3 Things to Look for in a Staffing Agency

  • 3 Things to Look For in an Agency

When you bring temporary staff into your company, their ability to succeed in their roles can have a significant impact on the success of your company as a whole. It is therefore critical to choose a staffing agency that can provide reliable quality and service to your needs.

 

There are many criteria you can use to evaluate a potential staffing partner. Today we will discuss our top 3, and how they are predictive of successful outcomes. These are the areas of business development that we at Integrity Staffing Solutions focus on the most, because they are the most important to our clients' success.

 

1. Dedication to associates' success.

The agency you select should do more than just bring people in off the street. It should actively work to promote their success on the job — through training, support and incentives to grow their careers. Formal programs and procedures should be in place that you can review.

 

Example: Every Integrity associate receives pre-assignment orientation before they begin work at your job site. And a trained HR rep is always just a phone call away to resolve any questions.

 

2. Consistent innovation for process improvement.

The employment industry doesn't stand still any more than any other industry does. Your staffing agency should be constantly working to fine tune — or completely reinvent — how it goes about finding, hiring and retaining the associates it assigns to you.

 

Example: In early 2015 Integrity designed and built its own proprietary system — Op Engine — for better control over online recruitment efforts and applicant tracking. This new system has improved both speed and relevance.

 

3. Proven experience and growth in the industry.

As the saying goes, nothing succeeds like success. When a staffing agency already has an excellent track record with businesses like yours, you're more likely to be satisfied with their service as well.

 

Example: Integrity Staffing Solutions was 37th on the 2014 list of fastest-growing U.S. staffing firms.

 

A good staffing agency can be a positive force in the economy, by generating opportunities for people to advance their careers and communities. It can also be a great asset to your business. Choose carefully, taking into consideration these 3 factors, and you can look forward with confidence to a successful partnership.

Professional Networking in the Time of COVID-19
There's no doubt that social distancing has put a stop to many of the face-to-face conferences and other events where you have been used to growing and maintaining your industry connections. But there are many ways to achieve the same — or even better — results through digital channels.   Consider how many people are working from home now. Without the interruptions of a busy workplace, they're easier to reach; and they often have more time and interest in communicating. And now we all have something new in common: how to cope with our new economic reality.   Touch base with existing contacts. Former coworkers, advisors, classmates, friends, relatives — they all count as network connections who may lead you to your next position.   Send an email to ask how they're doing during this crisis and offer to help in any way you can. Some of them may be in a chaotic situation right now, so keep the focus on empathy, not asking for a favor or selling anything. You're just making a...

9 Ways to Show Your Coworkers Gratitude
  When we're rushed and stressed at work, we often don't take the time to express appreciation for our colleagues' hard work and help. And that's a shame, because a small word or gesture of thanks can have a huge effect on both the person who receives it and the one who says it.   So, let's spread the love, people! Let's brighten our day, improve our relationships, make our jobs more enjoyable and maybe even boost our careers.   1. Send a Handwritten Note Writing your "thank you" on a nice notecard is extra impressive because it shows you cared enough to put time and effort into it. The message can be just a sentence or two about why you are thanking them: pitching in during a crunch time, educating you in new techniques or responsibilities, contributing ideas or expertise to a project, etc.   2. Compliment Them in Front of the Team Tell everyone what a great job your work friend has done. Mutual appreciation is a proven team-builder, which makes everyone happier and...
