Flash into the Future: 10 Talent Acquisition Predictions for 2018

Derek Herman

Yesterday, we launched our ebook, 10 Talent Acquisition Predictions for 2018, discussing some pretty interesting concepts and past predictions that have come true.

 

Artificial intelligence, machine learning bots, and virtual reality have made their presence known. At the rate we’re going, we could see a complete technology takeover in the near future - could Skynet become our reality?

 

In an effort to stay ahead of the tech curve and see the road ahead, we surveyed a panel of 10 recruiting and HR thought leaders from various organizations to understand their opinions of how they see technology influencing talent acquisition.

 

Their responses covered a ton of ground:

 

  • Improvements in Diversity & Inclusion

  • Demonstrations of a “day-in-the-life” to candidates

  • Stronger communication in the recruiter and candidate relationship

  • Automatic methods for sourcing job seekers

  • Complete disintegration of siloed HR practices

 

The beautiful thing about technology is that its application is endless. These experts collectively have over one hundred years of HR, TA, entrepreneurial, and technology experience. They have the ability to foresee how tech can resolve some of the colossal inconveniences surrounding recruitment strategy.
