In the not so distant past, booking staff at a temporary staffing agency meant a lot of manual tasks: searching for the qualified ones, making contact via phone, email or SMS, checking their availability and interest, and then booking. A manual process. This is not the only way to do it anymore.
Today, the job can be published into an online job board with automatic notifications and the staffers can apply directly. They know when they are available and their application is the answer to whether they can or can’t do the job. The question arises: Is one way or the other better at providing good staffers for a job?
