system-1527687_640.pngHiring the right employees for your company can be very time consuming and extremely challenging with the current talent shortage in South Africa. However, to be successful and competitive in today’s business environment recruiting top employees should be a priority in every business.   

There are several important benefits to companies when they partner with a reputable recruitment firm for their hiring needs:

The number one commodity that you can’t buy, produces, re-create or develop. The reality is the hiring process can be very time consuming with having to sift through hundreds of applications to try and find the best suited candidates. Screening, interviewing and relevant reference and qualifications checks all take up precious productive time from staff that need to focus on crucial business activities. Specialist recruitment companies can help you avoid mistakes in the hiring process by providing an objective investigation of a candidate and can save you time by screening candidates against your requirements and doing the necessary qualification, credit and work history checks.

Specialist recruitment agencies often have a level of expertise that far exceeds some employers’ human resources departments. They not only understand the industry but also have in-depth knowledge of candidates and skills available in the market. Sometimes the best talent is not necessarily the ones on job boards looking for new positions. Identifying and approaching this hidden talent is not an easy task, but that’s what trained recruiters do every day.

Specialist recruiters work on a daily basis with top talent and develop deep networks of active and passive candidates. This allows recruiters to be able to source for the right candidates much faster and find top qualified people quicker. Recruitment agencies have many networks, each consultant has the ability to identify, source, attract and validate candidates in a fraction of the time it would take a client. Connecting you to people with a range of skills and experience much quicker than any internal team would be able to do. 

Specialist recruitment agencies worth their salt are well-known in their focus areas which encourages high-calibre candidates to contact them. This ensures a continuous pool of relevant talent. A reputable recruitment agency will want to make sure that the person they recommend for the position is the best person for the job. They will therefore be meticulous in their selection process and will only choose candidates that they feel will do the job to the best of their ability. This gives employers the security that the candidate should be a good fit for the company.

Hiring a new employee is a crucially important part of business, although often very time consuming. When you have a busy company and an open position within it, the task of finding your new employee may feel like an impossible task. Partnering with a credible specialist recruitment company offers numerous benefits and will ensure you find the right candidate much quicker.
