ATS and Recruiting Software Companies to See Business Increase

It’s no surprise that the current economic recession has had a negative impact on business, and during times when companies are hiring fewer employees, ATS (Click here) and recruiting software companies also begin to suffer.

Fortunately, however, the opposite also is true. That means as companies begin to feel more financially stable and want to start hiring new employees and creating new jobs, recruiting companies can expect to see a surge in business. According to a new report, that is already beginning to happen.

Bullhorn, a staffing and recruiting software company, recently released “Recovery: Are We There Yet?” For the report, the company asked staffing and recruiting professionals about their expectations for economic recovery and its effect on the industry.

The results found that many companies anticipate business will improve by the middle of next year. Of the respondents, 60 percent said business has already improved or would improve before the end of the year, while 22 percent said business will pick up by the end of Q1 2010.

Despite the fact that 54 percent of respondents saw decreases in revenue and profit, there were optimists across the entire recruiting spectrum, with nearly 50 percent of companies expecting increases in revenue and profit during the second half of next year.

The report further found:

  • Almost one in three respondents said business has already begun improving.
  • About 67 percent of companies expect revenue and profit to increase by the end of this year.
  • About 54 percent of respondents who said business has already improved expect this year’s profits to equal or exceed last year’s numbers.
  • Companies that have seen an increase in business are more likely than their less optimistic colleagues to place contract workers and less likely to place temporary workers and executives.
  • Improving companies were more likely to believe that social media tools were effective.
  • All respondents consider referrals and cold calling to be the most effective traditional techniques for generating new leads.
