Staffing Agency Insurance: Finding the Best Candidates
One of the biggest obstacles recruiters in the staffing industry face is finding the best candidates. With the advances in technology today, it is easier to find more people, but it’s necessary to investigate and ensure that the candidate you are sourcing is truly right for the client and position. Also, the ability to find candidates easier means that recruiting is more competitive than ever before. Here are a few tips to help you with your search.
In a survey done by Boston-based technology company, Bullhorn, 97.3% of respondents revealed that they used LinkedIn in 2012 as part of their candidate search. LinkedIn instantly gives you searchable information about a potential candidate’s job status, job history, skill sets, education, and even their interests.
Emphasize the Benefits
Many potential candidates are unaware that staffing agencies do offer benefit options, making them weary of accepting a position. While the salary for the position being offered might be terrific, it is not always enough to sway a perfect candidate.
Promote the Company Culture
It’s a lot more likely that you will acquire a candidate if they know a little bit about the company and its values. Even when you can’t divulge too much information about the client upfront, chances are if you can share a fact such as how “they are a company that truly cares about its employees”, a candidate will be more likely to accept a position.
