Recruitment Agency Balancing Act

Cost reduction, compliance and enhanced worker support: The recruitment agency balancing act

August 18, 2020

Is it possible to achieve these in equal measure?

The simple answer is yes and it can be implemented into your business quickly and effortlessly. But how?

Throughout the current pandemic, many businesses have suffered greatly, recruitment agencies have inarguably been one of the hardest hit. With a significant drop in the number of vacancies, a reduction in working hours across many industries and the mass job cuts we will continue to see following the end of Furlough funding, recruitment agencies have had to respond fast with new strategies to survive.  Strategies that include finding new markets, bolstering existing client relationships, and looking for ways to increase candidate retention and reduce absence are key.  But for most agency owners right now, the priority is overhead and cost reduction, and finding ways to streamline back-office operations.  Achieving cost savings that don’t jeopardise your candidate’s experience or their compliance are more difficult to achieve.

Boost Your Bottom Line

Recruitment businesses who have chosen to partner with Hive360 have seen payroll and back-office overheads reduce dramatically, adding an average of 5% or more to the bottom line through internal process efficiency gains and significant cost savings on current employment administration and benefits supply chain.
