Research Your Staffing Agency

Staffing Agency

There are few things more critical to business success than identifying, attracting, recruiting, and retaining talented employees. Top candidates are always in high demand and competition between employers is fierce.  This includes every hire, whether they are internal staff or through a staffing agency. Whoever you work with remember to research your staffing agency.


Working with a staffing agency promises several benefits:

Flexibility – Many companies hire a greater proportion of contract workers and short-term/temporary employees. Staffing agencies are flexible and well-placed to accommodate these requests.

Recruitment Tools – Staffing agencies will have access to sophisticated recruitment tools and software to find top talent.

Reduced Costs –  A staffing agency can significantly reduce a company’s recruitment burden and reduce overall costs.

Increased Efficiency – Staffing agencies have access to a larger pool of pre-screened talent and the most up to date recruitment tools, which can dramatically shorten a hiring cycle.

A decent staffing agency can certainly supply all of these benefits.  But, with so many options available, finding the perfect fit can be a little overwhelming. Consider the following when selecting an agency.

Needs and Priorities

  1. Define your company goals for selecting the right staffing agency. By clearly articulating your needs, will make it easier to recognize whether or not that staffing agency is the right fit for your organization. Some important things to consider:
  2. What are your organization’s core values? It’s important that you describe your workplace culture and the qualities you rate most highly in prospective candidates.
  3. Will this be a long-term or short-term partnership?  How many workers do you need and what would they be doing.  Incorporate you staffing agency into your overall staff plan. How often does your company use temporary workers?
  4. Does your company need a staffing agency that can manage the entire end-to-end hiring process, to include sourcing, interviewing, screening, skill-testing, etc.?

Staffing Agency History

Do some research to find out how long they have been in business. What type of organizations have they worked with in the past.  What is their online reputation and their experience working in your industry. Be sure to reference-check any prospective staffing agencies.

Ultimately, when it comes to selecting a staffing agency, there’s no one size fits all approach. But before you make any final decisions think carefully about your needs, priorities, goals and your company culture.
