Top Qualities For Staffing Agencies
An agency team can invest months of time creating and fine tuning an experiential program, and working alongside the client to meet their brand goals. At that point, the staffing component becomes critical to engagement of the consumer. Not all staffing agencies are the same, so what should an agency look for?
Staffing agencies that don’t subcontract their projects don’t have to worry about not knowing who is representing their client. They are able to talk to the contractors and review past experience before booking. Agencies are also able to pay their contractors at a higher rate within the same budget since a layer is eliminated.
Recruiting & Staffing Portal
Technology is ever-changing the way we all do business. Staffing agencies should be prepared for projects both big and small, which is why recruiting and a staffing portal are important.
Every staffing agency has their own technique when it comes to a staffing portal. The best will have a portal that is easy to use and one that tracks contractors’ work experience and job performance. Through a staffing portal, agencies are able to have everything in one place and streamline the process. Once a candidate is reviewed the agency can reach out to conduct a live interview and engage with the contractor to see if they qualify for the activation.
Communication Is Key
Communication plays a key role at the beginning of an agency/client relationship. Great agencies are always communicating updates to the client when it comes to staffing for their activations. Establishing that communication will play a role in making upcoming activations successful and easier the execute.
Budgets can get tight and locations/events can be rural. Staffing agencies should want to work with their clients through both of these important matters. Transparency benefits both parties and will allow maximum impact for experiential engagements.
