Some think that if you want a job done well then DIY (Do it yourself) is the way ahead. Well that may be true in some cases. But is the DIY policy effective for recruitment? To do things yourself, you need many tools to accomplish the task at hand and you also need the time to that end. So is the recruitment process. You could do it yourself, but you would need all the tools to make the right hire allot sufficient time, time which you could perhaps use it in taking care of your company. Believe it or not, in this regard “getting it done” is more efficient than “do it yourself.” Let’s see why.
Many little expenses make a huge loss
Tools of hiring are expensive. The man power, advertisement, job boards and background screening cost money. And these expenses could steadily increase. Recruiting professionals have all these under one roof. When a company lets them handle the recruitment process they are rolling all the costs into one. This saves money on a bad hire and saves on the cost of having an infrastructure to take care of recruitment. Therefore in the long run money is saved.
One less role to juggle
At times there is more than one role to juggle in a company. It is all the more so true if the company is expanding with tremendous speed.
- During this time the company may not have a flexible recruiting team and so others may have an additional role to juggle.
- This might affect the quality of their work. But recruiting professionals have scalable teams to accommodate the urgent needs of the company.
- They are able to dedicate all of their time to recruiting.
Letting the professionals handle the recruiting process not only saves time but also enables the existing workforce to deliver quality work.
Zeroing in on the best candidate made easy
Zeroing in on the best candidate in a sea of candidates is tedious. And it could be risky because, if you delay your selection even slightly your competitor might get hold of the best candidate. Recruiting professionals are experts in recruiting because they have the needed expertise and experience in zeroing in on the best candidate for your company. With the tools they have they can locate him/her at times even before he is out in the market looking for a job.
More attractive employment brand
A candidate is first attracted by the image your employment brand processes. When all the recruiting processes are organized well and function well, the brand name becomes attractive, and the best candidates are attracted to your company. When that happens, the quality of his eventual contribution to your organization improves. If the candidates have a good experience they will surely talk about it, which further adds to your employment brand image.
