Talent spends much of the day on their phones. We all do. Research shows that we check our phones upwards of 80 times a day. With candidate (and even client) ghosting an increasingly problematic issue and recruiter resources maxed out, texting is an excellent way to nurture relationships, save time and ultimately, drive ROI for your staffing firm.
Technology has been a critical component of staffing operations for years. From the olden days of fax machines and copiers to the advent of job boards and the ATS, as technology has evolved, the staffing industry has become more streamlined and efficient.
