Pandemic Led to Notable Uptick in AI and Cloud Implementation in Staffing Agency Solutions

In 2020, companies and their employees faced unprecedented challenges as they shifted to online and work from home practices. The year was extremely challenging for recruitment agencies.

  • As per the Global Recruitment Insights and Data, 2022, two out of five agencies reported year-on-year revenue losses in 2020, which hampered the demand for staffing agency software amid pandemic.

In response to the pandemic, staffing agencies adopted virtual recruitment practices to maintain the business continuity.

  • As per the COVID-19 Impact Survey, staffing agencies focused on investment and utilization of recruitment technologies while candidate sourcing, application tracking, resume harvesting, and others. Further, it stated, agencies leveraging tools for communicating and relationship-building with candidates, clients, and teams.

Artificial Intelligence (AI) assists businesses with predictive analysis to automate recruiting. It accomplishes this by using machine learning to match candidates to the most appropriate job profiles.

  • As of 2020, 65% of HR organizations already use AI for talent acquisition and by 2023, 77% of HR organizations are likely to use the same for recruitment.

Furthermore, most of the players are providing AI-powered platforms for smoother recruitment processes done by staffing agencies, HRs, and others. For instance,

  • Skillate, an AI recruiting platform, is a refined analyzing engine that streamlines and speeds the hiring process. It delivers intelligent hiring services powered by AI, people analytics, and better applicant experiences.

Rising Adoption of Cloud-Based Solutions in Staffing Agencies

Software as a Service (SaaS) and cloud-based software in general have been gradually increasing in popularity, and this trend is expected to continue. This deployment strategy is both economical and scalable, giving enterprises of all sizes opportunities and flexibility. Furthermore, it is accessible whenever and wherever consumers have internet connection, which boosts the need for digital and social media recruiting.

  • For instance, AkkenCloud is a cloud-based system that gives enterprises comprehensive access to their information anywhere, at any time. Accessing the same information in real-time from anywhere in the globe increases communication with organizations while giving maximum control and security.

SaaS solutions allow for immediate upgrades, ensuring that all of the staff have access to the most up-to-date technology. This fosters higher levels of performance and production, allowing a company to stay ahead of the competition. In addition, as compared to on-premise systems, SaaS solutions give a greater level of security.

  • For instance, AkkenCloud unifies applicant tracking, customer relationship management, human resource management, reporting, email, and more, removing the need for a substantial upfront investment in several software packages as well as months of installation time.

Hence, cloud-based solutions are likely to propel the market growth during the forecast period.


Augmentation of Existing Products by Unified Technologies to Boost the Market Growth

Organizations are primarily concerned with providing creative, efficient, and cost-effective work and project-based solutions. Oracle Fusion Cloud Human Capital Management and Oracle Fusion Cloud ERP, for example, were installed recently. Oracle Fusion Cloud Human Capital Management is an excellent tool for managing activities such as talent management, workforce management, and payroll. Also, Oracle Cloud ERP is aiding the finance and procurement teams in identifying underlying profitability drivers, improving working capital utilization, and controlling company costs.

  • September 2021: Oorwin, an AI-powered platform announced its integration with widely known job board, Naukri.com. The integration with Oorwin's ATS permits recruiters to post positions on Naukri directly from the Oorwin's website. It makes the process easier for recruiters to hire people quickly and simply. Additionally, this integration also provides the recruiters with the specifics of the positions that are advertised from the dashboard itself. The recruiters can automatically extract resumes from applicants that are applied on Naukri into Oorwin for particular jobs that are advertised on Oorwin, owing to this update.

Therefore, enhancements in the existing products by integrating technologies, such as AI, are likely to propel the market growth.


Technical Limitations to Impede the Market Growth

Some organizations, such as Amazon, have demonstrated preconceptions that are reinforced through hiring tools. The screening engine was shown to favor phrases commonly used by male candidates, resulting in unintended inequity that made it more difficult for female applicants to qualify. Biases may be increased by technology since recruitment software programs must be customized by a person.

Since staffing agency software adheres to predetermined criteria, individuals who think outside the box may be excluded from consideration for reasons unrelated to their abilities or fit. For example, a candidate who would have been great for the organization based on "soft" talents such as communication and creativity might get neglected as they might lack certain qualifications or sufficient experience to compete with other applicants.

Due to formatting difficulties, certain resumes may be overlooked by recruitment software. While recruiters are unaware of the problem, this might disqualify highly competent candidates from consideration or change the way their CV is seen. It's critical to ensure that a system exists to double-check the software on a frequent basis to ensure that technical challenges do not hinder recruiting.

Although the software can help to speed up and simplify many aspects of the hiring process, it should not be used to make final decisions or take complete control of the process.

Hence, the aforementioned factors may hinder the market growth.
