There are over 20,000 staffing agencies in the U.S. that can provide temporary, temp-to-hire or permanent employees, according to the American Staffing Association. But choosing the right staffing agency to work with can be difficult, especially for large businesses and major brands. If you’re struggling to find workers or feel like your current agency isn’t meeting your existing needs, working with a staffing partner that has a national footprint is the answer. Below, we share three reasons why partnering with PeopleReady and our nationwide team of staffing experts benefits your company.
Expanded pool of top-performing candidates
Among HR professionals, 75% of those having recruiting difficulty say there is a shortage of skills in candidates for job openings, according to the Society of Human Resource Management. If a candidate doesn’t have prior work experience in your industry, they may not be able to get the job done. In an increasingly hectic world, you can’t spend precious time or resources getting your temp staff up to speed. Therefore, candidates who have prior skills and experience in your industry are extremely valuable.
Working with a nationwide temp agency expands that pool of qualified candidates available to fill your open roles. With our geographic footprint in over 650 communities across the United States, Canada and Puerto Rico, PeopleReady is in the best position to help you scale your workforce. As a result, you have greater access to vetted and trusted candidates who have the skills and experience you need.
In-depth knowledge of the world of work
Another benefit of using a temp staffing company with a national footprint is that they have an understanding of national staffing trends. This can help provide insight into your competitors and overall industry. That way, your staffing agency can be an active participant in conversations about your future goals and growth. As a result, you get a customized plan that works along with a single point of contact throughout your staffing relationship.
And because we have 35 years of experience in staffing across several industries, PeopleReady keeps an eye on hiring trends and understands how to capitalize on them. Our rich history has given us the resources and tools to manage complex situations for our customers. And in today’s hot hiring market, we know what it takes to help you compete for top candidates in a variety of roles.
Personalized service with a local connection
Unfortunately, many temp staffing agencies with a national footprint don’t offer personalized service and a true partnership for your company. On the other hand, a staffing agency that has a presence in your community are a great asset. How so? Because they have access to staffing experts who have a pulse on your local market. Meanwhile, they also know the people who work and live there.
When you’re seeking to fill open roles, you also want a staffing partner with a proven track record of community involvement. In order to find the best candidates, PeopleReady is engaged with community groups, government organizations and academic institutions. Bottom line: We ensure a personal touch is always part of your staffing experience.
