How can my HR department work side-by-side with a staffing firm?

Are you struggling to find the right talent for your company? By working with a staffing firm like Develative, your HR department can access a larger pool of potential candidates and reduce the time and effort in the hiring process.

Most of the time, companies struggle with the issue of finding the right talent to fill their open positions, which can be difficult due to today's competitive job market, the lack of candidates with the right skills and qualifications, and a prolonged hiring process, leading to high employee turnover.

After meeting with 10 HR directors, we summarize their opinions in this sentence:

"Currently, the two main challenges are the shortage of a diverse pool of IT candidates and the high demand for IT talent. We see companies competing for a limited pool of highly skilled IT professionals, driving up salaries and making it difficult to find and retain top talent."

However, when asked why they don't work with a staffing firm, they simply answer: "We just don't know how to do it. We don't seem to match"

Working with a staffing firm can be an excellent way for your HR department to find the right candidates for open positions. By doing so, your HR department can tap into a larger pool of potential candidates, saving time and resources in the hiring process.

Here's a quick list of the most important points to consider:

1- Clearly define your needs

Clearly define the types of positions you need to fill and any specific qualifications or skills required. This will help the staffing firm understand your needs and find the best candidates.

2- No Radio Silence, Communicate often

Maintain open lines of communication through email, slack, discord, or any other communication tool. This will keep requirements up-to-date and the staffing firm informed of your needs.

3- Resume review and interviews

Have your HR team review resumes and interview candidates before making a hiring decision. This will ensure that the candidates are a good fit for your company and the open position.

4- Provide feedback and iterate

After each review or interview, provide feedback about the candidates. It will help the staffing firm understand your preferences and provide better candidates in the future if a match wasn't found yet.
