It’s an exciting time for our industry. In the three years since the SmartRecruiters Talent Acquisition System (TAS) came out of R&D, the recruiting industry has witnessed the kind of technological upheaval that’s transformed just about every business model around us, from marketing to manufacturing, real estate to retail, It’s been a long time coming for HR, which is strange, considering the degree to which the most influential business leaders give importance to the process.
Alphabet’s executive chairman Eric Schmidt knows that “hiring is reinforced as the most important thing a leader does”. Apple founder and maha-guru Steve Jobs considered the top bullet-point on his job description to be “recruiter”. Like many corporate recruiting teams, we struggled with finding the right formula for investing and measuring our recruiting resources to ensure maximum impact.
