JSG Happenings: Bullhorn Engage Conference

This past month, a few of our wonderful employees attended the Bullhorn Engage conference in Boston. This was the first Bullhorn in-person conference since 2019— Nicole, Juan, and Uma were glad to be back and networking with other great people in staffing!

Addressing Business in a Post-pandemic World

Business is changing faster than ever, and JSG wants to keep up with the latest business practices and hiring trends. This conference discussed what has been happening and what we should expect in the near future when it comes to hiring. Bullhorn scheduled space for attendees to speak about their hiring experience and how they have learned from it. This allowed different companies to work together to give and receive advice from each other.

Using and Improving Technology

Speakers spent a large part of the conference discussing how we can use technology to amplify our hiring processes. They stressed the benefits of automated systems and combining this tech with very intentional personal contact. JSG sees GREAT importance in having good relationships with our candidates. We genuinely care for those we are walking alongside through the hiring process. We are rooting for their success—it is key that we communicate our willingness to invest to all of those we work with.

“Meet[ing] the Moment”

Our representatives joined over a thousand attendees in listening to 44 different speakers brought in by Bullhorn. All of these staffing attendees came together to act on the conference’s theme, “Meet the Moment,” and learn the best ways to reach candidates while keeping up with the latest in hiring. JSG is committed to providing the best experience for both candidates and clients throughout the hiring process!

JSG Happenings: Midwest Staffing Conference

Here at JSG, we like to keep everyone updated on what our employees are up to in our different offices across North America. This week, we had a couple of recruiters from our Westmont, IL location attend the Midwest Staffing Conference, hosted by ASA (American Staffing Association) and ISSA (Illinois Search & Staffing Association) in Rosemont, Illinois.

Client Interactions

Our recruiters went through an exercise highlighting the five phases of relationship and how those relate to our clients. This allowed our recruiters to analyze our client relationships and look for ways to improve communication and connection. We want our relationships with our clients to be mutually beneficial. Each party should feel like they have something to gain from the other. We want to ensure that our client companies see us as a positive help and relief, not just a necessary step in hiring.

Candidate Interactions

Our recruiters were reminded that talking to candidates is all about building trust in their partnership. Candidates are looking first to trust their recruiter. We want to build credibility with them, so they trust that we submit them to solid jobs. Creating a positive relationship with our candidates (turned employees) makes for a supportive partnership between contractor and recruiter. We want to find out what our candidates need and be able to provide and support them through it.

Key Takeaway: Partnership

Staffing and Recruiting should be a PARTNERSHIP between the Salesperson and Clients, as well as the Recruiter and the Candidate. These relationships are mutually beneficial. Everyone must work together to see success. JSG wants to ensure that both clients and candidates are happy. We recognize that most candidates and clients are looking to grow, and we want to be a great support throughout the growth process.

JSG is always looking to grow and improve. This is why we put effort into learning and shifting with hiring trends. JSG cares about you and your success!
