How do you select a staffing agency that would give you the best results?

ALWAYS USE STAFFING COMPANIES WITH GOOD TRACK RECORDS. Since you are using the staffing firm as a guide to meeting your staffing needs, experience is a must. The firm should be able to point to satisfied clients. Also, the firm must have experience in filling similar positions and in your industry. You should ask the agency for the type of staff it usually places. From their answer, you can decide if they are a fit for you.

EVERY COMPANY WANTS QUALITY STAFF. Before you choose a staffing firm, find out how they screen their candidates. Do they just take anyone? What sort of skills do their candidates have? Only use staffing firms that have a history of placing quality employees.

WHAT VALUE ADDED SERVICES DOES THE STAFFING COMPANY PROVIDE? Many staffing agencies would usually place workers and leave it at that, forcing the employer to deal with other issues of the employment contract. However, a good staffing agency would provide other services like salary negotiation and benefits planning, on-boarding, etc. In essence, you should get a staffing agency that would go beyond staffing to providing consultancy for your human capital needs.

For the reasons above, it is usually best to use a full service staffing agency as they would be better equipped to provide the array of services needed to fully meet your staffing needs.

Above all, you should choose a staffing company that provides competitive pricing. A very low price might be a sign that you would get poor quality staff.

With the tips above, you should be able to select the right staffing agency to help you meet your personnel needs.
