Unfortunately, the COVID-19 pandemic has made 2020 a tough year for the Las Vegas economy. This has led to sky-high unemployment rates, so there’s a lot of competition for jobs available in Las Vegas right now.
On the surface, this might seem like hiring will be easier, but that’s probably not the case. If anything, it will likely make successfully recruiting the right employees like finding a needle in a haystack. Consequently, this is why working with a staffing firm is the best way to find top talent. Here’s a look at what you have to gain by delegating your hiring to a local recruiter.
Four Ways a Staffing Firm Can Improve Your Hiring
Connect With Passive Talent
The employees you want to hire might not be actively seeking new opportunities right now. They probably won’t see your job posting on their own, but your recruiter can easily get it in front of them.
Staffing professionals work hard to maintain talent pools filled with passive candidates who would only consider making a move for a really enticing opportunity. When you partner with them, you gain access to these people who wouldn’t typically be in your reach.
Find a Strong Cultural Fit
Hiring the right person for the job is hard work. It’s easy to assume you’ve found the right fit if a candidate seems like perfect skills match, but there’s much more to it than that. Recruiters know the only truly successful hires are those that serve as an all-around fit. Therefore, they’ll ask questions and look for subtle personality traits that will help them determine the person’s fit for your company culture.
Fill Open Positions Faster
Hiring is a very time-consuming task, but you already have a lot on your plate. This can make the candidate selection process drag on much longer than intended. In the meantime, you risk losing top talent to other employers — along with expensive overtime costs and low morale due to burnout from existing employees working overtime.
When you work with a recruiter, they make filling your open position their top priority. This means you’ll be able to get the right person in place in no time at all.
Get More Flexibility
Building the right team isn’t always as simple as posting an open position and making a permanent hire. Sometimes you might only need to fill a role temporarily or prefer to ease into it on a temp-to-hire basis. When you work with a recruiter, they’ll help you create a hiring plan that best works for your team, allowing you to get all the flexibility you need.
