The Las Vegas area is brimming with talented professionals, but these individuals aren’t always easy to track down. If you’re having trouble finding top-level candidates to come to work for your organization, it’s time to realign your hiring process.
Despite many common misconceptions, partnering with a Las Vegas staffing firm is the single most effective way to connect with the best and brightest talent in the region. Stop trying — and failing — to choose the best person for the job on your own and allow a skilled recruiter to do the work for you.
Still a little leery about working with a staffing partner? We’ve debunked three common misconceptions plaguing Las Vegas staffing agencies, so you can feel confident your company is in very good hands.
Staffing Firms Only Provide Temporary Workers
Many managers think they can only get temporary employees from staffing agencies, but this idea is simply not true. Recruiters offer temporary, temp-to-hire and direct hire workers, so all you have to do is set the employment terms and they’ll start searching for candidates who meet your criteria. When working with a recruiter, you have the unique ability to hire candidates on a temporary basis, with the option to make a permanent spot for the person at your company if things go well — but there’s no obligation whatsoever to take this route.
Working With a Staffing Firm Isn’t Economical
It’s true that you’ll have to pay a fee for the services of a recruiter, but many don’t charge a dime until you’ve hired a candidate they recommend. Regardless, the cost of a bad hire can cost up to five times the amount of the person’s annual salary, according to a study conducted by the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM). It’s far more cost-effective to pay a nominal recruiter’s fee to quickly and easily find the best person for the job, than dealing with excessive turnover rates.
Recruiters Don’t Provide Quality Employees
There’s a long-standing idea that recruiters will endorse the first remotely qualified candidate so they can collect their finder’s fee and move on to the next job, so to set the record straight once-and-for-all, this couldn’t be more false. Any staffing agency worth your time wants to build a lasting relationship with you. Obviously, you won’t continue to work with the firm if you don’t receive quality candidates, so your recruiter will bend over backwards to find talent who exceeds your expectations.
