Keeping costs down is important in any business. Staffing your organization can add up to be expensive.
Costs add up as well. Human resources departments and hiring managers in your company need to take time to write job descriptions, post jobs, sift through applications, interview and more. That’s time they aren’t spending on other productive work.
And if a new hire doesn’t work out, the cost to let them go and hire replacement workers can be even greater.
How do you reduce those costs? Partnering with a staffing company can help you keep costs down.
Staffing companies are experts at developing job descriptions and reviewing applications. They can help you decide how to advertise for open positions and who to bring in to interview.
Interviewing can be a lengthy and time-consuming process. Let a staffing company screen the applicants, so that only the best prospective employees are interviewed. That’s the most cost-effective use of everyone’s time.
To find the best workers, and to pinpoint people who will work out over the long term, it’s important to screen them. That means performing drug and other screenings and calling references to see what their performance and work ethic is like. This can be very time-consuming. Staffing companies are pros in performing all kinds of screenings. Let them do this to maximize the productivity of your human resources people and hiring managers.
Recruiting Temporary Workers to Reduce Costs
Temporary workers are another way to reduce costs. If your company has seasonal ebb and flow, it can cost you heavily to bring on full-time workers in one month that you may not need the next month. You are paying their salaries and may have to pay them severance to lay them off.
You can solve this problem by hiring temporary workers. If you need many workers in one month but not the next, you can tailor the number of workers by needs, without any obligation to keep them on and pay salaries or severance.
Plus, if temporary employees show themselves to be good workers, you have the option to hire them as permanent employees. Your costs for recruiting and interviewing go way down as a result.
