Why You May Not Be Getting Great Candidates From Your Agencies

How many times has this happened? You open a job to your agencies and they begin submitting candidates. One by one you review the résumés, separating the candidates into “yes” and “no” piles, but quickly the flow of applicants turns to a trickle and the quality of candidates seems to stagnate--or even worse--decline. Your boss and HR is pressing you to fill the position and you throw up your hands, saying, "I need better agencies.” Your first reaction may be to put the job out to more…

Temping vs benefits: Is it such a tough choice?

I’ve recently moved into the exciting world of providing Temps after a few years’ break & wow – has it changed. Not only because the Agency Workers Regulations that were introduced in October 2011 gives agency workers (temps) entitlement to the same basic employment & working conditions as if they’d been recruited directly. It’s also because I’ve noted that this ‘recession’ is scaring good, strong candidates away from leaving their ‘benefits’ to sign off & work. It was always…

Would you supply via an RPO?

 

 

This is inspired by Jerry's blog on recruiters refusing to work through HR and the rant I had in the comment section. Thanks for the idea, hope I'm not copying!

Why Recruitment Agencies Need To Become Pigs

Bear with me on this one.

 

It must be searingly obvious to anyone who works in recruitment that recruitment agencies (and more specifically the people therein) are receiving a lot of flak at the moment – most of it around their oafish sales tactics and their diminishing ability to deliver a viable recruitment service to either the company or the candidate.

The Key Questions to Ask On a Staffing Sales Call

Whether you’re calling a new prospect or an old customer, don’t make the mistake of asking the same old questions. The first (and worst!) that most people think to ask is “Are you hiring?” What if they say no? Then you’ve just effectively ended the conversation before it’s had a chance to start.

If you ask the same questions, you’ll get the same answers, and these answers won’t get you anywhere. When you’re making sales calls, adjust your mindset. Instead of seeking out orders, try to…

Mostly by affecting consumers.

What is “SaaS” and what can it do for your staffing company?

A rapidly growing trend for both small and large companies is the use of Software as a Service (SaaS).

SaaS provides software to customers as an on-demand service rather than the traditional method of delivery software as an on-site installation with upfront costs.
