In today’s society, businesses are constantly looking at ways in which they can automate their internal processes, better connect with consumers, and minimize their manual workload. For almost all industries, the answer has been, technology. In the world of HR, technology has transformed the very meaning of work. Staffing agencies and recruitment firms are using technology to automate their internal processes and achieve worker-centricity.
Here at SHFT App, we are very familiar with this ‘shift’ in the HR space. From experience with our very own hospitality company SHFTHero, we understand the challenges that staffing agencies and recruitment firms face in managing and retaining true talent. Finding the right staff for the job, often within a small time frame, can be a very challenging, time-consuming process. Alongside this, the risk of ‘no-shows’ and poor staff performance can detriment your relationship with the client, and overall brand image.
To overcome these pain points, we decided to integrate labour-matching technology into our hospitality staffing company - automating and perfecting our internal processes. Its efficiency and speed allowed us to grow our company significantly, expanding across the state of NSW and supporting a community of over 4,000 hospitality businesses and workers.
Interested in discovering how our labour-matching technology is transforming the HR space? Want to know more about its role in improving staffing agency performance? Well, we’ve highlighted the key benefits below.
Save time. Lot’s of it.
Finding the perfect staff for the client’s is often a lengthy process - but studies have found that labour-matching technology almost halves this time. Labour-matching technology, such as that offered at SHFT App, helps staffing agencies automate those repetitive, time-consuming tasks, and win client bids in a quick and efficient manner. Labour-matching technology enables recruiters to spend more time focusing on critical metrics, such as fill-rates, up skilling the workforce and new client acquisition. Speed, really is everything.
Retain your workers, for longer.
Studies have shown that staffing agencies that use labour-matching technology, retain their workers for three times longer than those that don’t. With worker profiles, geolocation and easy-to-use filters, labour-matching technology gives workers total control over their work schedules.
In today’s society, we are witnessing the rise of ‘on-demand consumerism’, with the modern-day consumer accessing whatever they want, whenever they want - with just a few clicks on an app. This logic transfers into the notion of work - workers should pick up jobs that work for them, not the other way around.
Take it from us - 'worker-centricity' is the future of work.
Meet your client’s needs.
Another perk of labour-matching technology is the internal admin dashboard - giving recruiters and account managers total control over what their workforce sees. Administrative control provides in-depth visibility of the workforce, workers’ profiles, skills, compliance details, performance and feedback. The admin dashboard ensures that workers are only matched with shifts that best fit their skills and experience.
Perfect matches = successful assignments.
And successful assignments = happy clients.
Genuine availability. Gone are the days of ‘no-shows’.
As we all know in the HR space, ‘no-shows’ are not fun. They are not only detrimental to the workflow, but can affect your agency’s relationship with clients and overall brand image. Labour-matching technology successfully avoids this. With workers having access to their own availability, and preferences - they are only eligible for shifts that they can actually work.
Track your agency’s performance.
With an internal rating system, your agency will have its very own feedback loop - from worker, to client, to agency. Internal ratings allow agencies to better track the performance of their workforce, and put the very best people forward for the job.
