Flexible Staffing

Uncertain times create a unique opportunity to leverage Flexible Staffing in ways you have not needed to in the past.

Do you remember Y2K, or how about the Financial Meltdown in 2008? Today with Covid-19, we have a similar challenge in the Staffing Industry and that is to be Flexible with our Staffing solutions to support our business partners and the great talent we work with.

The three scenarios above changed the employment market, created anxiety and forced business to quickly change and adapt. In many cases, talented individuals had their positions terminated not for performance but instead for global business conditions beyond their control.

Today, job postings can attract hundreds, if not thousands, of candidates … more than ever since 2009. This is the best time to have a strong talent acquisition partner, such as Talencity to support you on aligning talent to meet your business objectives.

3 key benefits in working with a talent acquisition partner include:

  • Focus

  • Larger pool of qualified candidates

  • Agility
