Are you a company seeking to hire top talent and a candidate who will thrive in your company culture?
Many times, the direct hire opportunity is the most attractive for job seekers, as it allows them to immediately join your organization and feel a greater sense of “inclusion.” Sourcing the right candidate may sound like a simple feat to pull off, but it can be the most frustrating and time-consuming for the employer.
As mentioned above, filling a direct hire position with the right company is a huge time bandit. This path also requires extensive due diligence to be performed to get to the right person for the job. When you have decided to hire directly, you can set up an internal probationary period to ensure the candidate is everything as represented.
If you’re like most executives, you need to focus on your core business, and while you need to fill that vacant position ASAP, you can’t necessarily afford the time required to do all that it takes to be successful in your candidate search.
It may be time to consider partnering with a professional staffing solutions agency.
A qualified company can be invaluable when endeavoring to fill that crucial position, expeditiously.
When searching for a staffing company, it’s essential to know their process upfront, to ensure you’re comfortable and feel confident that they:
- Take the time to learn about your organization and company culture
- Fully understand the role(s) to be filled
- Experienced at developing a candidate profile
Direct hire staffing removes the burden of managing the in-depth process of vetting the multitude of incoming resumes. The right agency will:
Collect and review all of the potential resumes
Interview individuals and develop a qualified short-list
Present the short-list of qualified and prescreened candidates for the employer to interview, which will include the recruiter’s insight about the potential employee
You will also want to inquire regarding the agency’s guarantee should the employee, for some reason, not be a good fit once they begin working with your company.
One of the best elements to direct hire staffing is that the right staffing partner will have the experience to attract “passive candidates” who aren’t necessarily looking for a new job as they’re currently employed. The agency will also have extensive relationships with candidates that align with the needs of your company.
Behind the scenes, there is a great deal of due diligence performed by the staffing partner; however, to the employer, they reap the rewards with minimal stress.
You’ve selected the best person to join your company, and with a direct-hire, you can now onboard that individual directly to your payroll. Your new hire will feel like a part of your team from day one, which helps increase morale and the probability of retention.
Remember, when seeking to partner with any recruiting firm, it’s necessary to do your research before making a final decision.
