In our ever-changing global economy, recruiting and hiring the right people is a difficult job, but help is at hand from recruitment outsourcing specialists.
Many companies don't have a suitable recruitment infrastructure to meet with increasing demands. Outsourcing all, or part, of your recruitment process saves you money and time and leaves the process to experienced recruitment consultants. It is a cost-effective process which eliminates unnecessary staff for recruiting and extra staff when business peaks. It also reduces the need for and cost of advertising, as the outsourcer takes the responsibility of finding the strongest candidates with the best skills and qualifications for the post.
Whether you're looking for permanent or temporary recruitment outsourcing, the outsourcers invest a lot of time, energy and resources towards screening the top people and pooling them for future vacancies. This reduces the time taken for hiring and helps with staffing deadlines during those peak times. Candidates are sourced globally and have reference and background checks; if necessary, psychometric and behavioural assessments are carried out, and only the cream of the crop go into the candidates' pool.
If a company is expanding or opening a new department, it will need more staff, but in this unsettled financial climate, firing staff can be complicated if it goes wrong. Using an outsourcer means staff are available only when needed, so there are no high turnover costs, productivity has not been interrupted and you get an improved customer service. Unwanted staff members are moved by the outsourcer to other jobs, so the client only pays for what he gets.
Companies with rapid growth or seasonal peaks would prosper by using temporary recruitment outsourcing. The most talented and qualified candidates are interviewed and put into place in a short space of time, so there is no lapse in productivity or shortfalls in staffing, and these staff members can be moved on when the peak has levelled out.
They have the best technology solutions to hand because they use a technology-agnostic approach. This gives them the tools to source candidates from all around the world, approach and engage with them and create a talent pipeline. This makes the process of hiring a lot easier in the future, meaning there are fewer vacant jobs.
The role of human resources has reduced over the past few years. Activities such as payroll, training and recruitment have been provided by agencies and consultancies and more recently the use of recruitment outsourcers. 50% of large companies now outsource all or part of their HR needs. HR does not produce a product, yet it can cost large amounts to be effective, and many organisations would rather focus on core strengths. Lawsuits and compliance with regulations can be a headache, so you can leave it to the outsourcer with their innovative technology and compliance specialists. You can enhance your company's brand by drawing quality talent to your organisation and concentrate on improving performance and productivity.
