Reasons Why Agency Recruiters Leave

Staffing agency recruiters are a special breed of person who possess several character traits that they rely on daily to succeed. Saying goodbye to them as they move on to an internal in-house corporate recruiting position or better yet your competition has an immediate and lasting negative financial impact that is irreplaceable.

The reasons cited on why agency recruiters make the move to in-house:

  • Not making the kind of money they expected
  • Tired of the day-to-day pressure cooker and are burned out mentally
  • Lack of trust, respect and confidence in ownership/leadership/supervisor
  • Grass is greener elsewhere
  • Satisfaction with overall workplace environment
  • Unable to identify with their peers
  • Need a greater work-life balance
  • Work site commutability
  • Flexibility to work remotely
  • Their boss/company expects them to be available at all times
