Five Questions to Ask

When it comes to choosing the right employment agency, you have every right to be particular. The right staffing agency will be a good fit and become a partner in filling your company’s job vacancies. It’s a close relationship, as well as a major investment, so you’ll want to find the best partner possible when it comes to finding the right agency.

Here are some questions to help you find just the right employment agency for your company’s needs:

1) What experience does the agency have with recruiting in my industry?
Before hiring an agency, you’ll want to make sure they have expertise in your industry. Expertise in the field ensures that skills and culture are specific and a good fit, which will help the recruiter to find the best employees for your job openings. You might ask if the agency attends industry events, if they’ve filled similar positions in other companies, etc. If the agency doesn’t have expertise in your field, then pass them by and search for an employment agency that works within your industry.

2) How does the agency charge?
You’ll need to learn how the agency charges and have a good understanding of their fee structure. Look for a recruiting agency that has a clear and easily understood rates. This way you won’t have any surprises when it comes time to pay for services.

3) What happens if the employee placed isn’t a good fit?
Occasionally it happens that a new hire by the recruiting agency isn’t be a good fit. So, be sure to check out the agency’s policy’s on how they handle these situations. Read the fine print in the contract and ask questions to make sure you understand what you’re paying for and what happens if a new hire doesn’t work out. Look for agencies that offer refunds or other acceptable terms when an employee isn’t a good fit.

4) Does the agency invest time to truly understand your company’s needs?
Look for recruiters who take an interest in your company. A good staffing agency will want to meet you in person, ask pertinent questions about your business, requirements for the job opening(s), etc. Stay away from agencies that don’t take the time and effort to get to know you and your business.

5). What is the agency’s employer branding? Does it take care of their temporary employees? Something businesses often overlook is the staffing agency’s employer branding. Why shouldn’t you neglect this point? Employer branding is the process of caring for employees, as well as creating value. If a staffing agency treats their employees well, then turnover rates will be lower. Not only that, but the recruiting agency will be able to provide you with the best qualified and most talented employees for the job—all because they take care of their employees.
