Recruitment Automations Kicking Butt: Clean Data, Speedy Processes, Less Staff, More Sales
Recruiters need more warm calls, cleaner and compliant data, sustainable sales, and more happiness. Recruitment leaders need to grow a sustainable team of productive recruiters, and generate less of a need to hire. Which recruitment automations can make this happen?If you are a Bullhorn client, you will be hearing about Herefish. Recruitment Marketers and leaders are excited about how it can do some serious heavy lifting in a year where we all need to get lean and mean! As part of our Herefish implementations, we’re being asked a lot about the specifics of how recruitment automation can actually help recruiters, apart from the obvious mass marketing and communications piece. So, I’ve listed some of my recruitment automation ideas which are going down a treat with my clients.Clean Data, Speedier Processes, Happier Recruiters, Less Need for HiringCovid, lockdown, home schooling – all of these disruptions have taught us a lot about Sales, marketing data, tech, hiring, staff morale, parenting!

3 Ways Recruitment Automation Can Help Increase Recruitment Sales
Recruiters! With 80% of your day spent doing the wrong things, having to network around 7 people per sale, and the growing trend on relying on DATA to make your sale, what's does 2021 look like, and how can you use recruitment automation to generate more speed and pipeline?My Interview With Billy at HerefishI spoke with Billy Davis at Herefish - who's mission it is to revolutionise the recruitment industry. We've been working closely with him help our mutual clients to automate their recruitment processes. I asked Billy 3 questions about how recruitment automation can help drive sales (and productivity).1. Billy, what are your thoughts B2B sales with respect to how to use automation for data-based selling?I think providing a great experience will always have a positive place in sales. With the advancement of AI and machine learning I can see a time in which data becomes the biggest decision making factor in the sales process. We already see some of those shifts in the market today. Poor data quality undermines the effectiveness of AI and machine learning. The biggest benefit of Automation will be the increase in data quality. Identifying and fixing incomplete records, reducing manual data entry, and copying information already known from one area and transporting it to another are just a few mechanisms to achieve this. 2. Billy, how can recruitment automation help with nail the sale?The most important advice here is to create a personal or employment brand so compelling that it can reach all those levels of connections. Recruitment automation can help in two critical capacities. It can act as your megaphone to the market and amplify your reach. It can ensure fantastic experience for candidates/clients so you have as many promoters as possible. 3. Billy, how can automation help recruiters focus on what they need to do to attract, engage, convert and retain – rather than procrastinate?Automation is a tool to solve this problem. Not a solution in and of itself. Understanding the difference between value and non-value activities and coming up with a strategy to change existing behaviour is the ultimate solution. Automation can accelerate that strategy when deployed correctly. Examples include; Eliminating busywork, real time reminders/alerts with process instructions, client/candidate journeys to eliminate lack of communication at any recruitment stage, placement check ins and touchpoints, activity/behaviour driven communication and follow up, and freeing up time for relationship building. ---I'm excited about how recruitment automation will positively impact on the day of a recruiter - generating kore time, better 3Cs (candidates, clients, colleague) expectations and experience - and really help the industry get back on track after such a disruptive 2020.PS: Lisa is running some really useful Recruitment Automation Webinars with Ben Carter at Bullhorn.BOOK YOUR PLACE / WATCH THE RECORDINGSREAD ABOUT RECRUITMENT AUTOMATIONBOOK A CALL TO DISCUSS BULLHORN AND HEREFISH
