The Role of Recruiters In A Post-COVID World
On the economic side of the pandemic, recruiters are the unsung heroes. They have the power to connect people to jobs. For many candidates, connecting and speaking with a recruiter is the best way to get their foot through the door.
In a noisy market that’s hard to navigate, who else is more qualified than a recruiter to point candidates in the direction of available opportunities?
To tackle this new hiring landscape, recruiters need two things: efficiency and scalability.
Hiring teams must work smart to better support high volumes of job seekers with less time on hand. The adoption of recruitment technology in the hiring process will help recruiters streamline their responsibilities and focus on tasks that will directly impact business goals.
In our previous eBook, we showed you that 57% of hiring teams don’t invest in recruitment technology and consider it a low priority initiative. This needs to change. The role of the recruiter today cannot be upscaled to facilitate a more virtual world unless recruiters do their part in upskilling themselves in using HR technology.
