Hiring is Getting Difficult…But We Can Help

If you’re a hiring manager attempting to find and recruit talented candidates in the 2015 labor market, you may have noticed a few recent trends. Compared to the hiring picture of 2010, 1.) rare skill sets are harder to find, 2.) overqualified applicants used to flood the landscape, but their numbers are shrinking, and 3.) candidates left waiting by the phone tend to disappear. Talented workers are no longer willing to put up with low salary offers, ten rounds of interviews, or long hiring timelines. If you’re slow with your decision, they’ll simply accept offers elsewhere.

Long story short: it’s getting rough out there for managers. But if you’re facing these challenges and you just don’t have the budget to keep up with your competitors, don’t despair. We’re here to help!

In the Staffing World, Experience Counts

When you pace your trust in the established, experienced staffing team at PSU, you’ll benefit from our extensive industry connections and the wide reach of our reputation. We source top candidates all over the country, and we know how to attract the specific types of talent you’re looking for. We also understand that you need more than talent; you’re also looking for personality and cultural alignment. We’ll listen closely to your credentials and requirements, then we’ll turn toward the marketplace and help you find the matches you need.

Professional Staffing Reduces Risk

When you choose to partner with a staffing agency, you reduce risk as well as cost and headaches. We can provide you with employee agreements on a contingency basis, and if you and the employee prove to be a mismatch over time, we can reassign the employee to another client and provide a replacement. If you love the employee and want to take her on full time, you’re free to do so as soon as the contract period ends. With this system in place, you won’t have to make a commitment before you’ve worked closely with a candidate for several weeks.

Navigating the current hiring market may seem like an uphill climb, but with the PSU staffing team on your side, you’ll have what it takes to attract, hire, and retain the most talented candidates in your search area. Contact our office today!
