5 WAYS OUTSOURCING RECRUITING COULD BENEFIT YOUR BUSINESS

In today’s global economy, it’s more important than ever that you recruit the right people to work in your company. Successful recruiting relies more and more on keeping up with the latest changes in technology and the ever-evolving expectations today’s employees bring to the workplace. Do you know where to find the best candidates for open positions at your company? Do you have the time to spend building relationships with the most qualified job candidates? Do you know what questions to ask to make sure your favorite candidate is the best one for the job?

Save time and money when you outsource recruiting with us. We can help you find the right candidates while letting you spend more of your own time focusing on your business. You’ll benefit from reduced turnover rates, lower costs, faster growth and a scalable recruiting platform that lets your entire staff focus on doing their own jobs well.

Cut Costs

Reducing costs is one of the primary reasons many small to mid-size companies outsource recruiting. You’ll save the money you’d spend on hiring a full-time recruiter or an entire recruiting staff, but there’s much more to it than that.

When you outsource recruiting, your company will no longer have to eat the costs of a high turnover rate or cope with the consequences of positions remaining open for long periods of time. The professional recruiting services you can get when you contract with a PEO allow you to fill the gaps in your current recruiting process, freeing up resources that you and your staff can use to get back to the basics of running the company.

Hire Better Candidates

Great candidates are hard to find, even in slow economic times. Increase your chances of finding and hiring the best candidates when you use a PEO for recruiting services. Professional recruiters make it their business to streamline the recruiting process using every resource at their disposal, from online job boards and social media to old-fashioned job fairs. Reach more candidates, including many options you may not have been able to find on your own, and fill positions faster and more efficiently.

Scale Your Recruitment Needs Easily

Let’s say you’re in an industry that experiences seasonal spikes and needs to recruit temporary staff to meet your company’s additional needs at specific times of the year. Outsourcing your recruitment processes makes it easier to quickly find the extra help you need when you need it. That way your permanent staff can continue concentrating on doing their own jobs — no one has to take on extra work, whether it’s to meet the increased productivity goals of the season, or to help in recruiting temporary help. It’s a win-win.

The same goes for periods of longer-lasting growth in your company. Growing your company is fantastic, but it can be hard to recruit the extra help you’ll need to handle the increased workload on your own. Outsource your recruiting and get a dedicated recruiting staff that can keep up with your changing needs over the long term.

Address a High Turnover Rate

High turnover is the bane of any company. It costs money and harms your company’s overall productivity. Customer service suffers when employees don’t stick around long enough to get to know your customers or learn how the company works inside and out. Employee engagement suffers when staff members don’t feel like yours is a company that’s worth putting in effort for — after all, if your company was worth working hard for, why do employees keep leaving?

Outsourcing your recruiting services can address high turnover problems by filling positions with candidates who are better suited for the jobs. Professional recruiters can find you candidates who fit well, not just into their jobs, but into the company culture. As a result, staff members will feel more at home in your company and be willing to stay. You’ll see morale, productivity, engagement and customer service improve.

Make Compliance a Breeze

Are you in compliance with all of the current labor regulations? What about the Affordable Care Act — are you up to speed on what it requires of employers like yourself? Employment laws are a confusing alphabet soup of rules and regulations and it’s next to impossible for business owners to keep up. Don’t let compliance issues keep you up at night — get help from professional recruiters who know the laws and can be trusted to make sure you comply with them. When you contract with a PEO like ours, you’ll even get compliance help with the staff you already have.

Finding and hiring the best candidates is a full-time job all on its own — one that certainly doesn’t leave you much time to devote to your company’s other needs. If you don’t have the resources for a full-time recruitment staff, outsourcing your recruitment is the next best thing. In fact, it might even be better.
