By Lamees Abourahma Thu, Nov 02,2017 @ AM

Technology is transforming industries including the talent acquisition and recruiting space.

Technology has also transformed the candidate and recruiter experiences. Arguably, "talent acquisition is becoming a consumerization practice, where candidates are treated as customers of the employer and expect a great experience," per Talent Acquisition Technology: Today, Tomorrow and Beyond, Zack Lahey, Aberdeen Group 2015. 

To understand the evolution of talent acquisition technology from a recruiter’s perspective, we spoke with recruiting veteran and Moore eSSentials’ Partner, Tricia Tamkin. Here is an edited version of our interview.

By Lamees Abourahma Tue, Aug 01,2017 @ AM

Many or most managers are incapable of distinguishing between performance and potential when it comes to hiring talent. Predictions about future success are abysmal. False positives are common. Could unconscious bias rooted in our brain be standing in the way of making the best hiring decisions? What are the best predictors of leadership and learning agility?

We’ve recently spoken with renowned speaker and published author, Kim E. Ruyle, about the topic. Kim reviewed research and provided a framework to accurately identify high potential talent, accelerate their development, and retain these critical employees.

Besides potential talent, our #RPOAWeekly covers workplace culture and the equilibrium between technology and human interactions in recruiting.
