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.
