Hiring is one of the most important decisions that a business can make: the right hire can amplify performance and transform a business, while the wrong one can be a drag on growth for months or years to come. Unfortunately, finding the right candidate isn't always easy. In a job market that changes constantly, finding, screening, and onboarding a candidate is a costly and time-consuming process. At 24 Seven, we help world-class brands find and hire the right top talent in a range of industries, and we've seen time and again that there's an unexpected ROI to using a creative staffing agency when hiring new employees.

How Recruitment Agencies Generate ROI

We understand how this may sound counterintuitive. The hiring process can already get expensive, so how would paying for a creative staff agency generate a positive ROI?

Save time on the interview process

In the long run, working with a recruitment agency is the smarter, more cost-effective choice. Engaging a creative staffing agency means you'll never waste time interviewing unfit candidates. Recruiting agencies perform extensive screenings and interviews of talent pools, ensuring top-level talent that are a good match with the role and company. This means you avoid the time suck of sifting through countless resumes of unqualified candidates.

Onboard with ease

Working with a creative staffing agency will also make the onboarding process easier. Top-of-the-line creative freelancers and professionals are able to hit the ground running. There's always a learning curve, but you'll spend less time & resources on training, helping you see results and ROI faster. And many staffing agencies, like 24 Seven, handle the payroll for freelancers saving you a headache.

Successful match

Engaging a creative recruitment agency means you can feel confident in the candidate you hire. While all companies try their best to properly screen employees, the interview process is notoriously unreliable, and it's always possible to make a bad hire – something that can easily cost your business tens of thousands of dollars and months of lost productivity. At 24 Seven, we are connected to top digital marketing talent and get to know our candidates from both a skill and cultural perspective. We're able to match in-demand freelance talent with open roles more quickly and successfully because we already have a sense of who's available and what they're looking for.

Save Money

Believe it or not, working with a staffing agency can actually save you money in the long run. During the entire hiring process, as well as during onboarding, we ask for your feedback and thoughts on talent and ensure that no bad hires are made. This includes making sure candidates are fully screened, they are a culture fit, and they have all of the hard and soft skills needed to succeed on your team.
