Top 3 Reasons to use a Staffing Firm

Whether seeking to deliver talent for a critical project or to find a dedicated, long-term employee, partnering with a staffing firm like Morton Consulting can provide tremendous value to your organization. Here are the top 3 benefits to leveraging the services of such a firm:

  1. Cost-Effective Solutions: A staffing firm reduces hidden hiring costs, from payroll processing and administration, to benefit expenses, and unemployment claims. Operating as an extension of your internal human resources or hiring teams, a staffing firm is dedicated to using a specialized process and extensive pipeline to secure the best talent in a timely manner. In addition, a staffing firm will reduce the employment risks for the client, allowing for a test period to ensure both a performance fit and a cultural fit before making the long-term investment in an employee.
  2. Comprehensive Screening: The most successful matches are accomplished by researching the technical needs, personality, and cultural makeup of both the client and the candidate—which is often difficult without a staffing firm. In aligning the right candidate with the right opportunity, it is important to fully understand what makes each customer’s workplace unique: the actual work environment; team dynamics and chemistry; implemented technologies and methodologies; and what background investigations are required. Staffing firms take screening processes seriously through multiple phone interviews, face-to-face interviews and event technical assessments. We strive to always be certain that every candidate represented will complement the customers hiring profile.
  3. Candidate Management: Staffing firms like Morton Consulting invest in Applicant Tracking Systems to effectively and efficiently manage candidates. These systems allow for the tracking of all forms of communication—emails, phone calls and meetings—in order to remain connected with the best talent. Therefore, when customer calls with an urgent need, the staffing firm has the ability to deliver. And after a successful placement is accomplished, it is critical to ensure long-term satisfaction by maintaining frequent contact with both the employee and the client.


At Morton Consulting, we dedicate ourselves to these three valuable services with the sole mindset to provide you with one important benefit—a successful match.
