Need to Quickly Ramp Recruiting? ‘TAP’ Into This Solution

The summer season is upon us, and that can mean different things to different businesses. While some may be experiencing a brief respite from the crush of daily activities, others are just now entering their busiest time of year. For those companies, the need to quickly ramp up recruiting for seasonal employees – and then ramp down once the frenzy has passed – are top priorities.

It’s not just seasonal businesses that go through hiring spurts, though. In fact, as the economy recovers from the impact of the pandemic, many companies are seeking to rapidly scale their workforce to meet growing demands. And those same organizations may find themselves scaling down after their initial recruiting needs are met.

In either case, the need to hire quickly can present challenges to business owners and managers. Fortunately, Alaant Workforce Solutions has the answer: Talent Acquisition Partnerships.

What are Talent Acquisition Partnerships? 

As the name implies, a Talent Acquisition Partnership, or TAP, is a collaboration that brings organizations together with the experts at Alaant. Rather than trying to tackle a hiring surge on its own – at the same time it’s dealing with the myriad of issues that HR teams encounter on a daily basis – a company using TAP engages an Alaant recruiter that can act as an extension of its staff. 

Using this flexible hiring model, the Alaant recruiter can devote as much time as a firm needs to recruit, either supporting or spearheading its efforts. And, not only do companies gain access to the proven expertise and experience that Alaant’s team is known for, it also leverages the tools, technology, systems and processes that Alaant brings to the table.

How Talent Acquisition Partnerships benefit rapid ramps in hiring

For organizations that have a limited window to hire, TAPs are a perfect solution. They relieve the burden on an already over-extended HR staff, and eliminate the need to find and hire a short-term recruiter that may have to be laid off once hiring winds down.

Best of all, TAPs deliver results. Companies can control costs by establishing a budget that the Alaant recruiter will work within, and they know that each minute and dollar spent is focused solely on recruiting the employees they need. And, once the job is done, the TAP can be concluded, or modified to address other workforce needs within the organization.

Finding and hiring top talent is a significant challenge. As the pandemic eases and business recovers, it will only get tougher. It’s a time when creative solutions are essential, and Alaant’s Talent Acquisition Partnerships may be just what your organization needs.
