5 reasons Recruitment Agencies should be seen as a strategic partner
1. Develop business solutions
Particularly in high turnover industries, business leaders should continually scan the business landscape for the best talent as well as fill skill shortages. Having a strategic relationship with a recruitment agency can provide a consistent stream of quality qualified candidates in a timely manner based on the (long and short term) needs of the business. People are one of (if not) the most important resource in a business, so developing strategic partnerships and solutions around it is key.
2. Fast access to quality qualified candidates
When there are skills shortages within a business, it can mean delayed timelines and projects and ultimately, potentially lost business. Quality recruitment agencies provide a stable source of quality qualified candidates in a timely manner, significantly speeding up the hiring process allowing business leaders to prioritise other key strategic areas of the business.
3. Market knowledge
By developing long term, strategic partnerships with agencies, leaders can utilise the knowledge and expertise their partners have. Sourcing on a daily basis, recruiters are up-to-date on key market trends including skill supply and demand as well as market rates, empowering business leaders to develop more informed business strategy around their human capital. By developing long term partnerships, it is also conducive of best practice and transparent work from a client’s recruitment partner.
Many companies will be unaware solely managing recruitment internally can limit their ability to recruit quality talent and can be more costly. While recruiting internally is an important channel to find new hires, the benefits utilising an external channel as well as time and resource that can be allocated elsewhere in the business are key reasons why firms partner a recruitment agency. This can be particularly important when looking to consistently fill temporary skill sets or support 1 or 2 specific hires.
5. Access to key in-demand skills
Finding candidates with strategic or niche skillsets will often be a timely and difficult process. With talent shortages potentially restricting business growth, its important businesses have access to skills required as fast as possible. Partnering a company with a proven track record for strategic and/or niche talent placement is an important step in combating this growing business challenge.
