How Staffing Agencies Help Startups

These days, technology startups are cropping up everywhere. Entrepreneurs are striking out on their own and partnering up to create new businesses and innovative solutions in the industry.

Although starting a new business isn’t easy and requires a lot of work, many entrepreneurs are rolling-up their sleeves, sticking to it, and finding the process to be rewarding and fulfilling.

When “starting-up,” you’ll need to have a solid game plan, backing capital, and the patience of a monk before the ROI rolls in.  For many organizations, however, the biggest hurdle is finding the right people to bring into the business early on who can hang in there for the long haul.

This is where staffing agencies come in handy, and in the tech world, finding a solid staffing firm that specializes in finding talent will help streamline and speed up the process.

If you’re the head of a start-up company or small business in the technology sector, you’re likely experiencing the “octopus effect” -  wearing many hats, hands in every pot, sometimes struggling to juggle all of the tactical and practical components of running a company. From financial considerations to managing operations, finding and hiring talent can take many hours, days, weeks even months, which can slow down your progress.

Staffing agencies free-up your time, a different kind of ROI. Using a staffing agency will return to you precious, invaluable time that you can reinvest in your business development efforts.

So, how do you find a great staffing firm who can help to find you the right fit for your organization? Here are a few tips:


Thoroughly research staffing organizations that can best serve your organization. You want to find an agency that offers a personal touch -  account managers who tailor their services to suit your needs and work closely with you find the right talent.  


Finding candidates to fill open positions is no small task. This process often involves a thorough vetting and interview process. This is where patience - again - comes in handy. While finding the best candidate may take a little time, staffing firms can considerably speed up the process.

Be Specific

When working with a staffing agency, it’s important to be clear on who you want to work  for your company. Prefer a recent grad? Need an industry veteran?  Providing as many specific details to your agency will help your staffing managers find your ideal new hire.

Most of all, it’s important to remember that working with a staffing agency is doing much more than taking a few things off your plate: it’s working in a partnership with hiring experts who are as invested in your success as you are!
