Hiring can be a tough and time-consuming chore. It means writing job postings and deciding where they should be placed, and then reviewing resumes, holding interviews, and choosing the right candidate. It also means following all applicable laws and guidelines, while simultaneously making sure you hire the proper number of people. And not every candidate will work out, draining even more resources. When you need someone with top talent in a specialized field like engineering, the difficulties of finding just the right employee can multiply.
Fortunately, working with a staffing agency can help. With 50 years of experience placing engineering professionals, we know what it takes to find and recruit the employees you need.
Here are a few ways engineering staffing services can take the pressure off you.
Assisting Your Internal HR
Human resources departments have a lot on their plates, especially as businesses work through COVID-19 related issues. They’re fielding concerns from your current team members while trying to keep up with rapidly changing compliance matters. When you partner with a staffing agency, you remove many of the pressures of hiring, allowing them to focus on these ongoing internal matters.
If you’re down a key employee, it doesn’t mean the work can wait. Your current staff is likely stretched thin as they attempt to keep up with their regular responsibilities while covering the open position. They may also be racking up costly overtime hours. Yet the hiring process takes time. A staffing agency can send well-qualified temp workers to fill in the gap, giving your current team members a break.
As you attempt to navigate a path through the pandemic and beyond, your hiring needs may be unclear. You might need some help, but feel reluctant to bring on new permanent employees. Partnering with a staffing agency provides flexibility, as you can bring in contract workers as needed without making a permanent commitment.
Screening and Vetting Workers
Engineering positions require specialized knowledge and skills. Yet with the unemployment rate still sky-high, many job seekers are shotgunning resumes to every job posting they see. Engineering staffing services know how to screen and vet candidates, saving you the trouble of weeding through piles of resumes and presenting you only with candidates who are well-prepared for success.
