We have an opportunity and a platform. We have conversations with employers and talent. This is our opportunity to shape the future so it's different from the past." (Art Papas, CEO and Co-Founder, Bullhorn)

Bullhorn EngageX 2020 recap

June 29, 2020
Kyloe highlights from Bullhorn EngageX 2020
Reading time: 1 minute

During EngageX 2020, the online experience, thousands of staffing and recruiting professionals came together in one (virtual) space to network, learn, and discuss challenges, opportunities, and everything in between.

Much of the content covered how we can build a better future for ourselves – something that has become even more crucial in the wake of COVID-19. Bullhorn CEO and Co-Founder Art Papas and former NASA Deputy Administrator Dr. Dava Newman each tackled the theme of looking forward and creating a better tomorrow through two very different yet inspiring keynotes.
Art Papas keynote

Art Papas kicked off his keynote with a look at the current state of the industry. Key indicators like job orders fell to 50 percent of normal activity during the pandemic, but all signs point towards recovery now. Most sectors are still down 30 percent from pre-pandemic activity, but the trajectory is upward heading into the future.

There are various opportunities which he highlighted are available to staffing firms right now, including:

1. The emergence of new roles that didn’t exist before and the transformation of existing roles to the world of remote work. Art shared the story of one customer who placed 4,000 temperature-takers in the U.S., a job that had no demand three months ago.

2. The second kind of opportunity is the opportunity to eliminate manual work through automation. By automating time-consuming tasks, staffing and recruiting companies can spend more time on relationship-building and innovating.

Dr. Dava Newman keynote

In her keynote, Dr. Dava Newman, MIT Apollo Professor of Astronautics & Former NASA Deputy Administrator, spoke about the power of innovation to transform the future of work. The three key takeaways were:

  1. Good leadership has the power to transform and bring in new ideas
  2. We have to adapt quickly to make the most out of the current landscape
  3. The pandemic has exposed our weaknesses: we need to learn from our mistakes

Investing in automation: Why you need to know about 'documation'

We were delighted to hold our first Engage roundtable this year. Kyloe Partners Director Raymond Pennie was joined by Ali Donnel (Vaco), Raj Surve (Cross Country Healthcare), and Russ Wallis (North Highland Consulting) as they discussed how they're using documation as part of their strategies.

All have successfully implemented 'documation' and in turn transformed the client and candidate experience by using our Kyloe AwesomeDocs product.

From risk mitigation to efficiency there are many benefits that could mean that ‘documation’ is the next big thing for the staffing sector. As the industry landscape becomes even more competitive due to impacts of COVID-19 this could be what you need to give your company the edge. See here for the full roundtable recap.
