Machines are better at hiring talent than humans. Or so they tell us. Sourcing, candidate screening, job matching, source of hire data, time to hire metrics – all of these and more are aided or provided by tech tools and systems. Technology certainly makes the role of the recruiter more refined, effective, and efficient, but we can't remove people from the mix entirely. We think that the human touch is still a vital component to making successful hires. Even with cognitive technology at our fingertips, the last say on a hire is a person, not a machine.
Your talent community craves personal contact. Who wouldn’t? We live in a world of machines; in a world of a million ways to stay connected without ever having to actually talk to someone. So it’s nice, feeling like someone is taking the time to talk to you – just you. But we know that’s not the most effective way for a recruiter to spend their time, especially if your talent community is made up of thousands of people.
