Top 3 Tips for Choosing the Right Staffing Firm

There are numerous benefits to partnering with a staffing firm, but companies can only take advantage of them if they choose the right firm. Some businesses only turn to a hiring agency when they are in sudden, urgent need, and may go with the first one they find. Planning ahead and establishing a partnership, however, can save your company time and trouble later on.

Here we offer three of the most important things that businesses should do when looking for a staffing agency.

  1. Know thyself. Before looking for a firm, you should understand your own needs and what you want. Do you need a staffing firm that is able to fulfill large volume requests? Do you need an agency that specializes in a particular industry or set of skills, such as IT or office management? Would you prefer a national firm or a local vendor? Knowing what you want ahead of time can aid the decision-making.
  2. Ask the right questions. When you pick a candidate firm and negotiate pricing (and yes, you CAN negotiate!), ask how they calculate the markup and what services are included. Ask the staffing firm about its recruitment process and how thorough they are. If security is an issue, make sure the staffing vendor is bonded to cover theft or damage caused by its workers.
  3. Observe. Not only should you consider the answers to your questions, but how those answers are provided. Any hint of unprofessionalism or lack of courtesy from the staffing firm itself should be a major red flag. Make sure the firm is using up-to-date hiring methods and is active on social media, staying ahead of hiring trends and using all resources available to them. Consider the agency's reputation and how long it has been in business.

Choosing the right staffing firm does not have to be rushed or painful. Learn more about finding the ideal staffing agency and employees by contacting DMVG Staffing today!
