5 Key Questions to Ask Before Hiring a Recruiting Team
Selecting a recruiting agency can be time-consuming and frustrating. However, once you hire the right experts, they can make your life easier and provide you with the talented personnel you need. To help you, here are five key questions to ask before hiring a recruiting firm…
1. HOW DO YOU MAINTAIN YOUR SERVICE STANDARDS?
In this answer, look for references to integrity, ethical and high moral standards—or worst case, the absence of those words. Be aware of your own organization’s practices and search for a firm with like-minded values. When you work with recruiters that are an ethical match, then it’s more likely that your hires will be the right matches too.
