Working with a staffing partner can be a great asset to your organization. Staffing partners provide many great benefits to companies. This post will discuss building a relationship with your staffing partner and how it can positively impact your organization.
It’s important to build a long-term relationship with your staffing partner so you can maximize the opportunities available. When you have a relationship, your staffing partner has a better idea of what you’re looking for in candidates and is able to more successfully match qualified candidates to your needs.
Another reason to build a relationship is you’ll be able to have a single point of contact at the firm instead of always working with new people. Having one person who handles all of your staffing needs can help your organization save time and money as they will already have the knowledge of your industry and company.
So, how can you build a relationship with your staffing partner? Start by getting to know who you’re working with. Understand the agency’s skill set and learn about their communication and work style. We can’t stress the importance of communication enough. Make sure the lines of communication are open both ways. You should be clear with your staffing partner on the goals and expectations you have from them, and they should be clear with a plan of action on how they will reach those goals and expectations. If something changes on your end, make sure to tell the staffing partner. You should also provide feedback, so strategies can be adjusted if necessary.
Another way to build your relationship is to stick with one staffing partner. There are many agencies out there, but you should be working with the one who is best for you. Plus, when you consolidate your staffing needs, your staffing partner might be more loyal to your business and its needs.
Remember, it takes time to build a great relationship. For more information on building a relationship with your staffing partner, contact one of our recruiters today.
