While in some industry sectors like manufacturing, the success of a company depends on technology and investment, in many industry sectors, the growth of a company depends on the quality of the employees. Highly skilled, motivated, hardworking and experienced employees can help the company innovate, grow faster than its competitors, increase profits despite adverse business conditions.
Hence in many industry sectors where the employees are the biggest assets, companies would like to hire the best professionals. Since direct recruitment of employees is time-consuming, the company would like to hire the best Singapore recruitment company. Some of the factors which will help hire the right recruitment company are discussed.
Usually a company has a large number of vacancies from entry level positions to top management. While it is easy to hire freshers or employees with less experience advertising online and offline, it is usually more difficult to hire employees at senior or top management levels. At the junior level, companies only require workers, and most companies realize that their employees will switch jobs if they get a better salary or compensation.
In contrast, the senior management is closely linked with the company image, and has access to confidential information regarding the company. So most top management employees will not apply for a job because if the information is leaked, their existing job may be adversely affected.
So while choosing the recruitment agency it is important to check the type of employees the agency is recruiting. Usually, the recruitment techniques for junior and middle-level employees are different compared to top management.
Usually, the recruiters specializing in top management positions, have existing relationships with potential candidates, so that the candidate can be ensured that the recruitment process will remain confidential. So based on the vacancies in the company, the right recruitment agency specializing in the specific job profiles should be hired.
In many industry sectors, the employees should have training, experience and skills in specific areas, which only those working in the industry sector are aware of. So while for low-level blue-collar jobs, not much specialization is required, for jobs in the financial, internet, information technology or healthcare sector, highly specialized staff are required.
Hence many recruitment agencies are focussing mainly on specific sectors, based on the profile of the recruiters, and the demand for employees in the particular sector. So based on the industry sector, the company should choose the recruitment agency accordingly.
Reviews and customer list
While hiring a recruitment company it is advisable to check the client list and reviews of the company. Most of the largest companies, which are well known brands, are usually only working with the best employees and using the best service providers including recruitment agencies.
So the top-rated recruitment companies will have the top Singapore companies as their clients, and will have provided recruitment services for many years. Hence checking the client list of a recruitment agency is one way to determine whether the agency is effective in getting the right candidates for their client.
