There are a lot of different benefits that working with Randstad can bring to your business. We provide total talent solutions, from staffing all the way up through strategic support for areas like employee engagement, retention and workforce management.
Here are the top three reasons why working with Randstad could be great for your business.
Finding the perfect match between a candidate and an employer is no easy task. Every workplace culture is different, and every role has its own preferred set of criteria, from skills and past experience to other factors that may be more difficult to quantify — yet no less important — like personality or communication style. And if you dive into the hiring process without the right plan, it'll be difficult to find candidates that check all the boxes you need to make a perfect match.
To get it right, you need the right approach, and we’ve seen ours succeed in helping our clients get the talent they need for a long time now. We call it high-tech, high-touch because it combines the best of both worlds: the power of today's latest sourcing technologies mixed with the experienced human insight of our recruiters. We’ve found that putting people first and never forgetting the critical human element behind staffing gives our customers the best results.
However, that doesn’t mean that we put technology by the wayside. Thanks to new digital tools, we're able to source and qualify candidates faster than ever before — it’s just that that only gets you so far. Resumes tell only a small part of the story, and to find the best fit for your organization you need to go beyond the margins. Our staffing experts will spend time with you and your business to learn about what matters to you and get a feel for the pulse of your working environment and the personalities that populate it. That way, when it's time to deliver, you know you'll be getting talent that's the right fit.
Posting on a job board can result in an avalanche of applications. Having an applicant tracking software (ATS) helps, but at the end of the day, you might still be left with a large pile of unvetted resumes. It's bound to be a mixed bag, and you'll have to spend a lot of time phone screening and interviewing to narrow it down to a few worthy contenders.
But when you work with us, you get access to our large talent network, filled with skilled professionals from both all across the globe and right in your own backyard. There's a lot of strength in numbers, but we're not building relationships with just anyone — and that may be where the biggest benefit lies. The candidates in our network are pre-vetted and proven in the fields you're looking to fill, so you know that no matter who we send, they'll have the tools needed to get the job done. With fewer unqualified applicants to sift through, you'll be able to move toward the right hire that much more quickly.
This point brings us to the last — but certainly not least — reason to work with us: accelerated time to hire. We've talked about all the ways our proprietary approach to staffing and extensive talent network can help you find great candidates, but the time it takes to find them can be equally as important.
The average time-to-fill rate for most organizations is over 30 days — but top talent is often on the market for as little as 10. That means that if you want to attract and secure the market's most sought-after candidates, you need to act quickly.
At the same time, making a hiring decision is a process that should never be rushed, but with all the current market trends seeming to indicate otherwise, many businesses are finding themselves stuck between a rock and a hard place. They know that in today's tight talent market they need to act fast. Yet at the same time, rushing and ending up with a bad hire on their hands is an equally unappealing scenario.
We help businesses overcome this by focusing on our primary strengths. Our high-tech, high-touch approach allows us to identify possible candidates quickly and pulling them from our pre-vetted talent network means that they'll have the right skills needed to succeed in the role. This delivers speed without sacrificing quality, and it's an approach that's helped many of the organizations we work with accelerate their hiring cycles, reduce their time to hire and win better talent in the end.
The top three reasons to work with Randstad all boil down to our ability to deliver you quality talent quickly. Our high-tech, high-touch approach to staffing is designed to find candidates that have the right skills and working style for your office environment, and our large network of qualified, pre-vetted professionals means we know just where to go to get them.
