Temp Agency in PA Helps Midsize Companies With Hiring

Posted by Kelli McCallion on Jun 14, 2016 9:13:09 PM

Hiring for your small to midsize company can be extremely difficult. You have a lot to offer your employees, but can't compete with the fancy perks (and large budgets) that much larger corporations offer. According to Staffing Industry Analysis, HR Generalists and Recruiters are unhappy with the results they are receiving from their online job postings. This has led to an increase in social media recruiting. In fact, 92% of HR professionals reported they rely on social media for recruiting purposes. Successful recruiting on social media requires you to have a strong knowledge of the social media platform, such as LinkedIn and Facebook. This can be very time consuming for those who already have a heavy workload, especially if you are not savvy on social media. Midsize companies have also reported that they lack budgets for adequate job advertising, have lower budgets for competitive compensation for new employees, experience difficulty writing job descriptions, and can't afford a big enough (if any) recruiting staff to keep up with their growing needs. If you are experiencing any of these issues, McCallion may be able to help. McCallion Staffing is a temp agency in PA who specializes in helping you with your temporary, temporary-to-hire and permanent recruitment needs. We utilize many different recruitment methods and guarantee all of our placements! Learn more about us, or click here for a free consultation with one of our Account Managers.
