How AI and ML are Transforming Staffing
Artificial intelligence (AI) brings value to staffing firms in recruiting, sourcing, back office, customer service, and marketing, resulting in cost reduction and higher revenue generation. As a result, AI adoption is accelerating across the staffing landscape as the industry invests in digital workplace initiatives.
In fact, AI is expected to have a transformative impact on staffing operations and be mainstream by 2023, driving greater efficiencies and higher productivity. Moreover, AI has the potential to fundamentally remake many aspects of staffing operations. StaffingTec will prepare you to harness the power of AI and intelligent technologies within your staffing organization.
Uberization of Staffing
Candidates, employees, and customers today run their entire lives from their mobile device. Native mobile staffing apps are transforming the staffing process with an Uber-like experience. In fact, mobile applications are accelerating the staffing process and raising customer and employee satisfaction, while lowering operating costs. Successful staffing firms that have deployed mobile are seeing breakthrough results – i.e. filling orders up to ten times faster with fewer recruiters and sourcers.

Intelligent Automation (IA)

In fact, staffing firms are accelerating investments in IA to deliver greater value at lower cost. Modern IA tools are making it easy to automate routine administrative activities and deliver consistent repeatable services.

With the rapidly evolving digital landscape, how do we harness emerging digital technologies and put them into effective use?

How should you evaluate and select the right products and services? In these sessions, learn how to strategically identify, evaluate, procure, and integrate technology solutions to address all aspects of your staffing business.
Emerging Technology Trends with Transformative Impact

How do you evolve your staffing business to seize opportunities enabled by new technologies? In these sessions, we explore tomorrow’s technologies that are shaping the staffing world and will be widely used by candidates and customers.
Mobile and Autonomous Staffing
Staffing firms are increasingly filling positions with minimal human involvement. The key enabler of autonomous staffing is mobile staffing apps. Candidates are screened in advance by recruiters and notified of opportunities through mobile apps – just like Uber notifies drivers of ride requests. With AI and automation progressing at a rapid pace, 30% of all temporary positions could be filled autonomously by 2030. A key success metric going forward will be the percentage and growth of job orders filled autonomously.
Blockchain Revolution in Staffing and Recruiting
Key tenets of blockchain — namely transparency, security, and accessibility — are poised to disrupt nearly every industry. During the 2020’s, blockchain will increasingly touch most staffing operations from recruiting, marketing, on boarding, credentialing, background checking, and digital payments.
Data protection and Cyber Security in Staffing
As staffing firms transform digitally, they are increasingly exposed to cyber-attacks and data breaches. According to a 2019 study by IBM, the average data breach involves 25,000 records at a cost per breached record of $150. Cybercrime represents big money for cybercriminals, which makes staffing firms vulnerable to data theft and holding data hostage. Staffing firms can also face steep state and federal fines as well as civil penalties when sensitive people records are compromised.
