Candidate fall offs are beyond frustrating. You stake your reputation on the talents and commitment of a prospect, only to be burned when that person cuts and runs on an employment contract. Eliminating every such instance is impossible, but measures exist to lower candidate fall off rates. When fill rates are suffering, considering these three simple steps lowers premature turnover.

Identifying high-quality candidates is a time consuming process.
Investigating referrals, social media, and job boards diverts recruiters from where their efforts matter most: in candidate interactions and submissions. Those routine candidate sourcing duties squander the creativity and intelligence of a recruiting team on robotic tasks. Recruiting software automation empowers recruiters to focus on productive tasks that enable the most placements. And staffing and recruiting software can provide the solution. Continue reading
Where will you find your next great candidate? That’s a question that’s getting increasingly difficult to answer. Continued talent shortages and a staffing industry that is growing 2.5 times faster than the U.S. economy are changing the market for good.
Keeping talent pools plentiful will require greater ingenuity from recruiters and even wider funnels to ensure consistent placements. But building talent pipelines for the changing world does not require firms to reinvent the wheel; it just requires them to recommit to these eight strategies. Continue reading
How realistic your goals are depends on the set of tools at your disposal. Triathlon participants need running shoes, a swimsuit, and a working bike. Otherwise, they can’t expect to make it much farther than the starting line. Recruiting sales goals require their own set of tools, the foremost of which is high performing staffing recruiting software.
Not only does your staffing software solution provide a database for quick candidate retrieval, but it can improve the way you set your goals, keep them, and take them to the next level. Continue reading
Staffing for multiple markets takes a fair amount of finesse. Each line of business involves different approaches to finding, screening, interviewing, processing, and onboarding talent. Though the goal is always to take the client from point A (a vacant position) to point B (a position filled with a perfect candidate), the steps and strategies vary.
Successful multi-line staffing firms thrive because they have in-depth industry knowledge and staffing tools to help them switch between markets seamlessly. In fact, it’s often staffing software that keeps them speeding along without derailing. Here’s what the best staffing software tools are doing to aid multi-line staffing firms. Continue reading
What’s the value of your staffing software once a candidate is placed? Has it exhausted all of its features long before your accounting department gets involved? Or is there a seamless hand-off from your front office to the back office team like two relay runners exchanging a baton? The difference between vendors who offer back office staffing software and those who don’t is striking.
Reviewing employee classifications, producing financial statements, balancing the general ledger, preventing fraud, and verifying time captures get overlooked by most staffing software companies. Rather than splitting your recruiting and accounting tasks between tools, here’s how a strong back office staffing software side can overcome accounting challenges. Continue reading
Your staffing business provides an appetizing target for hackers: social security numbers, salary data, and other personal information. Cybercriminals are just champing at the bit to access them. Last year alone, there were 781 reported data breaches and the average incident costed the affected business $3.8 million. We wish that our industry was immune to targeting, but wherever private data exists, hackers will be hungrily circling. However, keeping staffing data secure is not an act of futility.

Our experience is that the most effective staffing software delivers high performance from end to end. Here’s how: Continue reading
Talent Management, a term developed in a 1997 study by McKinsey & Company, is the process of recruiting, retaining, and developing skilled employees. People are a Staffing Company’s greatest asset. Having a pool of qualified applicants ready to work is invaluable. An online recruitment management system is an integral first step in finding and assessing a large pool of qualified applicants.
Do you consider yourself a hoarder? You may be thinking to yourself: “I’m not like one of those crazy people on cable TV!” Really? What if I were to toss your cell phone in the trash, delete your Social Media accounts, and wipe clear your computer. Just the thought of losing all your personal data might be enough to break out in a cold sweat. In reality, we’re all hoarders, but our obsession lies with a different type of collection: data.
