As the Chief Operating Officer of an industry award-winning, busy staffing agency now entering its 7th year in operation (!), I understand the challenges most business operations, large and small, face when it comes to hiring the right talent, filling open labor orders, AND meeting critical production goals, customer service metrics, and business SLAs.
Like so many other businesses, if you're currently grappling with the daunting task of filling open job positions, and you're ready to throw in the towel because you just can't seem to get candidates to respond to your job post, call you back, show up for that second interview, show up on day 1, you might be contemplating whether partnering with a staffing agency is the right move.
Let me address some of the most common concerns and objections businesses who have never worked with a staffing agency before typically share with us when they are at this point in the journey, and shed light on why collaborating with us can be the absolute game-changer your company needs.
Cost Concerns: "Isn't it more expensive to use a staffing agency?"
It's a common misconception that hiring a staffing agency is cost-prohibitive. In reality, partnering with us can lead to significant cost savings. Consider the expenses associated with traditional hiring methods – advertising, screening, interviewing, onboarding – the costs add up quickly. We streamline the process, reducing both time and monetary investments. Our expertise ensures that you find the right candidate swiftly, minimizing the impact on your budget. If you have roles that are vacant week over week, ask yourself the cost to your business operation by NOT partnering with KNA, the cost of lost productivity to your team, morale as they have to take on additional workload, mistakes being made due to burnout, increased frustration internally or with external customers due to stress or exhaustion. It’s an expense that more than pays for itself over the benefits that a complete and efficient employee roster brings to your business’ bottom line.
Quality of Candidates: "Will the candidates from a staffing agency meet our standards?"
We take pride in our rigorous screening and vetting process. Our experienced recruiters meticulously evaluate candidates, ensuring they not only meet but exceed your expectations. By partnering with KNA, you gain access to a pool of pre-screened, highly qualified professionals. This not only accelerates the hiring process but guarantees the quality you seek in potential employees.
Time Constraints: "We need to fill positions quickly; can a staffing agency keep up with our pace?"
Time is of the essence, and we understand that. Our specialized focus on recruitment allows us to act swiftly without compromising quality. We have an extensive network of warm candidate pipelines across most major markets in the US, cutting-edge recruitment and candidate communication technology, and industry insights that expedite the hiring process to get the best candidates to you, faster, on Day 1. By leveraging our resources, you can fill those critical positions promptly, ensuring your business operations continue without disruption.
Understanding Our Unique Needs: "Will a staffing agency truly understand our company culture and specific requirements?"
We invest time in comprehensively understanding your company culture, values, and unique requirements. Our tailored approach ensures that we not only meet but exceed your expectations. We believe in fostering long-term partnerships, and to do that, understanding your business inside out is our top priority.
Flexibility: "What if our staffing needs change? Can a staffing agency adapt?"
Flexibility is one of our strengths. Whether you're looking to fill temporary, seasonal, direct hire, or project-based positions, we adapt to your business needs and production goals. Our agility and responsiveness guarantee that we align with your evolving business requirements, providing solutions that grow with you. We can pivot in an instant. You’ll be amazed at how quickly we can get new starts in the door at your business and get you ramped up. Not to mention, what happens if you need to ramp down business operations? We handle the end of assignment phone calls, any unemployment claims, and the optics are better for your business operation because any separated employees were always temporary employees of KNA Solutions from day 1.
In conclusion, partnering with a staffing agency isn't just a recruitment strategy; it's an investment in the success and growth of your business. We bring efficiency, expertise, and a commitment to finding the perfect match for your company. Let us handle the hiring challenges while you focus on what you do best – running and growing your business.
