Brodie added, “While emerging technologies including artificial intelligence, biometrics and blockchain are slowly seeping into recruitment, today, hirers can maximise the potential of established tools such as text messages to get ahead of the competition. And when you consider that approximately 95% of the text messages people receive are opened, read and responded to within just three minutes you can see why. When you are able to leverage these tools more effectively, you will be able to better engage and manage applicants – while also creating time for tasks that add real value to your work.”
