Staffing agencies understand the importance of timely, organized communication for effective talent acquisition. Simultaneously, many recruiters struggle with manually managing hundreds of applicants in various stages of the recruitment process! Keeping up with emails, applications, interview notes, and documents can be overwhelming and ineffective – even creating a negative candidate experience at times.
As a recruitment company, an applicant tracking system is one of the most valuable tools. Is your recruitment team still manually sorting through countless candidate applications? Do important emails tend to get lost over time? Are interviews, schedules, and appointment managed across multiple applications? Have you lost and let a top-notch candidate slip through the cracks due to forgetfulness or human error?

The time is ripe for medical staffing to help the hospital system, and health systems more broadly. As the American Association of Colleges of Nursing (AACN) states, “The U.S. is projected to experience a shortage of Registered Nurses (RNs) that is expected to intensify as Baby Boomers age and the need for healthcare grows.” The same might be said for other segments of medicine, such as technicians, physicians in rural locations and physician’s assistants.
As the staffing and contract work market grows, the reality is that employee on-boarding must change, too. As the federal government loosens restrictions for I-9 compliance, building remote work into the process, staffing organizations can now resort to virtual methods of verifying hired employees’ identities. (And not only staffing organizations and enterprises, but hiring organizations in general.)
It is irrefutable that technology is hugely important to society and business today.
We see the effects everywhere. In medicine, in accounting, in how we interact. There is scarcely a corner of our lives left untouched by technology, for better or worse. Though in business, it’s generally for better.
Bloomberg reports that, in a survey of 2,000+ workers in Europe and North America, respondents say they would rather be replaced in their jobs by robots than other humans.

In this post, we'll specifically be addressing recruiting automation and its effects.
