What You Should Tell A Staffing Service When Looking For Talent

by Byron Johnston

Your first conversation with the staffing service you are hiring will determine how well recruitment will go. You may simply be looking to fill a position temporarily, or you may wish to fulfill a role permanently. You may be looking for talent that you will grow with. What you tell your staffing service will determine how successful your recruitment efforts will be.

Types of Employment Arrangements

If you would like a temporary or contract employee, you will want to make this known. One commonly requested perk by employees is that the employment arrangements be flexible.

In other cases, you may be hiring a temp worker who may later become a permanent hire. This is a common phenomenon when you believe that you need to hire an employee, and you're not sure if a future spike in the demand for labor will justify it. However, if you intend to hire a permanent employee from the very beginning, you will want to make this clear.

Clarify the Type of Talent You're Looking For

Using explicit details, explain to the staffing agency the talent you're looking for. Then, you will be able to find the specialized skills that you need for a specific project. If you are not sure about the type of staffing that you need, a staffing agency can help you determine this. 

Ask About the Specifics of the Service

Find out about the type of fees charged by the staffing service. Find out if the staffing service will visit your workplace to get a feel for the culture. They will ask about details regarding the positions that need to be filled and will also meet face-to-face with supervisors. 

Ask About How the Employees Are Screened and Tested

Oftentimes, those who are hired by the staffing service must perform aptitude tests. They may also be provided with tutorials on how to perform certain tasks so they are prepared when it is time to start working. Also, the staffing service might perform drug and background tests which allows you to avoid performing these tests yourself.

Tell the Company About Your Goals

Make sure to identify both your short-term and long-term objectives. Once you know exactly what you want, you will be able to communicate this to the staffing firm. For example, you will want to determine the exact number of staffing hours that each position will require to be effective.

Contact a local staffing service to get started.
