While investments are essential to your business growth, choosing what resources to invest your hard-earned profit in is a tough decision. When you’re just starting out and your company is small, you may be able to “wing it.” But when you’re ready to take your staffing firm to the next level, it’s time to invest in the tools your team and your company needs to excel.
Here are a few ideas that bring the biggest ROI:
ATS. The value of the right applicant tracking system is virtually impossible to overstate. Choose a system that will integrate seamlessly into your currently processes and is easy to learn. Look for those that provide free training and upgrades. Consider what the ramp-up period will be for efficiency. An ATS can save time and money and prevent applicants from slipping through the cracks, but only if it is embraced by the team.
Marketing. Word of mouth may be sufficient when your firm is new, but a structured marketing program can keep your company growing and profitable. Book a consultation with a marketing firm experienced in marketing for staffing to find out what you can do within your budget. Whether it means optimizing your application for mobile or creating a custom inbound marketing program, the right team can create a program that will help you reach your goals.
Training. In the staffing industry, new developments are a constant. Whether it’s smarter ways to reach passive candidates, software that allows your team to operate more efficiently, or technologies that can change the staffing business entirely, well-trained employees can be the best way to future-proof your business.
Back office software. Managing the administrative details of operating your staffing firm can be one of the biggest drains on your time and resources. Why not automate as many of these tasks as you can so you can spend more time on big picture or revenue generating activities? Consider how technology can help with time savings.
Employee development. The top reasons people leave their job is because they are bored or have a disconnect with their manager. An employee development program can help to address both of these issues. By discussing with your employees and providing them with the resources and opportunities to reach them within the company, you can hold onto your top performers. Ongoing development training for managers can also help them to become better managers.
