Hiring is a full-time job in itself, but you have plenty of other responsibilities on your plate. Even after you find the right person for the job, you’re still likely up to your elbows in paperwork. However, it doesn’t have to be like that.
You might not realize it, but you can work with a back-office support solutions vendor to ease the stress of hiring. Let them handle the bulk of your paperwork, while you focus on running your business. Here’s a look at what you have to gain by taking this step.
Three Reasons to Partner With a Back Office Support Vendor When Hiring
A slow hiring process is never a good thing. In the interim, productivity takes a hit and you risk losing your top choice candidate to another employer. However, this can sometimes feel unavoidable when you have competing priorities on your plate.
Thankfully, this can easily be a non-issue by teaming up with a back-office support vendor. They’ll handle tasks like candidate background/drug screening, employee onboarding, and I-9 compliance — including E-Verify — so you can hire quickly, without neglecting your other obligations.
Hiring a new employee isn’t cheap. Specific costs vary by position and company, but each person you bring on board is certainly an investment. Working with a back-office support vendor can save you money in multiple ways, including helping you thoroughly vet all candidates.
For example, if you’re in a rush to hire during your busy season, you might feel like you need to relax your screening process just to get a candidate in place. However, when you team up with a back-office support vendor, they can handle the candidate background/drug screening for you — and fast — so you can hire quickly without choosing someone with red flags you could’ve easily uncovered.
A back-office support vendor can also serve as your employer of record, potentially saving you thousands of dollars per worker. For example, if you have at least 100 workers to outsource, ECS could save your company more than one million dollars per year.
Focus on Finding the Right Fit
Choosing the best person for the job isn’t easy. A back-office support vendor can help you streamline your hiring process, so you can spend more time finding your ideal hire. Delegate tasks like employee onboarding paperwork and background screening to them, so you can concentrate on recruiting, interviewing, and making the best possible choice for your team.
