Modern advancements in technology have enabled organizations to meet the immediate needs of their market and the demands of consumers. As organizations have embraced the use of digital tools in their business functions, this style of business, known widely as on-demand, has allowed companies to provide products and services faster than ever before. The On-Demand mentality has made its way into the hiring industry by enabling companies to hire at scale during times of need. In today’s business environment, recruiters are empowered through on-demand recruiting to meet the immediate staffing needs of your industry.

What is On-Demand Recruiting?


On-Demand recruiting is a recruiting service that organizations provide on an as-needed basis or project basis. When companies face large spikes in hiring volumes or are facing short-staffed issues, on-demand hiring enables them to fulfill their hiring goals without sacrificing productivity. On-demand hiring is a highly flexible service, allowing for customization according to your needs. Recruiters for on-demand recruitment services act as an extension of your existing Talent Acquisition function, creating a more adaptable hiring process.



How Can On-Demand Recruiting Support Your Hiring Needs During Recovery?

On-demand recruiting is an excellent strategy for organizations to use when looking to hire during times of recovery. Some benefits that businesses see when using an on-demand recruiting approach include:

1. The ability to scale up or down. One of the greatest benefits of using an on-demand recruiting strategy is the ability to scale up or down according to your immediate needs. If your project or staffing needs require more than one recruiter on-demand, you can easily adjust your approach. Since on-demand recruiting is an extension of your internal recruitment strategy, it acts as a supplemental resource to your recruitment department.

2. Added flexibility in costs. In addition to scaling your recruitment approaches, on-demand recruiting allows you to adjust the costs you incur. In a typical recruitment strategy, hiring managers need to ensure compliance with state and federal labor laws when hiring a full-time employee. On-demand recruiting allows more flexibility. On-demand recruiters join the team on an as-needed basis, allowing hiring managers to retain their on-demand workforce as long as necessary or let them go when demand is decreased.
