Staffing is a term that is closely related to recruitment and hiring. Recruit and Hiring are terms that fall under the large umbrella which is HR Management. HR Management is the division within an organization that takes care of a large number of functions such as hiring candidates after a series of strenuous examinations to vet and select candidates based on their skills and expertise and for those who would fit into an organization’s expectation.
A staffing agency is a team of recruiters who can do this job for an organization. Technical Staffing Agency helps in taking care of the selection, screening, vetting, and interviewing of technical candidates for technical-based roles in large or smaller companies globally. These agencies are able to fulfill the manpower requirement of a particular company on a flexible basis and are able to provide more than just picking out candidates and placing them in the clients’ company.
Tech staffing refers to the process of filling jobs that have technical employees such as those who work on Data Servers, Coding, Cloud Computing, Software Development, Data Analysis Science, Application development, ERP development, etc. These kinds of technical roles require employees who are well versed in the various technical skills which include the knowledge of various coding languages, operating systems, application development skills, Testing skills, Network oriented skills, Data encryption skills, etc. There is a plethora of software and application-related jobs out there in the market and 1000+ companies worldwide who are constantly looking for some or the other talent to fulfill a particular position. All a staffing agency has to do is to connect the right person with the right job.
As easy as it may sound, it is quite a challenging task in itself. The Recruitment team of any organization has to be constantly aware of the best candidates in the market, especially for the high-end coveted positions in the organization. Using market intelligence, the recruiter must be able to pull up candidates as and when required by the company. This demand for employees may change periodically based on the number of projects, the economy, etc and the job of a recruiting team is to accommodate these changes and find the employees as and when needed.
A Technical staffing agency can take over the recruitment and hiring part of the HR division completely and be able to provide the best talents in the market on demand. They have the ability to stay connected with candidates in the market and even connect with passive candidates who are not even on the market explicitly. Below are some of the benefits at a glance:
As explained earlier, a staffing agency knows exactly which database to use for what positions and can even pull up candidates who are passively looking to switch jobs only when the right opportunity comes
Just like how the economy and the demands of a company change, similarly the staffing agency can easily adapt to the changing requirements of the organization when it comes to manpower requirement
They not only pick candidates but can also formulate the right ways to test the qualities and skills of the candidates, screen them, interview them, negotiate with them and ultimately hire them in cognizance with the client company. They also work toward curbing attrition post-training and placement
