How can you get your temporary recruitment agency off to the best start this new year?  After another rollercoaster year in 2022, January is a great time to reassess and take time to plan, for the forthcoming months ahead.
By ensuring you have the best tools and tactics in place, you’re in the best position to take your business to the next level and ensure the most successful 2023.
Streamline and save time
Discovering new ways to automate your internal processes will allow you to reduce your admin tasks and give you time back to effectively place good candidates and concentrate on clients. Building your agency, winning new business while preserving existing relationships.
Keeping a tidy candidate pipeline can prove much more effective, ensuring you can place the right person quickly with your clients. 
Consider reaching back out to inactive temps on your books, an automated email would be ideal to remind them about you and reignite a past relationship. 

Improve your technology

Over the last few years, technology has been an indispensable tool for recruiters to keep their agencies trading.
Online recruitment agency booking software that's been designed specifically for use by temporary recruitment agencies, makes it easy to book workers onto jobs, automatically establishing that only available workers who meet the necessary skill and compliance requirements are placed.
An end-to-end cloud based platform can create bookings and timesheets, consolidates invoices and tracks compliance information. Using real-time information stored securely, data can be accessed and managed anywhere by agency employees and client users via the client portal.
One of the main selling points of many recruitment software providers is the support they provide, which becomes even more invaluable to you as your business grows.
Outsource your back office functions
Specialist processes like payroll and back office functions can become notably more effective if outsourced to industry experts, with human error reduced at the same time. Allowing for a better and consistent service all round for candidates and clients, and reflecting the professionalism of your agency.
You can remain compliant while your admin levels become far more manageable. The need to invest time and money in recruiting and training staff to fulfil back office tasks can be eliminated.
If you fear losing authority in this area by outsourcing, it can in fact provide you with more control, as the management of your back office functions becomes more stringent. You can also have access to detailed and accurate reporting.
