Using a staffing company to help you find candidates for direct hire, or permanent placement, has many benefits. Companies like LEAD Professional can save you time and money by using them for your direct hires.
“Whether you are looking to fill one position or secure an entire team, LEAD Professional can provide workforce solutions to match your permanent professional and skilled trade staffing needs,” says Carrie Mae Berry, managing partner and national sales manager with LEAD Professional.
What is Direct Hire?
Different from temp-to-hire, or temporary staffing, direct hire is when a staffing company recruits quality candidates for your company’s open positions. A staffing firm will handle all recruiting activity. The hiring company identifies their ideal candidate from the staffing firm’s candidate pool, makes an offer and once accepted, manages the onboarding as well.
“LEAD Professional direct hire job candidates go through a rigorous recruiting process,” says Carrie, “which gives the direct hiring company confidence in finding a great match when working with us.”
Direct Hire Staffing Benefits
A company can save hours and hours of labor-intensive recruiting activity by using a staffing company who has proven success in recruiting quality skilled candidates. The hiring company may spend weeks and months to find enough workers with the skills and experience needed to fill a job, whereas a direct hire staffing company like LEAD Professional will have a large pool of skilled candidates ready to be matched with their ideal employer. “Our reach is nationwide. LEAD Professional is supported by a team of recruiters around the country which often widens the candidate pool for the hiring company,” says Carrie. She explains, “Unlike many HR departments, we have fast access to a greater quantity of highly qualified professional and skilled trade workers seeking permanent positions.”
Carrie, who has been in the career, recruiting and staffing industry for 21 years, takes pride in LEAD’s practice of building a relationship with their clients. “It is important to understand a company’s culture and business goals in order for our recruiters to secure the best qualified candidate pool for job placement. We work with our clients to set parameters for each open position and consider the must-have skills along with the must-have characteristics a company requires in their ideal candidate,” says Carrie who has a remarkable record in securing direct hires for LEAD Professional clients in virtually every industry, including business, health care, IT, manufacturing, and more.
