What Functions of Your Staffing Firm Can You Automate to Save Time and Money?
As the recruitment landscape becomes increasingly complex, staffing firms must be committed to identifying areas of their recruitment and hiring process that can be automated to save time and money.
Like the old saying goes, “time is money,” and through automation, you can strategically improve various aspects of your staffing firm’s productivity while enhancing relationships with candidates and your clients. Fortunately, through the use of ATS software, it’s become much easier for recruiters to automate many aspects of their day-to-day tasks – allowing them more time to build relationships with key candidates and meet clients’ workforce development needs.
Check out what functions of your staffing firm you can automate and how an ATS can assist in this process:
Targeted job postings
Many recruiters know firsthand that finding the right candidates often starts with their job promotion strategy. Automating job postings can prove to be extremely beneficial in attracting the right talent, as well as developing a pipeline of qualified candidates.
Most ATS platforms have a job integration system in which job openings are strategically posted and promoted through targeted career boards based on the nature of the position and industry. This not only improves recruitment results but can save recruiters time from having to post jobs to multiple websites.
With relationships being the foundation of successful recruitment, investing in ATS software with a client relationship management (CRM) automation is crucial. CRM integration allows recruiters to maintain strong candidate and client relationships with readily accessible data that can be monitored and used for follow-up communications, as well as keeping your database of contacts organized. Most importantly, this allows recruiters to be more strategic with lead generation, focusing time and energy on the right types of candidates.
Over time, taking steps to automate the functions listed above will result in better performance in all aspects of your operations. The key is to get started!
