SACRAMENTO, Calif., Apr 03, 2012 (BUSINESS WIRE) — Staffingbook, a web-based offering for connecting employers with staffing firms announces that employers may sign up now and post jobs at no cost. In addition, agency recruiters from different firms may work together and split fees when one recruiter refers the candidate and the other works with the employer. Employers with hard-to-fill requirements have an efficient means to quickly find qualified recruiters who submit their best candidate for the position. Employers control how broadly they disseminate their requirements; in addition, recruiters may submit only one candidate per broadcast thus freeing employers from the task of sifting through hundreds of submittals.
Steve Harari, CEO of Staffingbook, comments that employers often prefer not to use an agency recruiter to fill positions and says, “Every employer wants to avoid paying placement fees and yet frequently it makes good business sense to work with an agency recruiter who can save you money by sourcing and screening candidates and getting you the best hire quickly.”
Jan Conti, a contract technical recruiter who has worked for Microsoft, Ernst & Young, SAP, Oracle, and Siemens comments that “With Staffingbook, you control the process and you decide who to work with based upon the quality of the candidates they submit. Unlike other offerings, the best staffing firm recruiters will work with you because Staffingbook isn’t taking a percentage of the placement fee.”
Staffingbook has applied to the Recruiting Innovation Summit Startup Competition which will announce on May 17 their selection for the most innovative new recruiting technology. The company also participated in TECH Day at the Staffing Industry Analysts Executive Forum (EF) on March 16 with favorable feedback from Andrew Karpie, SIA Research Analyst, who writes about new innovation in talent acquisition in a March 27 blog post.
Staffingbook is currently offering FREE user accounts to Employers, Candidates, and Agency Recruiters at www.staffingbook.com .
