Outsourced Recruiting - Reinvented
Hiring the right people for your company is one of the most important things you can do. There are a number of different channels to use when you're looking for new candidates, such as in-house recruitment or using a recruitment agency. But what if I told you there is a recruitment channel you may have never heard of yet, that’s more efficient, cost-effective, and guaranteed to land you the best candidate for the job!
The classical approach to outsourced recruiting
Hiring a recruiting agency that manages all the recruiting and hiring functions. These organizations usually focus solely on sourcing candidates, developing candidate databases and matching these candidates to available positions at the companies they're working with. Recruiting agencies can work with many clients at once and some choose to specialize in a specific field, such as marketing, law, c-level executives, IT, and so on.
They can be a great option for your outsourced recruiting needs but can sometimes run expensive; according to sources, fees can be as high as 30% of a new hire’s first year’s salary. So if you're hiring a software developer, whose average salary is around $120,000, that would be $36,000 in fees going into the recruitment agency’s pocket, multiply this by the number of candidates you're looking to hire and you’d easily be paying 6 figures in fees.
The other option would be to hire a recruitment team to advertise job vacancies on job boards, use your internal database to look for candidates, or rely on referrals. The only problem here is you're stuck with a fixed cost and limited resources… while its nice to have control over your own hiring team, their reach and time are going to be very limited.
