How Can We Be a Human Resource or Staffing Support to Your Company?
According to the Merriam-Webster Dictionary, “staff' is a verb that means ‘to supply with a staff or with workers.”
When you think of a Staffing Agency, what do you think of?
Are you on the staffing client end of the relationship where you are responsible for working with an agency to ensure your production needs are met through a well-trained, reliable workforce? Are you a manager or business owner considering whether to use an agency or not to support your current or upcoming staffing needs? Or are you on the other end of the equation where you’re the applicant using a staffing agency to help you find a job where you can gain experience and be successful? Over here at Your Employment Solutions, we are the common denominator in each of the questions posed here. We call that common denominator ‘Human Resources’ or ‘staffing’; to us, it’s one-in-the-same.
Going back to the dictionary, Merriam-Webster defines Human Resources as “a department within an organization that deals with the people who work for that organization.” With a staffing agency providing workers to their clients, I dare to consider them as the HR Department for companies who otherwise lack one, an HR extension or support center for those who already do have an HR department, and I also consider a staffing agency as an HR Department in and of themselves because they recruit and manage the human capital for themselves, as well as their clients.
The Staffing Human Resources Puzzle
There’s another piece to the puzzle though; if Human Resources are those who ‘deal with the people who work’ at the company, aren’t all supervisors and managers considered part of HR then? I would argue so! It’s not enough to simply hire talented and qualified workers. Companies must invest in them through proper on-boarding procedures, support them through training and development, and offer them compensation and benefits that are fair for the work they provide. Often times if any of these are missing from the equation or aren’t given much effort or attention, companies see an increase in turnover and a struggle to recruit the talent they need.
In a sense, everybody is part of Human Resources, but not everybody is knowledgeable or comfortable with being considered a part of Human Resources. Sometimes we need help.
So how can staffing agencies support your HR needs?
