Why should your company hire people through event staffing agencies when you have the employees to do that already?
That is a question often asked when people call an agency. Hiring people for live events and promotions is easy, right? In reality, if you want a professional event, you need to leave the talent search and hiring to the event staffing agencies.
Here are a the reasons why:
- The agency already has talent waiting. Most agencies of this sort have hundreds of people in their files just waiting for a job call. If you have an event in the future, they can find the ideal candidates to help you out. They have already interviewed these people and know what they are capable of. They have a history with them and have seen in them action. This is a great option especially when you have to get an event together quickly. That is the beauty of event staffing agencies.
- With an agency, you can get all sorts of talent. Events often need more than one kind of talent. Some of that talent is not easy to find. A good agency can provide models, emcees, entertainment, and even drivers if you need them. When you are staffing a big event, you will need access to all of this talent and much more. They can coordinate timing and clothing requirements. All of this happens without a member of your staff having to worry about those details. That is why a staffing agency is the way to go.
- Event staffing agencies can help you with ideas on how to use staff wisely. When planning an event, sometimes, you do not realize just who you need to bring on board to make it a success. You might want some staff to help register guests and pass out promotional materials. Who is acting as emcee at the event? A staffing agency can help you identify the staff you need.
- The agency can coordinate or give training to the staff on your company and products. When you are holding a promotional event, everyone wearing your logo needs to know about you, your company, its brand, and the products/services you offer. When you have people working in the crowd, or handing out promotional materials, your guests may have questions. This training will prepare them to handle basic questions and to redirect to the sales or promotional staff for more complicated ones.
- Event staffing agencies can handle more than one event at a time. Many times you want to have more than one event at the same time. Maybe you have events at different offices. Maybe those offices are in different cities or even different countries. You need staff for those events. Hiring a single agency to help staff those events is the most efficient answer. You deal with one coordinator and they handle the staffing needs.
