Are you thinking about hiring HR consulting firms? Working with one of these skilled firms can help save your company time and money in the hiring and employee retention processes, so you can focus more energy on tasks that affect the bottom line.
Below are some benefits of using HR consulting firms in your company today.
First, one of these experienced HR firms offers comprehensive recruiting services. When you have HR consultants working for you, they are completely dedicated to get your company qualified and talented people.
If you consider the fact that more than $11 billion is lost per year because of employee turnover, you know that it is usually beneficial to keep employees in the fold as much as possible.
Also, the HR consultant’s entire business is focused on bringing in the best and most qualified candidates for your positions. You don’t need to spend your time doing classified ads, sorting through resumes or screening people out.
Every week or so, your consultant will send you a list of qualified candidates for your position, complete with their resume. Most of the screening has already been done for you.
You can spend less time on hiring the employee so you can tend to other parts of your business.
Second, your consultant can devise a customized training schedule for your new hires. That way, when the new person comes in, there is a program in place to get the new hire trained and oriented.
The consultant also can re-educate workers who have worked for the company for years.
Third, using a consultant gives you a new perspective. An outside HR professional can come into your business, look around, and give you valuable feedback about how you can improve your business.
The consultant can send you candidates who are trained in the latest types of systems and software, as well as other changes in the marketplace.
Most business owners who use an HR consultant to do their hiring and retention usually wish that they had done it much sooner.
Imagine having all of the stress about bringing in the right person off your shoulders. All you need to do is interview the candidates the company sends you, and you can make a decision quickly.
Now that you know the benefits of working with an HR consultant, why would you want to continue to handle your HR duties yourself?
