The agents play the dominant role in society; they enter into business contracts, make arrangements for the meeting between the individuals, firms and organizations, and work for safeguarding the interests of both the parties into a contract. For instance, a recruitment agency introduces competent and proficient professionals to the organization on the one side and allocates the educated and skilled individuals against the positions on the basis of their education and experience on the other. While elucidating the role of agencies in society, it becomes evident that the agencies rendering services at local level in one specific society carry out their operational services on behalf of their clients in order to accomplish the tasks the clients are unable to do on their own. For instance, in the south Asian states including India, Pakistan, Bangladesh and Nepal, where the societies vehemently lay stress upon the arranged marriages by confining it to caste, class, and status, the matrimonial agencies help the families in searching out the like-minded people of same or similar socioeconomic status, caste and sect for marriage purposes. Similarly, thousands of agencies serve as a bridge in respect of exploring jobs for the educated, skilled and experienced personnel through their platforms by connecting them with firms and companies. Furthermore, insurance, legal and educational agencies are also working in all societies of the globe in respect of solving the problems of the people related to
their financial, legal and learning issues. In addition, agencies also make valuable contributions in the promotion of recreational activities, healthcare opportunities, protection of human rights, preservation of wildlife and much more. Mountford (2009) observes that European countries witnessed the establishment of the agencies in bulk for various purposes during the 1950s onward, which include community development, which turned out to be helping hand for the state, government and the public in respect of fastening the pace of progress and development of social, cultural, financial and technological institutions. The agencies have also rendered valuable services in migration and immigration sectors, where they appear to be determined to provide documentation and liaison services by connecting their clients with the international institutions for educational, recruitment, business, tourism and health purposes outside their native states and countries at large. The migration agents keep in contact with the governmental authorities as well as multinational companies and make arrangements for the placement of highly skilled and talented persons generally belonging to the third world states to the developed societies of the world. In addition, they enter into the agreement with the educational institutions of different levels for the admission of overseas students at there. In addition, the agencies have also associated with the religious institutions, and consequently turn out to be supportive in respect of seeking asylum for their clients on political, ethnic-racial and religious foundations to ensure their safe and sound migration from one region to the other keeping in view the security as well as social and financial interests of the clients.
