Innovation Starts Here

Elevate the hiring process with these hot tech products.

By the Editors

Today’s HR technology allows talent acquisition leaders to cast a wider net and improves the candidate experience for job seekers. From recruitment advertising and social media outreach, to sourcing, assessments, and referral programs, cloud- and mobile-based technologies have elevated the hiring process to improve the quality and fit of candidates -all while delivering a concierge-like service to top talent.

“Our expectations of the technologies have dramatically changed and the technologies are ahead of our expectations rather than being behind,” says William Tincup, CEO of Tincup & Co. “And for candidates, the game has changed in two fundamental ways: the expectation of corporate transparency and the delivery of said transparency. Meaning, candidates stalk our companies like we stalk them. And they have expectations past the initial job. Candidates today are okay talking about the first position with your firm, but they are more willing than any other generation to ask the ‘what’s next’ question of recruiters.”
