Talent acquisition and recruitment are essential functions of any organisation, be it big or small. Job postings earlier were done mostly on print media. Hoardings, newspapers, magazines, etc. were used for listing job openings. Also, the reach of these openings was very limited. But now all the job openings are on a global level.
However, with technologies, the whole recruitment and selection process is streamlined nowadays to a whole new level. Recruitment Service Providers (RPOs) are implementing technologies such as Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML) for self-scheduling interviews and other processes. The right RPO solution can optimise your recruiting process, help reduce costs and enhance your overall business strategy, making the process of applying for a job till onboarding simple.
The evolution of the recruitment process
Technology has impacted our daily lives and the way industries operate. And the recruitment process is no different, as it has changed the way how recruiters and hiring managers work. With the advancement of technology, the reach and presence of businesses have widened. Glassdoor, LinkedIn, Indeed, and various other platforms have changed the recruiting industry.
The recruitment process earlier was a huge task. It was difficult to reach more and more people. The reach was very limited. However, due to technology, the reach has advanced to a global level. Using social media has helped beat the ifs and buts of recruiting.
Further, it was a tedious task to store recruitment-related data as it is vulnerable to data loss. With the backup feature, data can be restored easily in case of data loss.
With the invention of the cloud, you don’t need to store anything physically. Everything is stored over the cloud. Cloud computing provides the platform for storage and infrastructure. Everything is present virtually and can be accessed from anywhere at any time.
Technological impact on recruitment
The recruitment process has got a total makeover due to the introduction of technology. As per reports, over 98% of the fortune 500 companies use recruitment software for their recruiting process.
Here are a few areas where technology has played a significant role:-
Recruitment outsourcing- a boon to the recruitment process
Recruitment outsourcing streamlines the recruitment process as well as systems. There are several recruitment agencies that have an Applicant Tracking System (ATS). The process from job application to acceptance from recruiter, technical round, HR round till onboarding can be tracked makes the whole task a lot easier than before. The company doesn’t need to care about anything.
Outsourcing the recruitment process is cost-effective too. The recruitment outsourcing companies take care of job descriptions, marketing, and finding the right candidate. The companies only need to mention the vacancy and job profile details. Nowadays more and more companies are benefiting from this technology-enhanced system.
