Superior Staffing Performance

There was no way I was paying over $2000 for this survey, but the high level key findings were readable. If you're curious about a specific industry, then this might be for you.

There were a couple of key findings that I thought were interesting. First, the creation of a talent pool to draw off of and the ability to forecast future recruiting needs was a significant indicator of leading companies.

Second, technology is not highly utilized even though it's available. While most leading organizations use ATS of some sort, only half use automated screening of candidate profiles. The automated screening could be an automated search so the recruiter doesn't have to use key word searches manually, or they could be candidate tests (on-line) that filter for suitability. This type of pre-screening was found to lower time to fill (a requisition) by 2 days.
