Perhaps you are considering making use of a recruitment agency but are a bit reluctant. Of course, it is important to take all facts into account. If you are unsure of why you should consider hiring a recruitment agency, here are a few reasons why:
- It saves you time
You can continue with your day-to-day business tasks, meetings and obligations while the recruitment agency works on finding you the right candidates. This means less responsibilities for you to take care of.
2. Access to more candidates
Recruitment agencies often have access to a database of candidates that you may not have access to. They have connections and relationships that they have built over time that make it easier to find personnel.
3. Recruitment knowledge
It takes knowledge and experience to recruit suitable candidates. Not to mention, it requires skill to manage clients, applications and potential candidates all at once. You may not have the time, experience or know-how; which makes hiring a recruitment agency a good choice.
4. Culture promotion
In order to find a suitable fit for you, recruiters need to know the culture and values of your company, which puts them in the best position to promote you. They will make an effort to educate potential candidates on your work environment and do the groundwork to prepare them.
5. Less financial risk
You do not need to be stuck with candidates you are unsatisfied with. Most recruitment agencies have a clause in their contract which binds them to providing you with candidates, which means you are entitled to ask for different candidates in the event that you are not satisfied after the trial period. This way you are guaranteed to receive a return on your investment.
