Employers hire recruitment agencies to find candidates for their open jobs. Agency recruiters do this by researching the open roles, identifying qualified people, screening the candidates, and providing support to the employer during selection of the new hire.
Empowers Staffing Inc. is a One Stop Shop Agency.
- Direct Hire
- As the name states – this model Empowers Staffing Inc. becomes the professionals that interviews the company / client to understand their needs, their culture together with details of the position / job. Then Empowers Staffing Inc. searches and interviews the possible candidates to find the best match. After Empowers Staffing Inc. finds the candidate that fits all the criteria, they connect the candidate to the employer / client for interview. If and when the offer is made and accepted the candidate becomes an employee of the client company.
- Contract Staffing
- Empowers Staffing Inc. helps companies fill positions with contract workers on an ongoing basis. In this model, Empowers Staffing Inc. becomes the employer of record, who holds the W2 on the employee. This model helps the employers who do not wish to hire full time avoid the complications that comes with hiring example onboarding, taxes, unemployment, and workers compensation insurance. The model also helps those candidates that do not wish to work for one company for a long time or are still looking to make some life decisions.
- Contract to Direct Hire
- This model works similar to the one above (Contract Staffing) with the difference that it gives the employer ability to hire the candidate after agreed amount of time; example three (3) months or six (6) months depending on the agreement.

Why work with an agency?
In today’s highly competitive, candidate-driven job market, finding and hiring the ideal job candidate is quite hard. This is why many companies turn to recruitment agencies to help them recruit the right people for their open job positions.
Different companies work with recruitment agencies to fill different needs. Typical reasons include:
Providing support to hiring managers if there is no internal recruiting or human resources team;
Identifying hard to find or highly specialized talent;
Finding job candidates from outside the company’s own networks of people;
Assisting in-house recruiter during a hiring spree or growth spurt;
Maintaining confidentiality during a sensitive search;
Replacing altogether the need for an in-house recruiting function.
Many agency recruiters are able to identify resumes that match the skills, abilities and experience required by a role. However, employers now emphasize the need to hire employees who fit their corporate values, vision and culture.
Boutique recruiting agencies can make a huge difference and add immense value here.
Nowadays, we’re sure you don’t have the time (or the patience) to go through recruitment processes and interview thousands of applicants who might meet their criteria. At the end of the day, time is money. You’d rather spend your time somewhere else than going through interviews with candidates that make you want to smash your head against the wall.
That’s why recruitment agencies are so beneficial to small and medium companies. However, just as no two job applicants are the same, you’ll find that some recruitment agencies are more effective than others.
In most circumstances, when you begin to search for the answer to your staffing problems, the obvious place to start is with the biggest brand names. You know — those omnipresent providers you’re always hearing about. They seem to etch their way into your brain. But that doesn’t make them the best choice. In fact, there are plenty of reasons why boutique recruitment agencies might be better for your business and your future.
After all, it’s not the size that counts, it’s what you do with it…
