Recruitment automation is the new black - it's become a deal maker for many recruitment businesses, especially during this time of need for more effective sourcing and sales.
I'm delighted that Barclay Jones is now working with recruitment companies to not simply implement Bullhorn Automation (AKA Herefish), but help our clients effectively integrate it into their workflows to improve speed and pipeline.
Recruitment Automation - The Ultimate ROI?
Recruitment leaders and recruiters, who want to work smarter with the data and systems they have will see recruitment automation as a lifesaver. In fact, Bullhorn Automation's ROI calculator gives you an idea of how many Teslas you could buy with its ROI!
It's never been more important to work with what you have, and simply "monetise" it.
You're likely to have all of the data you need, in fact, 72% of candidates placed last year, you already had, but spent time and money sourcing them elsewhere (facepalm!)
And you're 60-70% more likely to reconvert an existing client than make money from new clients.
But still, the chase is what's comfy; sourcing for 13 hours a week and not following up 80% of leads is the norm. Effective recruitment process is in the eye of the beholder. A lot is being left to chance.
Recruitment Automation = No Need for More Recruiters?
The recruitment sales model has always been to hire more people. When recruitment automation is mentioned as an enabler, recruiters frown at the thought of being replaced by robots. But automation isn't about replacing recruiters - it's about doing the recruitment jobs you don't have time (or people) to do. Best practice can be achieved!
Being part of a team who has worked in recruitment tech, training and marketing for 20 years, I'm often frustrated with how recruitment tech can unwittingly turn salespeople into admin. Surely tech is supposed to do the heavy lifting?
Recruitment Automation = A Time Saver
What do you want to do, but don't have time?
What should your recruiters be doing but don't do?
What can you automate that makes time for you to place more, bill more, sleep more?
We'd all love to go back and perfect our dirty data, but without time-machine tech, all we can do is be more effective with the future. I'm on a mission to save every recruiter 1 hour a day (30 days a year) so that they have more time to bill. Bullhorn Automation sits well within my team's arsenal.
Recruitment Automation Case Study
I have a client who uses Bullhorn and Bullhorn Automation (AKA Herefish) and we deliver all of his Bullhorn and Induction training. He had his best ever month this April (yes, this April... ) and is hiring his 3rd cohort for the year.
Bullhorn Automation (AKA Herefish) is embedded into his recruitment workflow. Recruiters simply select who they want to have calls with and Bullhorn Automation does the heavy lifting. Glorious!
