5 Tips for Choosing a Staffing Firm

Ideally, you want to choose a staffing firm you can trust. After all, you’ll be partnering with them to help manage your most important asset – your employees. Here are a few ideas to help you make the right choice.

1. Trust your first impression
Is the firm professional? Does it seem to match your company’s culture?

2. Learn about the firm’s history
Has it been around long enough to know the market and your industry? Are past clients happy with the results? And how long has the current leadership team been in place? Management churn can affect quality.

3. Understand how they recruit and retain workers
Their workforce will be your workforce. Get details. What type of pay and benefits do they offer? What’s their turnover rate?

4. Look for a good match
Seek a staffing partner that understands your company, your industry and the competition for staff in your field.

5. Find out about the firm’s strengths
Does it focus on filling short- or long-term vacancies? How does its experience match your needs?
