Best Practices for Building a Successful Staffing Partnership

Many companies turn to staffing professionals to help them with the hiring process. Hiring a staffing firm makes sense because the firm knows how to find and vet qualified candidates and can deal with the logistics of the complicated hiring process. However, since you’re outsourcing one of the most important functions of your organization – recruiting – you need to make sure your company and your staffing partner have a rock-solid relationship.

So, how can you build a strong relationship and a successful partnership with staffing professionals? It is important to:

  • Keep the lines of communication open. Companies need to communicate regularly with their staffing partners. If you are considering bringing in new temp or full-time workers, are concerned about staff qualifications and training, or have any other HR issues, your staffing partner should be the first to know. When your company communicates effectively, your staffing partner can anticipate your needs and ensure qualified candidates are available to keep your workforce fully staffed.
  • Share honest feedback about placements. Staffing professionals aim to make sure candidates are fully qualified and ready to excel in your work environment. To do this, it is helpful to have feedback about placements. Knowing which employees work out best for your business allows your staffing partner to look for candidates with similar characteristics who will also be a good fit.
  • Create a strategy that works for both sides. You and your staffing partner need to work together at all times, with a focus on your company’s needs and on the policies and practices set in place by staffing professionals. A relationship of mutual respect is beneficial for all parties during the hiring process.
