When Businesses Should Outsource Staffing and Recruitment

outsource staffing and recruitment
There are a few times when outsourcing your staffing and recruitment can significantly benefit your business.

In an ideal situation, any business would be able to rely on their HR department to recruit talent and fill key positions with exemplary employees. However, the resources or time required to find those employees isn’t always available when a company may need it. There are a few distinct situations in which turning to a staffing agency for staffing and recruitment will be more beneficial for businesses in need of several new employees. If your business is experiencing any of these three issues, consider utilizing First Team Staffing to hire the employees you need.

An Unexpected Rise in Turnover

One of the biggest signs that indicate that you can benefit from outsourcing staffing and recruitment is a noticeable rise in employee turnover. Sometimes this can happen by coincidence, but other times an increase in turnover can indicate that some employees are not the right fit for critical roles, or there may be an issue with company culture. Using a staffing agency at this time can help you fill those roles temporarily while you search for employees better suited to the positions. You may even find a temporary employee who is perfect for a permanent spot in your company!

A Loss of Productivity 

If you notice a dip in your business’s productivity, you should think critically about why this may be happening. Did you recently lose several employees? Are your current employees checked out, frustrated, or overwhelmed by work? If so, you may need to either find employees better-suited to key roles, or bring on more employees to carry the overwhelming workload. In this instance, outsourcing staffing and recruitment can help you focus on addressing your current workforce and productivity issues. 

A Transition in Leadership

When your business experiences a change in leadership or establishes new goals, you may need to change your hiring practices. For instance, if a company decides to pursue a limited number of jobs with specific target profit margins, you may consider shifting to an as-needed or on-demand staffing approach rather than holding a full-time staff. Using a staffing agency to help you with staffing and recruitment when the jobs come in can help you get the best temporary employees for each new project, while you stay focused on the big picture.
