Today’s business world is constantly changing, and a lot of times, staffing needs must also be flexible. With the right contingency option, you can keep up with those changes without ever losing sight of your company’s goals. That being said, not every option is optimal for every team. Keep reading to learn more about the top 3 contingency options that will ensure that your employees are always ready to hit the ground running:
The first option is to hire current employees. This is a great option because they are already familiar with your company culture and work environment, so they can be trained quickly. It’s also much less expensive than hiring outside contractors or new hires.
If you have an open position that may need to be filled immediately, it’s best to look at current staff members who could potentially fill the role. You may find that someone on your team has been itching for more responsibility or just needs a change of pace from their current job responsibilities–and this could be the perfect opportunity for them!
It’s worth noting that there are some downsides when hiring from within: Your company will lose valuable training time if someone leaves before being fully trained; it can also create tension between employees if there isn’t enough work available (but don’t worry — there usually is).
Using Social Media
Social media is a great way to find candidates, but it can also help you reach a broader audience. Social media allows you to reach out to potential employees who may not be actively looking for work or even in your area. If your staffing agency uses social media as part of their recruitment strategy, they may already have connections with people in other cities or states that would make good candidates for the position at hand.
Contingency Staffing Agency
Contingency staffing agencies are good for filling long-term positions. If you have a position that is going to be open for a while and you need someone who can fill it, then using a contingency staffing agency is a good option. They will find candidates that fit your needs and then send them over for interviews.
A permanent placement staffing agency is another viable option for finding the right person for your company. This type of agency will work with you over time to find someone who can do the job well, so it may take some time before they find someone perfect but once they do there’s no need for further searches because this person will stay with them until he/she leaves or retires from his/her career path.
There are a lot of options for your staffing needs, but we believe that contingency staffing agencies should be the first choice. They allow you to get the help you need when it’s needed most and they won’t cost you much more than if you were doing it yourself.
