A Guide to Hiring Recruitment Firms

Hiring the right employees for any size company can be extremely difficult and very time-consuming.

Nevertheless, recruiting top workers should be a priority for every firm — and your company should be no different.

Since staffing talent can take significant effort and internal HR costs can prove expensive, many organizations use a recruitment company.

As an employer, if you’re considering this route, the following guide should help you:

Reasons Companies Use Recruiters

There are a few circumstances in which your company could utilize recruiting services. Most often, employers use recruiters when one or more of the following is the case:

Typical Recruitment Fees

“When looking for a recruitment firm, you should not cut corners when it comes to fees. You get what you pay for. If a few extra thousand dollars in recruitment costs means better employees, it’s well worth it,” says CEO of KAS Recruitment, Ken Sundheim.

Mainly, recruiters charge their clients in two ways: retained and contingency staffing agreements.  There are pros and cons to both.  Our recruiters suggest you do your research and make a decision that is best for your organization.
