Congratulations! You’ve made the smart decision to partner with a staffing agency. We all know that working with a recruiter can save you time and money when looking to hire qualified candidates for your business. But what can you do, the client, to help streamline the recruitment process and get the absolute most out of what you’re paying for? Here are our top 5 tips when working with a staffing agency:
Engage With The Agency: Here at Sloane Staffing, an agency staffing West Palm Beach, we provide multiple channels for you to contact our team. Reach out at (561) 512-8989, send us a note to firstname.lastname@example.org, or simply drop us a message on our web page and tell us all about your hiring needs.
Maintain An Open Line Of Communication: Once in contact with your recruitment agency, it is imperative to keep an open line of communication with them. Conversation only enhances their performance, and this client-vendor relationship thrives on communication!
Be Prepared: When asking your recruiter to start a new search for a position, always have the job description ready and confirmation that the position has been budgeted for and approved. In addition, make sure that you and your teams will have the time and resources needed to complete the interview process and on-boarding sessions with your potential new hire.
Provide Feedback Quickly: As soon as an interview has concluded, give feedback on your experience to your recruiter. Be direct and transparent, don’t beat around the bush or try and sugar-coat when delivering potentially negative news. Your agency will respect your honesty.
Be Proactive: In the hot job market that we are in, getting your phone and in-person interviews scheduled quickly will give you a competitive advantage. Candidates are interviewing elsewhere, and you don’t want to miss out on the perfect new employee to help grow and support your business because you weren’t being proactive enough.
We hope this guide helps you to work with your new staffing or recruiting agency. If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to us, at 561.512.8989.
