Candidate engagement is king right now in the staffing industry. And the chief among candidate engagement tools leading the conversation is texting.

Busy is the new normal. We’re constantly checking emails, returning calls and scheduling meetings. The “working vacation” is how people “relax” and still get things done. With so much competing for our attention, reaching candidates, clients, prospects and contractors simply isn’t as simple as it was in the past.

Measure. Analyze. Act. Rinse. Repeat.
Candidate experience is a hot topic in the staffing industry today. We certainly talk about it a lot here on the Sense blog. That’s because it matters, a lot. Today’s top staffing firms are winning in part because they are focused on creating a positive candidate experience, engaging talent wherever they are in their funnel.
Thought leaders across the staffing industry (including, unsurprisingly, our own leaders here at Sense) are spending a lot of time lately talking about texting.

It feels like everyone is talking about candidate engagement lately. Probably because...well...they are talking about candidate engagement. A quick Google search found more than 128,000,000 results.
Data suggests businesses across the globe will be spending more than $3 trillion on tech. Now that includes all of IT and tech initiatives, but put simply, we’re spending a LOT of money on technology.
