The days of opening a job ad and being flooded with qualified candidates are over. In July 2021 there were 490,000 openings for warehouse and logistics workers in the U.S. The construction trade says it needs to add 2.2 million more workers in the next few years to keep up with demand. The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reports hospitality, trade, and transportation, as well as business services and manufacturing, have all been hit hard by the Great Resignation.
But this probably isn’t news to you. The American business owner has been grappling with labor shortages since the pandemic began two years ago. It’s a time of unprecedented stress for hiring managers. This kind of pressure requires companies of all sizes and in all industries to consider new partnerships to help them find the talent they need when they need it the most.
That’s exactly the place where a staffing agency can help.
How Can a Staffing Agency Fulfill Your Hiring Goals?
Today, hiring is more than a full-time job. That’s because the labor shortage has left us with a pool of hidden candidates that requires an extra effort to ferret out. These passive job candidates are casually considering other options, but haven’t actively sent you a resume. According to the latest data, that’s almost 50% of the workforce. But which 50%? How can you find them?
Target Passive Candidates
Speaking from our experience, Lingo Staffing targets these passive candidates, building relationships that turn into applicants for your business. We have an active candidate pool in our database that we’ve been building for years. That translates to an immediate uptick in the interviews and job offers that you’ll end up with when partnering with our firm.
Save You Time
Staffing agencies, in general, spend hours every day searching for new candidates. Over time, this creates a network of qualified talent that you can draw upon to fill your open positions. This saves you a significant amount of time and money spent on recruiting new candidates to your company.
They’ll Market Your Company For You
Another way a staffing agency can fulfill your hiring goals is through marketing your company to these candidates. Lingo Staffing partners closely with client businesses, representing the brand and the culture out there in the big world to candidates and networking partners. This familiarity with your goals, brand, and culture offers the added benefit of representation in the marketplace that ultimately leads to goodwill—and great candidates. We truly believe our work is a partnership with your existing HR team and take the time to get to know your business goals before we ever pick up the phone.
