An effective hiring process requires expertise. That’s because if you want to hire well, you must knowhow to hire well.
This is exactly why some employers choose to use the services of a staffing agency. By doing so, they’re relying upon the expertise of the agency to help identify and hire the best candidates available for the position.
One of the best ways to know if you’re working with the right staffing agency is if they have a Certified Staffing Professional (CSP) on staff. That’s because a CSP is uniquely trained to know the ins and outs of employment, as well as the intricacies involved in hiring.
CSPs are accredited by the American Staffing Association (ASA). According to the ASA website, its CSP program “features rigorous content focused on employment and labor law at both the federal and state levels. It is the essential credential for staffing professionals, certifying your expertise to work with both employees and clients within the bounds of federal and state laws and regulations.”
As you might imagine, there are many benefits of working with a staffing agency that has Certified Staffing Professionals on staff as opposed to an agency that does not. These benefits include the following:
Those people who are Certified Staffing Professionals are current on the latest and greatest trends, practices, and laws in regards to employment. Company officials may or may not have that same level of knowledge and understanding.
A CSP is in a much better position to provide a greater level of service than somebody who is not a CSP. Because of their study, training, and accumulated knowledge, they can provide advice to company officials who might have a question regarding a particular employment issue. That makes a staffing agency that employs CSPs a more valuable entity.
Company officials have the confidence of knowing that they’re working with people who are dedicated to their profession. After all, earning a CSP designation is NOT easy. Only those who are committed to the industry and their careers have the desire to undertake the training and see it through to its completion.
Because of their dedication and commitment to their profession, CSPs are more likely to become a trusted advisor. Employers want somebody who knows their business, as well as the employment marketplace, and can make helpful recommendations.
We’ve written before about what’s involved when choosing a staffing agency as an employer. Whether or not the agency has a CSP (or multiple CSPs) on staff is definitely another consideration. In fact, it might one of the most important considerations.
Time Staffing is a staffing agency that employs Certified Staffing Professionals. As a result, we have both the expertise and the experience to help your organization find qualified employees for your open positions.
As stated above, an effective hiring process requires expertise. That’s how you hire well . . . over and over again.
There are some job seekers who don’t work with a staffing firm because they believe it will complicate their job search. That is a mistaken assumption. Nothing could be further from the truth.
Working with an experienced staffing firm in your niche can be a great way for you to jump-start your job search, expand your search, and grow your career. That’s because staffing firms don’t complicate things. If you work with the right firm, they actually simplify things.
Below are five ways that working with a staffing firm is easy:
#1—Applying for a job online is free.
Okay, you might have already guessed that was the case. However, it goes beyond being free. Most staffing firms ensure that their application process isn’t complicated and is catered to the job seeker. The firm should be motivated to make the process easy so that more job seekers apply.
#2—You don’t have to apply for a specific job.
This is a common misconception. You can just apply in general to indicate your desire to find a new position. You don’t have to apply for a specific job in order to formally submit your candidacy.
#3—The process is not complicated.
Staffing firms have specialists that can help guide you through the process, so that you don’t feel as though you’re on your own. These specialists know about the positions that are available in your geographical area. All you have to do is follow their lead.
#4—The firm does the work for you.
Well, you’ll have to do work once the staffing firm helps you find a job, but until then, it will shoulder the brunt of the workload. A staffing specialist will set up a phone interview to ascertain your candidacy and then work with you to find a suitable position.
Just like applying online is a free and simple process, so is working with a staffing firm overall. You do not (or at least should not) have to pay a fee to a staffing firm. Its services should be free to those who are searching for work opportunities.
Time Staffing has helped thousands of people find new jobs. We meet all of the criteria listed above, and we have the experience, expertise, and opportunities to help you in your job search.
If you follow the news about the economy, you have likely heard that the unemployment rate has declined by a national average of 8.3% and by 7.7% in Ohio. Ohio Senator Rob Portman (R) has proposed that the federal statistics for unemployment are skewed because the numbers do not take into account the 3-million-person reduction in labor force participation compared to pre-recession levels. Portman indicates that sustained growth is needed to return the job market to full health. Though the recession has slowed, most forecasters agree that they cannot be confident about the areas that will offer the most potential for work until the economy has a chance to catch up. But perhaps it is safe to say that the net employment outlook exhibits promise. There is indeed a brighter horizon ahead for those who wish to find work. Staffing industry experts find that large corporations are actively seeking workers to replace the droves of Baby Boomers reaching retirement age. There is also a need to fill jobs that require specialized skills. A recent press release from the Ohio Bureau of Labor Market Information reported that the manufacturing sector added 17,700 jobs since December. Thatês good news.
