Back to Customer Blog How to Grow Your Business (and Thrive) with One Platform by Bob McHugh on August 28th, 2019 We’ve surveyed hundreds of recruitment professionals from companies of all sizes and all industries, and one constant remains true for every business: things change fast. For example, a startup might grow 400 percent in its first six months, a large agency could expand into new territory, or a firm specializing in one vertical may branch out into a new specialty. Even if you have an immaculate business plan, your agency will probably evolve in ways you can’t and won’t anticipate—and that’s a good thing. Fortunately for you, our customers, Bullhorn is built with this in mind. And with Bullhorn One, it’s never been easier to run your business through one platform. Here’s how you can use the Bullhorn platform to effectively run and grow your firm. Run your business with one platform A lot of activity goes into every placement—starting with winning a client and job order and ending long after the placement is made—so it helps to have everything in one place. With Bullhorn and Bullhorn One, you can manage the entire recruitment and applicant management process from a single, easy-to-use interface. Through Bullhorn One you can: Win Clients & Recruit: Make better decisions, improve sales and recruiter productivity, and manage the entire recruitment and applicant management process from a single, easy-to-use interface.

Report and measure your business performance—all of it Do you have all the data you need to understand your business? Does your team? A survey of 1,200+ staffing professionals found that the majority of respondents didn’t know the answers to significant questions about the health of their business. Half of recruitment pros don’t know which of their clients are most profitable and 60 percent don’t have any visibility into their gross margins. With Bullhorn One, you can create ad hoc reports to understand critical performance information about your team, your clients, and your candidates, and you can share them with your team. Want some inspiration? Here are three reports you can run with Bullhorn Canvas and Bullhorn One that will help you better understand your business. Remember: your business’ performance expands beyond front-office data. Measure and report on your back-office data too in order to truly understand your business.
