Employee Recruitment: Building a Great Team
Mistakes in employee recruiting are some of the most expensive errors a business can make. Studies have shown that the cost of hiring the wrong employee can equal up to three times the yearly salary for the position itself. Take your employee recruitment to the next level by working with National PEO. Our PEO recruiting services will make your small business more competitive in today’s marketplace.
Recruiting Employees: Why You Have to Get It Right
A bad hire inevitably becomes a costly business expense. When businesses hire someone who doesn’t work out, they have to make time for recruiting employees, re-advertising the position, interviewing other people, and training a suitable replacement.
In addition to finding someone new, everyone in the company faces a loss in productivity when businesses bring in a bad hire. Employers also deal with an increase in unemployment insurance costs after separating the employee who wasn’t a good fit.
Furthermore, these expenses don’t even take into account the time and money — and the crushing stress — that come with performance managing a bad hire out of the company. Getting the right people into the right positions is one of the smartest commitments any business can make. In fact, the right people form the heart and soul of any business operation.
Imagine a Company Full of Better Workers
Your employees make the difference between succeeding or failing in business. Working with a human resource professional will improve the employee recruiting process by targeting honest and reliable workers for your business. When you have a great staff, everyone benefits. Imagine a workday filled with:
Better customer service. When you work with professional recruiters, your business is staffed by employees who want to be there. They take pride in delivering for your customers. In fact, they consider it a badge of honor to resolve customer problems the first time. When you have great employees, they make your customers want to return again and again.
Real teamwork. Instead of pushing their own agendas, your staff pulls together to make things happen. Morale improves, people get credit for great ideas, and synergy makes your business more than the sum of its parts.
Lower rates of absenteeism. Imagine going through your day with fewer callouts and unexplained absences. When you create a schedule, you’ll know that you can rely on your employees.
Less employee turnover. Your new hires are matched with the right position for their skill sets, and they thrive while working in your company. Instead of constantly losing employees and having to train new hires, you have a crew that knows your business inside and out.
Incredible work ethic. Instead of dealing with people who just want to collect a paycheck, you have a staff that believes in your company mission. They work as though they own a piece of your business. They go the extra mile to make the company successful.
Talent for your future. Instead of just hiring an employee for an available position, recruiting companies hire with succession planning in mind. National PEO helps you find employees that execute today’s jobs but also possess the skills to move up in your company.
How Recruiting Companies Can Help
National PEO delivers professional recruiting services to businesses of all sizes. We advertise the job, find great candidates, and help them transition into the company. When you let us take over your recruiting operations, we’ll find the best available people to help your business grow. Our services include:
Advertising. We advertise positions according to labor laws, but we also seek out recruits who might not see the advertisement. We browse through LinkedIn, job search sites, and other resources, and we retain a PEO recruiting database of the best and brightest candidates.
Resume evaluation. Some resumes contain more fiction than truth. National PEO’s human resource professionals have the know-how to read between the lines of what’s actually written. We sort through piles of resumes to find candidates with proven track records for success.
Interviewing. Business owners perform interviews once in a while. Although they know what their business needs, they don’t always know which questions to ask. National PEO is staffed by human resource professionals who know how to interview potential employees. Our employee recruitment experts have the experience to evaluate a wide range of candidates.
Reference checks. Professional recruiters conduct employee reference checks in compliance with complicated employment laws. Better yet, they search through available databases to which many business owners seldom have access.
Background checks. In addition to talking to past employers, we scour potential candidates for red flags that might hurt your business. We use their Social Security numbers and other important information to conduct criminal background checks, verify their educational achievements, and ensure that you’re getting an honest new hire.
Onboarding. Once you’ve hired someone, we take care of onboarding paperwork, including I-9s and other documentation. You concentrate on training your future workforce instead of filling out endless stacks of forms.
Getting Past Your Hesitations About Professional Recruiters
Many business owners hesitate to outsource recruiting and other HR functions. Employers worry that the cost of professional employee recruiting could exhaust profit margins that are already too thin.
In reality, many businesses quickly recover the original investment that they make when they outsource recruiting operations. They stop losing a great deal of money due to mishandling of HR issues, and they save a significant amount of money by retaining talented, dependable employees.
By turning over employee recruiting to National PEO, you’ll get help handling all applications, skill appraisals, interviews, and reference checks. Our recruiters find the best available candidates. Then, they make the ultimate recommendation to your managers after a thorough vetting process.
The HR professionals at National PEO work with your managers to improve overall employee selection and to enhance workforce quality. Their efforts will lower your turnover rates to the bare minimum, letting you focus on growth instead of on training and retraining employees for the same positions.

National PEO works with your company in either a PEO or ASO relationship, and each arrangement has different benefits for your company:
PEO. If you hire us as a professional employer organization, National PEO takes all of your human resources functions, including recruiting, off of your plate. We become co-employers, taking care of your human resources while you maintain control over all other operational functions. PEO recruiting relationships mean that we do more work for your organization. They also minimize your risk and create a deeper, more meaningful partnership.
ASO. In an administrative services organization relationship, you maintain control over hiring and other HR functions. In addition to maintaining control, you also retain an element of risk. If this suits you, we can provide support and assistance with many routine tasks. It means less time spent on back office paperwork and more time devoted to running your company.
