationship.

2. Engage with Passive Candidates

As an employer, you likely default to interviewing candidates who appear proactive and fully engaged in their job search. But did you know that job-seekers who are currently employed but passively seeking new opportunities can also be a great source for high-quality hires as well? It’s often one of the least considered hiring strategies, in part because it takes so much time and expertise to even know where to look. That’s why working with a staffing partner can be the best path forward.

3. Offload Your Risk

Possibly the best thing you can do to remove luck from the hiring equation is partnering with a hiring expert who knows what to look for in a candidate, how to best bring them onboard, and provide them with the support and information a new hire needs to get up to speed quickly. That investment costs companies in a big way, but by bringing in someone who has the expertise to find and recruit the right people for the job, you’re on your way to more successful hires and more peace of mind.
