How A Staffing Agency Can Increase Profitability

Some employers in the Construction, Energy, Safety, Maritime, and Oil & Gas sectors have been leery of enlisting a staffing agency to galvanize their talent acquisition strategy. They believe their in-house capabilities are sufficient to attract and retain the best candidates in the field. They also think that the money spent to engage a staffing company can be better allotted elsewhere. 

The truth is that there is no guarantee that internal HR departments can replicate the success of staffing agencies. Not only is it difficult to say that they can find matching candidates, but overhead costs can eventually exceed the cost of hiring a staffing agency. 

Companies in the Construction, Energy, Safety, Maritime, and Oil & Gas sectors looking to remain profitable should seriously consider staffing solutions. Better candidates, time saved, faster hires, and reduced turnover all contribute to long-term profitability. 

Wide Effect possesses over 60 years of experience recruiting top talent in the Construction, Energy, Safety, Maritime, and Oil & Gas sectors.

What A Staffing Agency Brings To The Table 

Outsourcing your talent acquisition program to a staffing agency instead of keeping it with your in-house HR department is often a better move for your bottom line. 
Here are 4 ways in which a staffing agency helps you save and generate money:

Better Candidates

A specialized staffing agency knows the ins and outs of your sector as much as you do. The difference is that it knows the candidates—both active and passive—just as well. This makes staffing agencies uniquely poised to match the right candidates with the specific needs of your company. 

The right candidate is not so much of a unicorn when the staffing agency has connections with every major player in the field. Whenever an employee quits or a new talent breaks into the industry, the agency knows. Its wide network ensures that it has that much higher chance of success in finding the perfect employee for you. 

The long-term success of a company rests almost entirely on the quality of its employees. A staffing agency can build you a team that can take you there.  

Reduced Turnover

Employee retention is an important lever of profitability as periodically hiring and training new workers just to catch up on productivity is incredibly expensive and inefficient. 
When a staffing agency claims it can help you find the best candidates, it is not just referring to their technical experience; it is also looking for a fit with your company’s culture and values. Best-fit employees stay longer at your company than those just looking for a quick buck.

Faster Hires

A staffing agency’s entire purpose is to find the best men or women for the job. This is in stark contrast to your HR department, which has responsibilities beyond talent acquisition. That is why employing a staffing agency often significantly speeds up the hiring process. 

Unlike your HR department, the staffing agency can commit to your hiring needs full-time. It also completes thorough background checks and fills up paperwork in less than half the time it takes for your typical HR department. 

Faster hires minimize gaps in your workflow, allowing you to continuously generate income. 

Time Saved

Imagine doing away with all the resume reviewing, reaching out, and background checks. Relieving your own staff of hiring duties frees up time and resources that can be used for more lucrative ventures. 

In addition to the recruiting process, a staffing agency can save time by handling payroll taxes, Workers' Compensation, and unemployment benefits, too. 

Invest In A Staffing Agency For Long-Term Profitability 

Saving upfront costs by relegating your hiring needs to an in-house program may seem tempting, but bringing in a staffing agency is often the more financially savvy decision in the long run. The latter has the insider knowledge and the industry connections to deliver you reliable and performing candidates in record time. Moreover, candidates procured by a staffing agency are known to stay longer at than those hired in-house. All these benefits lead to increased margins over time.
