What is retained recruiting? Is it a good option for my company?10/2/2019
With the competition for good workers at a fever pitch, you may have started to hear about retained recruiting. This
service is an innovative and customizable take on the traditional contingent staffing model, and it’s particularly useful for smaller companies and not-for-profits, whether they have HR staff or not. Other larger companies can use retained recruiting for high application volume. For a flat monthly fee, an experienced recruiter will place the right candidates in front of hiring managers. In a retained recruiting arrangement, there is a single payment –
regardless of the advertised position’s salary or the number of jobs to fill. To evaluate whether retained recruiting is a good fit for you, consider your upcoming hiring needs – if you are likely to see multiple positions open, if you anticipate modest turnover or high application volume, or even if your recruiter is taking a parental leave, it may be worth exploring how a customized retained recruiting option might be designed for your business.
