It’s not easy for small businesses when it comes to hiring. The time and costs involved with hiring can be significant.
It also doesn’t help that qualified candidates are getting harder and harder to find these days.
Here are 3 strengths Recruiters have that small businesses lack when it comes to the hiring process.
Time - The hiring process is very time-consuming. First, you need to figure out where your prospective candidates are hanging out. Then you need to create a plan to attract them, talk with them and hopefully interest them in the opportunity. Small business owners typically don't have 20 to 30 hours a week to dedicate to these tasks, however, a Recruiter does.
Tools: Recruiters have access to a variety of tools and technology, which can be costly at times, allowing them to search and find individuals to reach out to. Small businesses most likely do not have access to these tools and it's easier to have a recruiter than someone on your team to weed through hundreds of resumes and profiles daily.
Expertise: In my experience, most HR professionals and Small Business Owners usually don't enjoy the recruiting process as well as not having the expertise in recruiting individuals. You are limiting your opportunity in finding a quality hire when the task is given to someone who isn't trained properly on recruiting.
