If you’re in charge of your company’s Recruiting, you know all too well the time-consuming task of sourcing and screening potential hires, providing a positive candidate experience and finding top talent. For many recruiters, there just aren’t enough hours in the day to achieve all the tasks, and if you have other HR obligations on top of recruiting (without a large team), forget about it!
One way to overcome the challenges of limited time and resources is to outsource your recruiting efforts with direct-hire services. For many HR managers, directors and VPs, this can seem risky to trust another company with the important task of recruiting. However, the benefits are too numerous to ignore. Read on, to find out why so many recruiting professionals are turning to a direct-hire provider.
It may seem obvious that cost reduction is one of the main benefits of outsourcing your recruiting function, but did you know that most clients save an average of 65% when turning their recruiting over to an recruitment agency? Between the cost of a new recruiter’s salary, benefits, and training, the investment to hire in-house can become pretty large, especially when looking to build a team. But with an outsourcing provider, adding several recruiters dedicated to your account is easy and cost effective.
Speaking of building a team, one of the top reasons to choose direct-hire is the ability to scale, and fast. A dedicated team of recruiters for your business at a lower cost means more work gets done without having to worry about managing a lot of new people or continuously training. Your outsourcing provider can ramp up a team fast, and they will be dedicated to you as your virtual recruiters, so it’s a win-win.
A big part of what you do is reaching out to people, making meaningful connections and building relationships. But for many recruiters, your reach is limited. An dedicated team can help with that too by doing research, setting up meetings and building your talent pool for when hiring ramps up, letting you spend your time on personal, one-on-one connections.
Lastly, many choose an direct-hire agency that comes with all the tools you need to source, screen and hire. Often times tools like LinkedIn Recruiter, Indeed, Monster and the like can take up half your budget. By outsourcing to an RPO with all of these tools included in the monthly cost, you reduce both your cost and maintenance, getting more bang for your buck.
