Advances in technology, such as social media and sophisticated data-mining software, have taken a lot of the guesswork out of HR and are increasing the speed of finding the right talent. Talent acquisition is rapidly becoming more ‘science’ than ‘art,’ and HR is responding to these changes.
Nearly three-quarters of survey respondents in this report’s study believe that there will be a need for greater technical acumen within just two years, and about 82 percent indicated that integrating automation into the talent acquisition function is very important. Talent acquisition professionals who resist embracing new technology are already becoming obsolete.
Results also show that candidate experience is paramount when integrating technology. Which other factors and specific technologies do HR professionals say are trending to be the most important for the future? Find out in this report.
