We all know that the main purpose of a recruitment agency is to help job seekers find new roles, and help companies find the ideal candidate for their open positions. Of course, job boards, LinkedIn and other various job-seeking platforms can do the job, but to hire the best talent, you will need a recruitment agency to filter out these candidates and to identify the ones who have the right skills for the job. According to Harvard Business Review, 80% of employee turnover is due to bad hiring decisions, and 45% of bad hires are attributed to a lack of process.
In fact, most business leaders believe that a strong and productive team of employees is the result of a good recruitment process, hence, partnering with a recruitment agency can be highly beneficial, not only to your hiring managers but to your company as a whole. With that in mind, here are 5 benefits of using a recruitment agency:
1. Faster hiring
Using a recruitment agency will save a lot of company time compared to hiring internally. Recruiters collect and assess CVs, check references and filter applicants using the best interview techniques so businesses don't have to. They also have a vast talent pool in their database and a network of connections to leverage, hence higher chances for them to locate people with the right talent. All of this helps shorten your time to hire!
2. Industry expertise
A good recruitment agency will offer specialised recruiters for specific industries. Just like Aurora Talent, we are an industry-specific recruitment agency which hire for hard-to-fill roles in the building materials, power and new energies, construction, technology and oil and gas sectors. Our specialised consultants are experts in the industry, hence offering industry-specific knowledge of market trends, salary levels and the skills required to help your business thrive.
3. Extended reach
Not all the best candidates are actively searching for a new job. Recruitment agencies identify these candidates' ‘passive talent’, as they can take a little longer to find. There is a strong possibility that recruiters know who those people are, how to reach them, and more importantly, know how to persuade them to make a move – another plus point to working with a recruitment agency.
4. High-quality candidates
You will be choosing from high-quality candidates and not applicants. Through the help of a recruitment agency, you will be able to reach candidates who truly are job seekers and who have been pre-selected to meet all the criteria and demands that you have set. You know that with their extensive experience, the presented candidates will be worthy of an interview.
5. They are passionate about your business growth
If you build a relationship with a recruitment agency, they can help strengthen and grow your business. They will go all out to produce compelling job ads to maximise the number of people who apply, as well as work around the clock to meet your hiring needs. At Aurora Talent, our specialised consultants work with reputable companies of all sizes, from local innovative start-ups to globally recognised large companies, to provide specialist talent recruitment and executive search.
