4 Reasons to Use a Staffing Firm for Hiring

Finding talent remains a challenge for companies in nearly every industry sector. Whether you’re a smaller company without an HR staff or a larger company with an HR team, employers are realizing they have the same struggles when looking for qualified candidates to fill job openings. No longer are we posting and praying, instead we are carefully and skillfully mining for passive candidates who will fit into our organizations. Partnering with a staffing firm is a tremendous help.

Staffing firms, like Westphal Staffing, can help you find talent faster because this is our specialty. While your HR team is solving employee relation issues, answering benefit questions, or dealing with safety concerns, we are mining passive candidates for you. And while we have a pool of talented people in our database who may be ready when you’re ready to hire, we also have access to databases and websites we’ve invested in to help with this process.

Plus, we have the hiring process down to a science. We understand our clients and get to the bottom of your needs quickly and accurately. Because there’s a lot that goes into hiring the right candidate:

  • writing the job description
  • posting the job listing
  • collecting, organizing, and reviewing cover letters and resumes
  • prescreening applicants
  • conducting formal interviews
  • checking references and verifying past employment
  • conducting background screenings
  • working through compensation packages
  • extending a job offer

But don’t worry, we’re the experts who’ve got this covered. Whether you’re in the market for temporary or permanent associates, partnering with Westphal Staffing is a great business decision for four good reasons.

When you need employees FAST then start with a staffing company. We’ll speed up your hiring process and take the interview/hiring burden off your employees.

Wouldn’t it be nice to get a phone call saying someone is starting on Monday, knowing you didn’t have to put in weeks or months of work to make it happen?

Do you have a project or busy season coming up? Hiring temporary employees can alleviate staffing shortfalls and keep your employees focused in their area of expertise. This can help prevent employee burnout, which can lead to a decrease in productivity and increased absenteeism. Contact us today if you have a busy season coming up – let’s start preparing for it now!

Staffing companies can save you dollars that can be allocated elsewhere. One way is by cutting internal recruitment costs within your organization. We will spend our time and resources separating qualified candidates from unqualified candidates. You tell us what you want, and we take it from there – saving you significant time and money.

We all know this, but replacing employees is costly! Staffing companies can help minimize the risk and costs of replacing employees through our temporary to full-time hiring solution. You’ll get a chance to review their skills and culture fit to see if there is a match for the long term. We specialize in finding the right candidates that are the right fit, every time. And it’s our recruitment dollars at work, not yours, saving you the effort in finding what works. We already know!

With a staffing company, you won’t have to start your search from scratch. Finding candidates is easier because we already have an established and extensive pool of candidates to choose from. We are constantly recruiting both active and passive talent in the marketplace, increasing the overall quality of new hires for our clients!

We’re not just weeding out the bad hires – we’re finding the GREAT hires! Job seekers are turning to staffing firms now more than ever.

We spend time with each person to understand their career goals, conduct assessments, and match them with their dream job, which could be yours!
