Today’s candidates have high expectations for staffing firms. What used to be the priority for candidates – getting a stable job – has changed in the wake of digital transformation and a younger talent pool. The modern candidate wants speed, flexibility, choice, and happiness. Everything in the younger generation’s life has been made easier through digital, and they now make up an increasingly large percentage of candidates.
New “tech-first” employment systems, built on talent communities rather than talent pools, are here to fulfill this value system. They differentiate themselves from traditional models by focusing on the user experience. After all, when talent is in control, they’ll select who they work with based on who provides them with the best, most seamless experience.
What does this mean for your staffing firm? Put simply, the world of work is changing, and your candidate onboarding process needs to change with it. Listen to this discussion on how to turn onboarding from a detractor to a driver of ratings, reviews, referrals, and redeployments.
