What to Look For When Hiring a Staffing Agency

The Better Together Difference

Regardless of the industry, the one commonality all businesses have is wanting to ensure they have a strong workforce in place heading into the new year. To be successful in any business you need a team of top-notch employees to get the job done.

Whether you’re looking to hire temporary employees to meet new demands or long-term employees to build your growing empire, a staffing agency can be the greatest asset a company can have.

That being said, not all staffing agencies are one in the same. It’s important that you perform your due diligence when choosing a staffing firm to partner alongside. Here are a few things to look for in a quality staffing agency and what makes The Better Together Group stand out from the rest.

Setting the Bar High

Look for an agency who sets the hiring bar high, and then catapults over it.

The Better Together Group has higher hiring standards than most agencies which means they actually reject more candidates than they onboard.

Why is this crucial for companies? Finding great employees is a marathon for most businesses, and having a skilled team of staffing experts take the necessary time to pre-screen potential candidates on your behalf will result in higher quality hires, in a lot less time.

A highly trained recruitment expert has unique capabilities for narrowing in on high quality talent in a sea of candidates very efficiently. They will not only know how to find willing workers for your industry, but they will also be able to find GOOD, willing workers who are the right fit for the role.

Partnering with a staffing firm who has been around the block many times and has the endurance to run the race for you will ensure that a quality employee is onboarded, in a timely fashion as we move further into 2021.

Providing a Customized Experience

A staffing agency’s job is to meet the expectations and needs of their customer. This is done by connecting them with the top-level talents specific to their industries, companies and specific jobs needs!

The Better Together Group believes that each client should have a customized, and unique hiring experience. Taking the time to handle each new hire on an individual basis, will greatly increase the success rate of employee placement. Our agencies can not only find candidates who match your job description, but also pick out transferrable skills from resumes that they know your business will benefit from and evaluate characteristics from candidates who will match your company culture.

Why should the hiring process be customized? There is no one size fits all solution when it comes to hiring a quality employee. Even the best employees aren’t right for every position. We make sure that you get exactly what you need, which is a qualified candidate who aligns perfectly with your company’s vision and goals.

When you hire a recruitment specialist, they become an extension of your HR team. In our 75 combined years in the business of hiring, we recognize that proper communication is key in making sure your experience is a successful one. It’s important that we get to know what your expectations are so we can find the perfect candidate for you.

Creating a Positive Candidate Experience

A staffing agency works for their client. But, building a relationship with potential candidates also plays a major role in the hiring process. If a staffing firm places value on nurturing top-level candidates, you can be sure they have a well-stocked talent pool of pre-screened, skilled workers who are ready to jump in with both feet.

Why take a candidate-focused approach? Unlike many staffing agencies who view each potential hire as statistics on paper, The Better Together Group focuses on each candidate’s individuality. With an in-depth screening process, we are able to dig deep to find out each candidate’s strengths and weaknesses are, and ultimately what they WANT to be doing for work.

Part of providing a positive candidate experience, is also finding areas candidates excel in. When we come across an exceptional resume featuring a unique set of skills, we also have to ability to skill market that candidate, to find them the perfect employer match. This is a highly valuable service, mutually beneficial for the candidate and the company.

It’s been our experience, that when an employee is being valued in their role, feels listened to and heard, they are more likely to be loyal, and dedicated.

Bottom line…

We make it our mission to deliver GOOD jobs for GOOD people. And that’s the Better Together Difference.
