Easy tips on finding the right agency for all your staffing needs

by Gibbs Consulting HR Search Firms Boston

Are you giving thought to hire the services of a staffing agency? With the steep competition in the market, locating one will not take much effort, but how can you be assured that the agency you opt for will render an excellent quality of service? Here are a few things you should look for when selecting an agency.

Conduct a bit of research

The first thing you need to do is obtain a list of agencies near you. For example, if your business is in Boston, get hold of a list of companies offering services of HR recruiting in Boston. You can turn to Google for that purpose. Once you come across a relevant company, visit their website (if they have one) and look for the services they offer. The goal here is to make certain that the agency specializes in staffing professionals in your line of work.

Get a quotation

After you have gathered the necessary information, it is time to call each agency and get a rate quote. See to it that all charges are made known to you and there are no hidden fees. You may naturally be drawn in the direction of agencies with low bill rates but just because an agency is cheap does not imply that they will be able to offer the level of service you need. On the other hand, be on your guard for agencies quoting enormously steep rates.

Billing terms and agreements

Once you are satisfied with the fees, look over the agency's contract and billing/invoicing terms. Agencies normally bill their clients on a weekly basis, so check to make sure that you can make a monthly payment without the risk of being charged for late payment. 

Obtain a sample contract

Before you make a final decision, ask the HR staffing agency for a sample contract. Read the contract carefully or better yet, have someone in your legal department review it. In your selection process, it might be a good idea to consider the selection of a staffing firm that has moderate bill rates and a fair buyout fee, so you may want to pay specific attention to those areas.

Selecting a staffing agency that not only meets your needs but also provides your organization with qualified professionals will prove to be beneficial for your business without the nuisances generally associated with your business's selection process.
