Due to the ease of using the internet to find candidates, many companies try to recruit new employees themselves. However, these companies may not get the best results, and conducting the recruitment process takes time that these companies may not have to spare.
A good alternative to a boutique recruitment agency is to use a staffing agency. These agencies help find highly qualified candidates, save time and make the process easier overall.
However, not all recruitment agencies are the same. You have a choice between a large agency that helps recruit for most industries and a smaller boutique agency that focuses on recruiting for only a few niches.
One thing to keep in mind is that there is a shortage of talent for niche positions. This makes it much harder to recruit for those positions if you hire a larger agency or do it yourself. Boutique agencies have many industry contacts that make it easier to find this high-value talent.
Read on to understand what exactly a boutique recruiting agency is and the benefits of working with one.
What is a boutique recruitment agency?
A boutique staffing agency is a small, specialized staffing agency that focuses on finding people for only a few industries and/or specific types of positions.
For example, Lynne Palmer focuses on the media, publishing, and medical communications industries, as these are the industries in which our experienced team maintains its extensive networks.
Specialized boutique recruiters also have smaller teams than larger recruiters. While this may not sound like a good thing, it can actually help improve service. It allows for personal contact and a solid understanding of your needs.
While working with a large staffing agency can yield great results, you may have better results working with a boutique staffing agency, at least for certain positions.
A boutique agency's process focuses on all of your needs, and you always work directly with the same recruiter. You'll also benefit from an extensive network of industry contacts and a search strategy tailored to your exact needs. All of this will help you find top talent in a short period of time.
