Benefits Earlier this month, the Illinois Search and Staffing Association held their annual Midwest Conference in Chicago.

Richard Wahlquist, CEO of the American Staffing Association, shared insights into the staffing industry including survey statistics from Inavero about reasons companies benefit from staffing agencies.

Are you sitting on the fence considering a decision to partner with a staffing firm?

Are you looking for creative ways to expand resources to achieve internal goals or bridge a skills gap.

The Inavero data presented by Richard tells the story of the top 5 benefits that may help you find the answer to these questions.

Of the surveyed parties, the top ranked benefits of working with a staffing firm were:

  1. Ability to easily change the size of workforce based on project load.
  2. Can fill open positions faster than we can internally.
  3. Ability to attain hard to hire, but specialized skills.
  4. Access to a larger candidate pool.
  5. The ability to “try before hiring.”

Adding the second and third ranked benefits rearranges these benefits, but keeps the same 5.  Clearly, as Richard Wahlquist stated, the top perceived benefits by employers for working with a staffing firm can be summarized as “flexibility, speed and access to talent.”
