Direct Hire

What is Direct Hire?

Direct Hire

What does “direct hire” mean exactly?

Direct hire is the process of bringing an employee into a company directly from an agency.
The agency handles all aspects of the employment hiring process, including candidate recruitment, interviews, and background checks. Also, the employee is often seen as a permanent, full-time member of the company, with all the benefits and responsibilities that come with that.

A corporation or an agency may seek candidates for direct-hire positions. When an agency is used to fill a position, it is called direct hire staffing or direct hire recruiting. The agency does recruitment, but when candidates accept a job offer, they become permanent firm employees.

Benefits versus Drawbacks

Is direct hiring the best option for you?

If your objective is to recruit permanent workers and attract competent individuals who want to feel like an integral part of the company, both direct hires and contract workers come with costs, so your choice will depend on how the benefits of each compare to the costs. Here are some factors to consider:

Benefits of Direct Hire

  • Bring in more talented people, most of whom are more likely to choose a permanent job over a contract job. The position’s long-term nature results in greater employee commitment and retention.
  • If you utilize a recruiting firm as the direct hire authority, you do not have to use your own resources to locate and screen individuals—unless you want to read hundreds of applications, including passive candidates, to discover a few good ones!
  • A staffing agency that works in your industry not only has access to a large pool of recent graduates and potential candidates but also knows how to screen them quickly to find the best ones for your company’s needs.

Drawbacks of Direct Hire

  • Cost: A one-time fee equal to a percentage of the employee’s first-year salary is usually charged on top of the ongoing costs of adding the position to your payroll.
  • Relocation expenditures: For permanent positions, you may find the best candidate in a place far from where you live. This means that the employee and his or her family will have to move and settle in a new place.
  • A more extensive hiring procedure than contract labor.

The Direct Hire Process

  • Recruit candidates using networks. Agencies like Royal Personnel Services have huge networks that go beyond the HR department of a single company. This means that you will have access to a much larger pool of qualified candidate(s), which makes it more likely that you will find the right person.
  • Examine applications and screen applicants. Verify that all applicants are qualified and compatible with the company’s culture.
  • Send candidates to the final interview. Your agency will provide you with the information they have gathered so you can make an informed decision.
  • Make an offer to fill the vacancy. Congratulations! You have a new staff member. In addition, they work closely with recruiting managers to comprehend the position’s specific requirements and ensure that the finest candidates are selected.

What are the other types of hiring?

There are several forms of hiring that you can participate in, depending on your needs and preferences. The most common forms of hiring include:

  • Temporary Position: This is when a person fills a short-term need with an organization. For example, you may work for a company for three months to help it complete a project. Temporary staffing includes seasonal hiring or hiring employees during busier seasons to accommodate increased business.
  • Contract: Contract hiring is when an employee works temporarily for a company based on a contract. For example, a company may hire an engineer for a 10-month contract, and after the ten months is complete, the engineer will seek employment elsewhere.
  • Contract-to-hire: This type of hiring is when a company uses a temporary employee for a set amount of time and then offers them a permanent position based on their performance.

Tips for finding and getting direct-hire jobs

The following are several tips to consider to help you find permanent jobs:

  • Use the help of a staffing agency like Royal Personnel Services. Some staffing firms focus on helping people find jobs that are currently hiring. Working with a staffing agency can save you a lot of time during your job search and help you find jobs that fit your skills, experience, education, and interests the best. Also, most staffing agencies don’t charge people looking for work to use them, so you won’t have to pay anything during the process.
  • Go to events where employers are hiring. Larger companies often hold recruiting events or go to career fairs offering direct-hire packages to the best people they meet. These are great places to find out about new job opportunities and get a job or an interview right away.
  • Apply on the website of the organization. If you find a permanent job opening on a job search website, apply directly to the job on the company’s website instead of through the job listing. This could make it more likely that the hiring manager will see your application and give you a better chance of getting the job.
  • Check out the social media of a company. Some companies will post about open jobs on their social media or LinkedIn page, giving those who follow the company early access. Follow companies where you’d like to work and watch for ads for permanent jobs.
  • Ask for referrals. When a company wants to hire someone for a permanent job, they want to hire someone who is trustworthy and has the skills to do the job. A current employee recommending you to the hiring manager is a great way to get your foot in the door and get an interview for a permanent job.
