The official unemployment rate has fallen to its lowest it’s been in 49 years, 3.7%. The job gains have been very consistent over a number of months and years. Because it’s a very candidate-driven market, companies need to be on top of their game in order to attract and retain great talent.

As a result, employers may need to turn to staffing firms to find the right talent they need to complete these searches. The reasons for this can vary, but the most common challenges facing internal HR or talent acquisition teams looking to hire these highly competitive or hard-to-find positions include:

  1. Lack of industry or functional knowledge needed to find the right skill set
  2. Limited access to a talent pool
  3. Lack of resources available for attracting top talent
  4. Inefficient or slow hiring process allowing candidates to choose other openings

If these challenges occur in your company, you’re not alone. In fact, we hear these a lot and it’s why the TalentLaunch Network was created in the first place. The staffing and recruitment firms within our network have deep roots in their communities and are focused on meeting companies’ talent demands by leveraging best-in-class tools and resources to elevate the overall experience. The mission is to provide the infrastructure and back-office services our firms need to do what they do best – build relationships with you!
