A staffing agency — also referred to as a recruiting firm — serves as a liaison between companies searching for talent and job seekers. Because staffing firms screen resumes, perform reference checks, and schedule interviews, among other duties, companies can focus on growing the business. Organizations elect to use staffing agencies for numerous reasons, such as their access to talent networks, their ability to increase an organization's ROI, and their industry market knowledge.

Staffing expert Carrie Charles advises companies to educate themselves on industry changes in the post-pandemic market. When creating a welcoming work culture, companies need to consider mental health, generational gaps and expectations, and flexible working arrangements. The quicker executives and leaders can acknowledge the shift taking place within the workforce, the better equipped they will be to hand off responsibilities to the next generation.
