Do You Know How and Where to Find The Best Talent?

Posted July 23, 2013

Hiring people is easy—if you don’t care who you hire. Hiring the best talent—and that’s what you really want, right?—will always be more complicated and time-consuming, but worth it.

Do you have the time to find and hire the best talent? Do you know your market, the top performers in it, and who is available?

If you answered yes to all of these questions, you’re in great shape. If you answered no, you may want to think about partnering with a staffing firm.

What would you need to do?

Partnering with a staffing firm doesn’t mean just writing a check and sending over some job requirements, then expecting them to work magic. You need to be very clear with them about what your needs are. Talk to them about the kind of people you’re looking to employ and the level of skills and talents you expect.

How can they help you?

An experienced, established staffing firm will:

  • Know your market – including your competition, the star performers, and whether they are available
  • Know your industry – so they understand the right questions to ask
  • Know your company – because personality, work style and how a person will fit into your company culture are also important

They should also have a variety of contacts and a wide network to tap into—and not just electronically. So much happens now through email and the internet, but a strong staffing firm knows the importance of personal communication and contact. They know that good business is about having good relationships.

What’s one last thing to remember?

When your staffing firm presents you with a great candidate, don’t wait! Make a decision as quickly as you can. Top talent will be well known in their chosen sector, and if word gets out that they’re available, that ideal candidate might get snapped up by a rival if you delay for too long.
