Advantages of recruitment for your business

#1: Faster hiring

Using a recruitment agency will shorten the time it takes to fill your open positions. A recruitment agency can find candidates much faster than you can.
Recruitment agency has a vast talent pool in their database, a network of connections to leverage, and access to expensive systems that help them locate people with those hard to find skills you are looking for.
This means that the only people that agencies submit for your review are ones that fit your criteria. All of this helps shorten your time to hire!

#2: High-quality candidates

Using a recruitment agency increases your ability to meet with high-quality candidates. They have access to a large talent pool of pre-screened and referenced candidates. You are only meeting with candidates that have been already carefully assessed and interviewed.
A recruitment agency deals with candidates on a daily basis, and their consultants are experts at interviewing. Through best-practice methods, they understand both their candidate needs and your requirements to make a great match.
#3: Specific recruitment knowledge
As your company grows and changes, your inhouse recruitment team may need to conduct complex interviews for positions they are not necessarily familiar with.
A recruitment agency has staff that specialise in recruiting for different sectors. The agency often have a better knowledge of different and specific roles and the skills needed for them. The recruitment consultants also are able to spot transferable skills others may miss.

#4: Knowledge of the market

Through their conversations with both clients and candidates, the best recruiters gain quite a bit of knowledge about the sector they work in. They are often able to provide you with valuable insight and sage advice. This is a crucial part of their job.
When you use a recruitment agency you gain access to their knowledge of salary rates, available skill sets, career expectations, current hiring complexities, and even market trends, you may otherwise have never known about.

#5: Reach to ‘passive talents’

Not all the best candidates are actively looking for a new job. Recruitment firms call those candidates ‘passive talent’, and they take a little longer to find.
There is a strong possibility these recruiters know who those people are, how to reach them, and more importantly, know how to incentivise them to make a move – another benefit to working with an agency.

#6: This is what they specialize!

The most significant advantage of working with a recruitment agency is that this is what they do profesionally!
They write compelling job ads to maximise the number of applicants. They quickly and effectively screen candidates to check out the strongest candidates early in the process. Their work day in and day out to meet your hiring needs.

Advantages of headhunting services for your business

Headhunting is sometimes the most efficient option for businesses. Otherwise known as retained search/executive search, headhunting involves finding the most suitable and skilled professional for a specific role for a company – even if the individual is not actively looking for a new job.
The process is extremely thorough and typically involves handpicking the best candidates – some of whom may be working for competitors – and contacting them directly in order to convince them to participate in the recruitment process and engage with the new company.

So what are the benefits of headhunting as opposed to traditional recruitment methods?

Unlike other recruitment approaches, headhunting is targeted – every candidate is carefully selected against requirements. Headhunters identify perfect-fit candidates, as well as potential sources they can use to help them find additional talent. That way, they can find the right candidates for your business and waste no time looking through CVs or interviewing unsuitable candidates.
Headhunting also takes into account the fact that while candidates may not be actively applying for jobs, they may be interested when potential opportunities are presented to them. Rather than posting job vacancies on job boards, headhunters carefully tailor job adverts for individuals who meet the criteria outlined by you (the client) and try to engage with candidates through professional channels, such as LinkedIn.
For ‘difficult to fill’ positions, such as senior and C-level roles, or roles that you do not want to advertise publicly, headhunters are the ideal solution.

Headhunting is suitable for:

  • Top, senior and middle management roles
  • Where there are requirements for defined and unique skills/experience
  • When there’s defined sourcing base
  • The client is ready to use this service and attract best talent

Advantages of staff leasing for your business

Remote employment is becoming increasingly popular, there might still be a time when small businesses need a team they can interact with physically. Businesses turn to staff leasing when they want to strategically expand their team. A third-party can help them provide staffing that will do in-house tasks for them on a fraction of direct employment.

Staff leasing for your business

Staff leasing is the process of hiring employees through a third-party company. This works the same as seat leasing where the third party provides the office space complete with equipment and connection needed for their work. Only, they will provide the manpower and cover the administrative duties for them.
The company (Professional Employment Organization) and the business owner share employment responsibilities for the staff. Their work duties will come from the employer while the third party will take care of the salaries, benefits, and tax payment, all paid by the employer.

Employers decide to do staff leasing for a few reasons:

  • Ease the burden on administrative services. Hiring additional employees mean additional paperwork required for compliance. It also means additional tasks needed such as payroll management. With staff leasing, the Professional Employment Organization can handle the administrative services needed for staff employment, including tax payment, benefits application, etc.
  • Save on recruiting costs. Since Professional Employment Organization do the recruitment for the business, the costs of hiring and onboarding an employee is now decreased. It is also an advantage for their HR team since they can focus on core activities for the company.
  • Hire for maintenance and other services. To focus on the main tasks, employers lease staff to do maintenance work. Most staff leasing firms provide blue-collar employees.

Staff leasing has a lot of advantages to their clients:

  • Access to local top talents. There’s no need for employers to have expertise in finding high-quality talents needed for their roles. The leasing agency will do it for them.
  • Expertise in compliance. The staff leasing agencies are trained to coordinate with tax agencies and other offices and comply with their required paperwork needed for new staff. With this, employers can assure that they will file these documents with minimal errors in their part.
  • Legal protection. In case an employee sues them for alleged discrimination or wrongful termination, a staff leasing partner can help them provide the legal requirements for the trial, etc.
