Benefits of Using a Staffing Agency

How much did your company spend on its last hire? Between the productivity lost by employees doing extra work, the revenue lost during the drawn out hiring process, and the time spent poring through resumes & job boards, the cost of hard-to-find hires can take a serious chunk out of your budget. If your search for certain positions is too time-consuming and costly, it might make sense to bring in an experienced partner to aid in your search.

Recruiters, hiring managers and human resources managers often work with staffing agencies to fill open, and often more difficult-to-fill positions. Staffing companies provide a wide variety of services and types of employees — from entry-level workers to management and executive positions. If your business needs contract, direct-hire, or payroll services, there are many benefits of working with a staffing agency such as RCS Corporation for your next job opening.

Expertise

Top staffing agencies hire recruiters with direct experience in niche industries and often have a level of expertise that exceeds the human resources departments of most small businesses. Agencies know the available talent, where to find them and how to reach them. They are also more in tune with law changes, employment trends, and recruitment best practices. RCS’ recruiters have proven expertise in major industries, covering everything from engineering and information technology to human resources and marketing.

Talent Pool

Staffing agencies have many networks and therefore have access to a larger talent pool than most businesses. Some candidates are hard to find; some are passive, too picky, or aren’t located in a specific geographic area. If they aren’t responding to job advertisements, an agency will know exactly where to find active and passive candidates in your industry.

Cost Savings

Using a staffing company can be a cost-effective option for certain positions within your company. Your cost savings can be realized through

  • Efficiency: Recruiting, screening and hiring a candidate takes a lot of time. Delegating these tasks to an expert will reduce the amount of time and expense you spend on the hiring process. Time to hire is also an important factor when it comes to how much an open position can cost a company. The longer a position is open, the higher the cost due to a loss in productivity and diverting resources.
  • Money: Recruiting for top talent takes an investment in advertising dollars to reach your talent pool.  Agencies are already reaching the talent you need, so you can leverage their dollars and save yours.
  • Time Saving: Contracting a staffing agency allows your HR team to focus on the current needs of the department and not have to worry about sifting through hundreds of resumes, updating listings, and scheduling interviews. Hiring a staffing agency will also allow you to onboard your new team members quickly and reduce down-time.

RCS’ database is filled with thousands of talented professionals and with our team of recruiters focused on specialized roles, we can identify candidates that match even the most specialized hiring profiles. This means the hiring process can start sooner, helping you get the talent you need as quickly as possible.

Flexibility

Many businesses use a contingent workforce because of the added flexibility. As a business owner, you can use the staffing agency’s employees as much or little as you need. During slower times of the year you can downsize, and during busy times you will have access to great workers who can fill a vacancy in a matter of days.

RCS Corporation has a proven search process that locates active and passive professionals for your direct hire and contract needs. This expertise is accompanied by our expansive network of talented professionals and our highly skilled recruiting team who carefully screen each candidate. We find the right candidate to fit your long-term goals. Want to learn more about how RCS can assist you with your hiring needs? Email us at mail@rcscorporation.com .
