Recruiters need more phone time. In fact, “Why can’t they just get on the phone?” is the common mantra of many of the recruitment leaders that we work with, and with Covid creating distractions, and holes in recruitment sales pipelines, picking up the phone has never been more important.
The recruitment process has become unfit. Too much data and too many systems makes the recruitment process sluggish at best…
In fact 72% of placements made last year were with data you already had on your Adapt Recruitment CRM before you sourced it elsewhere. 13 hours a week spent sourcing candidates you already have… crazy!
Let’s take some measurements first, Recruiters!
