What Does, Can, And Should a Recruitment Partner Do
Finding the right talent for your organization is a prerequisite to your company’s success. Most businesses struggle with the process, from understanding precisely the kind of candidate they need to sourcing resumes and organizing the resources required to access the largest, most diverse pool of talent. In April of this year, 57% of surveyed CEOs reported having trouble finding qualified candidates.
While those CEOs are searching, they’re distracted from other areas that need their attention. If things are going well, the need to grow the team intensifies, and the hiring problem compounds.
This is where a recruitment partner steps in. A recruitment partner is a professional outside your organization who specializes in sourcing, screening, and presenting candidates per the nuances of your hiring needs. Their primary goal is to bridge the gap between you and the talent pool, finding the right people to build with you and advance your company’s aims.
A recruitment partner can decrease your cost-per-new-hire, improve the quality of your average candidate, and foster excellence and diversity across your entire organization–while taking some serious stress off your plate. This article explores the process of leveraging that partnership and highlights the most important value-adds a partnership can bring.
Taking Sourcing Off Your Plate
The leaders we work with have a few things in common. First, they’re busy! They have competing priorities and essential responsibilities to keep their teams rowing in the same direction–toward the company's larger aims and faster than their competition. Second, they’re experts! They have deep industry knowledge in their product or service space. But trends in the labor market happen quickly, and keeping in touch with top-notch candidates, regulations, and best practices is more than a full-time job.
While you’ve been busy growing and running your business, our experts at TalentEdge have been developing our network of qualified candidates in exactly the need areas you’re experiencing. We’ve spent more than 40 years connecting with a diverse candidate pool and building our connections in specialty areas like executive, veteran, and DEI recruiting. We’ve seen candidates through full-cycle placements, and we understand what skills match well with the requirements of different roles and team dynamics. By investing deeply in talent communities, we’ve earned a trusted reputation that helps us engage talent that’s less accessible to other employers. Rochester’s top candidates trust us to deliver them to their dream roles, and it’s our daily honor to do just that.
