Seattle’s employment scene is currently one of the toughest in the nation for employers. Finding the right people has become a real challenge – especially when what you need is someone with specialized experience who wants to take a temporary position during a big project or a “rush” season.
To improve your odds of finding great temporary staff, first find a great temporary staffing firm.
Here are three things to look for:
- Multiple Locations. Communication with your staffing partner and access to a deep pool of talent is essential. Staffing firms with multiple locations offer the best of both worlds: convenient places to drop in and talk to your recruiter, and access to a deeper pool of qualified individuals who are willing to work on a temporary or temp-to-perm basis to get the job done.
- Depth of Experience. A comprehensive understanding of your industry is vital when selecting a recruiting partner. But so is knowledge in fields that are closely related to or that support your primary business focus. Having background and a proven track record in multiple areas means your staffing firm gathers more information, develops a broader view, and can propose more creative and flexible solutions to your biggest staffing problems.
- Access to Top Talent. Every staffing firm is only as good as the people it places, and the best staffing partners know it. That’s why top staffing firms work hard not only to find the right people, but to showcase their abilities for clients who are looking for the right temporary talent. At TERRA Staffing, we do this with our “Talent Showcase” in which we regularly highlight a small sampling of the highly-skilled individuals we help place.
By partnering with a reputable temporary staffing firm, you will position your company to achieve the best hiring success.
