One of your best investments – given the market picture and the fact that your plate is probably already full with other business-critical strategies –may be partnering with a staffing firm specializing in sourcing accounting and finance talent. Here are some reasons why:

Access to Active and Passive Candidates

Passive candidates can be the hardest to connect with, so here’s where well-tenured recruitment specialists can be worth their while. Their expertise, knowledge of the accounting and finance fields, and robust talent network can help you quickly land the talent you need. They can also pinpoint professionals who want to stay with a company long-term to help boost your employee retention rate. Because who wants the headache of having to rehire yet again?


Keeping your time-to-fill to a minimum, without cutting any key corners in your hiring process, is essential. Your recruitment partner will focus their time solely on finding the accounting and finance talent you need without being pulled away by other matters. As they do so, they’ll help ensure that all the I’s are dotted and T’s are crossed: taking care of reference and background checks and other details, including maintaining timely communication with candidates and working with you on the job offers and negotiation steps, and more.
