In the hectic day-to-day of running a business, recruitment challenges often fall on senior leaders, adding to the workload, and affecting the quality of the recruitment process. The ongoing debate about whether to manage recruitment internally or outsource to external recruitment partners, like Square Peg Associates, should be simple, trust the experts and allow yourself time to do what you do best!
For some businesses, the prospect of outsourcing recruitment can be met with apprehension. Concerns can revolve around relinquishing control, potential communication challenges, and the fear of a disconnect with the company’s culture. Some worry about the initial costs associated with outsourcing and the potential dependency on external partners. These concerns, while valid, deserve a balanced evaluation.
When outsourcing your business recruitment, you get access to a wider talent pool, specialist expertise, and overall cost efficiencies (yes, developing a relationship with the right recruitment partner can save you money!). So, let’s talk about the benefits of outsourcing recruitment.
Recruitment can be a lengthy process if executed ineffectively. To effectively hire the right candidates on time and within budget, a solid recruitment strategy and optimised process is essential. According to studies, a refined strategy can reduce the recruitment process by 60%.
