In today’s fast-paced world, time is one of the most valuable commodities out there for independent business owners. Nobody has it and everybody needs it.
One of the best ways to optimize time is by staffing your company with efficient, cost-effective, and talented tech workers…but staffing your company efficient, cost-effective, and talented tech workers require a lot of time.
To summarize: you have a shortage of time and the best way to create a surplus of time is by using the time (which you do not have). It’s not hard to see the problem, right? In many cases, a skilled tech staffing agency is the solution.
How using a tech staffing agency saves small businesses time
In the United States, the average interview process takes 20-30 days. This is not even counting the process of creating and posting the job advertisement. The overall process is usually quite long, as any business owner or hiring manager can attest to.
Off the bat, a tech staffing agency can reduce the time you and your team invest in the process by managing the job posting, application vetting, and interview scheduling.
In and of itself, this may not reduce the number of days involved in the hiring process, but it will greatly reduce the direct involvement of your company, as the majority of the work occurs behind the scenes. This frees up your team to focus on other aspects of your business. On top of that, because a tech staffing agency only focuses on recruitment, the overall efficiency of the process, and the quality of candidates, get a boost.
What about expedited hires?
For situations that require a condensed hiring process, tech staffing agencies usually have a roster of qualified short-term candidates to call upon, often used explicitly for these exact situations.
If the recruiter doesn’t have a stop-gap candidate ready to go, or you require a more long-term fix, tech staffing agencies know where to look for the right candidates. By focusing on placements for developers, engineers, and other specialized skill-sets, tech recruiters usually have a more direct line to these workers than generalized staffing firms.
Remember, good tech staffing agencies don’t just work quickly – we also take pride in securing top-flight talent. The best part? When you factor in the hours you and your team would have spent on the process, tech staffing agencies often make hiring cheaper too.
