Why a Direct Hire Recruiting Service Will Land You Better Candidates

Concept illustration showing a magnifying glass finding a worker suitable for a job positionIt’s a burning question that’s been around for decades…and we know you’re dying to know the answer. Why should an employer use a direct hire recruiting service instead of internal staff and resources? There are lots of reasons why an employer should leave the hard work of direct hire recruiting to an outside staffing firm. Here are our top 3 reasons:

A good staffing firm is comprised of true industry experts who often bring years, even decades, of experience to the table. Staffing is what they were born to do! They have great insight into the various markets they serve, and are well-trained in all aspects of the direct hire recruiting process – like candidate screening, skills assessment, interviewing and reference checking. It’s expertise that ensures you’re getting the right individual for the job.

Big Talent Pool
Direct hire recruiters have a big network of qualified candidates they can immediately tap into when looking to fill positions for their clients. The advantage is that many of these candidates are passive, meaning they have a job and aren’t actively looking for a new job, but are open to hearing about potential opportunities from recruiters. Companies that handle their own hiring only get access to active job seekers. But when they use a direct hire recruiting service, they get the best of both worlds – the active and passive candidates.

Less Risk
A reputable staffing firm will offer a guarantee for their direct hire placements. At A.R. Mazzotta, for example, direct hires are guaranteed with a comprehensive six-month replacement agreement that offers 100% protection for the first 90 days. This gives the employer peace of mind, just in case the direct hire ends up not being an appropriate match for the company.
