When employers or staffing agencies manage temporary or contingent employees, they have to stay on top of a great deal of information. Their responsibilities include sourcing workers with the right skills, maintaining their schedules and running payroll. Hiring Logistics from Jobscience offers the tools for each of these functions and more, keeping track of what workers are doing each day. 

With Hiring Logistics, staffing professionals gain enhanced visibility into every aspect of managing employees. Using a single interface, recruiters find the right people, communicate with them and ensure they are showing up to the jobsite on time. Here's how access to detailed information transforms the daily work of staffing professionals:

Empowering communication

"It's simple and intuitive for staffing professionals to spot openings."

Building a successful workforce and maximizing productivity begins with finding employees who possess relevant experience and opening the lines of communication. With talent logistics, prospective employees can create contact records almost instantly. From there, it's simple and intuitive for staffing professionals to spot openings in the schedule and use advanced filters to find individuals with the necessary skills and availability.

The interface also provides straightforward ways to exchange information about these positions by responding to calendar requests and sending messages. Staffers and workers connect with each other, building long-term relationships that can extend through multiple jobs. Over time, recruiters can find ways to take more effective action in their hiring practices as they develop a deeper understanding of the demands of employers and the needs of staff.

With Hiring Logistics, recruiters are empowered to manage schedules for thousands of contractors. This staffing software is optimized for operating in today's gig economy, giving workers greater convenience and control over their own time. The functions and information temporary employees need are all centralized in a single, mobile interface, so they can concentrate on doing the job they were hired to complete

Tracking employees to boost productivity

As NBC News reported, it's become increasingly common for employers in a variety of industries to use mobile technology to monitor workers. In many cases, a smartphone can take the place of older techniques like punching in with a time card, informing the employee's supervisor of his or her location and status throughout work hours. Public utilities providers, restaurants and retail stores have all successfully explored using this approach to gather data and keep workers on track.

Hiring Logistics includes a mapping function that makes it possible to keep tabs on a workforce across multiple sites. Staffers acquire constant awareness of the labor needs in each location and any problems that develop with assigned employees. The interface enables smart remote management, catching instances of workers missing shifts or habitually arriving late.

With mobile tools allowing recruiters to track every shift, they can take proactive steps to improve staffing and management processes. Real-time updates enable planning more accurately for the months ahead and maximizing the use of personnel and resources. Employers and staffing professionals see a more reliable picture of what's happening on the ground so they can add, replace or relocate workers as necessary.

Making monitoring work

Harvard Business Review noted evidence from studies that suggested tracking employee behavior could be an effective way of improving their performance. For instance, monitoring whether hospital staff members washed their hands throughout the day led to greater compliance with rules and regulations. However, it's important to treat tracking as one part of an overall approach focused on showing employees why the required steps matter and getting the best value out of their work hours.

Bringing multiple tools and processes together is one advantage of the way Hiring Logistics integrates monitoring into the same interface as other essential functions. In compliance, that means informing recruiters of special training requirements, hazards and exposure limits that go along with a particular job. With a stronger awareness of where workers are deployed, their assigned duties and how much time they spend on-site each day, management can make more informed calls.

The agility and transparency provided by the recruitment software also makes a big difference in controlling finances. The data gathered by Hiring Logistics allows staffing professionals to run payroll faster and quickly generate invoices. In addition, they can use this information to look ahead and more efficiently provide for the needs of clients and workers.

Employers and staffing professionals can reap great advantages from getting a new perspective on how they are utilizing a workforce. Jobscience's Hiring Logistics offers that fresh point of view in a powerful, agile interface that's fully integrated into the Salesforce platform. With capabilities for seamless management, communication and monitoring, staffers get a deeper understanding of how workers are spending their days and how they can take action to streamline and scale their business.
