Save Time & Money by Partnering with a Staffing Agency

Partnering with a staffing agency can make a huge difference in your overall hiring process and turnover rates. Because you will have a staff of dedicated professionals attending to all of your recruiting, hiring, and onboarding needs, you will have more time to focus on internal projects. Beyond that, you’ll rest assured knowing you are getting the best possible candidates to work with your company. Here are some key reasons why agencies like GoSource can save your light industrial company time and money when it comes to hiring. 

Faster Hiring Process  

First of all, working with a staffing agency will save you and your candidate’s time. When you enlist the help of staffing professionals, you will fill the open positions in your company faster. This is because the agency is already tapped into a large talent pool. Not only will this help your business fill urgent positions in a timely manner, but it will also create a more positive candidate experience.  

Additionally, recruiters have experience in sourcing candidates who are a good fit for the position and the company as a whole. This will help reduce your risk of a bad hire, which can be extremely costly for businesses. It will also decrease your turnover rate, which is good for morale and productivity in the workplace.  

No Job Advertising Costs  

Another way agencies can help you save money is you won’t be spending anything on advertising positions with job boards. Advertising on these sites won’t produce the quality candidates that you’ll receive by working with an agency either.  

You will also be able to save time when it comes to listing your jobs as well. Your organization won’t have to spend time crafting the perfect job description or waiting for the perfect candidate to apply. The agency will take care of creating a job description that fits your need and then tap into their already-existing talent pool to find a quality candidate for the job. They’ll do all of this at a fraction of the cost it normally takes to post to job sites. 

Hire the Help You Need 

Lastly, staffing agencies can help you decide what level of help you need. Companies often make the mistake of hiring full-time employees for a job that could be handled by a temporary or part-time worker. The average hourly cost of a worker is over $36 when wages and benefits are taken into consideration. So, knowing exactly how much help you need is beneficial from a cost standpoint. 

Oftentimes, for part-time and temporary employees, the staffing agency will also take on payroll and benefits responsibilities. The set hourly rate for the agency is often lower than what you would be paying out to the employee. Not only will you not hire more help than you need, but you will be able to save money on payroll and benefits as well.
