For staffing firms, sourcing qualified candidates and providing them with an excellent experience are the keys to success. They’re also the biggest challenges. To solve these challenges, fast-growth agencies use marketing and sales automation tools.

But, until recently, there was a major gap in the tech stack at most staffing firms. While referrals have long been recognized as the single best source of high-quality talent, most agencies were still using cumbersome analog referral processes.

The demands of 2020 have intensified the competitive landscape, spurring staffing firms to redouble their efforts to use software to gain an advantage. “The major trend we’re seeing this year is that staffing firms are trying to work smarter by automating repetitive tasks,” said Rob Mann, host of the well-known industry podcast You Own the Experience.

That’s why many of today’s fastest-growing staffing companies partner with Staffing Referrals.

Staffing Referrals created the Automated Referral ManagementTM (ARM) category and remains the only ARM platform specifically designed for the staffing industry. Already this year, more than 8,000 brand ambassadors have used the staffing software to send over 10 million automated messages, generating thousands of referral leads and placements for staffing firms.

“Staffing Referrals took our referral program to the next level,” said Matt Telmanik, President of CCS Construction Staffing. “Referrals are our most profitable source of leads, but the value of the software goes beyond increased placements. Staffing Referrals simplified our program from top to bottom. That’s more than just money in the bank — it’s also more productive recruiters and more satisfied candidates.”

David Folwell, President of Staffing Referrals, commented: “Our focus is helping staffing agencies grow faster by putting the right people in the right jobs. We knew referrals were top-of-mind when we built the platform, but we’ve been amazed by the demand for our product this year. We’re excited to continue to help the staffing industry embrace the digital transformation and overcome the challenges of 2020 and beyond.”
