There is a famous quote that states, “The only thing you can control in life is your reaction.” For talent acquisition leaders constantly facing the challenge of hiring volatility, these words ring very true.
Emerging technologies are changing the way companies recruit. One of the rising offerings is artificial intelligence (AI), which can level the playing field for candidates. Top recruiters predict AI will eliminate the unfair advantage of a fancy resume or pedigree for candidates. Instead, applicants will need to rely on different abilities to stand out in processes using AI.
Anyone who’s trying to recruit tech talent these days will attest that it’s far from being a walk in the park. And by the looks of it, it’s not going to get any easier soon. The demand for tech talent is projected to further increase by a significant 12% in the coming year.
As one of the most globally recognized brands in the world, this client had challenges within one of its biggest hiring profit centers in Sales. Their prior decentralized Talent Acquisition structure placed a heavy staffing burden on line managers who struggled to get the hiring results and achieve a balance between staffing and their functional business responsibilities. This combination of missed hires and lost productivity time from line leadership put revenue at risk. In 2013, this client turned to Sevenstep to drive a laser-focused TA strategy for this high impact hiring area.

As HR and Talent Recruitment professionals, we sometimes have the opportunity to sit on “both sides of the fence” – in the business, and as a vendor. Such is the case with my own career and many of those in my network.
This is also the case for many of the corporate functions across the ecosystem; especially within Technology, eCommerce, Marketing & Creative, and Operations.
