If you are an employer, you are well aware that it is more challenging than ever to find qualified employees who want to stay with your organization for the long-run. We are in a candidate-driven market. What does this mean for you? Well, it means it is more expensive and takes longer for you to hire someone. Now is the time to really evaluate your recruiting practices.
You may be asking yourself, “Should I use a Staffing Agency to hire employees?”. There are many benefits of using a staffing agency in today’s market such as efficiency, reduced costs due to a vacant position, quicker turnaround time, stress-free hiring, and access to candidates you may have not otherwise found. According to a study conducted by Deloitte, companies spend an average of $4,000 to fill an open position, and it takes an average of 52 days to fill an open position. The top two obstacles to hiring a new employee are the shortage of candidates and lengthy hiring process (Recruiter Sentiment Study 2015, MRI Network). In fact, 47% of small businesses report there are few or no qualified applicants for their open positions (NFIB, November 2015).
