Whether you have a business to lead, IT projects to deliver under tight timelines, or are focusing on keeping internal stakeholders happy, hiring for numerous unfilled positions and scaling a fast-growing team, can be quite a challenge.  

The architecture of the recruiting life cycle, when not handled by an expert, can take anywhere from 2 to 3 months to fill a technical role. In high demand technical skillsets, the unemployment rate is negative, meaning there are many more open positions as compared to available qualified candidates. To effectively build momentum with top talent so you can close them you need the most efficient hiring process, where you can present and secure an offer, in as few days as possible. If you’re not prepared to react quickly, you risk top candidates accepting offers from your competitors.  

Utilizing a highly skilled staffing agency can not only provide you with a much more efficient hiring process but can also reduce costs & save you valuable time in finding exceptional talent.

Here are the top three benefits of having a staffing agency take on your hiring process:  

1. Reliable Industry and Relationship Experts  

You want experts recruiting experts. Specialized staffing firms have a deep understanding of the job market landscape, talent nuances, market rates and can effectively coach you on whether you should be hiring a permanent employee or a contractor.  

What sets Advantis Global apart is our intense focus on the “candidate experience”, resulting in long-term relationships that create endless rewards for the candidates, us, and our client partners. We understand the competition for talent is intense, and our human connection and empathy matters more now than ever. We look for the most skilled candidates while also ensuring they fit your company culture.  

2. Spend Time Where It Matters Most  

Hiring on your own is a demanding & costly process. Here are just a few of the hidden time traps and costs:  

Specifically, when roles open unexpectedly, companies exhaust countless hours forming the next steps to finding a qualified candidate. A Deloitte study found that it takes up to 94 days to recruit for highly-skilled roles, and that still doesn’t account for the additional time your team invests in the interviewing and onboarding process.  

Rather than your lead engineers working on what’s most important i.e. building the next big market-disrupting technology, they are spending time phone screening unqualified and poorly matched candidates.

Leading the staffing industry, Advantis operates with a rapid and efficient process to fill positions. While we recognize every position is different, we are equipped with previously vetted talent pools of qualified candidates who are eager for us to schedule interviews right away.

3. Save on Hiring and Employee Costs

Staffing agencies are fundamental to a cost-effective approach when scaling a company. A vacant or inadequately filled position will affect your company’s productivity and efficiency. According to the U.S. Department of Labor, the average cost for an unfit candidate can equal 30 percent of that individual’s annual earnings.  

The client’s costs associated with using a staffing agency, generally reduce hiring costs, and can also offer additional benefits to the candidate at no additional expense to the client.

Build your company with experts who are more likely to make a quality hire, so you won’t need to restart the costly hiring process over and over. Our sole purpose at Advantis Global is to get top talent connected to opportunities with a wide variety of clients, from Tech Start-Ups to Enterprise market leaders, some of which are the most recognized and admired brands in the world.
