In the multifamily industry, hiring a talented executive can require a significant amount of time, money, and expertise. From exorbitant costs associated with promoting job openings to time spent conducting screenings and background checks, many companies have struggled to find qualified talent in a timely manner. Partnering with a specialized staffing agency when hiring for executive placements can give you a major advantage in finding top-level candidates. Here are some of the many reasons to consider using a recruiter to assist in your executive candidate search this year:
Efficient and timely hiring.
In the event of an unexpected vacancy or growing leadership need, organizations must fill executive positions relatively quickly. Faced with limited internal resources, this can prove to be challenging for companies that must start searching for candidates from scratch. This can be particularly difficult in the case of finding an individual with the narrowly defined qualifications required to successfully carry out the position. Staffing firms have the ability to find potential candidates within a certain timeframe, sourcing talent through a variety of pipelines and means. For companies that depend on the prompt fulfillment of leadership positions, staffing partnerships are ideal in expediting the hiring process.
Access to a broader range of candidates.
In today’s hypercompetitive market, most employers are essentially fighting for the same talent. Because of recruiters’ vast network and relationships, staffing firms can provide access to a broader range of potential talent. In many cases, firms will source and engage highly qualified passive jobseekers who may find your position appealing enough to leave their current employment. Being able to tap into this pool of talent is one of the most unique benefits of working with a staffing firm.
Detailed candidate screenings and preliminary interviews.
One of the most time-consuming aspects of the recruitment and hiring process, staffing firms take care of conducting screenings and interviews with all candidates, alleviating your company of having to undergo the burden of filtering through talent. These procedures make staffing firms particularly useful. They are highly knowledgeable about the skills, background and expertise candidates need to successfully fill executive roles. Once candidates are thoroughly vetted, they are then presented to your internal team for review before the formal interviewing process begins.
The end result? Partnering with a executive staffing firm for your next executive search can be beneficial in streamlining your hiring process at large, and most importantly, finding the best individual for the job.
