Still Running Your Labour Hire Business on Spreadsheets?

Recruitment is a long conversation between existing teams and potential new hires in its most basic form. Historically, the email inbox has been the go-to tool for online discussions, and it is where most interactions with candidates begin. So it’s simple to see why many businesses rely on email to distribute information and contact applicants. Likewise, spreadsheets have become the default mechanism for logging candidate data for similar reasons. It’s recognisable, gives shape and structure, and is installed by default on most corporate computers.

Both email and spreadsheets address important parts of hiring, such as communication and candidate information. However, neither was created with recruitment in mind. They may eventually lead to a string of successful hiring — more by chance than purpose. However, utilising them out of habit has a cost.

Don’t get us wrong… Spreadsheets are great for a lot of things.  Unfortunately, running an efficient and scalable labour-hire business isn’t one of them.  If you’re an engineer or a financial analyst keep doing what you’re doing.  But if you’re trying to find, hire and track candidates, process payroll, assign jobs, track timesheets, create rosters and so on, then you should consider switching from cumbersome and unreliable spreadsheets to cloud-based and comprehensive labour-hire software.  There are fewer manual errors, more security, easier accessibility and increased efficiency.

Entire OnHire is a labour-hire software powered by the latest and greatest cloud-based technology that streamlines the process of hiring labour, assigning them shifts, tracking timesheets, calculating payrolls, and so much more!
