You Didn’t Start a Company in Order to be a Staffing Specialist, Did You?
Sure, you’re a highly capable person, able to review resumes, interview applicants, handle hiring paperwork, and so on. But think of the many other ways you could build your company if you could delegate staffing tasks to someone else. Staffing companies exist to handle what busy entrepreneurs simply cannot prioritize such as screening and finding employees. “It’s our job,” says Michael Brown, Operations Manager of MCS Recruitment. “It’s why we see ourselves as business partners with our clients. That is, to perform the tasks for our clients that they simply don’t have the time for. Thus, we become an extension of their organization.”
With that partnership viewpoint in mind, a staffing firm that utilizes recruiting practices could prove to be a valuable asset, when it’s recognized that there is more to the industry than just providing hourly, seasonal, or part-time wage earners. In fact, did you know that:
• 13% of all labor in the United States is placed by a staffing company
• More than 10 million people worked for staffing in 2015
• 79% of staffing agency employees work full time nationwide (MCS Recruitment’s average hours worked per week per employee is currently 38.4 hours)
• MCS Recruitment’s average annual earnings per employee in 2015 was $35, 658
MCS Recruitment is a staffing company with offices in Savannah, Georgia and Greenville, South Carolina. They source talent for a wide variety of industries, many of which may not be top of mind for someone considering a staffing firm. In fact, 48% of their employees work in an industrial setting and nearly 20% fulfill needs in engineering and scientific sectors.
