3 Things We Can Help You With At The Mya Booth

It is no question conversational AI and chatbots will be at the forefront of discussion this year. Our team will be available to you as a resource to answer any questions you have about the use cases, benefits, and challenges associated with deploying recruiting automation, chatbots, or conversational AI. 

1. Build An Artificial Intelligence Strategy 

If you have any questions on these subjects, be sure to stop by our booth.  Our team has years of experience in helping the world’s largest staffing companies acquire, deploy, and strategically scale recruiting AI to create business impact. They’re happy to help guide you and answer any questions or concerns you have around industry trends and leveraging cutting edge AI recruiting technology.

2. Behind The Scenes: How The World’s Largest Agencies Use AI 

Recruitment automation will continue to be impactful for staffing agencies as competition for talent and candidate expectations continue to be more and more demanding.

Recruiters today are most effective when supported by an AI recruiting assistant that takes on pre-screening, scheduling, and other repetitive time-intensive tasks for them. 

Agency recruiters that are supported by conversational AI find they have the time to connect personally with candidates, build important relationships with hiring managers. 

At this event, our goal will be to help you to understand exactly how an AI recruiting assistant can integrate directly into your existing workflows. Most industries are hesitant when it comes to change, and while the staffing industry may be as well, six of the top eight firms are currently using Mya. We have more than enough experience to quell any fears. 

3. Understand The Business Case For AI

Mya is highly configured so we can set up the perfect system depending on the specific needs of your staffing company. Whether your agency deals with general staffing, retail, healthcare, or any other type of hire, our solution can be customized to make the biggest impact on any of your target candidates.

AI is also very effective when used to recruit deskless workers

Metrics like increased time efficiency, time to fill, fill rate, and dollars saved are sure to be top of mind for staffing agencies on the show floor, and Mya team members will be standing by with tips on how to place better candidates faster.

A truly robust AI hiring assistant enables connections along the entire hiring journey, from job search to hire, and from onboarding to career advancement supporting your end to end life cycle.
