When booking a person on to a shift you need to ascertain their availability, their suitability & their interest in the job. Without your own job market you achieve this filtering by sending SMS to staff or calling them to see if all three factors coincide with the details of your job. This is time consuming and costs money. It’s also potentially damaging for the agency brand as staff will register and never ever hear from the agency again.
Managing your own job market addresses all of these redundancies:
Time – By publishing your job to your market place, your staff are able to review all open opportunities, review the details of that job from description through to dates, location, shift times and pay and then made a decision on whether to apply. At this point, no time has been spent by the staff manager in ascertaining any of these particulars with staff.
Accuracy – Staff confirm their suitability and availability in their application. Information that can be lost on a phone based booking is all noted, increasing the booking accuracy.
Cost Saving – No SMS notifications or phone calls, and far less time spent by the staff managers means booking costs are reduced.
Reputation – Giving staff the opportunity to view and apply to all opportunities means your staff are always up to date and don’t feel like they are never offered work. WIth a simple way to decline applications, they don’t feel ignored and it ensures that your staff managers can be accused of booking favorites, an accusation that can lead to agencies gaining a bad reputation.
