New trends that emerge help improve the recruitment process for job positions. With the economy stabilizing, more job positions are opening. Companies are hiring more often but they need to work very hard to find the best possible candidates. This means that recruiters are depending on new technology and resume screening to assist in the recruitment process. There’s also an increase in diversity in any job position. Companies are striving to have different people with different traits, which alters the recruitment strategy overall. We’ll look deeper into these trends to see what we can expect in 2017.
New recruiting technology and resume screening are new concepts that help companies find the right candidates. Human Resources data and analytics helps measure the quality of hires. These technologies help HR departments because it will assist in time consuming, repetitive tasks that set the department back. This software will help with screening candidates, analyzing job descriptions, and will increase mobile applications.
Since putting in an application today can be done with only a few clicks, companies are receiving hundreds of resumes per day. Resume screening technologies help screen each resume to see which candidates fit the job description. This sifts through a lot of resumes where applicants may not have any qualification at all. This saves the company time and money in the long-run and brings more qualified candidates to the company’s attention.
Workplace diversity is another trend since companies are striving for diverse work places that offer individuals of all racial background, sex, sexual orientation, etc. In fact, diversity is mandatory in most industries. Although this is great from a candidate’s perspective, this can be challenging for recruiters. They need to shift their recruitment strategy to attract diverse hires. This further increases technology-focused strategies, as recruiters will depend more heavily on technology to assist in achieving workplace diversity.
