Well maybe extravaganza is the wrong word, but perhaps it isn’t too far off. On 27 September, UK Recruiter is hosting a Recruitment Software and Innovative Technologies Showcase event for HR in-house and agency recruiters to help them find the best tool to bring their recruitment to the next level. Well, the timing couldn’t be better!
According to Financial Times, UK employment is the strongest it has been in nearly four years. The article states that employment showed strong growth, with the level up 236,000 on the quarter to 29.56m, which is the largest quarterly rise seen in the past two years. While the Olympics did contribute to that increase, some economists feel that the growth was still an improvement in the long run.
As we all know, positive employment rates often translate into more vacancies! If the number of vacancies increases – it’s time for recruiters to get to work. In order to recruit effectively and efficiently, recruiters need to ensure that their processes are in tip-top shape so time-to-fill and quality-of-hire can be optimized when positions need to be filled. Without proper procedures in place, these two metrics will suffer tremendously. The best way to do this is to automate the manual processes that contribute to inefficiencies within the department.
Now, let’s get back to information about the event on 27 September. If you are a recruiter looking to optimize processes by automating time-consuming tasks, you should definitely attend this event. As an attendee, you will learn about products from many technology companies in order to find the solution that fits your needs. And, don’t forget to check out iCIMS.
