A staffing agency can save your business time and money and find well-qualified candidates. So how do they really work? This quick video explains the process of hiring agencies.
A staffing agency acts as a middleman between employers and workers, helping to match qualified candidates with companies that have current job openings.
Staffing agencies charge a markup that typically ranges from 25% to 100% of the hired employee’s wages. Finding qualified talent remains challenging for many small companies. Reviewing applications, interviewing candidates and negotiating salaries all take precious time away from a business owner’s existing obligations, which may end up hurting the business in the long run. That’s why some employers partner with staffing agencies, which take a lot of the time and effort out of the search for candidates by providing their own workers for open roles. If you need additional staff, consider using a staffing agency to help you fill open positions. Most agencies handle all the paperwork associated with new hires, like contracts, taxes and other payroll tasks. It allows you to focus on other things but still be assured you will have great applicants to get started.
