Over the next couple of years, organizations will be more focused on artificial intelligence tools that will predict time-to-fill, candidate-to-job matching and employees most likely to leave their jobs.
DELRAY BEACH, Fla. (PRWEB) May 22, 2018
About one-third of organizations say they have a formal talent acquisition technology strategy and roadmap, with technology deployed for most talent acquisition processes in a consistent and integrated fashion according to Brandon Hall Groups Talent Acquisition Technology Study, with 295 responses from 39 countries and 31 industries.
Of those organizations, about three-quarters realized increases in productivity and quality hires since implementing their talent acquisition technology, the study showed, compared to just 35- 45% of organizations with no technology strategy or a loosely defined one.
"This research reveals data about current talent acquisition technology requirements and the emerging technologies that organizations plan to purchase in the near future," Brandon Hall Group CEO Mike Cooke said. "Over the next couple of years, organizations will be more focused on artificial intelligence tools that will predict time-to-fill, candidate-to-job matching and employees most likely to leave their jobs. As they make this leap forward, organizations seek providers to help them more than ever before. The research reveals the most valued competencies of a talent acquisition solution provider."
The biggest barrier to satisfaction with talent acquisition solutions — by close to a 2-to-1 margin — is the cost of the technology.
Other highlights of the research results include:
- Right now, the most critical technologies to organizations overall are applicant-tracking systems, onboarding solutions and analytics reporting.
- When considering replacing current talent acquisition technology, organizations favor an HCM solution that includes talent acquisition over a best-of-breed, point solution by a margin of 65% to 35%.
- The five most valued competencies of a talent acquisition solution provider are: Reporting/dashboards (79% of organizations), integration capabilities (77%), customer support services (72%), intuitive, user-centric interface (72%) and user training (71%).
