The amount of time, energy, and resources that it takes to hire a new employee is astounding. In fact, research suggests that the time employers spend on the hiring process has doubled over the last decade. Unsurprisingly, this process is a massive source of stress for managers. Health care, in particular, demands a high level of professionalism, and a bad hire could be costly. Are you spending too much of your time and energy looking for new hires? If so, here’s how partnering with a staffing agency can relieve the stress.
A staffing partner will speed up the hiring process
The current job market favors job seekers over employers. This is, in fact, a major factor in why it takes so long to hire new workers (with plenty of options out there, job seekers feel safe to shop around). Since more and more talented employees are seeking work through an employment agency, this is a much faster way to find qualified workers than relying on your own job postings or classified ads.
Speed and cost are directly linked
Recruiting new staff can eat up a major portion of your budget. Most experts agree that this process can cost much more than the annual salary of the person you are replacing. Since every day that you fail to find a replacement is costly, using a recruitment agency to fill your healthcare staffing needs will reduce your overall hiring costs.
Avoiding legal issues associated with hiring
State and federal regulations regarding hiring and employment are growing more and more complex. Since it’s easy to inadvertently violate these laws – and incur a costly fine – it’s best to handle these hiring concerns with expert guidance. In addition to providing access to talented nursing staff, your recruiter will help you stay compliant during the process.
Higher quality recruits
Even after choosing a new hire, it can take a while to be comfortable with your decision. Since reputable staffing companies conduct their own rigorous onboarding process before putting candidates in touch with you, you can feel confident that you’re getting the best of the best.
