Essential Pros Lets You Help Your Community
Let’s be real – it is not easy to hire new employees. According to industry studies, the average time it takes to hire a new employee can range from one to four months. That’s an incredible amount of time to have a vacancy in your business, not to mention all the time, money, and effort it takes to find the right person for the job. To make matters worse, it’s even hard to retain employees. Then, for companies, they have to start the process all over again.
That’s why businesses, time and again, turn to staffing agencies to help with all their hiring needs. Staffing agencies serve as a middleman between employers and job seekers, and are uniquely adept at matching the right person in the right job. As a result, businesses save a ton of time and money, while at the same time, receiving highly qualified candidates. According to Technology Partners, more than 90 percent of companies now use staffing companies for all their hiring needs.
Top performing staffing agencies do everything it takes to make sure they find the right candidate for your open positions, including checking references, screening resumes, calling references, looking for any gaps in work history, and conducting drug tests. The staffing agencies that go above and beyond will also take the time to get to know job seekers, their goals and desires. When you get to know a potential job candidate as not just a person looking for a job, but someone with career aspirations, you are far more likely to find and avoid issues with retention. Only the best staffing agencies have perfected this process into a craft. And, one major benefit of handing off hiring duties to staffing agencies is freeing up companies to focus on operations and growth, instead of becoming lost in the job hiring process.
The Staffing Agency Industry has Room to Grow
As businesses continue to feel the shakeup of the pandemic, the staffing agency industry has not only bounced back, but also surpassed pre-pandemic figures. According to Statista, the predicted revenue for the global staffing industry was estimated at more than $650 billion in 2022, following two years of continuous growth. In the U.S., the industry was worth a record $177.1 billion in 2021, 12.5% higher than predicted.
“The bounce back in the staffing industry this year highlights the resilience and agility of staffing firms to successfully serve their clients despite challenging and rapidly evolving conditions,” said Timothy Landhuis, SIA’s director of research, North America. “In particular, with job openings currently at historic record highs, the US economy has never needed the staffing industry more than it does now.”
But the staffing industry still has room to grow. The Bureau of Labor Statistics, for instance, recently released a prediction report that found employment is projected to grow 7.7% from 2020 to 2030. That means nearly 12 million Americans will be looking for work in the coming years, making the work of staffing agencies ever more critical to keep the U.S. economy rolling.
