Candidate engagement is king right now in the staffing industry. And the chief among candidate engagement tools leading the conversation is texting.
Measure. Analyze. Act. Rinse. Repeat.
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.

Scan just about any list of top priorities for staffing firms this year, and you’re likely to see artificial intelligence (AI) and automation near the top. But these terms are more than industry buzzwords used to get clicks; they are game-changing technologies that are transforming the staffing industry.

We have been talking about texting quite a bit here on the Sense blog lately, and with good reason -- texting is the preferred method of communication for many of us, and its potential within the staffing industry is tremendous. Mobile engagement rates are really incredible, and offer a unique opportunity for staffing firms to take advantage.
