CEO’s Letter: HR Technology Buying (or Welcome to the Jungle)

HRO Today

By Elliot H. Clark

The song, Welcome to the Jungle by Guns ‘N Roses, opens with big energy, but also a sense of confusion and messiness. This makes it the perfect anthem for the HR tech market today. A plethora of new, best-of-breed point solutions arrive almost daily. HR’s Twitter feeds and LinkedIn channels are being overloaded with the announcement of the next big thing. And voicemails are jammed with messages promising amazing outcomes.

Some of the new technologies are in fact very good and represent innovation. That being said, there are also numerous products that represent long-existing technologies and are just new choices in already crowded markets. The influx of venture capital and private equity (PE) into the human capital solutions market is great, but not many of these PE folks have experience in the HR suite and most do not understand a day in the life of HR. They actually like new iterations of proven technologies because they think if they can just pick up a few points of market share, their investment will be bought by a larger established player. Of course, the investment people don’t care about the state of HR’s voicemail box.

HR Outsourcing

Taking Candidate Relationships to the Next Level

HRO Today Forum EMEA

By Taylor Thompson

With Glassdoor reporting that the average job opening attracts 250 resumes, it’s hard to believe that 65 percent of recruiters, according to Jobvite, report their biggest challenge in hiring as a shortage of available talent. So why are talent acquisition teams struggling to manage candidates? Many applicants may just be unqualified. However, when it comes to filling open positions within their organizations, talent acquisition and recruitment marketing teams often fail to access an entire hub of data readily available to them: their past applicants.

Beamery, a candidate-relationship software company, claims that the key to hiring candidates is not just forwarding available jobs, but building valuable employer-candidate relationships prior to the application process. That’s why with the launch of their company in 2014, their offices are already expanding to three major European and American cities and their clientele includes big-name companies like Facebook and VMWare. Beamery is truly taking the recruitment software industry by storm.
