Microsoft is leading the way in revolutionizing recruitment with their involvement in SThree’s Technology Improvement Programme.

SThree, the leading STEM-specialist staffing group, has announced a collaboration with Microsoft that will power its industry-leading Technology Improvement Programme. This strategic initiative, set to launch on Tuesday, 26th March 2024, will reshape the role of recruiters and foster a new standard of client collaboration while enhancing the candidate experience.

Through the deployment of a robust suite of advanced, seamlessly integrated technologies, which includes AI capabilities, the initiative marks not just an evolution but a reinvention of recruitment dynamics at SThree. This move propels the Group and its stakeholders into a new era defined by efficiency and excellence.

The program, in partnership with Microsoft, goes beyond the notion of a mere system upgrade; it represents a strategic reimagining of SThree’s operations. Leveraging end-to-end integration with Microsoft’s cutting-edge platforms and technologies, including Dynamics 365, Azure AI, Azure Analytics, Azure SQL, Azure Compute, Azure Containers, Azure Security, Microsoft 365, and the Microsoft Power Platform, this collaboration will empower SThree’s people and redefine the recruitment landscape.

Timo Lehne, CEO of SThree, explains the transformative impact of the collaboration:

“Working with Microsoft is about more than simply improving our data and integrating AI; it involves embedding a robust spectrum of advanced technologies deep within SThree’s framework. By working closely with Microsoft in this Technology Improvement Programme, we aim to empower our recruiters to work in a more informed and efficient way, offering unmatched service to our clients and candidates.”

The integration of Microsoft’s solutions is designed to make SThree’s operations smarter. This technological upgrade simplifies many behind-the-scenes tasks, such as finding and training consultants, making deals with clients, and handling billing. It represents a step change in how efficiently SThree works, creating a more responsive environment.

The collaboration between SThree and Microsoft focuses on four key areas:

1. Accelerating Digital Integration: This collaboration will incorporate digital tools and automated practices into SThree’s daily operations.

2. Creating Market Solutions: Using data-driven talent algorithms through Azure Analytics, customised career platforms using the Microsoft Power Platform, and flexible workforce tools driven by Dynamics 365, SThree will be able to match individuals with the right opportunities more efficiently.

3. Enhancing Data Analysis and Visualisation: The integration of Azure Analytics and Microsoft 365 software will transform how SThree interprets and utilises data, enabling more informed decision-making. Sophisticated visualisation will also help uncover sector insights and trends, significantly impacting strategic planning.

4. Promoting Responsible and Ethical Technology Use: Ensuring that SThree’s workforce adopts digital technologies, including AI through Azure AI, in a manner that is both ethical and responsible.

Chris Perkins, General Manager, Enterprise Commercial, Microsoft UK, added: “We are excited to collaborate with SThree. Together, we are enabling SThree to leverage the power of AI to create a future where technology seamlessly integrates with human expertise to transform the way recruiters, clients, and candidates experience the world of STEM staffing.”

This initiative marks a pivotal evolution for SThree, fusing Microsoft’s technological innovation with the Group’s extensive recruitment acumen and STEM sector expertise. In this pursuit, SThree clients are poised to experience a staffing journey that is not only enhanced and precise but also deeply customised, driven by the forefront of technology and enriched by human insight.

This advancement solidifies SThree’s commitment to shaping a future where every staffing solution is as unique and dynamic as the clients it serves.
