There is a growing need to providing and further developing functional and effective online recruitment software across the globe that includes professional recruitment firms, government departments and private enterprises.

There are more companies realising that people are their greatest resource. Finding the right people and placing them in roles that match the culture of the organisation is an increasing priority for business leaders, recruiters and HR professionals. However the process of determining who is the ‘best fit’ for a vacancy is time consuming, costly and can be a significant drain on valuable resources with many HR departments and managers relying on antiquated email systems to manage the recruitment effort.

Recruiting the wrong candidate has dire consequences for any company. Lost productivity, damaged internal relationships and disruptions affect the team as a business unit. Low moral is a significant and real cost to a company. What’s more, several studies have estimated the total cost of hire to be as much as 150% of the candidates’ first year annual salary. Add to this the costs of training and on-boarding or revisiting the process of a bad hire, recruiter or agency fees and there is a significant cost that is applied to recruitment for any business.

On the bright side, hiring the ‘perfect fit’ reaps rewards in reduced recruitment costs. By increasing harmony within the team, there are higher levels of engagement and inspired employees are driven consistently. Combine this with resources, knowledge and development will lead to increased productivity and benefits to the bottom line.

SmartLife Expo brings together the companies and people that facilitate the tracking and management of the recruitment process.

Job Networking

Networking is a strategy to discover more opportunities and greater possibilities. It’s a way of connecting with others: people you know, but don’t really know, and new people you’ve never met before. Networking starts with a mindset and an intention to master, explore, and be open to who you may encounter. It’s about helping others and helping yourself.  We are wired both to connect with and help others. Without these connections most people can be isolated and experience loneliness and even depression. So, real networking is about re-invigorating your relationships and engaging new connections and new networks.
