If you’re currently using traditional (and often ineffective) recruitment methods, such as job boards to track down new talent, you could be missing out on attracting the best people. More and more companies are turning to recruiters to hire new employees and with good reason. Not only can recruiters help you to find the right people. They will also save you from wading through oceans of resumes, and ensure you attract talent that sticks around for the long haul.
No matter what industry you are in, how many employees you need, or which jobs you have open, a recruiter will help you to fill those positions and get the best for your workforce. In this article, we’ll take a look at the many benefits of using a recruiter and how to get the best out of this partnership.
They Are Experts in Their Field
Very often, departmental managers are responsible for hiring their own staff and teams. Sometimes, there may be a dedicated hiring manager that is responsible for recruitment throughout the organization. However, nothing can beat the enthusiasm of a dedicated recruiter in finding top talent. Using the services of a recruiter not only helps you to find the best people but also frees up employees within the company to focus on their primary duties. It’s also possible to use the services of recruiters who are experts in finding candidates in a specific industry. Whether you need construction specialists for a particular project or C-level management superstars, your recruiter will have access to the right people with the right skill set.
Recruiters are Independent to Your Organization
Because recruiters are outside of your organization, they won’t be scared to ask more specific or direct questions when vetting candidates. These questions may be about finances, personal goals, strengths and weaknesses, or why they are leaving their current role. Potential candidates may also be more willing to part with this information when they are speaking to a recruiter rather than the organization they wish to work for. The answers to these questions can help recruiters to select the most suitable candidates for the role as well as weeding out those who are unsuitable.
Recruiters Dig Deeper
Have you ever hired somebody only to find they aren’t the right fit after all? Not only do you have to go through the hiring and onboarding process again but that employee will also need to go through the employee exit process. What a waste of time and resources. That’s why it pays to hire a recruiter. Recruiters love digging a little deeper into a candidate’s history, finding their true interests and goals. Candidates are more likely to share their desires with a recruiter outside of your organization. They have a vested interest in ensuring you get the best return on your investment. In short, recruiters can spot those red flags early on that be overlooked when using traditional search and hire methods.
Recruiters Provide Exceptional Value
While recruiter services may not be free, the charge for the service can be very cost-effective in the long run. Think about how much time, money, and effort you have spent trying to find the right candidates for a job in the past. The fact is that employee turnover can be expensive. Getting the decision wrong at the start can result in lost time, wasted resources, damage to morale, and lost opportunities. Instead, why not hand over the reins to a recruiter? In doing so, you’ll experience quality over quantity, interview fewer people, and find the right person for the job faster than ever before.
Recruiters Use a Process
Recruiters are not only experts in their field but they also know the hiring processes that work. From getting to know your organization and the jobs you have open to keeping you in the loop during every stage of the search and recruitment process, your recruiter will be with you every step of the way. They will also get to know your specific onboarding process so that they can help new employees hit the ground running on their first day working for you. Need specific services tailored to your requirements? Whether you have entrance exams that candidates need to take or you have a very stringent vetting process, your recruiting will work closely with you to ensure your needs are met.
Recruiters Want to Form Lasting Relationships
Recruiters will go out of their way to make you happy and to form a long-lasting mutually beneficial partnership with you and your organization. Finding the right employees will often lead to repeat business. Recruiters know this and will do everything in their power to give you the best return on your investment. Whether you hire sporadically throughout the year, or you need a recruiter on hand every week or month to find the right people, your recruiter will deliver exceptional service for many years to come. What’s more, many recruiters offer guarantees. Should a candidate not work out, your recruiter will work hard to put matters right with as little downtime or disruption for your organization.
Recruiters Can Negotiate on Your Behalf
As an employer, an annoying part of the recruitment process is when you’ve made a job offer to the preferred candidate, only to find you’re both poles apart when it comes to salary and perks. Before you get into a salary negotiation face-off, your recruiter can help you benchmark remuneration packages against other businesses and current trends. Recruiters can also negotiate on your behalf and agree on a mutually beneficial package. If the employer and employee are aware of the other’s expectations from the start, it can help to secure a deal early on.
