Wow, 2019 went by in a FLASH, didn’t it? Here at Sense, we were working constantly behind the scenes, and in front -- meeting and speaking with our clients, staying on top of industry trends, and continuously working to improve and add to our robust platform.
The holidays are HERE 🦃🕎🎄
We use emojis (or emoji -- both are actually correct….let’s not get started on GIF versus JIF, though!) throughout the day. Texting family and friends. Sending emails to coworkers. And yes, in candidate and client communications.
Imagine reaching out to thousands of candidates in your database with an 88% total inbound response rate. If you’re like most staffing firms, you’d KILL for numbers in that stratosphere. With texting and the right candidate engagement platform, it is absolutely possible.
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.
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.
Research shows many of us spend more than 3 hours per day on our phones. And it’s probably not a stretch to estimate a good chunk of that time on our phones falls in the work day.
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.
