Welcome to The VET Recruiter TV. This is Stacy Pursell.

An employer protects itself in a number of different ways. For example, it hires lawyers to handle its legal affairs. It also hires accountants to handle its financial affairs. But what about in the area of hiring? An organization’s ability to recruit, hire, and retain top talent is crucial to its long-term success. That’s what makes a search consultant so valuable.

Retaining the services of a search consultant can help protect an organization’s talent and ensure that it remains competitive, and this is done in a number of ways. First, a search consultant has extensive knowledge of the job market. Specifically, they have valuable information not only about emerging trends, but also about other employers within the Animal Health industry or Veterinary profession.

Second, a search consultant has access to an extensive network of candidates. These are highly qualified candidates who would be open to considering an attractive opportunity if it was right for them AND if they knew about it.

Third, a search consultant can reduce the time that it takes to fill an open position. They can hit the ground running on a search because they’re in the trenches of the employment marketplace day in and day out.

Fourth, a search consultant can reduce the cost of training and onboarding. Since they find and recruit the best candidates possible, those candidates are typically more productive in a shorter amount of time.

Finally, a search consultant can improve the retention rates of new hires. They follow up with those hires to make sure they’re embracing their new employment situation and are satisfied with the choice they made.

An organization’s talent is one of its most important assets, and a search consultant can help to protect that asset from start to finish. Thank you for watching The VET Recruiter TV and I look forward to seeing you soon.
