External Recruiters are Worth It

In the fast-paced world of running a business, cost and value are the cornerstones of every decision. When it comes to hiring new talent, the question of whether you should manage this internally versus outsourcing this to a professional, can often arise.


Beyond the Price Tag: The Hidden Costs of Doing it Yourself

While the cost of an external recruiter might be readily apparent, there are hidden costs associated with managing the recruitment process yourself.

Consider this:

  • You or Your Staff's Time: Multiply your team's or your own hourly rate by the time spent on tasks such as screening resumes, shortlisting candidates, conducting interviews, and scheduling these in. You will quickly see how these costs can add up!

  • Lost Productivity: These tasks divert your staff from their core responsibilities, impacting overall productivity.

  • The Risk of a Bad Hire: Hiring talent that meets both the technical and cultural requirements of a role, requires expertise, networks and strong consulting skills which are developed over many years. Hiring directly without this expertise, may result in a poor hiring decision which can be incredibly expensive as well as impacting the existing team morale and performance.


External Recruiters: More Than Just a Cost, An Investment

Here's how a reputable agency can actually save you money:

  • Expertise and Efficiency: External recruiters are specialists, leveraging their network and experience to find top talent quickly.

  • Reduced Time Commitment: They handle the heavy lifting of recruitment tasks, freeing up your valuable team's time for core activities.

  • Quality Control: Their expertise ensures you attract the best candidates, lowering the risk of poor hiring decisions and the associated costs.
