Latest data shows that in a post-Covid world, recruiters must take advantage of innovative technologies in order to successfully compete for talent.
According to JobAdder, these technologies include video cover letters, SMS communications and online background checks.
The research found that 94% of recruiters and hiring professionals said using recruitment software has positively impacted their hiring process, and 68% said that the best way to improve recruitment performance over the next five years is by investing in new recruiting technology.
Rob Brodie, Head of Corporate Sales at JobAdder, commented on the findings, “At a time when the number of open job vacancies across the UK has surpassed one million for the first time ever, organisations are unsurprisingly scrambling to secure sought-after skills – and only those who can offer the slickest recruitment journey to candidates will victor in the war for talent. Technology has transformed the way we work. It streamlines processes, drives better candidate sourcing, helps recruiters to work more efficiently and improves the candidate experience. Today, automated processes that eliminate manual processing are vital to productivity.”
