Employer Tip: How Do You Find The Right Person?


As an employer, you probably have a list in your mind of the qualities that your dream candidate has.

You want to hire someone who will work hard, be honest, and won’t steal from you. You want someone who is motivated and willing to learn new things and grow with you as your business grows. Someone who will take pride in their work and give 110% every day. Someone who isn’t afraid of hard work and isn’t afraid of making mistakes as long as they learn from those mistakes and become a better worker because of them. And most of all, you need someone who is trustworthy.

Maybe you’ve even put a list of qualities in your job posting. Common ones we see are:

  • Good communication skills
  • Ability to work independently as well as in a team
  • Positive attitude and enthusiasm
  • Strong organizational skills
  • Able to work under pressure and meet deadlines
  • Self-motivated

The list goes on.

But how do you actually find the right person? Listing qualities is nice, but doesn’t guarantee that the candidates have checked all those boxes.

In fact, looking at the list above… I’m sure that doesn’t sound like anyone you know. Finding the perfect candidate is extremely hard and it is rare to find someone that has all of the qualities above.

The answer is actually quite simple, outsource the task of finding the right person to a temp agency! It’s what they do best!

Temp agencies have a vast pool of talent that they have vetted. The chance of them finding the best candidate for your position is much higher than if you’re doing the search on your own using traditional job websites and recruiting services.

The temp agency not only finds you the skilled worker, but can also take care of other elements of the hiring process such as:

  • Background checks
  • Drug tests
  • Worker’s compensation insurance
  • Payroll administration
  • Employee benefits enrolment
  • Exit interviews
  • And much more…
