Recruitment leaders are pretty frustrated…
For themselves (UK average of 43% attrition)
For their managers (poor-performing staff)
For their recruiters (dirty data, lack of training and process, systems coming out of every orifice)
Recruitment Agencies are in Pain
They’re distracted by:
Checking their emails 36 x an hour and mobiles 47 x a day
Managers spending 26% of their day managing data
Working new leads as they have no process for keeping existing clients (even though the probability of selling to existing clients is 60-70% as opposed to 5-20% new business!)
In fact – they are so distracted they can’t make the right calls or be tenacious enough to tackle pain point 2 and 4.
Recruitment Leaders are Blowing Profit
Spending on average £10k per new starter, as the previous cohort didn’t cut it
Recruitment CRM that their staff insist doesn’t drive the process
“Compensatory” tech and 3rd party systems which forgives point 2 and creates more distractions
Delivering the wrong training - recruiters are screaming for "consumable" training, ideally OnDemand HIIT-style training (hence why my team and I have created recruitment HIIT)
Running a recruitment business is painful!
And then you hear about technology which will make the pain go away! Another distraction?
Kevin Green Said: 85% of the Value of Your Business is in Your People
Why are 2/3 of your leavers quitting either directly or indirectly through a lack of training? And why are you buying more recruitment tools, when they can't use what they already have? Why is the most important recruitment tool being under invested in...
(What would Kevin say?)
fixate on recruitment tech that takes the pain away
...that takes away the distractions and the attrition! Focus on your CRM - CRMFirst is my mantra!
Using your Recruitment CRM correctly can:
Boost Sales by 29%
Reduce your attrition by 2/3
Prevent the crazy distractions above – no-one is ever trained to check their emails 36 x an hour!
Training your staff is an important strategy for this year. Training them the right way is critical.
Would 50% More Productivity Suit You?
Blended learningis the route to success. OnDemand high intensity interval training, blended with practices, quizzes, webinars, and face to face - recruiters are likely to be 50% more productive with continuous and speedy training! Hence recruitment HIIT.
Not training your staff, then blowing £10k replacing each individual… distracting and expensive!
If the average recruiter takes 6-12 months to be effective, and then quits, no wonder being a recruitment leader is a tough gig!
If experienced recruiters drown under the weight of too much data and systems, please grab the chance to "reboot" them.
Just as it's cheaper to sell to existing clients, it's MUCH cheaper to keep your staff then re-recruit!
Make the Pain Go Away
I spoke at the Recruitment Agency Expo in February about how recruitment technology should boost process and sales, not simply replace recruiters and increase your expenses.
See my slides below – and please arrange a call with me if you want 2020 to be about less distraction, less leavers, and more sustainability and profit. I’m on a mission to work with you to take the pain away.
Continuous Blended learning is the route to success, not just recruitment training. OnDemand high intensity interval training, blended with practices, quizzes, webinars, and face to face - recruiters are likely to be 50% more productive with continuous and speedy training! Hence recruitment HIIT.
