Need to Hire? Creative Staffing Agencies Can Help

Here are five reasons why a creative staffing agency can make job-filling easier:

Industry and local market expertise. Creative recruiters understand the industry inside and out, not to mention the local markets they serve. In fact, many of TCG’s creative recruiters used to work in the industry as designers, writers, marketers and more. This background gives our creative recruiters unparalleled insight into candidates’ abilities as well as how those skill sets can meet your specific business needs.
Access to a breadth of top candidates. Creative recruiters focus on building extensive pools of creative talent. You may write the best job description, but are you certain it’s reaching the best candidates? With a creative staffing agency, you have access to a wide range of potential hires that may otherwise never have seen your job opening. In addition, creative recruiters reach professionals who aren’t actively looking for a job, but may be interested if the right opportunity is presented to them.
Cost. Employee turnover costs can be high. Did you know that the cost of a bad hire can equal 30 percent of that person’s initial-year salary? Knowing how much a bad hire can set you back financially makes it worth your while to ensure the candidates you do bring on work out.
Time. Time is money, especially when you think about the opportunity cost of evaluating resumes and portfolios, and then comparing candidates’ skills and experience levels. Save yourself this time. Instead, spend it on leading your team and focusing on business initiatives.
Flexibility. Quick access to creative freelancers allows you the flexibility to staff up or down to meet business needs. Maintaining that perfect equilibrium on your team is tricky, but it’s that much easier when you rely on a creative staffing agency to help you bring on temporary workers when project demands require it.
