(Tampa, Florida) Pew Research reports more than half of Americans use the internet when searching for a job, and 46 percent apply for jobs online. Companies failing to make use of this valuable tool may find they are missing out on the best talent in their industry. Furthermore, social media plays a large role in recruitment, yet many companies aren’t making the most of this resource. For these and numerous other reasons, many organizations now opt to work with a reliable staffing agency, one dedicated to finding the right talent for each position.
“Knowing where to turn to find the right person isn’t easy. For some industries, a newsletter may be the answer, yet others need to look to a network of professionals in the field. Putting a Hiring sign out front doesn’t work anymore, yet some companies still rely on this method. When companies turn to us, they know we understand the value of building relationships with clients and always put quality first when searching for a candidate for a position,” the staff at Crawford Thomas Recruiting ( explains.
The LinkedIn Global Recruiting Trends 2016 Report states the time-to-fill metric is more important than it was in the past, and 45 percent of employers report that it now takes more time to fill open positions, as stated by DHI.

We work hard to have you come back to us any time a new position needs to be filled, not the same one again and again,” staff members state.
The Gallup Workforce Panel found 51 percent of employees were considering a new job in November, 2015. Companies need to understand this also and work to retain employees. A large part of this is finding the right person for the job, but it goes further than this. Candidates for a job and current employees need to be treated fairly. If they aren’t, they won’t stay. Furthermore, if a company has a bad reputation, 11 percent of job seekers, including those who are unemployed, would not work for the company.
“With so many factors involved in finding the right talent, it’s no wonder help is needed. Few organizations have the workforce in place to sort through resumes every time a new position opens, thanks in part …
