Prioritizing office & administrative staffing

Identifying the need for a new office administrative professional, writing a job description, researching pay, posting ads, sifting through resumes, interviewing, offering, negotiating and onboarding is an arduous process. To make the wrong hire—and do that process over and over—is expensive, time consuming and headache inducing.

That’s exactly why you—or really, your office and admin staffing provider—must work hard to find office job candidates who not only fit your position requirements, but also fit your culture. Avoid trying to fit a square peg in a round hole at all costs; only hire administrative job candidates who make for seamless, productive fits.

Even during the labor market’s most competitive times, it’s possible to find the right fits. How? By reengaging past associates and by tapping into our expansive and diverse talent pool of potential new associates. Think of our talent pool as your business’s on-demand source for eager office administrative workers.
