How eSignature Revolutionizes The Recruitment Process & Staffing Industry

 

Contributed by Jill Stoppard, Senior Communications Consultant at TargetRecruit

 

The Employment Services industry is one of the top ten fastest growing industries in the world. Now more than ever, companies are relying on staffing agencies to source temporary and full-time, direct hire workers. In 2012 alone, Staffing Industry Analysts estimated the global staffing market to be worth approximately $406 billion with a 9% growth over the previous year.

 

Despite the epic growth of the industry, many of the customs and processes of the staffing business have remained the same since William Kelly started the first staffing company - Kelly Services - in 1946.

 

The advent of the internet somewhat helped to digitize the process of recruitment as candidates switched from applying for jobs through newspapers to applying through job boards and sites like LinkedIn and Twitter. However, the backend processes of guiding the candidate through the whole gamut – application all the way to eventual onboarding -- have remained paper based, time-consuming, confusing and costly.

 

Recently, the tide has shifted. Staffing companies and larger HR departments look towards electronic signing procedures to speed up the recruitment process and get workers onboarded faster. Companies like TargetRecruit - who provide an ecosystem of recruitment related apps for staffing companies and HR teams - use electronic signatures to streamline the recruitment process, save time, reduce costs and get candidates to work faster.

 

Electronic signatures help recruiters make their core activities like hiring, on boarding, and other functions paper-free. Digital workflow offers a full spectrum of advantages like cutting registration time and errors, as well as enabling compliance. Overall, the experience is 180 degrees in a positive direction for all parties. Services like TargetRecruit are available in multiple languages and easy to integrate with HRIS solutions, thus helping meet the recruitment needs of global enterprises.

 

Reena Gupta, CEO of TargetRecruit says it all: “Electronic signing solves a key problem in the staffing industry where paper resumes and printed onboarding documentation remain the standard method of information collection. DocuSign enables TargetRecruit to provide an easy to use all-digital solution for the staffing industry that saves clients time and money while increasing productivity.”

 

Pain points effectively soothed. Wouldn’t you say it’s time to retune the HR and Recruiting agency to play a digital beat? Paper has enjoyed 68 years in the industry. It’s time for a change and TargetRecruit is ready to sound the charge.

Serverless applications increase developer productivity and time to market, by freeing engineers from spending time on infrastructure provisioning, configuration and management. Serverless also simplifies Operations and reduces cost - as the Kubernetes container infrastructure required to run these applications is automatically spun up and scaled precisely with the workload, to optimally handle all runtime requests. Recent advances in open source technology now allow organizations to run Serv...
In a recent survey, Sumo Logic surveyed 1,500 customers who employ cloud services such as Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure, and Google Cloud Platform (GCP). According to the survey, a quarter of the respondents have already deployed Docker containers and nearly as many (23 percent) are employing the AWS Lambda serverless computing framework. It's clear: serverless is here to stay. The adoption does come with some needed changes, within both application development and operations. Th...
The benefits of automated cloud deployments for speed, reliability and security are undeniable. The cornerstone of this approach, immutable deployment, promotes the idea of continuously rolling safe, stable images instead of trying to keep up with managing a fixed pool of virtual or physical machines. In this talk, we'll explore the immutable infrastructure pattern and how to use continuous deployment and continuous integration (CI/CD) process to build and manage server images for any platform....

Containers and Kubernetes allow for code portability across on-premise VMs, bare metal, or multiple cloud provider environments. Yet, despite this portability promise, developers may include configuration and application definitions that constrain or even eliminate application portability. In this session we'll describe best practices for "configuration as code" in a Kubernetes environment. We will demonstrate how a properly constructed containerized app can be deployed to both Amazon and Azure ...
Enterprises are adopting Kubernetes to accelerate the development and the delivery of cloud-native applications. However, sharing a Kubernetes cluster between members of the same team can be challenging. And, sharing clusters across multiple teams is even harder. Kubernetes offers several constructs to help implement segmentation and isolation. However, these primitives can be complex to understand and apply. As a result, it’s becoming common for enterprises to end up with several clusters. This...
Is advanced scheduling in Kubernetes achievable?Yes, however, how do you properly accommodate every real-life scenario that a Kubernetes user might encounter? How do you leverage advanced scheduling techniques to shape and describe each scenario in easy-to-use rules and configurations? In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 21st Cloud Expo, Oleg Chunikhin, CTO at Kublr, answered these questions and demonstrated techniques for implementing advanced scheduling. For example, using spot instances and co...
At CloudEXPO Silicon Valley, June 24-26, 2019, Digital Transformation (DX) is a major focus with expanded DevOpsSUMMIT and FinTechEXPO programs within the DXWorldEXPO agenda. Successful transformation requires a laser focus on being data-driven and on using all the tools available that enable transformation if they plan to survive over the long term.

Using serverless computing has a number of obvious benefits over traditional application infrastructure - you pay only for what you use, scale up or down immediately to match supply with demand, and avoid operating any server infrastructure at all. However, implementing maintainable and scalable applications using serverless computing services like AWS Lambda poses a number of challenges. The absence of long-lived, user-managed servers means that states cannot be maintained by the service. Lo...
Today most companies are adopting or evaluating container technology - Docker in particular - to speed up application deployment, drive down cost, ease management and make application delivery more flexible overall. As with most new architectures, this dream takes significant work to become a reality. Even when you do get your application componentized enough and packaged properly, there are still challenges for DevOps teams to making the shift to continuous delivery and achieving that reducti...
