Pros & cons of using a staffing agency
At one point or another, many businesses — regardless of size and industry — reach a point at which they can no longer handle all of their recruiting needs in house. For companies in this position, working with a staffing agency might seem like a perfect solution. But while staffing agencies promise the ability to save clients time, money, and effort, the truth is that they often fail to deliver on those promises (a fact that you can see reflected in staffing agencies’ dismal net promoter score of 28%). That’s why it’s so important to consider both the pros and cons of using a staffing agency before you sign on with one.
