How to Choose a Staffing & Recruiting Agency for Your Company

If you’ve been on the hunt for great talent and could use a team of experts in your corner (couldn’t we ALL?), a staffing and recruiting agency is a great route to go. It’s like pressing the “easy button” for hiring great talent for your team. How might you navigate the wide array of staffing and recruiting agency options out there? The bottom line is it’s about what agency is the right fit for your needs. So let’s dig into how you might evaluate this.


First off, what exactly do staffing and recruiting agencies do for a company?

Great question! Staffing and recruiting agencies are experts when it comes to finding the perfect candidates for your job openings. Their sole focus is matching employees with employers, saving companies valuable time (and money!). Keep in mind that some agencies recruit for a breadth of industries across varying levels of roles, and others are more specialized to certain areas. For that reason, you’ll want to make sure they are well versed in hiring for your specific industry.


Using a Staffing & Recruiting agency is a win, win, win!

When it comes to matching your company’s job openings with top talent, a staffing and recruiting agency is there as an advocate for YOU. They are in your corner, available as an ongoing resource as you navigate your options (and, an advocate if you change your mind along the way). Plus, did you know they can also handle administration like payroll services, negotiating contracts, benefits, taxes, employment issues and so much more? Sweet! Consider us your professional “ultimate Mom”, without the cookies in the oven.


What should I look for in an agency?

  • We highly recommend checking into:
  • The number of years they’ve been in business
  • The industries they serve
  •  If they’re part of any professional associations
  • The number and quality of job listings they have available
  • Their client testimonials 


Once I find an agency, how does it work?

Clients can expect to pay a percent of a new direct hire’s annual salary as a finder’s fee, or a mark-up on a contractor’s fee. If the person hired is a contractor or contract-to-hire, the agency, rather than the client, is responsible for their benefits, taxes, and employment risks. The agency then typically bills the client weekly for the contractors on assignment.
