Shift Planner: Your hidden weapon in temporary recruitment

In the recruiting world, particularly for temporary placements, timing is of the essence. Making sure the appropriate candidate is available at the appropriate time for a job can be described as a complex balancing act. This is the place where Voyager Infinity‘s Shift Planner comes into play as a secret weapon, facilitating shift planning and providing a competitive advantage in the temp recruitment process.

Temporary recruitment challenges

Temporary staffing has a unique set of issues for recruiters. You’re not simply matching candidates with job specifications; you also have to deal with specific time frames, shifts, and client requirements. The traditional method of handling temporary bookings is slow, inaccurate, and lacking in efficiency.

Availability management

Having control over the availability of candidates can be a nightmare logistically. You must understand who is available during what times and for how long.

Shift patterns

Many temporary positions have specific shift patterns, which can differ greatly. Managing these patterns and associating them with candidates can be difficult.

Client expectations

Clients often want to know the status of their temporary reservations in real time. Providing this information by hand is difficult.

Live candidate accessibility

With the Shift Planner, you can immediately notice which candidates are available. This data regarding live availability is of great importance in quickly filling temporary positions.

Shift pattern data
