Myth: Contract recruiting isn’t my business model.
Fact: Contract recruiting can work alongside your current model!
Ben Franklin said it best: “When you’re finished changing, you’re finished.” With Staffing Industry Analysts (SIA) reporting an evolving demand for total talent acquisition across organizations, direct-hire recruiting is now only a piece of the talent-market puzzle.
Furthermore, a study from The Adecco Group notes that on average, contractors have more formal education—with 73% of participants reporting have a high education degree or qualification. Bottom line: recruitment needs are changing, and in order to stay relevant while finding the best talent, it is important to change with it.
This is not to say contract recruiting has to replace your current business model; by working concurrently with your direct-hire model, contract recruiting can serve to supplement your current services and demonstrate flexibility. With People 2.0 as your partner, we can help you extend into these additional services—adding recurring revenue and helping you become a true one-stop-shop for all of your clients’ recruiting needs.
