Do you know the pros and cons of hiring employees through a San Diego/Los Angeles domestic staffing agency versus DIY hiring? Letting someone into your home can be very vulnerable. At Seaside we fully acknowledge this and want you to feel as comfortable as possible with this process. This article will go over everything you need to know to make an informed decision.
Domestic Staff Agency
Letting a staffing agency manage your employee search can result in saving you time, energy, and money. Letting an agency take over this process helps relieve pressure on your end from finding staff and in turn, allows you to be more productive in the meantime. Agency’s spend hours if not days vetting candidates. They check and double-check references, run background checks, conduct interviews, and take care of all paperwork and legal documents leaving you stress free. Additionally agencies have access to industry databases and professional networks allowing them to find the highest standard employee that fits all your wants and needs. Lastly, agencies stay involved long after a candidate is hired. When you work with an agency, you are able to have them as a helpful resource down the road if needed. At Seaside Staffing Company, you have access to our staff members after hours and on the weekends!
As for every good thing comes a few downsides. In regards to using a San Diego/Los Angeles domestic staffing agency, some control of your hiring process is lost. You know the personality and characteristics you want best. Therefore, we recommend clearly communicating with the agency your exact wants and needs.
DIY hiring leaves everything onto you. You are responsible for finding an employee, the interview process, vetting candidates, and completing all necessary paperwork. The hiring process is in no way easy or fast. It takes a while to find a good candidate and even then, it may not work out. A positive outcome of DIY hiring is that you do not have to spend money on hiring a domestic staffing agency. However, if you do not have the excess time and energy needed to spend on the hiring process, DIY hiring may not be the best choice for you.
Overall, you know yourself and your household needs best. Hopefully this article has helped you weigh out the pros and cons of using a Los Angeles domestic hiring agency. Sometimes it’s best to leave it up to the professionals.
