In the dynamic, fast-paced hiring landscape, industrial leaders need to take every advantage they can get to improve their staffing results. Unfortunately, a slew of misconceptions surrounding the outsourcing of industrial hiring has cast a shadow on what could be a game-changing strategy. Debunking these common myths can reveal how your hiring strategy can be transformed by saving time, money, and resources while improving the outcome.

Loss of Control

One of the most pervasive myths about outsourced hiring is a loss of control. Offloading your hiring needs doesn’t mean you’re handing over the reins. A staffing company is more of a specialized partner with a singular focus on getting you the best candidates possible. Project leaders will remain at the helm by giving detailed guidance on what they need and maintaining the final say.

Cookie-Cutter Approach

Outsourcing is often viewed as a cookie-cutter approach only providing project managers with a single type of candidate. Any industrial staffer worth their salt provides fully custom-tailored hiring solutions to meet your business’s specific needs including budget, timeline, experience, skills, and even personality. It’s your job to provide as much information as you can about what you’re looking for.

Blind to Culture

You’ve worked hard to develop a close-knit team with a unique culture. The last thing you need is a mismatched hire to disrupt that camaraderie and connection. Industrial staffers who know what they’re doing will take the time to find candidates that align with your company’s ethos for seamless integration and smooth operations. The result is a stronger, more capable team with the increased ability to take on more projects and get more done.

Impersonal Service

Worried about becoming just another number? Don’t be! Reputable industrial staffers have a passion for the community and have a genuine interest in helping your company succeed through successful hires. The key is to work with smaller outfits with the capacity and desire to offer a custom-tailored approach to your specific needs. Your satisfaction is the top priority for worthwhile staffers. Don’t accept anything less.

Financial Loss

Hiring consumes a big chunk of construction budgeting no matter how you slice it. However, that doesn’t automatically mean that outsourcing your hiring is going to wreck you financially. In fact, outsourcing can save you money in the long run by eliminating the costs of bad hires, streamlining the onboarding process, and allowing construction leaders to focus on more pressing work.

A long, drawn-out hiring process is an understandable fear among project managers. However, it’s an ironic concern given staffing experts have the resources and experience necessary to make quality hires faster than industrial leaders with a million things on their plates. These hiring pros have access to a vast pool of talented and ready-to-work candidates. Plus, they have a streamlined and uniform hiring process to ensure they’re ready to contribute quickly.

High Turnover Rates

There’s an assumption that candidates coming from staffing professionals are likely to result in higher turnover rates. The exact opposite is true. Outsourcing your hiring efforts to an industrial expert can lead to lower turnover rates, reduced hiring costs, and improved job satisfaction. By lining up an industrial company’s objectives with those of highly qualified candidates the result is a more harmonious, productive, and enduring employment relationship.
