Many hiring managers are opting to partner with a staffing company to outsource their recruiting needs.  According to the American Staffing Association, “During the course of a year, America’s staffing companies hire more than 14 million temporary and contract employees (American Staffing Association, 2015).” Clearly, utilizing a staffing company gives you access to many more potential resources, which can save you time and most importantly, cut expenses.

Getting Back to the Business of Things

Another benefit to outsourcing the process is the elimination of a prolonged hiring experience that some employers face within their companies.

The process of hiring has increased in length since 2010, with the average number of days to complete the hiring process now standing at 22.9 days, according to Dr. Andrew Chamberlain, chief economist from Glassdoor Economic.  What if there was a way to dramatically reduce the days spent on hiring?

Internally, your resources must balance everyday business operations with hiring tasks, significantly drawing out the process, and adding the risk of missing out on the best IT candidates.

Outsourced recruiters are focused only on hiring activities-finding, vetting, and scheduling the best candidates for review, while allowing your resources to focus on their day to day activities.
