At Talentify, we are big believers in the power of data. To know is to be able to act in a deliberate manner, and that is far more likely to yield results than guesses, no matter how educated.
However, as human beings we don’t always know how to read that data, nor do we necessarily have the experience necessary to understand how best to react. That’s one of the main reasons why it’s important to rely on tools when you have to. And the best, most advanced tools available today incorporate machine learning.
The world has changed, particularly when it comes to talent acquisition. There has been a shift where companies have to genuinely compete in order to recruit top talent. This means better sourcing, increased candidate engagement, and strategic spending on the many job posting services available.
Fortunately, all of these issues can be addressed through the utilization of programmatic recruiting solutions like Talentify.
Think AI will replace recruiters? Think again. It’s making them more powerful than ever as ambassadors, overseers, and protectors of their companies’ values.
For all the headlines it has managed to grab lately, artificial intelligence remains a bit of an enigma — and a somewhat alarming one at that. With reports that up to half of all the activities people are paid to do could potentially be automated, modern AI, machine learning, and robotics sometimes get a bad rap — and it’s easy to get concerned.
Recruiters have always been prized for their ability to work with people. Now, they’re starting to work with robots, too.
As artificial intelligence has found its place in the industry, helping source, screen, schedule and interview candidates, recruiters have taken on newer, more important roles in their companies than ever before. Rather than focusing solely on the upfront tasks of finding and onboarding talent, AI has freed them up to concentrate on later-stage issues like ensuring candidate success.
While a programmatic system makes recruiting a lot easier, it is not a replacement for a human being at the wheel. Some systems require extensive programming, but even the higher quality ones like Talentify need somebody to provide it with goals in order to ensure that you are not overloading your budgets month to month.
Programmatic recruitment is an important trend in sourcing new staff for companies large and small. It can speed up the hiring process, reduce your cost per qualified candidate, and improve employee retention in the long run by utilizing complex algorithms to determine who is searching for work and how to get the best people.
However, many people still don’t understand exactly what programmatic job recruitment actually is. Fortunately, we’re here to help you get a better grasp of what programmatic does that is different from traditional sourcing and how it can benefit your company.
As recruiting becomes a more well respected and integral part of the corporate structure, new technology is emerging to help source and hire talent in a variety of industries. Far from replacing recruitment jobs, these technical solutions are freeing up HR professionals to focus on tasks that can’t be done by computers, including interviewing and candidate research.
The most often overlooked cost of running a business is recruitment. This is especially true of new business owners, but even people who have run their companies for years don’t take the time to consider how much money they will have to spend to maintain the necessary staff to keep operations running smoothly.
However, the fact of the matter is that it can cost quite a bit in terms of both actual capital expenditure and employee hours, not to mention costs related to efficiency issues caused by understaffing until you get the right candidate.
Over and understaffing are highly prevalent across industries in companies of all sizes. Even businesses that have been in operation for decades can struggle to ensure that they are hiring enough people (most companies err in this direction) but not too many.
Fortunately, with the right data, you can get a much more accurate idea of how many people you actually need. While these are estimates, basing your estimation on solid analysis, you’ll find that they are much more accurate than they had ever been previously.
