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.
Efficiency is key when recruiting new candidates, and computer telephony integration (CTI) systems are allowing users to manage their calls in a variety of new ways. With a plethora of features designed around productivity, recruiters can now seamlessly phone potential candidates, record their conversations and collate notes within a few minutes, all from their chosen CRM system.
Very frequently in businesses, management sees significant periods of time in which new hires are not yet contributing to sales, internal culture, and the overall success of the company. In many cases, it can take eight months for a newly hired employee to reach full productivity. One of the best ways to have new employees become successful, is to have a great on-boarding process.
Within a Sales team, your phone system can play a large role in lowering the ramp time for new hires. Why not utilize the tool already embedded in the day to day of your business to train and motivate new hires? Below are 5 tips on how you can lower ramp time and on-boarding for new hires:
The CloudCall Team had an amazing time at Bullhorn Engage 2017 last week! Every year Engage surpasses itself, with the speakers, sessions and attendees.

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.
