For staffing solution providers, the progression of digital technologies in recent years has brought an upsurge of opportunities. With automation, enterprise data management, and machine learning, staffing enterprises can exceed their competitors in the race to match the right jobseeker with the right company. Digital transformation has revolutionized the way staffing is conducted nowadays. The decline of manual processes is helping businesses to become more effective and productive, with diversifying time and focussing on other projects that add value to the business.
Digital transformation is highly erratic as well and is leading many staffing solution providers to rethink their recruitment strategies.
Challenge With Finding Talent
Due to this evolution in the digital ecosystem, the pertinent challenge is to find the specialized skill talent to work with new technologies such as Salesforce or Dynamics 365 CRM implementation, creating solutions with Power Apps, integrating SharePoint and D365, advanced data analytics, cloud computing and so on. Any recruiter today will tell you how shallow the talent pool is for skilled labor. It’s a competitive zone for talent, with demand for skilled labor superseding the supply of qualified candidates.
This is a catch-22 situation and it highlights the increasing need for staffing firms to master new digital techniques to find, reach and engage potential candidates.
No More Antiquated Methods
Traditional methods of recruitment are being done away with as they no longer fit the current business trends. Staffing solution providers are asking themselves how they need to alter their staffing strategy to complete major initiatives quickly, manage ongoing business challenges and encounter not only the constant digital disruptions but also the aggressive competition for skilled talent.
To create the right combination of talent, many hiring managers are leaning towards a strategic and flexible staffing model designed for the digital age. This approach includes a mix of permanent employees who deal with critical initiatives, and skilled Consultants who support them and that can provide a fresh perspective, additional competencies and perform excellent work on an as-needed basis.
Looking at the current market trends, most companies are looking for help outside for improving their performance of key business functions as well as running their operations. They are now adopting a blend that is based on a solution that offers both consulting and staffing services. For staffing solution firms, digitization of business process and recruitment methodology has helped them reach out to companies who look for specialized Consultants to implement let’s say, a specific CRM software and can simultaneously address performance issues in key business functions.
As a result of these kinds of business disruptions and digital transformation, there arises a need for a recruitment model that depends on a wider selection of staffing measures and technology solutions. Through the tactical use of comprehensive staffing arrangements, a staffing solution firm can better position their organization to not only keep up with changes but also lead it.
