Why Outsource Recruitment?

You run a business. That means that you are responsible for every component of your company. Not only do you direct your talent and lead the hiring decisions – you also clean the toilets, do all of your accounting, study law to handle all of your legal needs, and manage your company when you’re on vacation.

Oh wait, you don’t?

One of the first things you learn when you run a successful business is that you simply cannot do it all on your own. You can’t – and shouldn’t be – an expert on everything. There are those out there that can handle tasks for you, and the more you use their expertise, the more your company will save in the long term and the more effective your company will be.

Benefits of Outsourcing Recruitment

At Recruit Shop, we work with small and medium size companies all over Australia and New Zealand. We have been recruiting top candidates at exciting startups, small family establishments, and more, and use that experience on each of our clients. These clients choose us because they know all about the benefits of outsourcing recruitment, including:

  • Lower Cost – Yes, even though recruitment “costs money,” when you add up all of the costs of recruiting in house, you’ll find that it is much greater. From posting on job boards, money paid to your employees, and the lost productivity that they could have provided on other tasks, an affordable recruitment service like Recruit Shop ends up being a bargain by comparison.
  • Little Need for Oversight – When you outsource to Recruit Shop, we keep you posted along the way, answering any questions you may have, etc. But you are also able to trust that we have started the ball rolling, because it’s our only job. It’s all we do. With employees in house, you have to check in often, review emails, make sure that whomever is in charge of hiring is taking action, and much more. It often requires even more staff, and is very time consuming.
  • Expertise – Of course, most people are not experts at recruitment either. We have a reputation for finding excellent performers that match the culture of your business, and use that expertise with each client we work with.

While many people ask why they should use outsource their recruitment, a better question is – what is the benefit of doing recruitment in house? Often you’ll find that there is no real answer.
