ReachHow many people do you reach in a day? A week? A month? Whether you are running a full desk, strictly recruiting or bringing in new business, success requires you to constantly increase your reach. The proliferation of powerful sourcing technologies, bigger job boards, and social media channels mean that not only you, but your clients and competition have access to more candidates than ever before. The quality of your reach is vital.
SpeedEven if the right candidate is out there somewhere, alone it may take you a long time to source her and then of course there is the screening process. In today’s competitive recruiting world, speed will make or break you.
What if you could collaborate with other firms to gain fast access to the most qualified candidates for your client’s open positions? That’s Wikinomics.
What if you could run your business with outside resources, accessing account managers and recruiters only as you need them? That’s Wikinomics.
As more and more firms look to expand geographically, the cost to do so and risk associated with breaking into new territory is significant.
TechnologyIn the past, it was difficult to work with other firms because of technical limitations. It was hard to find other firms, hard to know what they specialize in, hard to communicate, and hard to trust them. Online communications advancements bridge this gap.
The pervasive growth of Web technology has enabled huge advances in personal and business “mass collaboration.” All types of industries are seeing advances including telecom (Skype), biotechnology (human genome project), classifieds (eBay), content (Wikipedia), software (Linux, Firefox), and retailing (Amazon reviews). Working with hundreds or even thousands of other recruiters will enable you to grow faster.
To help recruiting and staffing professionals succeed in this new reality, Bullhorn recently launched PowerFill, a network of recruiters supported by robust collaboration technology. Much like the Multiple Listing Service (MLS) helped transform the real-estate industry through firm-to-firm collaboration, PowerFill helps staffing firms collaborate to increase their revenue and bottom line.
