So you run a successful business and are ready to hire additional staff. With the economy the way it is you would imagine that this would be a really easy thing to do, but the reality is that even with unemployment hovering close to 9%, the truly talented employees are hard to find. Direct hire services are a great tool to use to locate the best staff.
Staffing is not the area of expertise for most businesses, even large companies with a dedicated HR staff seldom have people who are exclusively involved in staffing. HR usually handles employees once they have already been hired. Very few very large firms have the employee turnover and requisite capital to be able to afford in house staffing specialists and like in any profession to get the best results you need to use the best resources.
Direct hire services are offered by a number of staffing firms, these firms specialize in matching an employee with a job opportunity or employer. To be successful at this they have to ensure that the best employees as well as the best employers come to them regularly and so they will work very hard to ensure that both parties are happy. They often have areas of specialization such as health care or IT, and well entrenched in the networks necessary to tap the best talent. Direct hire services are able to get you access to a pool of pre-screened candidates, so that you do not waste a lot of time going through resumes and interviewing unsuitable candidates. As staffing is the bread and butter at firms that offer direct hire services, they know the trends in the industry as far as salary and other employee expectations are concerned and can help you figure out a workable staffing plan.
Working with a direct hire service helps you save time as well as get the employee who will fit your company the best.
