The good news for employers is they don’t have to go it alone when it comes to hiring workers. If you’re a CT company that could use staffing support in 2017, here are 7 reasons why you should use a CT staffing firm like A.R. Mazzotta.

Staffing Firms Have Solid Market Knowledge
Staffing agencies (at least the good ones) have an in-depth understanding of the market or markets they work in, whether it’s accounting, manufacturing, IT or another niche market. Their knowledge comes from working in the field, every day, year-round. They know what qualifications a candidate needs to succeed in a specific market. That level of knowledge can be tough for an employer to attain since they’re juggling lots of balls in the air at once, not just the hiring ball.

They Also Have a Large Network
One of the biggest advantages that a staffing agency has over employers is they have access to both active and passive talent when filling positions – so the caliber of candidates that an agency brings to the table is better. They can leverage their large network of passive talent who might not be actively looking for a job, but would consider a job move if the right opportunity came along.

They Have Flexibility
Staffing agencies like A.R. Mazzotta have the flexibility to offer different kinds of staffing services based on an employer’s current situation and hiring needs, which could shift over the course of weeks and months. We offer direct hire recruiting for full-time positions as well as well as temporary/contract staffing services and temp-to-hire services. So as your business needs change, we can change with you and place qualified workers when you want, and how you want.

They Move Fast
It’s no secret that for employers, the average time from job interview to offer is typically several weeks – and sometimes months. And when the market is good, candidates have the upper hand, which makes the hiring process all that more challenging. Having a staffing firm take on the candidate screening process, interviews, background checks, presentation of offer and negotiations can shorten that interview-to-hire timeframe significantly. 

They Do the Heavy Lifting
Entrepreneur.com shared that there were 125 employment laws in 1980. Today, there are more than 2,000 different laws and clauses that employers must comply with or face the penalties. If they want to avoid the risk of noncompliance, they can hire a staffing agency that will do the heavy lifting and make sure all the I’s are dotted and T’s crossed. For temp and temp-to-hire work, the staffing agency serves as the employer so they also take care of payroll, taxes, health insurance, workers comp issues and more. They handle all this work so you don’t have to.

They Can Help Reduce Employee Burnout
When production ramps up or a big new project comes in the door and you have more work than you have workers, a staffing agency can help prevent burnout of your current employees. Staffing up with temporary workers, for whatever timeframe you need, keeps everyone happy and keeps productivity at an optimal level.

They Guarantee Their Work
Many staffing firms will guarantee that the candidate they hire for you will be the right fit. A.R. Mazzotta’s direct hire placements are guaranteed with a 6-month replacement contract that provides 100% protection for the first 90 days.
