Handling recruitment internally is expensive. There are risks of hiring lower-quality candidates or applicants who are not the right fit for the role. These problems can increase employee turnover and decrease team morale.
You have to spend additional money every time an employee leaves. This includes posting the job, reviewing applications, conducting interviews, and performing background and reference checks.
Adding new hires to the payroll is costly. They need to be onboarded, trained, and paid on time. This increases your costs for benefits, worker’s compensation, unemployment insurance, and related expenses.
A less expensive approach to recruitment involves partnering with a recruitment firm. It costs much less to outsource your hiring needs to experienced professionals whose sole focus is on recruitment.
Discover three ways partnering with a recruitment firm can help you save on hiring costs.
Decreased Job Vacancies
A recruitment firm has a vast network of active and passive candidates. These professionals come to you prequalified. The firm already reviewed each candidate’s resume, conducted interviews, and completed background and reference checks. You simply need to interview the candidates matched with your recruitment needs, decide which candidate you want to hire, and negotiate a job offer with the recruiter on behalf of the candidate. This helps fill your vacancies and get your new hires productive in a short amount of time. The less time your roles remain empty, the more money you save.
Lower Training Costs
Working with a recruitment firm typically means less time is needed for training new hires. Because these professionals come to you with years of experience, they tend to have a significant amount of knowledge and skills needed to perform the work. This means your new employees should be able to adapt to their duties in a short amount of time. The less time needed for training, the sooner your new hires can begin reaching your desired productivity levels.
Guaranteed Client Satisfaction
A recruitment firm typically provides a guarantee of your satisfaction with the candidate you choose to hire. This gives you time to evaluate the new hire’s on-the-job performance. You can make sure they blend with your team and company culture and are able to perform the job duties. If your new hire does not meet your standards and expectations, simply ask the recruiter to send over new candidates to interview and hire from at no additional cost.
