Does my Agency Need an App for Workers?

Who isn’t glued to their mobile phone all the time? We are attached to our smartphones and they have become the primary tool we use to entertain ourselves, to book appointments, meet friends and more and more, to organise our work. Recent studies show that the Britons spends almost 2.5 hours a day on their smartphones. And the proliferation of productivity apps is transforming the way the white collar workforce gets things done. So it makes sense that your dynamic workers can also benefit from their smartphone to significantly improve productivity and engagement with your company. Do you know how an app for your dynamic workers can actually make your business more profitable?

Managing availability

It’s time you offer your temp workers some quality of life. Managing their availability within a mobile app offers your dynamic workers the ability to better organise their own lives. This way, they can let you know when they want to work, or whether they need to take days off. What’s in for you? This valuable information will save you from reaching out to candidates that are not ready, willing, or able to work, and will clue you in on eager workers.

Seeing upcoming shifts

“What’s my schedule look like?” It’s a typical question among dynamic workers. No wonder why, working at different times or locations every week or even every day can be confusing, and no one should have to remember that information by heart. Having such information at their fingertips and using handy push up notifications or reminders–just like we all do with our personal day-to-day schedule!–can help your dynamic workers put their minds to better use, like excelling at their jobs. This will also significantly reduce the number of calls and texts your teams will have to field, so that your consultants can focus on operations.

Reducing time to fill

Time to fill is the amount of time spent by an agency from the moment they receive a staffing request from a client until they allocate those positions to candidates in their pool. Obviously, the shorter this time the better, as time spent on the phone by consultants could be put to better use. The latest generation of mobile apps for dynamic workers can help you fulfil your requirements in as little as eight (8!) seconds, with no phone calls involved. Only suitable candidates receive a notification about a shift opening, and the fastest ones can accept the shift with just one tap.

Enabling mobile time and attendance

Time and attendance can be easy with dynamic worker apps. Enabled with GPS technology, these apps allow the worker to clock in and out of their work location, instantly and with just a simple tap. A perfect alternative to the expensive time and attendance devices that require upkeep and cooperation among venues, agencies, and end client employers.

Engaging your workers with your business

As the brilliant communication tools they are, dynamic worker apps also provide useful information to your workers like their timesheet data and their previous shifts. All in all, these tools allow your dynamic workers to gain control over their work life, making them feel more engaged with your agency. And of course, a happy employee is a more profitable and efficient employee.

But wait… Do I need to develop my own app?

Why would you do that? Some of the biggest staffing agencies in the world trust the experts to do this. No need to reinvent the wheel! Leveraging tools like MySirenum offers your company the advantages of years of experience and support, plus a broad understanding of the entire employment market, which has allowed us to build an app that can handle just about every employment scenario.

Using Philosophy to Resolve the Lack of Candidates

King Cheung

King Cheung, Director of Sales

In my role here at Sirenum, I speak to temporary staffing agencies across the UK and Continental Europe every day. I ask them about their operational issues, and almost without exception, they trot out the issue of it being a candidate’s market. They say that particularly in the hourly temping market, there is a real dearth of candidates willing to sign up, turn up, and put in a shift. This lack, they say, is reflected in their declining order fulfilment rates. And, of course, the biggest shame is agencies being offered business and being unable to engage candidates in order to fulfil it. Money left on the (empty) table.

no workers

And the more people say it, the truer it becomes.

But it’s a strange thing. Because I also regularly talk to the people who are candidates–who sign up, show up, and put in shifts for agencies. And although for some, it is indeed a lifestyle choice, and they are happy to get work here and there, the vast majority say they would like more work than they get from the agency.  Many of them even sign up to multiple agencies in order to get more work. Even many people who work full-time want extra hours from agencies. There is evidently no lack of purpose or drive in the temping population to get out there and put the hours in, wherever they can.

The real truth is that for agencies, it is almost impossible to identify availability and then provide enough work for everyone in their worker pool, in a timely manner, with the tools available to them (telephone, rolodex, e-mail, text message, etc.). And for workers, they are just not visible enough to the agencies to get shifts quickly without tools that offer direct engagement and a window into their own availability.

So clearly, we are talking about two opposing truths–or perceptions–here, and each one is equally valid. So, using the Hegelian principle of dialectical synthesis, the philosophical acceptance of these two opposing truths enables us to bring them together, to reach a greater truth. Which is that if both agencies and workers had better tools to interact and communicate more effectively, there would be a higher fulfilment rate of jobs to workers. This would deliver a wide variety of benefits to all parties: more hours a week for the worker by being more visible; a higher fulfilment rate for agencies through better mining of their existing resources better; and better delivery of service for clients, by increasing coverage rates.

Agencies have an active pool of workers, but they also have a passive pool of people whom they may not have used recently or who, for some reason, have fallen out of favour. But, the passive pool notwithstanding, even the active pool is underutilised – the average worker does only 18-22 hours a week for many agencies. And if you believe when they say they would love more hours, that leaves a vast amount of capacity sitting in the agency’s active pool of workers.  If an agency could somehow unlock the capacity just of their active pool, the whole problem of the lack of candidates goes away.

This is where a dynamic workforce management platform like Sirenum comes in. Sirenum offers a number of powerful features that unlock the latent capacity of a pool of workers in a rapid and easy-to-use way. Let me offer you a case study in how this works in a real-life scenario. One of our customers is a staffing agency, providing ancillary staff to the rail industry. A few weeks ago, one of their customers, a Train Operating Company, announced that there would be strike action from their drivers, and that they needed the agency to provide 58 (!) support staff for the following morning (!!).

Staffing trainThe agency used a feature in Sirenum called Open Shift, to broadcast this shift offer to a mass of workers simultaneously – over a hundred, in fact – and, within 10 minutes, the agency had fulfilled 29 of the 58 shifts. Ten. Whole. Minutes. To fill 29 shifts. And, before long, all the shifts were filled. This operation has moved on from believing–like everyone else–that there is a dearth of candidates, to instead optimising the capacity of its pool of workers – and it’s a situation where everyone wins.

I didn’t think learning Hegel at University was going to help me much in my career–unless I was intending to enter left-wing politics, which I had no intention of doing–but how wrong I was. The answer to the issue of a lack of workers is dialectical synthesis.

2018: What a (Half-Year) It’s Been

Usually, first half reviews are published in the first week of July so forgive us for getting this post up a bit later than originally hoped, but frankly, we’ve been swamped!

Many software entrepreneurs are into mountaineering and it’s no wonder, building a software business is a lot like climbing a mountain: it’s difficult, requires teamwork, the summit is not always where it appears to be, and you’re always looking for the next summit.

We started the year here at Sirenum with some big mountains in mind, and looking back to our annual kickoff in January, we can already say: What a year 2018 is!

In only six months, we have added six new Sirenumites to the team, expanding the services, development and commercial teams, in a continued commitment to improving the services and products that we offer to our clients. As we had hoped and planned, Sirenum is quickly becoming the workforce management solution of choice for the largest agencies in the world, chosen by the biggest and most complex employers for our product’s flexibility and industrial strength.

Sirenum halfway 2018

Our product market leadership continues as we released a major product update with a new user interface and we have also delivered numerous new versions in the past six months. Sirenum also launched Sirenum Clock, driving innovation in the world of BYOD time and attendance capture. Also on the product front, even we have been surprised by the astonishing success of tools like F3 by Sirenum, driving down the time-to-fill to an almost unimaginable eight seconds.

In the spring, Sirenum stepped up to the big leagues by joining Staffing Industry Analysts (SIA) as a corporate member. That was followed by our sponsorship of their “Collaboration in the Gig Economy” event, where we proudly earned the audience and dragons’ vote to win the Dragons’ Den competition.

Onto the corporate development front, in May we completed our first year as a member of the Mayor’s International Business Programme, alongside dozens of other leading London-based scale ups. We’ve also established and deepened partnerships with key players like Twilio, TextLocal, and 1218.

Finally, Sirenum just recently gained G-Cloud 10 certification, further demonstrating our commitment to the public sector and those business that service it.

All in all, we want to thank our team, clients, and partners for our continued growth and the amazing progress towards the next summit. We look forward to an even more exciting second half of the year! Keep climbing!

Four Crucial Ways to Manage Complex Workforces in Hospitality Staffing

There was a time when managing a dynamic workforce in the hospitality staffing industry was done with rudimentary tools like spreadsheets, whiteboards or even pen and paper. Staffing agencies focused on that industry have since realised that in order to grow their businesses they needed to invest in real technology to streamline the management of their workforce. As Yuval Noah Harari argues in the bestseller Homo Sapiens, “Most people can neither intimately know, nor gossip effectively about, more than 150 human beings.” So once an agency (or a department within an agency) crosses that threshold, especially in a complex environment like hospitality, effective technology is a must.

At the end of the day, for an agency to grow, their processes need to become more efficient, and consultants need to manage a larger number of dynamic workers without working 15 hours a day. And while some agencies think that an out-of-the-box scheduling tool can do a good enough job, their usefulness is limited to simpler work environments. Yes, with these tools you can manage more than the magical 150 figure, but you won’t be able to tackle the environment typical in the hospitality industry–a wide variety of workers, with complicated payment terms, variable shift patterns, and multiple skills, all across multiple sites.

Because when your agency is growing, you want to manage that growth, aligning business expansion with worker engagement and client satisfaction.

If you can relate to what we’re saying, these are some tools and technology that your hospitality agency will need to use to manage these complex workforces. While some can seem too futuristic or even impossible, these methods are all already operating and deploying tens of thousands of dynamic workers in the world as we speak.

Automatically Find the Best Candidates

When you receive a requirement from a client, it can be overwhelming to select suitable workers from your pool of 10,000 or even 100,000. But today’s modern dynamic workforce management platforms automate the process of finding the best candidates, so consultants don’t need to rely on memory or spend hours looking through realms of data.

How is this accomplished? By automating the fetching of workers data such as qualifications, proximity, preferences, payment terms and custom requirements, connected to the back-end of the scheduling tool. With just a click, you can view the most relevant candidates, sorted by percentage of match, and when you’ve decided on the right worker, send an invite to the shift with a single click.

Hospitality Staffing HR records into scheduling

Broadcast Shifts

But what if I told you that it could also be easy for even bigger sets of requirements? Leading staffing agencies are already using shift broadcasting tools that allow sharing openings will all relevant workers matching the job criteria. Your best suited dynamic workers get a notification on their mobile app with the details of the gig and they can accept the shift in seconds, wherever they are, while you see how client requirements get fulfilled automatically.

Track Worker Time and Attendance Digitally

One of the things that can really make your hospitality staffing business hum is the expediency with which you process payroll. Site managers that control time and attendance are no longer needed with modern mobile apps. These apps expedite the process of checking in/out and even confirming attendance in advance for better peace of mind, while providing accuracy and transparency to the invoicing and payroll processes.

Alternatively, modern technology can manage access control for work sites, where the time and attendance of all workers can be tracked without impacting regular processes. All of these translate into fewer human errors by eliminating double data entry, thus driving substantial savings. Tools like these offer greater accuracy to clients and workers while easing invoicing and payroll processes.

Leverage Mobile Communications

With mobile phones an essential part of everyone’s life, it’s obviously the right idea to leverage them as the great communication tools they are. Modern workforce management mobile apps simplify communications between consultants and candidates. They provide information to the dynamic workers about their upcoming shifts and offers payslip views at their fingertips. The workers can communicate their availability and request time off with just one click.

This technology integrates with the agency’s systems, enabling easy time and attendance inputs and simplifying HR compliance and payroll accuracy. On the worker’s side, having a greater understanding of their work schedule allows them to better plan their personal schedules. Plus, with reminders, maps and contact tools built in, it’s practically impossible to miss a shift. Leading hospitality staffing agencies manage their dynamic workers with mobile tools that also work without internet connections, using SMS communications if needed, all on a single platform.

The Four Biggest Impacts of Training Your Dynamic Workers

While Generation X and Baby Boomer workers have generally preferred the stability that long-term positions offered, newer generations strive for variety and opportunities to learn at work. The reasons why staffing agencies are chosen as main employers by ever more workers are diverse, but we can point out a few that we hear regularly from our clients and prospects: the flexibility to work on your preferred schedule or even on demand, the longer-term opportunities arising from temporary jobs, the ability to work with different teams throughout the year, or the chance to learn new skills that allow developing one’s career path.

According to the American Staffing Association, 60% of US workers think they could be more effective in their job if their employer offered more training, and state that many mistakes at work are due to a lack of training.

It is clear that workers appreciate being trained by their employers, both for self-development and to better perform their jobs within the company. But do you know what is the bottom line for these employers?

Increased Employee Engagement

In a highly fragmented market like temporary staffing, competition is tough among agencies to find both clients and candidates. Offering valuable training programs to workers should be part of every staffing agency’s talent acquisition strategy. Structuring these programs and advertising them as part of your communication plan will eventually pay off in better applicants and also an improved brand image (more about that below). Investing in training will provide your agency with loyalty and staff retention, saving you significantly on onboarding and training down the road. Your current staff will appreciate this initiative that will help build their self-esteem and will be more likely to opt for new positions within the company.

dynamic workers

Upskilling = Upselling

Training temps should be a priority for all staffing agencies willing to provide the best quality service to their clients. We’ve written regularly on our blog about the benefits of a good workforce management solution. But even with a dynamic workforce management solution like Sirenum to manage your dynamic workers, you can still improve the quality of work that they perform at client sites. Upskilling your workers–and properly updating their employee records to reflect new achievements and certificates–will make a difference to the quality you deliver to your clients. Outperforming your competition with upskilled staff will then facilitate the upsell process.

Staffing agency closing a deal

Diversification Across Industries

Training your staff to perform a different role increases their engagement and improves their future prospects both within your business and outside, but it doesn’t end there. Enabling your workers to gain new skills will make your company grow and expand while help you better address present demand. Building new skills across your team will allow your agency to sell to new clients that perhaps you hadn’t even considered before. For instance, if your staffing agency is focused on events, you could start training motivated workers in other fields that require similar characteristics and personality traits, like retail or hospitality.

Woman thinking about her future

Brand Building

Caring for your staff is always good business–it facilitates a comfortable atmosphere, warm and friendly communication within your team, and more effective operations. But it can also be a good opportunity to build your brand around this initiative. Investing in training will reflect well on your business and its employees, and your brand will be better recognised by both candidates and prospects.

Six Reasons Why Temps Prefer Agencies with Great Workforce Management Software

Temp turnover can be brutal on an agency’s business–our analysis shows that roughly half the temps in a traditionally run staffing agency work fewer than 80 hours before departing. The best way to decrease turnover, and to increase those hours, is to manage temps how they want to be managed–allowing them to work when and where they want and paying them on time, for example. Temp agencies are looking to new technology for this not just to manage costs, but to grow. Rosters are a big part of the challenge, and while there are vendors out there that promise to manage your worker rosters, leading agencies know off-the-shelf or standalone tools don’t cut it for complex workforces. Let’s see some of the reasons why temps choose to work with their agencies and how workforce management software can help.

1) Knowing what they need to know about their workers

When workers join a temporary staffing agency, they are required to bring loads of documentation. Passport, Social Security or National Insurance numbers, addresses, bank accounts, certificates and permits, the list goes on. This data capture needs to be straightforward and the maintenance of the information should be seamless and transparent. The best workforce management solutions allow agencies to manage this information in a single database, with availability across multiple processes: scheduling, compliance, payroll, human resources, and more.

Agencies and their workers need to be able to rely on the accuracy and availability of this information. For example, relevant teams can get automated reminders when a permit is about to expire, simplifying things for everyone involved. This frees in-house staff to focus on higher value tasks, which allow agencies to grow, while increasing trust and transparency with temps.

Temps bring documentation at inteviews

2) Empowering their temps

Temps like to feel that they have a say in their schedule and are more than just a cog in the system. Workforce management solutions like Sirenum allow agencies to empower workers with mobile calendar management. Requesting time off–or communicating availability–can be accomplished in just a few clicks. Empowered workers are happier and more engaged.

Temps want to manage their schedule

3) Working when and where they want

Dynamic workers want to work when and where they prefer–that’s one of the advantages of working in a temporary staffing agency. Some like working at different locations and for different clients throughout the week, some don’t. Regardless, today’s dynamic worker wants their work schedule to be compatible with their life outside of work. By integrating HR records, payment terms, qualifications and event locations, schedules are fulfilled faster than even before, without even having to pick up the phone. This not only saves agency teams time trying to find the best candidates, but it also gives your workers time to plan and be prepared, increasing client and worker satisfaction.

Temps deciding when they work

4) Easily clocking in and out

Regardless of the industry or location, virtually all temp agencies are challenged with how the check in and out process is going to look like for your workers. Too many clients are still reliant (sometimes even insistent!) on paper for capturing time and attendance, with all the inconveniences that entails: lack of accuracy and more time spent on payroll processing.

Clocking in and out with a mobile app drastically increases accuracy without impacting existing workflows. Doing so also opens up the door to new capabilities, such as improved security, GPS verification, or site manager approval. This increases client and worker trust in the process and helps avoid disputes over hours worked.

Temps time and attendance

5) Getting the right amount in their account at the right time

Everybody wants to be paid on time, and getting that right is a big reason why dynamic workers choose to stay with an agency. Faster and more accurate payroll is a reality with systems that integrate scheduling and actual hours worked with payment terms. Getting paid accurately and on time, increases worker satisfaction and engagement with an agency.

6) Feeling valued by their employers

One of the big ideas that has transformed how people work–think of Uber!–is the use of rating systems for both clients and workers. Having a preference for working somewhere is typical, and this can already be properly measured with a workforce management platform like Sirenum. Workers can rate their clients, and vice-versa. This information can enable agencies to increase satisfaction for both workers and clients.

Temps evaluate their clients

Using the right workforce management solution can transform the way an agency operates, incorporating all the relevant information needed to run the business seamlessly–HR, payment terms, contracts, scheduling, monitoring, compliance, payroll, and more–while leveraging mobile and the cloud to keep things in tip-top shape. In short, the business runs smoothly, and temps are more likely to stick with an agency running smoothly.
