Companies in a wide variety of industries turn to staffing companies to handle their hiring needs. However, not all agencies are created equal. As an employer, you need to ensure that you partner with the right staffing company.
Ultimately, the quality of the staffing firm and the knowledge and experience of its staff members have a significant impact on your results. Since that’s the case, choosing a partner strategically is essential. One way to streamline the selection process is to focus on accredited staffing companies.
If you’re wondering why working with an accredited staffing company like The Advance Group is essential, here’s what you need to know.
Why You Should Partner with an Accredited Staffing Company
Partnering with an accredited staffing firm means your company gets access to critical expertise that may otherwise be unavailable. Each credential has specific requirements in order for individuals or organizations to qualify, and only those who possess the right knowledge and skills are eligible to maintain the related certifications.
A variety of certifications are relevant to the staffing industry. However, there are two prime examples of credentials that are worth looking for when choosing a recruitment firm as a partner.
First, the Certified Staffing Professional® (CSP®) program explicitly focuses on the staffing profession. It focuses on federal labor and employment law from the perspective of the staffing industry, and it dives deeper into the topic than most alternative credentials.
Second, the HRCI Associate Professional in Human Resources® (aPHR®) is a knowledge-based credential focused on the expertise leveraged by human resources professionals. It covers a wide array of skill areas, including compliance, risk management, talent acquisition, employee relations, compensation, and professional development.
When employees in a staffing company have the credentials above, it means they’re equipped to assist companies with a wide variety of recruitment and hiring needs. As a result, partnering with an accredited staffing agency works to your advantage, ensuring any advice, guidance, and support you receive aligns with critical legal requirements and best practices, leading to better results.
