We are fast approaching the start of another exciting year for the Staffing/Recruitment Industry. So, recruiters, are you ready for 2019?
Time is money, be it 2000, 2018, or 2025.
Time can often feel like the thing we have the least of. While it isn’t possible to physically create more hours in the day, we can call on tech to help us get more done in less time. Of course, there are template responses to this question, use an Applicant Tracking System, automize, ect. But, what else can you do to get that edge and be more productive in the upcoming new year?
You could use other applications to streamline your talent management and improve your sourcing techniques. Check out these apps that can help you maximize your productivity in the limited time that you are given each day.

Billed as the ’email-killer’, this app does just that. It feels like a mix between email and WhatsApp and simplifies messaging with colleagues or clients.

Invites to parties, emails offering discounts on the shopping you haven’t started yet, all of these notifications can be distracting. Freedom allows you to block the internet and social media altogether, or just specific apps or websites of your choice. You simply select the device and sites, decide how long you want this to be blocked for, and get to work distraction free.
