I was talking with our accountant this week when he told me that they had just hired a new staff member in their office and how much time and energy went into finding the right person. In the middle of our discussion he told me that he didn’t know about Availability’s Permanent Placement (Direct Hire) Service. That made me think that this would be a good time to lay out the benefits of using a service like Availability for filling your permanent job openings.
When a company is hiring on their own it can be a costly and time consuming process to find the right person to fill a position. Often the process can overwhelm the resources of the office. The decision to manage this process internally or to partner with a firm such as Availability often comes down to one issue – cost.
When calculating the cost to hire it is important to include several factors:
Sourcing – The cost to source a candidate will likely include the cost of print or online job board advertising, job fairs, referral programs, etc.
Screening – These are costs in dollars and time that your internal staff expends to source and screen oftentimes hundreds of resumes.
Interviewing – The cost of your staff conducting phone interviews as well as the time they spend away from their core responsibilities preparing for and conducting face-to-face interviews with candidates who may or may not be a good fit.
Testing – the cost to assess a candidates skills, abilities, aptitude, attitude, etc.
Hiring – the cost of negotiations, background checks, reference checks and drug screens, etc.
In addition to the above there are other variable costs such as the time it takes to fill the position and the risk of hiring the “wrong” person and having to start the process all over again.
Utilizing a partner such as Availability allows you and your staff to focus your time and resources on the aspects of the business that make the business money - the core aspects – while Availability manages the search for your qualified candidates.
We present for your review only those candidates that are qualified for your position based on your specific requirements – including salary level.
Availability already has one of the best pricing plans in the industry and NOW through the month of March we are offering a 5% invoice discount on permanent placements.
There are no fees to you unless you hire one of our candidates – and all placements are backed by our satisfaction guarantee. You have nothing to lose.
