When a company is looking for new employees, for example for a new position in the company or because an employee has left, a company can approach it in several ways. For example, a company can look for new staff themselves. Sometimes a company is large enough to have an HR department. That department then handles the entire process, from recruiting suitable candidates to hiring the right staff. Sometimes this is easier said than done, especially in sectors where the demand for work exceeds its supply, such as the technical sector. Technical employees are hard to find, so sometimes companies cannot get their staff by themselves. In that case, they can hire a recruitment agency such as Konekta Group to take over the search task.
When a company starts working with a recruitment and selection agency, orientation meetings first take place to agree on the company's requirements. The company states what kind of personnel they are looking for, what these employees should be qualified for and how the employees will be compensated for their work. After that, recruitment agencies such as Konekta Group start looking for suitable candidates who fit the profile a company has outlined. This search is conducted by recruiters, who contact prospective job seekers in various ways, both in the Netherlands and abroad. Once the potential candidates are found, an interview is held with the candidates from the agency to propose the most suitable employees to the company. If the company is satisfied with the suggested candidates, for example, by doing an interview round themselves, the recruitment agency usually receives a placement fee. If no suitable candidate is provided, a company usually does not have to pay the agency.
When a company chooses to use a recruitment and selection agency, it is usually because the company itself does not have the resources to take control of the interview process themselves. So it is time efficient for the company to outsource most of the process. As a result, only the final step in the application process needs to be done by the company itself. Another advantage of recruiting through an agency is the expertise and network. In some industries, finding staff is challenging, so outsourcing that challenge is the best option both in time and possibly money.
