5 Benefits of Outsourcing Your Recruiting Efforts

November 4th, 2016

As a devoted business leader, you take a hands-on approach to running your company, but there’s only so many hours in the day. If you’re starting to realize you don’t have the time or expertise needed to recruit the caliber of finance and accounting talent you want to hire, partnering with a staffing firm might be the answer.

Learn some of the advantages you’ll realize by relinquishing control of your hiring process to a skilled recruiter whose entire reputation is based on their ability to find the right person for the job.

Gain Access to Passive Job Seekers

When you post an open position on a job board or your company HR site, the only candidates you’ll reach are those actively looking for work. Recruiters broaden your horizons by expanding your selection pool to include their network of passive job seekers — including industry-leading managers and supervisors — who may only interested in making a career move for the right opportunity.

Get More Time in Your Day

If your accounting team is short-staffed, hiring will quickly become your top priority, but it certainly isn’t the only part of your job description. When you outsource your recruiting efforts to a recruiter, you have time to focus on other business priorities that would otherwise have to be put on hold until after you’ve filled the position.

Make Better Hiring Decisions

According to research commissioned by Glassdoor from the Brandon Hall Group, 95 percent of employers make at least one bad hiring decision each year. In addition to sky-high monetary costs, these poor choices bring a host of other negative consequences, including decreased employee morale and lost client relationships. However, recruiters are staffing experts, so they know exactly what questions to ask accounting and finance talent to ensure the best person for the job is always selected.

Minimize the Risk of New Hires

No matter how carefully your accounting and finance talent is vetted, there’s always a chance your chosen candidate won’t work out. When you work with staffing partner, they carry the risk for you. If the person hired turns out to be a bad fit, most will find a replacement free of charge — during an initial trial period — so you don’t have to endure the expense twice.

Keep up With Market Trends

Recruiters know the market inside and out, so you can count on them to keep you updated on the latest trends impacting the financial realm. In addition to helping you find top talent, your recruiter will let you know about current salary expectations, desired employment perks, skill sets your competitors are seeking and hiring challenges faced by other employers in the industry.
