The holidays are HERE 🦃🕎🎄
Today’s talent is savvier than ever. We talk about this quite a bit on the Sense blog. It’s just that to stand out and land talent, employers are expected to go above and beyond what worked in the past. A concerted, strategic effort is necessary, especially with today’s 4% unemployment rate.
With any number of client reqs and candidates in the pipeline, while sales works on landing new clients, every department of your staffing firm is firing on all cylinders on any given day. While everyone is seemingly moving full speed ahead on the tasks on their plates, it can be difficult to be sure everyone is on the same page.
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.
Your staffing firm is probably pulling out all the stops to source more candidates at the top of the funnel right now. Building awareness and affinity for your brand and generating interest in your job posts is a top priority in such a tight market.
I’m typically not a big fan of getting into jargon in order to make a point. The fact is, you’re busy running your staffing firm, and you want to understand our platform, and how it can help you grow your business.
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.
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.
