Staffing Firms: Bigger Is Not Always Better

Posted by Talent Plus Staffing

Businesses of all types and sizes can benefit from working with a specialized staffing agency. As business conditions change, a staffing firm can help fill open positions with top talent. This lowers your risk of hiring a bad employee, plus opens you up to a wider network of highly qualified candidates. With a fresh set of eyes and greater flexibility, you can ensure that your company receives only the finest candidates.

When choosing a staffing firm, do you go with a small boutique agency or a large, established firm? Advantages exist for both, so you will have to do your research and determine the best fit for your needs. However, it’s important to know that bigger is not always better when it comes to staffing agencies.

If you are considering working with a recruiting firm, here are some benefits to partnering with a small agency.

Fast Response Times

A small staffing agency makes every effort to respond quickly to your needs. This is one of the ways that they set themselves apart from their larger competitors. Not only does this lead to more effective communication between you and your staffing team, but it also means that your positions get filled with the best talent right away.

Customized Solutions

Larger staffing services tend to have a generalized approach they follow, and then they adjust the strategy based on the individual client’s needs. This streamlines operations and allows the firm to run efficiently. With a smaller agency, everything is customized from start to finish. You’ll work with a diverse and experienced team that learns about your business and the types of skills and abilities you’re looking for.

Exceptional Placement Statistics

Small-sized staffing services give each client personalized attention. This results in better placement and retention rates. Talent Plus Staffing is a staffing agency that boasts an 85% fill ratio (the industry standard is 46%) and retention rates of 95%.

Lower Costs

Some smaller recruiting agencies are flexible on pricing. For the lowest rates, look for agencies that are owner-operated, as this means that the owner controls the pricing. Not only can you get a lower cost on your services, but also with higher quality candidates, you get the best value possible.

Long Lasting Relationships

It’s a great feeling when that management position has finally been filled, but what happens if the employee doesn’t work out? Working with a small staffing service, you get attention beyond the recruiting and hiring process. The firm will follow up to see how the employee is working out for you. This is how small staffing firms maintain high placement and retention rates, as they know they are in it for the long haul.

Bottom line: Bigger is not always better when it comes to recruitment agencies. You may find that a smaller executive staffing firm is just as efficient and candidate-worthy as larger firms, yet with better service and long term guidance.
