When it comes to temporary recruitment, job placements come and go very quickly. There can be pressure to fill placements from the list of candidates you keep. Simply put – not fulfilling the job placement could lead to the disaster of losing a client to a rival agency. 🤬
As a business you want to grow and become more profitable. What you want to spend your time on is winning new business from new clients and growing your candidate list. In order to achieve this, you need to spend less time attempting to place candidates in the first place.
If you’re finding yourself spending large portions of your day ringing up candidates to place them, or emailing to check availability, you should evaluate your strategy. Phone calls take time – people like to chat… and it’s a one to one conversation. Not ideal if you have a huge list of candidates to get through. Email, well, no one checks email… That’s a problem because you need to fill that placement fast and can’t wait for someone to check their inbox.
What you should be considering is whether you can speed up the process using SMS!
