We know right now you are probably up to your elbows with clients and associates, working on all sorts of issues as a manager or owner of your staffing business. Of all these issues, hiring is most likely top of mind. No wonder – it seems that every segment of your business is going up, according to the latest BLS data, available in January of this year. You can read about this here. This is ten years plus of growth in our industry, which is something to be celebrated, as it gets more professional and acceptable in corporate and manufacturing and all the niches you excel at.
How Can You Increase Speed-To-Hire?
How do you retain that trust, or build on it?
One crucial aspect, and where you can bring professionalism to the table, is accelerated with your speed to hire.
You can really boost your credibility here. One idea: Work with your client on what their needs are. Hopefully, you have a good relationship with your client, but if you don’t, you can get to know them by learning their business and employment cycles. For example, some questions you might ask the client: What is the culture like? Are you looking for a short-term solution or a possible full-time employee? These are some of the questions that will lead you to decide how to match your associates with the level of commitment you can promise them.
Time-to-fill is something you can do as well, with the proper research. Know your market, and then you’ll be able to understand the economic climate – within your niche or in the wider regional picture. With this information, you can manage your client’s expectations, and you’re one step closer to success.
Do You Have an Active Talent Stream?
Another great idea is to manage your talent pool. These are your associates that will be between jobs but might be a perfect match. You can screen your employees and monitor their customer reviews (another way to increase your connectivity to your clients).
