Best Staffing Software

Staffing software is used by recruiting and staffing firms to source, manage, and track candidates throughout the hiring process on behalf of corporate customers. This type of software facilitates interactions with both candidates and corporate clients throughout the recruitment lifecycle, from job listing to onboarding. Staffing solutions provide many features that can be found in sales-related applications, including pipeline management capabilities and candidate relationship management (CRM) tools. AI-based features such as applicant tracking systems (ATS) and recruiting automation solutions can also be found in staffing products. Furthermore, staffing software typically includes self-service portals, which enable candidates and corporate customers to access and share information such as new job opportunities, resumes, cover letters, and so on. Recruiters employed by staffing agencies utilize such applications to find, interact with, and evaluate candidates while managers that supervise recruiters can track and monitor the performance of their teams. Software for staffing should not be confused with recruitment marketing platforms which are primarily used by internal recruiting teams. Staffing software may be used in conjunction with other HR-related solutions to interview candidates, conduct pre-employment screenings, and manage employee onboarding.

To qualify for inclusion in the Staffing software category, a product must:

  • Provide job listing features to post and manage client job openings
  • Allow candidates to create online profiles and submit resumes, cover letters and other documents
  • Enable recruiters to match candidates’ profiles with job opportunities
  • Manage various types of work contracts (e.g., part time, limited time agreements, internships, temporary staffing)
  • Allow the import and export of data to facilitate HR processes
  • Deliver reports and analytics on the efficiency or the recruiting process, employee productivity, or candidate performance
