Talent and Skills: Get it Right With Competent Recruitment Agencies

job interview

In a 2017 research, UK companies were losing approximately up to £15,000 because of bad hiring decisions. The recruitment process is an expensive undertaking that costs most UK companies around £5,000 for each recruit.

The costs get higher if the recruitment process settled on the wrong candidate, with increased staff turnover, financial loss, decreased productivity and low morale being the unavoidable consequences.

Emerging Trends

The emergence of professional recruitment agencies in the UK has reduced the exposure to bad recruitment. The agencies pursue a screening strategy that seeks to tap the best talent from around the globe to match and uplift company standards regarding productivity, job satisfaction and employee branding.

From new graduates to CFO’s, clerks to human resource directors, and receptionists to operations directors, these agencies will get you the perfect match.

Cost Per Hire

Many UK firms spend between £5000 and £20,000 during a recruitment process. Recruitment agencies have helped lessen this burden to less than £5,000, as they maintain a great pool of talent. Since they are actively looking for the best talent, they always have a few professionals fit for your needs.

Investing for the Future

Filling a vacancy is not the most important thing. Recruitment agencies help you invest for the future by focusing on candidates with skills and expertise to usher your company to the next generation.

Whereas finance recruiting focuses on financial skills, a recruitment agency will go for a candidate with excellent computer and multi-lingual skills to meet future demands.

Recruitment agencies are the new frontier to getting top-notch hires. The agencies employ big data analysis, skills assessment tools and integrated application tracking systems to sift the best talent from the pool.

Further, they have gone an extra step to use job boards to reach out to more talent and expand their talent list.
