The Key to Maximizing Your Hiring Budget in 2014

As your company prepares a budget for a new year, you’re probably looking for ways to reduce costs or make the most of the amounts that have been allotted. Hiring is one of the biggest expenses a company faces, and not usually one that can be scaled down, because not being able to hire great candidates will grind your workplace to a halt. So how do you make the most of your hiring budget? Partner with a staffing firm. Here’s why:

You don’t have to wait to recruit.
Staffing firms already have a pool of qualified candidates that they can tap. The fact that staffing firms are connected to multiple employers means that smart candidates come to them because they know it’s an efficient way to find a job. This means that there is already a pile of resumes on a recruiters desk that may be perfect for you, and you can get your new employee to work sooner and save the cost of an expensive search.

You can work with a specialist.
What if you’re trying to hire someone with specific skills that you don’t necessarily have working knowledge of, like information technology or healthcare? Well, there’s a recruiter out there who knows how to handle it for you. You don’t have to read up on programming before an interview to determine if a candidate is a good fit; your staffing specialist already knows the ins and outs of the job, and will take care of the interview process for you.

You can avoid being overstaffed.
Does your company have special projects planned for 2014? Keep in mind that you don’t have to hire permanent, full-time staff if you don’t need to. Staffing specialists can help you find temporary employees to help with temporary projects. It’s more cost effective in the long run than hiring a full-time, benefit-eligible employee who you may not need for the entire year.
