Today’s employment market presents plenty of challenges. From the restrictions of Covid-19 to ensuring that applications get in front of the right people at your organization, there is a lot to consider. Working with a global workforce solutions provider can not only simplify the process but ensure you get your desired outcome too.
The value of people is the most important of all the assets an organization possesses, as this contributes not only to the company culture and brand but largely in the profits, market value, sales figures, and consequently the accounts. Employees should be recognized as a company’s greatest asset.
A workforce solutions provider is a key partner for organizations that are keen to get ahead. Here are seven ways they can help.
Access to the right candidates. Many organizations choose to work exclusively with workforce solutions providers, so you’re much more likely to get access to a wider audience of candidates that are right for your business. The right workforce solutions provider will have extensive network links covering hard-to-reach candidates that are not actively seeking a job and giving you access to the best talented candidates across various industries and markets.
Strong links to key employers. Many workforce solutions providers invest time and resources on building strong links with businesses with extended reach into talent pools. If you’re working with a workforce solutions provider, you’re more likely to benefit from this investment in relationships with their understanding of the roles, what’s happening in the markets and specialist industries in finding the right candidate.
Support throughout the process. From partnering with your business, a workforce solutions provider can be an essential part of delivering successful outcomes in finding the right candidate, including background checks, conducting preliminary interviews and quality checking their CV to actual skills. So, when businesses get to meet potential candidates, they are of a high caliber. Additional services can be used encompassing psychometric tests, executive searches, project support and managed services are all offered by the best workforce providers.
Expertise and insight. Working with a workforce solutions provider that specializes in your industry can improve the return you see on your efforts. Volt International, for example, is well known for global expertise in life sciences, IT, engineering and manufacturing to name just a few. We have industry insight and connections in these sectors that a more general workforce/recruitment provider just can’t offer, enabling us to give feedback on what’s happening in the market and providing insight into how to reach out to the very best talent, salary rates, career expectations, available skill sets and avoiding wrong hires — which can be costly to a business.
Saving time and money. The process of selecting applicants can be incredibly time consuming. Many workforce solutions providers offer time-saving resources and advice that can help you to avoid wasting focus and energy that is better spent on your business. You’ll often find working with a workforce solutions provider is much more efficient and keeping to deadlines to fill a position. In addition, workforce solutions providers will have access to the top job board platforms to make sure your job advert is placed in the right place at the right time, making it very cost effective whilst building a trusted relationship with a partner that truly understands your market.
Providing constructive feedback. If you’re not seeing the results you want from your recruitment efforts, then you may find it disillusioning. Working with a workforce solutions provider offers opportunities for constructive feedback that can be an essential part of the process of improving your application and approach and creating better outcomes as a result.
Market knowledge. Especially today, markets change quickly and you have to move fast to make the most of opportunities with access to the best candidate talent pools. A workforce solutions provider gives up to date market knowledge and is an essential ally to ensure that chances are not missed.
