Q: My organization is in an overwhelmingly busy season, and we don’t currently have the capacity (time-wise or financially) to develop, hire, and train a new position on our team. If we don’t have budget to hire a new employee, I doubt we could pay for the additional expense of agency fees — but we really need more support. Change my mind?

A: It sounds like you’re in a really challenging situation with limited resources and a pressing need for additional support. While it may seem daunting to consider hiring or engaging with an agency given your current restraints, hiring a temporary worker could still be a great option!  

We work with many businesses that must balance operational demands with financial considerations.  

While it’s true that there are costs associated with working with an agency, it’s helpful to understand these expenses as an investment rather than just another burden — hiring a new employee is expensive, but so is having to replace employees who are burnt out from overwork or failing to meet client expectations because the team is stretched beyond their capacity.

By partnering with an agency, you gain access to a wealth of expertise and resources tailored to your specific needs. In addition to finding the perfect person to fill your temporary need, we also manage administrative responsibilities (all that onboarding paperwork 😵‍💫), ensure compliance with employment laws and regulations, and mitigate legal risks. This saves you valuable time and resources, freeing you up to focus on the things that are keeping you so busy!  

We know it can be daunting to consider outsourcing the hiring process, especially when financial constraints are a real concern. But it’s important to keep the long-term benefits in mind: leveraging the services of a staffing & recruiting agency can help you meet staffing needs while optimizing efficiency and minimizing disruptions.  

And who knows? That temporary worker might end up being your next direct hire! We have an excellent track record of finding top-notch candidates who make such meaningful and lasting contributions to a team that no one can imagine it running without them!
