The office desk has a lot going for it. Your PC’s desktop is crammed with every file you’ve ever needed from the past five years. That teddy bear you picked up from a recruiting fair the week before you achieved top biller is keeping a watchful eye on proceedings. Your drawers are full of an array of biscuits, sweets and crisps that would bring an Instagram ‘influencer’ out in cold sweats.
But let’s be honest. Sometimes, the experience isn’t going to be great.
As you all know, the recruitment process can be fraught with calamities, pitfalls and disaster. Everything that could go wrong probably has gone wrong at some point in your careers.
Here at CloudCall, we’ve all been through the process in one way or another. While we’ve helped countless recruiters provide a better candidate experience, there are some situations that we just can’t help you with. So, we thought we’d go around the office and give you some of our worst recruitment nightmares.
It’s been one week since Bullhorn Live and we’re all still talking about it!
This year, Bullhorn Live was even bigger and better, with 2 days filled with information-packed sessions and workshops from industry-leaders who shared such valuable insights with us.
According to a recent survey carried out by Bullhorn, improving the management of client and candidate relationships is a top priority for 42% of recruiters. Managing those relationships often comes down to the quality of the conversations that you have.
One of the most common concerns when starting a content strategy is “what do I write about?”. Writers are generally told to write about what they know – and in this case, it’s no different. Write about your company, the products and services you provide and your industry. Write about the concerns and issues that you hear about from your customers and prospects and how they can be solved. Content marketing is all about sharing ideas with the people within the industries that you cater for and should provide value, not only for your business but for your content readers too.
We’ve always known that creating quality content is key for any business. At CloudCall, we like to share our knowledge and ideas about what strategies have worked effectively for us, what issues we have come across and how we have resolved them. The fact that our business caters to different industries has also ensured that our knowledge is ever-growing, providing us with the right resources and ideas that we use to help our customers and prospects drive their businesses forward.
Measuring sales performance helps you improve the efficiency of your sales team. With your sales team consistently performing better, your business can generate more revenue and continue to grow. Last week we shared tips on how you can use telephony integration (CTI) like CloudCall, along with your CRM, to improve sales management and enhance your team performance. We showed you an example of how we use Salesforce custom fields and dashboards to monitor team calling activity. This week, we share some practical examples – using CloudCall Dashboards to track team performance and to demonstrate the importance of observing your team’s calling activities in more detail.
For most of us, the word ‘disruption’ has negative connotations associated with – generally unwanted or unplanned – disturbance to an activity or process. This is, however, untrue for digital disruption which is truly transforming various industries – for the better. Take the Recruitment industry, for example. Digital disruption is helping recruiters become more productive, freeing up their time to attract and connect with more candidates and clients.
From working with many recruitment businesses that use our product, we have an understanding of the time-pressured environments that recruiters can operate in, and equally, understand just how long it can take to search for a candidate record or upload detailed call notes straight to your CRM system.
