Recruitment technology - how to navigate the maze of options

Posted November 12th, 2019

Over the last few years, there seems to have been an explosion in recruitment technology (RecTech) – with an app for almost everything. Will 2020 be the year when the robots take over and replace recruiters? We all know that the answer is no. Recruitment technology is there to enhance business processes and free up recruiters’ time. It should give recruiters more time for activities that need the human touch, such as connecting with candidates and winning new clients.

Legislative changes, combined with skilled workforce shortages, mean that the candidate is now firmly in the driving seat in the world’s largest staffing markets – the US, Japan and the UK. While there is now greater access to candidate data, legislation requires recruiters to engage candidates to communicate with them and hold their details.

This might seem straightforward when dealing with active candidates, but when a large section of the target audience is made up of passive job seekers, recruiters need new ways to find and engage these candidates. There has been a strong response from the RecTech market, with an array of new solutions promising to help recruiters in this new and changing landscape.
