With recruiters facing high req loads and a challenging hiring market, organizations have been reevaluating their TA tech stack more than ever before. What are they looking for? When it comes to tech trends – we often turn to CXR friend, Madeline Laurano of Aptitude Research.
On a recent podcast with Madeline, we chatted about her latest report on onboarding. While it is a critical piece of retention – especially during an employee’s first 90 days – it’s often the most neglected component. Her report highlights how technology can support the onboarding experience while ensuring compliance.
Slowly but surely we’re seeing more of that support from technology providers including a long overdue focus on recruiter experience within their platforms. The recruitment industry was not immune during the “Great Resignation.” Facing more burnout than ever, recruiters were also leaving their jobs in droves. One of the reasons? Technology that wasn’t built for them. In a recent interview with Unleash.ai Madeline shared, “The TA tech stack is built for heads of TA or for IT…one in two recruiters would leave their job for better technology.”
Another trend we’ve all seen is that the very nature of recruiting has evolved. It’s no longer primarily inbound and instead is a combo of candidate engagement, recruitment marketing, and internal mobility. Tech stacks are evolving to support those efforts.
Want to talk more tech stacks, vendors, processes & plans? Later this month, we’ll be coming together for our Talent Operations Meeting.
