With growing unemployment rates and millions of people on the hunt for a job, technology has never been more important in helping your recruiters rise to the occasion. Today’s most sophisticated staffing firms are going beyond triggered emails and SMS integration to provide a seamless, polished experience throughout the talent lifecycle. If you want to foster better candidate relationships and max out your return on investment, your next superpower might be a conversational AI assistant — also known as a chatbot.
As of August 2020, there are nearly 30 million Americans receiving some form of unemployment insurance. While that number certainly signifies opportunity and talent access for staffing firms, it also sheds light on something that’s underrated yet extremely important.
All of us at Sense enjoy collaborating and digging into important topics with our colleagues across the staffing and recruiting industry. Recently, I had the pleasure of joining PandoLogic’s April Arteaga and Kimco’s Azeddine Ouhida to talk about data. But a LOT of people are talking about data (including here at Sense). We wanted to go further in this webinar, to really help you get results for your efforts. In this webinar, we examined how to transform your data into results.
You’ve probably interacted with a chatbot at some point or another. And maybe you’ve interacted with a conversational assistant. The terms “chatbot” and “conversational assistant” are often used interchangeably (honestly, even here on the Sense blog), but in all truth they’re actually quite different.
With 31 offices across the U.S. and more than three decades of success, BelFlex is one of the country’s top staffing firms specializing in light industrial work. When BelFlex came on board with Sense, they were looking for an automation solution that could amplify their core values of service and people, while providing a more efficient experience from bottom to top.
There is so much variability right now among staffing firms. While many essential industries have been booming since early spring, other industries have slowed down or even stopped hiring altogether. The current economic reality means vastly different things for different businesses.
As the parent company to three unique staffing brands, Advanced Group fills a wide range of roles from finance to healthcare to creative services. With smart tech at the forefront of their engagement strategy, the firm has been using texting as an important component of their communication plan for years.
Now more than ever, staffing firms are seeking better, more powerful ways to communicate with talent and clients. Here at Sense, we are constantly measuring and reviewing data to determine which modes of communication are most likely to be read and even more importantly -- to receive a response.
We’ve been talking about texting for recruiters here on the Sense blog for awhile now. As we look for ways to not only improve communications with talent, but especially to improve responses and results, texting has quickly emerged as one of -- if not the most -- powerful ways to do just that.
The last 4+ months have provided a heck of a learning curve for most of us, haven’t they? The world turned upside down, seemingly overnight, and as individuals and business leaders, we’ve had to pivot, acclimate, learn and simultaneously take a huge, deep breath to get through this time.
