Hiring Top Talent is Hard: Why You Should Partner with a Recruiter

By Jeff Herzog, President, FPC National

As most employers understand, the primary driver of business success is building and retaining a high-performing team. And while the pandemic has created a larger pool of talent, the critical task of identifying and selecting the right individuals has become more daunting and challenging than ever.

Companies can eliminate much of the frustration and uncertainty in the talent acquisition process by working with a professional recruiting agency. Experienced agencies have the expertise and professional network meet your staffing objectives.

Benefits of Working with a Recruiter

Why work with a recruiter instead of doing it alone? Here are a few reasons:

  • Vast Network: Recruiters have cultivated an extensive network of professional contacts in specific industries. They are able to tap into a robust talent pool to find the perfect fit for your company.
  • Expertise: You can be sure that recommended candidates are carefully vetted and that they possess the qualifications required to meet the challenges and objectives of your open positions.
  • Efficiency: Because experienced recruiters have placed thousands of candidates, they are able to streamline the process and identify top talent efficiently and methodically.
  • Support: Recruiters serve as professional talent acquisition advisors to your company, providing guidance throughout the recruiting process.

What to Look for in a Recruiter

It’s important to select a recruiter with extensive experience, a large network of recruiters, and a proven track record. Here are a few reasons FPC stands alone with it comes to excellence in recruiting:

Relationship-Focused Business Model

Since FPC’s start in 1959, we have built our business with a relationship-focused business model. We understand that our clients are more than just job requisitions, our candidates are more than just resumes, and our recruiters are more than just employees. Our motto, “It’s all about the people,” defines our mission perfectly: We are in the business of changing people’s lives for the better.

Our client relationships are strategic, rather than transactional. We strive to be your trusted partner for workforce development, and not simply a one-time solution to fill a current opening.

National Presence

With more than 65 offices throughout the nation, FPC has built an extensive network consisting of hundreds of recruiters to support our valued client base. While each client works exclusively with an individual office and recruiter, they enjoy the benefit of drawing from a larger talent pool and a robust network of experienced professionals.

Through our “Exchange Placements” program, our recruiters work collaboratively with each other to ensure that clients have access to the very best talent in every industry. While most agencies offer selections from a small, local pool of candidates, FPC is able to provide employers with the cream of the crop from across the country.

Personalized Process

Our recruiters are trained to go beyond the job description to find the ideal candidate for each client. The process begins with an in-depth needs analysis to identify your functional requirements, company culture, challenges, and strategic business objectives. We then develop a comprehensive recruitment strategy to ensure your needs are met.

We match you with high-performing individuals who seamlessly acclimate to your culture, deliver exceptional and consistent results, and continue to be a valuable asset to your company for years to come.
