Quality Over Quantity: A Smart Strategy for Staffing Agencies

In modern recruiting, recruiters are now realizing that less is more. 

Imagine receiving 100 applicants and going through each application and learning that 90% of your applicants are either unqualified or unfit for the position you are trying to fill, tedious and time-consuming, right?

Wouldn’t it be nice if you are only going to review 10 applications, 90% of whom are high-caliber, top-notch candidates? This leaves you with more bandwidth for engaging and nurturing applicants and ensuring a positive candidate experience.

Employment Marketplace (EmInfo) explained the difference between having 100 random applications and having 10 highly qualified applicants. Focused energy on the 10 yields better results.

Tips on how to achieve high-quality applications

Use industry-specific or niche platform

With an industry-focused approach to recruiting, you’re more likely to attract candidates who are dedicated and passionate about their particular sector. Niche job boards tend to be most fruitful when hiring for highly specialized positions that require very specific qualifications.

Identify poor performing job boards

When you are fully aware of the performance of the job board you are using, then you will be able to identify what needs to be improved or whether to change or keep your existing job board provider.

Understand your current and historical data 

When you have a clear understanding of your data, you will be able to make adjustments to your existing processes to reach your target goals. You will have a clear view of what is not performing, whether the sales representative, job description, salary offer, etc.

Having a reliable and reputable Applicants Tracking System makes the whole process less cumbersome and they are worth every penny.
