But did you know that outsourcing your hiring can help your business grow? Many human resources tasks can be outsourced so that company employees who might otherwise have to take the time or develop the expertise to do them can focus on tasks that generate revenue or cut costs.
Here’s the top 3 ways outsourcing can help your business grow.
1) Developing job descriptions
Developing job descriptions can be a very time-consuming task, especially if the job requirements are new or need to be updated. Writing job descriptions can be especially worrisome for new managers. Staffing agencies are experienced and proficient in writing job descriptions that will appeal to candidates.
2) Screening resumes and setting up interviews
Once job descriptions are posted, resumes start to come in! Screening these can also be a time-consuming process. Busy managers may have to winnow a pile of resumes down to the candidates most likely to fit the job requirements. Or, on the other hand, they may also find that they need to reach deeper into the applicant pool to find qualified workers. In either case, outsourcing the function can help make the process more productive for everyone concerned.
A staffing agency can also set up interviews, making sure that the times are convenient for all the hiring managers involved.
3) Screening applicants
One of the ways outsourcing can most help your business grow is to screen applicants, performing background checks and calling references.
Why? Because finding out that a candidate who seems qualified to do the job actually isn’t can’t cost your both time and money. Unfortunately, some job applicants are sometimes less than truthful on their applications. Or they may be unreliable, constantly late. Or they may have a poor work ethic.
You need to find out if there are any issues with an applicant before making a hire. Otherwise, you may have to go through the entire time-consuming and expensive process of hiring soon, if the person proves unable to do the job, or not satisfactory in other ways. You may spend time and money hiring someone who will not make it past the first 3 months of employment.
Making sure your employees are professionally vetted before they start work is a good investment toward making your business grow.
