By Josephine Pennington


Human resource is one of the factors of production. For a company to function optimally and profitably, employees must be able to complete tasks competently and within set time lines. Unsuitably trained or unqualified staff lower the human capital value of an organization and they can derail its success and growth. While every employee has a role to play, it is executives who set the pace and standards for those who work under them. It is therefore very important that these positions are filled by the best and the best way to do this is by engaging an executive recruiting agency.

Agencies always have a pool of qualified, experienced candidates. They also have experience and a good understanding of what employers and employees need which enables them to make perfect matches.In addition, agencies always stay on top of local, regional and international trends in the labor market and can advice on pay packages.

Reduced costs is another benefit of using recruitment agencies. This is a big advantages that motivates companies to outsource this function. A good amount of money can be saved when a company does not have to spend time and money advertising vacant positions in various media and conducting interviews. Companies also spare themselves the expense of carrying out background checks.

Outsourcing staff recruitment leaves an organization can concentrate on its core activities. They can also focus on branch outing in different locations, expand the range of services and products they offer. An organization can also concentrate on its other areas such as community service activities.

Another advantage is that it takes a much shorter time to fill vacancies. The agency can immediately gets to finding a suitable candidate from their database without having to first advertise the position. An employer also has better chances of finding not just a suitable person to fill a vacancy but one who will stay with them so that there are not soon having to fill the same vacancy.

This is because agencies who fill executive positions are very careful to select candidates not only according to their qualifications and experience but their personal goals and needs to ensure job fit. An agency will take the time and trouble to go deep into the employment history of an applicant and factor in their aspirations. They will therefore pick an executive who is not only qualified but who fits the job in terms of what a company aspires to and what they aspire to.

Vetting is very important. An agency will also take the time to look into the background of an applicant. In the high tech world of today with high rates of white collar crime including fraud and identity theft, it is very important that the executives that a company hires have clean backgrounds. Executives with spotted backgrounds can cost a company a lot should the leak confidential information or use it to personally benefit themselves.

Another advantage is that companies can get short term staff without complications. For instance, the tax season is often hectic for most companies and even individuals.Companies need extra hands to deal with these. An agency can fill such short term positions for them on contract basis and when the job is done, the staff can leave without complications to do with benefits and contract termination compensation.
