Chicago, IL (PRWEB) March 17, 2015
Spark Hire (http://www.sparkhire.com), the leading online video interviewing platform, recently launched a whitepaper encouraging staffing professionals to utilize the various technology readily available to them for connecting with the great talent that their clients want and need. The free to download whitepaper entitled, “The 2015 Staffing Industry Trend Report”, details several industry trends that staffing professionals must anticipate and adopt to better recruit for their clients.
“With the staffing industry rapidly growing, there is a great need for staffing and recruiting professionals to have a competitive edge,” says Spark Hire CEO, Josh Tolan. “We created this whitepaper to aid staffing and recruiting firms in adopting the new and powerful technology that will allow them to more quickly connect with skilled candidates who will really contribute to their clients’ success.”
As was the case in 2014, social media, mobile, and video interviewing, among others, will continue to be powerful tools that staffing companies must implement into their recruiting strategies. Over 60 percent of professionals say they have used their mobile device for their job search, while 45 percent have actually used them to conveniently apply for jobs. This shows the growing need for staffing companies to increase their mobile recruiting efforts to match candidate demand and avoid missing out on a talented pool of potential hires. Additionally, social recruiting has become the norm with over 90 percent of recruiters using social networking sites to support their recruiting efforts. Social professional networks like LinkedIn are the fastest growing source of quality hires globally, increasing 73 percent over the past four years.
Video interviews are a trend that won’t be dying out anytime soon because they allow staffing and recruiting professionals to place great talent for clients without wasting time, money, or resources. As detailed by the whitepaper, screening takes on a new meaning for staffing companies with the utilization of video interviewing. Ten one-way video interviews can be reviewed in the time it takes for a staffing pro to perform just a single phone screen.
