For some insurance companies, it may seem unnecessary to invest in a recruiter, if they already have a hiring manager. They have the same goal; finding great talent. There is a difference with in-house recruiting and working with a firm who specializes in insurance professionals. A recruiting firm has connections, expertise, and insights into the employment market that you may not have access to through internal resources. Here are four reasons to partner with an outside firm for your next talent search.
They Know What They’re Doing
An experienced recruiter is the best resource for extensive market intelligence. They specialize in your company’s niche and know how to identify talent for the roles you need to fill. They also know how to appeal to passive candidates and assess their interest and qualifications. Recruiters have extensive experience vetting candidates, so you can trust that they won’t bring you talent that isn’t qualified. A skilled recruiter will also know how to market your employment brand and improve the overall reputation of your company.
They Know People You Don’t Know
As a leader, you know many people in the insurance industry. A recruiter, however, will know people you don’t know. They have extensive networks because they interact with many different companies and top performing professionals on a daily basis. They know who the talent is in the industry and can easily identify employees who work for other companies and would be a perfect fit in you company.
They Know Where to Go When the Most Obvious Market Has Been Covered
If you’ve posted the job opening on your company website and listed the position on every job board you can think of, and you still fail to attract the right candidate, it can feel like you’ve hit a dead end. A recruiter knows where to go once the most obvious resources have been covered. They reach in to the selectively passive candidates. People who are well-employed and aren’t looking on job boards. The best candidates aren’t looking for a new job, they
You Have a Partner Advisor
A recruiter is also useful as a partner advisor. They can help with your plans for future growth. Because most recruiters have deep experience conducting interviews, they can help with quality insight and honest feedback on potential candidates. They can also advise you on appropriate job offers. They’re experts in compensation and benefits negotiation and can help you come up with a package that is fair appealing to the candidate.
The success of your company depends on the qualifications and experience of your employees. You can’t grow without a great talent base. Retaining a recruiter is one of the best investments you can make to access the right talent and to assure your organization’s success.
