Some businesses particularly small and medium businesses in India refuse to work with a staffing agency because they think it is an unnecessary expenditure and they don’t need it.
But what if you get a big project and need extra hands immediately or you want to expand the business and need manpower for that? Would you spend your time making strategies & do planning for the new project or you will spend all your time in finding good people for your team?
Here ‘s when these staffing agencies could be of great help. Let’s look at a few advantages of hiring a staffing agency:
1. Saves Cost
Companies might think that hiring a recruitment agency will cost them extra. But in fact, it costs even less from what you would spend on doing it on your own.
When starting a new project staffing agency can save the cost of a new HR that the company will hire to manage the new team. They even give you prescreened CVs which will reduce your cost of posting your job on various job boards.
2. Increased hiring speed
Closing any position quickly is not possible; some profiles may take time up to 1 or 2 months. But, a recruitment agency has a bulk database, specialized team, and strong software that will shorten the recruitment process and they can provide relevant profiles quickly.
3. Screened and qualified profiles
Hiring a recruitment agency will make the recruitment process easier and faster.
They will do all the hard work for you, they will pre-screen the candidates and give the profiles that are the right fit for your needs.
4. Freedom from compliance hassle
Agencies take care of all the employee benefits, payrolls, taxes, insurance and they are always up to date with the changing employment laws, so that there are no legal complications for the companies.
5. Flexible workforce
A lot of time companies need a workforce for seasonal requirements or for a one time project. It is difficult to find contractual employees or temporary workers. A staffing agency will solve your problem, it will give you the flexibility to you and save you from long term commitments.
