Our Temporary Employment Services Recruitment Process

Finding the right employment opportunity, and the right recruitment agency that you can trust can be a daunting task for any person who wants to find reliable employment. This is where professional recruitment agencies like CSG step in, offering professional recruitment and TES services with a reliable recruitment process to bridge the gap between employers and candidates.

How to choose a reputable recruitment company

When it comes to finding employment, especially temporary employment, it can be difficult to know which companies are reputable and trustworthy and which simply aren’t. There are many horror stories about people who get caught up in scams or get taken advantage of. It is therefore vital that individuals seeking employment are able to differentiate between the fly-by- night labour brokers or ‘bakkie brigades’ and reputable recruitment agencies.

Here are a few things to look out for when seeking a reputable recruitment company:

● No fees should be charged to the candidate
● There must be a valid contract
● The recruitment company must be registered with the Department of Labour

How to avoid a bad hire

Define clear job requirements

Create detailed job descriptions and specifications that clearly outline the skills, qualifications, and experience required for the position.

Thoroughly assess cultural fit

Ensure all candidates understand your company’s culture and values. And don’t just assess candidates for their skills and experience but also their alignment with the company.

Conduct comprehensive interviews

Have a structured interview process that includes multiple rounds of interviews. These interviews should evaluate both technical skills and soft skills, such as communication, teamwork, and problem-solving.

Use behavioural interviews

Incorporate behavioural interview questions that probe into a candidate’s past experiences and how they handled specific situations.

Check references

Conduct thorough reference checks. This can provide insights into a candidate’s performance, work ethic, and character from previous employers or colleagues.

Leverage assessment tests

Psychometric assessments are exceptional tools in validating a candidate’s ability and suitability for a position. Certain assessments will even test competency fit and potential with regards to adaptability in a certain career path. These are essential insights into hiring the right candidate, long-term.


Ensure a smooth cultural and position onboarding process to help new hires integrate into the company.

Set probationary periods

Implement a probationary period for new hires, during which their performance is closely monitored and address any issues early on.

Continuously evaluate the recruitment process

Regularly review and improve your recruitment process and assess the effectiveness of your strategies in preventing bad hires.

Monitor retention rates

Keep track of employee turnover rates and identify any patterns related to bad hires.

Learn from past mistakes

If a bad hire does occur, use it as an opportunity to learn and adapt your hiring process. Understand what went wrong and make necessary adjustments.
