Professional staffing services have been gaining ground among employers for some time now. Yet, the industry has its fair share of critics and naysayers. What’s with the scepticism that keeps some businesses from approaching professional staffing service providers for their hiring needs?
Employers typically express their reluctance to outsource their hiring needs citing the following:
In truth, these “reasons” are more like vague apprehensions and misconceptions. Some of them are not even relevant in today’s business environment. While professional staffing is an idea whose time has come, it’s important to address the doubts that persist around the service.
For most in-house HR teams that are already bogged down with multiple tasks, focusing on such strategy development is a tough call. Invariably, the dedication required to sustain these initiatives gets diluted by various other exigencies. Engaging professional staffing services, with their expertise in talent acquisition, up-to-date recruitment technologies and large candidate databases, makes more sense under the circumstances.
Importantly, a reputed recruitment service can perform a detailed market analysis and develop a brand value for your business that will highlight the advantages of joining your organisation.
Flexi staffing is the new normal, best sourced through professional staffing service providers.
Globally, flexi staffing or gig employment is a hiring strategy that has rapidly gained ground thanks to disruptive technologies and fast-changing market conditions. Temporary workers in India’s organised sector number 1.3 million; experts predict that by 2025, 10 per cent of the entire workforce will fall in this category, moving from one job to another using the services of staffing companies.
“According to the 'Annual Flexi/Staffing Employment Trends Report: 2021' by the Indian Staffing Federation (ISF), women, youth, and high-skilled workers were positively impacted by the flexi employment market trends post the pandemic. The apex body that represents the staffing companies in India noted that temp staffing growth was witnessed in IT staffing, e-commerce, logistics, and manufacturing, irrespective of the impact of the pandemic.”
Other reports on the hike in flexi staffing cite sectors like agriculture, agrichemicals, FMCG, telecom, hospitality, healthcare and retail.
Why this trend? Today’s constantly evolving business environment throws up situations that entail quick hiring decisions or ad hoc staffing. Some recruitment-related challenges that emerge in this scenario are :
Under such circumstances, it is more cost-effective to opt for flexi staffing, an operation best handled by recruitment services that have a large worker database and can save you precious time in shortlisting appropriate candidates.
