Identifying Candidates

Understand how the vendor locates candidates. Find out what kind of advertising the staffing company uses. Do they use newspapers, online staffing sites, social media sites like LinkedIn, or networking and job fairs? Make sure the staffing firm is getting as wide a pool of applicants as possible to ensure the best candidates are available. In addition, review the types of references and background checks that are used.

Working with a staffing vendor to hire technical support for short- or long-term projects is often a smart decision for business leaders who don’t want to put a strain on their internal staff. However, selecting a staffing firm to take on a project is a major decision – and many executives may become overwhelmed and simply select the cheapest option or one that was recommended by a friend.

In order to maximize the value of contingent IT workers, companies must ensure they have the right technical skill sets, experience and cultural fit to be successful. With this in mind, AgreeYa Solutions — a leading global provider of software, solutions and services, also specializing in providing staffing services in the areas of information technology and risk and compliance — has released seven tips that employers should consider when selecting a staffing firm.
