If you’re looking to partner with a staffing firm to help your company find and retain new talent and employees, we understand that choosing one can be a difficult choice.
After all, the American Staffing Association estimates there are almost 35,000 temporary and contract staffing offices in the United States, with over 3,000 of them in the state of Texas alone.
How can you possibly know which staffing firm is right for you? Here are four ways you can be sure you partner with the right staffing agency.
How to Choose the Right Staffing Company
1. Find a Company with a Great Reputation
The first thing you can do is check online reviews on Google, Facebook, Indeed, or GlassDoor. Naturally, the more positive reviews, the better.
Next, make sure you are looking for a company that is a member of the American Staffing Association and the Texas Association of Staffing (or whatever association represents staffing firms in your state). Companies with membership to these organizations are held to higher standards than those without.
Once you’ve found some companies that meet the above requirements, dig deeper in your research. How long has the company been around? What is their company culture?
At Staff Force, we’ve got over 25 years of experience in the staffing industry. As for culture, we are a “hands on” agency that goes above and beyond the call of duty to ensure our clients’ needs are met on a daily basis.
2. Check Up on Hiring Processes
You want to work with a staffing firm that makes sure all employees have proper credentials, background checks, references, and insurance.
At Staff Force, all employees we place are screened with criminal background checks, reference checks, employment history verification, online and in-person skills and experience assessments, and random drug screens.
3. Find Your Niche
If you’re looking for a staffing firm that has a solid grasp of your industry, look into specialized staffing companies. They understand the marketplace and can more easily find exact matches for your open job positions.
Staff Force specializes in temporary, temp-to-hire, and direct hire services for light industrial, skilled trades, administrative and clerical work.
4. Clearly State Your Needs
In addition to hiring experienced, skilled, and safe employees, you want to work with people who will fit in well with your company culture.
The more you can tell us about your wants and needs, the better potential employees we can send your way.
Lay out dress code, work hours and break policies, and anything else you feel will be necessary to further narrow down the search.
