4 Reasons To Use On-Demand Recruiting In A Tight Labor Market

September 2, 2021

We all know how time-consuming and costly recruiting and hiring can be. And, as many businesses start ramping up their hiring efforts once again, many recruiters are left facing a mountain of work. But, it doesn’t have to be that way. With the support of an on-demand recruiter, you can reduce the stress your internal teams face, find better candidates, and navigate your way through this tight labor market.

1. Bigger (Talent Pool)

On-Demand recruiters know where to look for candidates that you don’t. Experts in the recruiting space are well aware of the different job posting sites, discussion boards, social media platforms, and other networks where job seekers and passive candidates spend their time. And, as is often the case with third-party recruiters, they’ve developed a deep personal/professional network that can help them find the very best of the best.

In a tight labor market, you’d be better off handing the task of candidate sourcing to an #OnDemand #recruiting partner. See why this strategy will help your business thrive on @IQTalent’s latest blog:Click to Tweet

Think of your internal recruiting efforts as fishing in a small pond. Sure, you may get some bites and might land a nice catch from time to time, but it takes patience, effort, and the right settings. With an on-demand recruiter, you not only make your pond bigger, but you are tossing out multiple lines at once, giving you a bigger group from which to choose and more opportunities for a cast to land. With more fish in the pond, you’re sure to find the right candidate for your open role.

2. Better (For Your Bottom Line)

Recruiting and hiring can be costly for many organizations, especially when they are hiring for multiple roles. These costs can quickly add up and impact your bottom line. In times like these, where many businesses are looking for ways to cut expenses and save money, finding a cost-effective approach to recruiting is crucial.

Enter on-demand recruiting.

With on-demand recruiting, you turn on the service when you need it and turn it off when you don’t. This means you are only paying for the services you actually use when you need them. This method is more cost-effective than a traditional recruiting firm, where you pay a flat rate fee that charges you even during downtimes. An adaptable, professional services approach, like IQTalent Partners’ billable hours model, makes it so that every organization, regardless of budget or size, can afford to find and hire quality talent. You’ll enjoy the high-value service, and your finance department will appreciate its cost-effectiveness.

Bonus Material: Make sure you’re getting the best bang for your buck by comparing the costs of an on-demand recruiting partner versus an internal recruiting team.

3. Faster (Time-To-Fill Roles)

Who actually has time to sit down and search job boards, social media, and other career sites to sift through candidate profiles? An on-demand recruiting partner, of course! Your time is better spent interviewing candidates, onboarding your team, and acting strategically rather than sifting through endless resumes. Delegate the dirty work to your on-demand partner and spend your time getting to know the applicants before offering them a job.

When you sign on to use an on-demand recruiting service, take the time to collaborate with your partners and build out a strong candidate profile of who you’d ideally like to hire. This will help you ensure your on-demand partner is finding the right candidates and screening out the ones less fit for the role.

4. Stronger (Candidates)

On-demand recruiters are experts in a variety of industries, giving you access to untapped talent. And, as is often the case, these recruiters spend time building up their own database of strong candidates who are both active and passive job seekers. What does this mean for you?

When you invest in an on-demand recruiting strategy, you’ll find yourself with access to stronger candidates who are more qualified for the role. These top-tier candidates will better excel with the responsibilities given to them and integrate well with the culture of your company.
