We had a great few days at Bullhorn Engage this year; as always, we were in awe of the effort put in by everyone in organising and running such an inspiring event
It’s difficult to pinpoint our single favourite moment, so here are a few of our highlights:
We need liquidity for growth
During this year’s keynote we heard how as the unemployment rate continues to drop to a historic low, its stifling the growth of the staffing industry. For the industry to grow again, “…we need people to become available. We need liquidity.”, Art Papas said.
So how do we create liquidity? One way is to have a recession. The second, is through robots and automation. Automation creates the liquidity we need and frees people up from outmoded jobs to make them available for the jobs we need.
Automation with a human touch
We were really looking forward to this panel and it didn’t disappoint! We’re at a really exciting time now where software continues to evolve, equipping recruiters with more tools than ever, but it’s important to take a considered approach to automation. Automation should give a good experience to your candidates and clients and in order to achieve this, you need to really know your audience and the pain points that you want to solve.
We’ve found that many Kyloe clients have workarounds for some of these pain points, or don’t know that it’s possible to improve workflows. If this sounds like you, we’d recommend taking a look at your processes and making a list of the things that are inefficient, as it’s likely there is a tweak that can be made to help make it smoother!
