The Pros of Using a Staffing Agency

What are the benefits of working with a recruiting agency?


As employers increasingly rely on part-time or temporary workers to cover their workforce shortages, staffing agencies have become valuable resources for swiftly and efficiently locating talent. Here are a few of the numerous advantages that the correct staffing agency may provide your business.


  • Rapid Recruiting

The labor market has changed significantly over the last few years, and the recruiting process is now more time-consuming and difficult than in prior decades. Working with an employment firm expedites and simplifies the process.

Matthew Rowles, senior manager of talent procurement operations at Coca-Cola Consolidated, stated, “Finding great talent is becoming more difficult, and it takes managers a great deal of time to review résumés and carry out interviews while still being accountable for their day-to-day operations.” “Relying on a reliable recruiting agency can save both money and time. A staffing agency can screen and qualify applicants to ensure the hiring manager continues interviewing qualified candidates.

  • Decreased Group Duties

One of the benefits of using a staffing firm instead of designating hiring duties to a team member is that it allows that individual to focus on crucial role-specific responsibilities. A staffing agency can concentrate on the recruiting process, as that is its primary function. However, if your employees are required to devote a portion of their job time to reviewing and interviewing multiple candidates, it may disrupt their daily routine and reduce their productivity. A staffing agency resolves this issue.

  • Flexibility

AJ Brustein, a co-founder of the on-demand staffing platform Wonolo, claims that many businesses are delaying hiring full-time workers for various reasons. The focus on efficient operations is largely to blame.

Brustein says, “Companies are trying to increase efficiency by only hiring workers when they’re required.” “They must find ways to make sure every dollar they spend benefits the company,”. Temporary staffing allows them to have employees only when needed, and those employees are productive.

Jason Leverant, president and chief operating officer of the national employment franchise AtWork Group, stated that businesses have realised the value of a flexible workforce that can be dynamically amended to meet their ongoing hiring requirements.

“The flexibility of using a staffing agency became the driving force behind the push to hire a workforce that can adapt to the flow of a client’s business needs,” Leverant explained.

  • Specialist Recruitment

According to Monster’s Future of Work Report 2022, more than nine out of ten employers struggle to fill positions because of a skills imbalance. A specialised employment agency may make the process easier if you’re seeking to hire a worker with specialised skills.

For instance, some agencies are solely devoted to recruiting professionals in the technology or legal sectors. They have the relationships, resources, and collections of passive candidates actively seeking fresh possibilities, allowing them to find the ideal candidate for your position. In addition, their in-depth understanding of region-specific ranges of wages and market history and their ability to identify red flags throughout the screening process may save you money over time.

  • Reduced Legal Risks

Many legal obligations are associated with being an employer, such as paying specific taxes, providing health insurance, and abiding by labour laws. Financial and operational hazards are associated with employing employees, particularly if a new hire must be terminated or departs unexpectedly. If you employ a staffing agency, many of these risks are assumed by the agency.

What are the drawbacks of utilizing a recruiting agency?

Although there are numerous advantages of working with a staffing agency to simplify and expedite the employment process, it is essential to be mindful of the possible hazards and disadvantages.

  • Additional Employment Expenses

There is no way to avoid it: The average annual salary fee when employing a staffing agency ranges from 15% to 25%, based on the sector and other variables. In contrast, according to research conducted by Zippia, an in-house HR staff can increase a company’s hiring expenses by more than 50 per cent when annual salaries are considered. It is also important to consider the productivity, labour, and resource costs associated with internal hiring. Each company must determine which disadvantage is the most significant.

  • Wide Cultural Division

While a competent staffing agency takes the time to learn about your company and its values, it likely lacks a deeper understanding of your company’s culture. This means that, despite possessing pertinent skills and experiences, the proposed candidates may conflict with the remainder of your team in terms of ethics and attitude. But this can be reduced by adding an internal culture assessment procedure to the agency’s verification procedures.

  • Decreased Team Cohesion

Traditionally, the internal recruiting process consists of multiple stages of interviews performed by various team members. This method enables the staff to become acquainted with potential employees and form a connection with them before they are hired. Using a staffing agency to predominantly fill the position of an interviewer means that new hires will often be strangers and require additional time to develop relationships. This disadvantage can be exacerbated when temporary workers, who may be unjustly perceived as lesser than permanent employees, are involved.

  • Reputational Repercussions

Creating a stellar internal recruiting procedure can strengthen your company’s reputation among potential and current staff members and become a vital component of your company’s culture. Even if an applicant is not offered a position, they can still share what they liked with your organisation. If you choose to utilise a staffing agency, however, you rely on its proven brand, repute, and professionalism. Consequently, if a prospective has a negative interaction during the recruiting process with the agency, it can negatively affect your own company.
