Benefits of Using an IT Staffing Agency

The Benefits of Using an IT Staffing Agency

Job seekers in the U.S. often turn to staffing agencies to further their careers. Statistics from the American Staffing Association (ASA) revealed that roughly 14 million Americans find employment through a recruitment agency every year, and around 3 million contract or part-time employees work for American staffing agencies in any given week. What are the benefits to an employer to use an agency?  Some advantages of using an agency include a large network of qualified candidates, a streamlined recruitment process, and boosted new hire ROI.

Recruitment firms like The Autumn Group have a more extensive reach to a wider pool of candidates.  Firms are generally well-connected and have the resources to reach passive candidates who may not necessarily be looking for a new job.  Some of the very finest recruiting agencies will spend up to 90% of their time reaching out to passive candidates and networking with organizations.

To gain the most value from an agency, hiring managers can utilize top strategies.  By following the steps below, companies will be able to optimize the success of their relationship with their firm and ensure they boost the ROI on new hires.

Find a Niche Staffing Agency to Suit Hiring Needs

There is a lot of value in using a niche staffing agency that specializes in the positions you are offering.  Why use a staffing agency that staffs a wide range of positions when you can find one that specializes in recruiting the candidates you really need?

There are a number of agencies that find job seekers across a spectrum of business sectors, but they tend to be less effective than staffing agencies that focus specifically on one or a few different areas. Niche staffing agencies focus on specific positions within a department in a range of industries.


Does your agency offer screening measures, such as criminal background checks and drug testing?  Regular communication is key to establishing an effective working relationship with a staffing agency.  Email contact will suffice for small, day-to-day details. Meeting in person for routine meetings as a way to check-in and ensure both parties are on the same page, working towards the same goal. The ASA advised that hiring managers actively inquire about the processes and techniques that their agency of choice utilizes to find their talent. Routine input from hiring managers can strengthen the working relationship further, guaranteeing that a company receives the best ROI from their next employee.
