Top 10 Ways Your Recruitment Agency Should Be Supporting Your Business in 2024

How to Choose the Right Recruitment Agency

As businesses evolve, so too must the recruitment strategies that support their growth. In 2024, the expectations on recruitment agencies are higher than ever, requiring a blend of advanced technology, purpose-led initiatives, impactful contributions, and strategic talent management.

To stay competitive and foster a workplace full of purpose, productivity and support, companies must select recruitment partners who not only fill positions but enhance their overall business dynamics.

Here are the top 10 ways we think your recruitment agency should support your business in the coming year:

Leveraging Cutting-Edge Technology in Recruitment

In today’s digital age, recruitment agencies must utilise the latest technological advancements to streamline hiring processes. This includes sourcing tools that improve the quality and speed of candidate searches, sophisticated applicant tracking systems (ATS) that automate administrative tasks, and data analytics platforms that provide insights into hiring trends and challenges.

Video interview technology is one of the most important tools available in the modern recruiters tech stack. Simply it reduces the time to hire and lets clients quickly asses qualities like cultural fit and technical skills with the ability to give real-time feedback.

Agencies like DiSRUPT have been leading the way in incorporating two-way video interviewing as part of their core offer, saving time and resources while maintaining a personal touch.

Promoting a Purpose-Led Approach to Hiring

A purpose-led recruitment strategy aligns with the growing trend of businesses prioritising corporate social responsibility. Your recruitment agency should help articulate and amplify this purpose, attracting candidates who are not just skilled but are also passionate about your mission. DiSRUPT, for instance, is a B Corp certified agency that prioritises ethical practices and social responsibility, ensuring that the talent they bring to your business is aligned with your values.

Driving Impact with Every Hire

Modern businesses measure success not just by profit margins but by the impact they have on society and the environment. We believe a recruitment agency should facilitate this by integrating impact-driven hiring practices into their services. This involves supporting initiatives such as sustainability projects, community engagements, and partnerships with non-profits like B1G1 and Charity: Water, as DiSRUPT does, to ensure that every hiring decision contributes positively to broader societal goals.


Expertise in Talent Management

Talent management goes beyond hiring; it includes nurturing, developing, and retaining employees. If you are using a recruitment partner via and RPO or long term project basis, its important that they offer services that help manage talent throughout their lifecycle at your company. This includes onboarding processes that integrate new hires into your company culture, continuous learning and development opportunities, and career progression plans that keep employees engaged and motivated.

Supporting Flexible Work Arrangements

As the work landscape changes, flexibility becomes key. Your recruitment agency should be adept at sourcing candidates who are not only open to but thrive in flexible working environments. This includes part-time, freelance, remote, and job-sharing positions. Agencies like DiSRUPT offer tailored flexible hiring solutions that meet the evolving needs of modern workforces.

Ensuring Diversity and Inclusion

An effective recruitment agency must prioritise diversity and inclusion by adopting inclusive hiring practices that attract a broad range of candidates. This means going beyond checking boxes and actively working to dismantle biases in the hiring process, creating a workforce that reflects the diverse society we live in. DiSRUPT, in its partnership with Includability, works to ensure that their recruitment practices are as diverse, inclusive, sustainable and mentally healthy as possible.

Providing Comprehensive Candidate Screening

To ensure the quality of hires, your recruitment agency should conduct thorough screening processes that assess candidates not just for their skills and experiences but for their potential cultural fit and alignment with your company’s ethos. Comprehensive screening includes detailed interviews, skill assessments, and background checks, all tailored to your specific business needs.

Offering Strategic Recruitment Planning

Your recruitment agency should act as a strategic partner, helping you plan not just for your immediate hiring needs but for long-term human resource planning. This involves understanding your business objectives, anticipating future hiring needs, and developing a talent acquisition strategy that supports sustainable growth.

Facilitating Robust Communication Channels

Effective communication between your business and your recruitment agency is crucial. There should be established channels for regular updates, feedback, and discussions to ensure that the recruitment strategy continually aligns with your business’s changing needs. Agencies like DiSRUPT provide regular reports and insights, keeping you informed every step of the way.

In-House Expertise with Outsourced Efficiency

We believe that for a long time the recruitment models of the past have been broken, however many agencies have continued to push traditional solutions that incur monthly fees regardless of placement success and offer the client a poor level of delivery and support.

Outsourced Recruitment (RPO) has long been used as a one-size-fits-all strategy for filling positions at pace. Our experience has shown us that the key element of creating a strategic recruitment partnership is to take the in-house expertise of a recruitment agency and embed that within an organisation. This ensures the values, culture, brand and ethos are all translatable with the hiring process.

When you couple this with a partnership that is built on successful outcomes and not monthly retainers, this means companies only invest when tangible results are delivered, ensuring that the results are concrete and the process is equitable for all.

How to choose the right recruitment agency for you

Choosing the wrong recruitment partner can result in slow growth, poor job placements, high turnover, a lack of support for employee mental health, and a workforce that doesn’t represent your brand’s values and ethos effectively.

In 2024, ensure your recruitment agency supports your business with advanced technology, purpose-led strategies, impactful contributions, and comprehensive talent management. Select a partner like DiSRUPT that is committed to not just meeting but exceeding these criteria, helping you build a resilient, dynamic, and aligned workforce that is prepared to meet the challenges of the future.
