1.) “Appification” Has Arrived
HR technology expert Josh Bersin recently published a blog post, “HR Technology For 2016: Ten Disruptions On The Horizon,” in which he emphasized mobile apps as the future centerpiece of HR technology. He says “appification has arrived” because mobile apps are some of the most easy to use, mass sharing tools that an HR professional could dream of. Both organized and time-saving, mobile apps are fast becoming HR's not-so-secret weapon of choice.

Crossroads has grown into a national recruitment agency because of apps like this increasing our reach. Mobile apps make our processes expansive and efficient - making it that much easier to find top candidates.

2.) Shareability
Staffing companies have always been keen on sharing their opportunities and talent through their large networks. With the age of social media, HR and staffing companies can optimize their ability to share their resources to the masses fast. They provide immediate access to job leads and a huge talent pool. This helps them appeal to the newest members of the workforce – Millennials and Generation Z.
