Optimize Recruiter Productivity. Enterprises are increasingly relying on their extended workforce as it trends toward an estimated 50% of the total workforce only a decade from now.  And while increasing use of contingent workforce means new growth opportunities for staffing companies, intensifying competition, coupled with escalating labor market pressures calls for new levels of sophistication and strategies.  

The Challenge

Staffing firms are under increasing pressure to improve gross margins and optimize recruiter productivity.  

CompetitionMarket competition is rising, and the labor market is more complex, both of which are bad for gross margins. The number of staffing firms submitting per job order is increasing, even as new types of firms enter the market.

Rate CardsRate card maximums are squeezing gross margins, rate cards are growing more granular and dynamic, bill rates on submittals are converging, all requiring staffing firms to expand their offerings to offset the market share declines.

Escalating Labor Market PressuresAt the same time, intensifying labor market pressures add to the challenge. Firms must find new ways to boost recruiter onboarding, productivity, and retention to offset labor market pressure.

Playbooks of the past are not enough to keep up with the changing needs of the business. Winners will separate themselves from their competition by creating higher value to their clients, better enabling their recruiters with market intelligence, selecting the best requisitions to pursue, and putting those requisitions into the right channels.

Each of these challenges can be addressed through data and technology.
