Technology, in my opinion, is made to support recruitment, not replace that function. Recruitment tools should help a recruiter to be successful at their role. They should streamline processes, allowing for simple engagement and tracking. They should provide reporting tools that not only support larger cost savings initiatives, but that can also contribute to workforce planning and understanding the talent landscape — not just within an organization, but in its talent pool.
