Has your business decided to take the next steps to find a company to support its staffing and workforce needs? With endless staffing options available in the market, it may seem difficult to select the right provider for your business. Having the right staffing company in your corner can be an important asset for your business. To position your business at an advantage, you must do your due diligence when trying to find "the one". Not sure what to look for or what questions to ask? Here are 5 of the most important factors to consider when selecting a staffing company for your business.
In the staffing industry, doing your time matters. The number of years in business not only displays a company’s experience but also its ability to navigate economical and operational obstacles. For example, a company that has successfully guided its clients through the US housing bubble and 2007-2009 financial crisis indicates future actions through the good, the bad, and the ugly. Before selecting a company to work with for your staffing needs, be sure to understand its tenure as an industry player. Companies with a broader history will be able to show you their strategies through both privilege and adversity.

2. Expertise & Leadership
If you don’t know what to look for, it can be challenging to fill open positions. Businesses opt to work with a staffing provider if they are looking for talent in areas that they are unversed in. It is important to understand the expertise and leadership backing behind any contenders for your hiring requirements. If your open positions require some degree of specialization make sure to partner with a company that is well-versed in that domain and knows the skillsets that go along with it. A true indication of credibility is if a company has well-known companies in its portfolio with successful placements.

3. Staffing vs Workforce Management
The terms staffing and workforce management may seem interchangeable, but each term describes a different degree of service. Staffing is just that – a service that helps your business fill its temporary, contract, contract to hire, project based, or permanent positions. Workforce management encompasses staffing plus more. A workforce management provider will deliver an end to end solution to optimize everything and anything affecting your business’ talent. This may include addressing paint points such as:
- Skills/experience predictions for open positions
- Recruiting and qualifying candidates
- Employee onboarding/ off boarding
- Performance management
- Time and expense management
- Benefits management
- Payroll administration
- Process automation

4. The Process Behind Qualifying Candidates
Everyone says they find qualified candidates, but what’s the actual process behind this? If your business is considering working with a staffing company, you want to confirm that you will get better hires than you would on your own. The purpose of working with a third party for staffing needs is to eliminate the expenses as a result of poor hiring decisions and centralize focus on your core business. As you assess different partners to fulfill your workforce needs, make sure to fully understand their process of finding candidates to match your job requirements.

We use highly specialized recruiters to qualify and connect the right candidates to your opportunities.

5. Employee Engagement & Retention
The truth be told if a staffing company practices what it preaches. If a company cannot retain and engage its employees, how can it possibly do so for your business? Ask the company what processes and initiatives they have in place to engage and retain their internal employees. You want to work with a company that is great at building skillful teams and creating a desirable company culture. If the company has internal employees with long tenure with the company, that is a good indication that it’s a desirable place to work.
|We prioritize employee engagement at RGBSI. We define our delivery initiatives through our PROPEL framework which is an acronym for purposeful work, recognition, opportunities, processes, experience, and leadership. With this framework, we outline the actions items taken to stay in touch with employees. Through our approach, we help clients adopt a lean approach to employee management.|
It is important to carefully consider your options before selecting a staffing company for your business. Partnering with a company for staffing and workforce support can be extremely advantageous for your bottom line. By selecting the right partner, you will retain control over your core business while allowing your partner to oversee all workforce and staffing related processes.
