To succeed today, organizations need to take advantage of information technology in every area of their business. Talent acquisition is no exception. Robust, reliable technology can help recruiters more effectively engage with candidates.
According to Aberdeen Group, the user experience is key. It is more important than ever to have friendly and interactive platforms. In terms of talent acquisition, companies that prioritize the candidate experience are more than twice as likely to improve their cost per hire on a year–by-year basis.1
In addition, social capabilities can enable recruiting professionals to use the Internet for job applications, social referrals and video interviewing. Mobile integration also enables users to connect with information where and when they need it.
With better tools and insight into people and data, organizations can much more quickly identify talent, match capabilities to market needs, retain the best talent and improve recruiting outcomes.
Simply put, recruiting organizations can replace traditional processes with information, automation and precise methods to engage and develop a smarter workforce.
