Some people might see ads for staffing agency assistance all over their cities and states and think the idea of someone hiring people or finding a job for you is odd. But what people might not know is working with a staffing agency like AurStaff has tons of advantages and could give you a competitive edge. Over the last few years, I’ve come across some key benefits to working with a staffing agency—for both employers and those job searching—that hopefully gives a sneak peek of the staffing world.
Benefits of Working with a Staffing Agency in Your Job Search
The most common benefit I’ve noticed in my time in the staffing industry, and many people state to me they enjoy, is the large number of selections that may be available to them for completing our relatively streamlined membership process. We work with a number of companies and are able to present qualified candidates a multitude of industries and job titles. This may open a door that some job seekers would never think even existed for them.
Running off the first point, our selection numbers and hiring process allow for those candidates in good standing to continue that work and enjoy full employment after a short time with the company they are placed at. For those who may decide the job isn’t the right fit, we allow movement with no harm to their standing with us and can provide them with other opportunities and areas they can grow in.
Finally, the great thing about working with a staffing agency is that it allows employees to try new things and not be punished for it; it can be a great first step for someone looking to gain knowledge in an area or trying to see if it would be a fit for them long term. Gaining a multitude of skills and experience is something any candidate should strive for, and if that can be offered in a more supportive and safer environment where the job search doesn’t need to begin from scratch, this can be a big plus for them.
Benefits of Working with a Staffing Agency in Your Talent Search
For employers, the benefits of working with a staffing agency can make a lot of sense. They provide specialized job searches in industries they know well and can source candidates with much more focus than many companies could on their own.
Staffing agencies can also focus their power on filling all types of roles, allowing for company leaders to take one more item off their too full plate and see quick turn arounds for job fulfillment. Best of all the hiring process doesn’t need to change at all as we follow whatever process the company sets forward. Quicker turn around without any loss of quality cannot be overlooked by anyone.
For company’s requiring temporary workers, we also provide an invaluable service as we have people ready to help for a variety of jobs and can meet day-of demands as well as individual events or projects. This saves the employer valuable time and HR resources by not having to handle onboarding or payroll.
There are a lot of good reasons outside of the few above to seek help from a staffing agency like AurStaff next time you have an open opportunity or may be looking for that next step in your career! And hopefully next time you hear a radio ad or drive by a building you won’t hesitate to give us a call.
