If you’ve ever hired new employees, you know how small the hiring pool can be. Traditional hiring methods shrink the pool even further, extending the hiring process and making it difficult to find the right person. Staffing agencies use a diverse set of strategies that casts a much larger net for attracting the best talent. Here’s how Symphony Placements finds the best candidates for your open positions.
The Baby Boomer generation is in the process of retiring. They were the largest generation so far to dominate the hiring pool; but recent research shows that Millennials, who are about to hit the mid-career level, have taken over the ranks as the largest hiring pool in history. This is great news for companies looking to hire fresh talent. But, companies are going to have to take a different approach when hiring Millennials, as their wants and needs are quite different from their predecessors.
While staffing agencies are often synonymous with temporary job placement, many companies rely on them for more than temp work. A lot of companies use staffing services to hire temporary employees for the same reason job-seekers themselves do. Each party benefits from using staffing companies; employers and job seekers get to “try” each other out to make sure company and employee needs align.
