Knowing that having the right hire helps you surpass the competition, there is no reason you shouldn’t be using a staffing firm. Staffing firms help you get ahead of the game by finding high quality candidates faster than your competition can. Similar to Tinder, a dating app, staffing firms want to swipe left on potential bad hires and provide you with only the best candidates. They are able to dive deep into the candidate pool and market to find fitting candidates, who may be passed over due to lack of information on a resume. Here is an article about how staffing firms can help not only your company but your clients as well. A staffing firm can broaden your hiring horizon and even potentially take care of administrative duties for certain hires, saving you time and resources in the process.

Not only that, they can lower costs by allowing your company’s HR team to focus your own employees. By using a staffing firm, you are giving yourself the advantage to beat your competitors.

Considering the benefits of a general staffing firm, you can only imagine all of the benefits of a niche staffing firm. The advantages of a specialized staffing firm includes:

  • Understanding your world. For example, Engenium Staffing understands that coding language alone is not enough to screen a software engineer.
  • Knowing the acronyms used on a daily basis in your field. For example, Engenium Staffing specializes in simulation uses acronyms such as HLA, DIS, and LVC-IA on an everyday basis.
  • Specialized staffing firms have extensive knowledge about specific industries. They know the average salaries, the marketplace, and even your clients. They understand the industry you’re in.
  • Ability to find cultural fits and test personality aptitude. For example, Engenium Staffing functions in the simulation industry meaning we are well versed in culture and can find employees that fit your culture.
  • They have an efficient and thorough screening and interview process to ensure they are putting the best candidates forward.
  • Higher probability of a successful and long hire due to the recruitment process.
