What do you gain from partnering with a talent acquisition specialist?

Posting date: 27 June 2023

The job market is more competitive than ever, with the Swiss unemployment rate the lowest in more than two decades. The strong labour market affects everyone, from the smallest café to the most powerful biotech firm. But thankfully, there is a way to overcome this obstacle and attract the top talent in your field – by working with a talent acquisition specialist.

There’s a reason why they’re more in demand than ever. If you want to attract the top talent in your field, working with a talent acquisition specialist is the right choice. They can connect you with candidates not actively looking for a new role and save you the time, energy, and cost of the initial vetting processes.

If you want to
deliver measurable business results faster than by simply advertising a role and sifting through applicants, the talent acquisition specialists at Swisslinx can transform your approach to the entire process. By taking advantage of their expertise, experience, and industry connections, you can speed up and improve onboarding without sacrificing quality.

Four benefits of working with a Talent Acquisition Specialist

Here are just four reasons you should consider working with a talent acquisition specialist to achieve your talent goals.


1.      Substantially reduce your recruitment costs

Recruitment and training are some of the most expensive parts of running a business. Nothing is worse than spending hundreds of hours vetting and training a new candidate only to find out they are not a good fit for your organisation.

Of course, turnover is inevitable. But by partnering with a talent acquisition specialist, you can tap into their expertise to make better choices and attract the most desirable candidates. From sourcing talent to onboarding, their methods,
communication of your employee benefits, and industry connections can help you attract those top-tier candidates faster than ever.

2.      Easily scale your hiring up or down, depending on business needs

Your business likely has peaks and valleys regarding recruitment, hiring, onboarding, and training. One season may be hectic, while the next few months are stagnant. Therefore, maintaining an in-house recruitment team does not make sense. After all, your internal team is unlikely to always be the right size for the tasks at hand and retaining top recruitment experts through slow periods is difficult.

That’s why many businesses choose to outsource their recruitment process to professionals. Companies like Swisslinx already have the world’s best recruiters on their teams because we can offer challenging, exciting work all year, with no slow season. In addition, you can scale your usage up or down, depending on your current requirements, and only pay for the services that you need when you need them.


3.      Improve candidate quality and retention

In-house recruitment teams often consist of a few individuals with a broad set of skills overseeing the entire recruitment process. However, they often lack the expertise that specialist recruiters gain from honing in on one niche. Their experience enables them to attract, select, and onboard the best talent.

As a result, your team quality will improve. Notably, the best talent acquisition specialists know how important culture is to any successful placement, and they can help you
hire for cultural fit. They will also ensure your team is diverse and help you provide opportunities for candidates from all backgrounds.


4.      Decrease your time-to-hire and speed up onboarding

One of your most essential recruitment metrics is time-to-hire. Decreasing time-to-hire will save you money and effort and boost your productivity. In addition to helping you find your new hires, a dedicated talent acquisition specialist can progress your recruit through the onboarding process quickly and efficiently.
