Looking for a successful resource when hiring? Working with a temporary staffing agency might be the answer

temporary-staffingThe American Staffing Association defines a temporary staffing service as:

“A service whose business consists primarily of recruiting and hiring its own employees and assigning them to other organizations to support or supplement their workforces, or to provide assistance in special work situations such as employee absences, skill shortages, and seasonal workloads, or to perform special assignments or projects.”

Why turn to staffing?

Your business will benefit in more ways than one when utilizing the resources of a staffing agency. The possibility of a bad hire becomes reduced exponentially due to the fact that a staffing agency’s sole purpose is selecting the right candidate that suits your requirements.

To ensure you are in good hands with the staffing agency you select, be certain the agency provides a rigorous screening process and researches each potential candidate before placement. Background checks defined by the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA) are used to determine a potential candidate’s criminal history and behavioral patterns over time. While you may assume that the majority of staffing companies are performing high-quality background checks on every candidate, many are actually performing low-quality checks or checks that are not in compliance with the FCRA and state laws.

Need a break?

In order to avoid employee burnout, hiring a temporary employee for a period of time is a great solution. Overworked employees equal high employee turnover, which results in finding and training a new employee. You can avoid this process completely by hiring a temporary employee to step in and offer some much-needed help to those who needs a break.

Finding the perfect fit

Before making the final decision to hire an employee full-time, you have the option of bringing them on temporarily to ensure they’re the right fit. Again, staffing agencies are a valuable resource that you can utilize in order to provide you with a select number of candidates that would best fit the requirements for your temp-to-perm position. Allowing a trial period to ensure a candidate is performing to your standards saves you both the time and trouble of possibly making the mistake of a bad hire.

How do you know utilizing a temporary staffing agency will work in your favor? The hiring process is tremendously time-consuming and if you’re willing to put in the extra effort to find the perfect candidate, then by all means do. However, if you would prefer to not spend your days sifting through multiple resumes and endless interviews, then allow a staffing agency to provide you with the optimal candidate and let you get back to work.
