Companies are remiss if they go it alone in trying to recruit good people. Most organizations are unable to fulfill all of their own needs for full-time employees and temporary help. And that is okay, as hiring is not their core business. This is the staffing industry is a vital contributor.
Staffing and recruitment companies must do a better job of delivering services that allow their customers to always hire someone today or acquire contract talent in an instant. Almost every customer needed someone yesterday, so it makes little sense to make them wait until tomorrow.
Recruiting professionals must also deliver this same level of service to themselves. It is baffling that they often do a better job of fulfilling their customers’ needs for talent than they do for their own open seats.
Effective hiring is never done alone. It is done with accuracy, precision and speed. It is this last element, in particular, that needs quite a bit of attention.
