We’re not going to tease you: the competitive advantage your Professional Employer Organization needs this year is…an applicant tracking system!
“Wait,” you’re saying, “What? We’re not a staffing firm! An ATS is for recruiters!”
Well, you’d be right…if this were 2016. But it’s 2020 and you may already know this, but here’s an important fact in black and white (and boldfaced): your competitors already have one!
The PEO sector grows at a 14 percent higher rate than the U.S. economy overall and if you want to remain competitive, it’s wise to offer an expanded service offering.
Offering talent acquisition services is a terrific new revenue stream for you because almost four out of 10 business owners plan to hire staff in the coming months and 26 percent of small business owners have no recruiting or talent acquisition strategy in place. Hiring the right people is one of the top pain points small business owners have.
Not all PEOs can help their clients with finding talent, so helping them with it now means you’ll be ahead of the curve – and other PEOs who start offering this service in the next few months and years.
Helping your customers with their sourcing and staffing needs can be very lucrative for you. Staffing and recruiting sales increased by almost 4 percent in 2018. What’s more, the sector’s peak pre-Great Recession (2008) sales figure was $112 billion, while the industry saw overall sales of $167 billion 10 years later. What’s more, the staffing industry as a whole is expected to grow by 3 percent 2020.
Your PEO won’t be a true staffing/recruiting agency, of course, but by helping your customers attract and hire workers, you can easily add a lucrative revenue stream to your business…while staying competitive.
