How Do You Know You’ve Partnered With the Right Staffing Firm?

PartnershipMany staffing firms can “get the job done.”  Some provide consistently good results.  But choosing the right staffing firm for you and your company can be a little trickier.

How do you know when you’ve found the right staffing firm for you?  Watch for these clues:

  1. They’re racking up the (client-based) awards. Accolades like Inavero’s Best of Staffing® Client Award tell you that a staffing firm cares about the companies it serves. How?  Awards like these are based solely on client recommendations and votes.  In other words, this staffing firm’s clients went out of their way to recommend their recruiter for the award.  If the staffing firm has won the confidence of other employers in your area, chances are good they’re worth your trust.
  2. They’re mindful of potential liabilities. Employment and labor law are complex fields that are constantly changing. While consulting your company’s lawyer is always critical for key legal issues, a staffing firm with a good working knowledge of current employment laws can take steps to help you avoid exposure to potential liabilities.  Look for a staffing firm that keeps the boundaries of the law in mind and takes active steps to help you play within those rules.
  3. They want to know more. Many employers want to simply throw a job description at their staffing firm and hope for the best. While this is one way to approach the challenge of finding great talent, it isn’t the most effective.  And the best staffing firms know it.  The right staffing partner for your company will want to know more about your company, its position in the industry and its internal culture – and will use this information to recommend candidates who not only have the skills and experience to excel, but who also offer the right personality and cultural “fit” to support your company’s goals and make a productive addition to your current team.

Partnering with a recruiting firm can help your company find, interview and hire the talent critical to your business’s success. If you are looking to work with a recruiting firm that has a proven track record of success, consider partnering with TERRA Staffing Group.
