The Staffing Stream
Marketing automation is a hot topic lately, and for good reason. Companies are focused not only on doing more with less but also better arming their sales teams with data about website visitors and leads. Marketing automation tools such as HubSpot, Marketo and Eloqua, to name just a few, enable companies to execute marketing campaigns more efficiently while providing deep analytics and data on prospect and client behavior for the sales teams. So is marketing automation right for staffing companies? Here are the pros and cons.

How the rise of privacy in social media will change the way we think about employees
Social media has by and large been a boon to recruiters and HR professionals. Once upon a time, employers had fairly scant information about the candidates they came across. Resumés reported professional highlights, and employers could glean some small insights into a candidate’s personality via interviews and behavioral assessments. If you were lucky, a professional reference might offer some useful insight into a candidate’s career history. For the most part, candidates were in control of the flow of information: they crafted their resumés; they choose which personal details they were willing to give out; they may have even coached their references (not terribly common, but still a possibility). Social media changed all of this.

Struggling to fill that open position? You're not alone
A declining unemployment rate — now at 6.1 percent — would seem to mean that employers are packing their payrolls with workers. But many businesses say they are having a harder time filling open positions this year than last year, according to a new survey. The poll, conducted by franchise staffing firm Express Employment Professionals, reports that 83 percent of the 115 company's franchises surveyed said that it was "somewhat difficult" or "very difficult" to fill a job opening this year. That's up from 78 percent who reported the same for the survey in 2013.
