With an increasing shortage of talent, recruiters are facing new classes of challenges. Clients want candidates with perfect skill sets to onboard as fast as possible, and candidates looking for assignments often have their pick of roles from several competing agencies.
AI-driven solutions have become the go-to option for solving those problems. Automated processes and chatbots have become mainstream and have expedited the time and energy it takes to find the right fit, engage with candidates, and measure performance.
But one challenge remains that not every AI platform can solve: giving candidates and clients the personal touch that can set one recruiter apart from the others.
As any staffing veteran will tell you, making a human connection is critical when it comes to getting candidates to sign on, and getting clients to feel comfortable bringing workers onto their team. It also builds trust that accrues over time and builds into repeat assignments for workers and clients alike.
But in a remote recruiting world – making that human connection isn’t always easy. Here are four ways that staffing can get personal and make a difference for your team.
It's a candidate's market right now which means that employees have an abundance of opportunities to choose from and can leverage the best one. It’s a power shift from the traditional hiring model where candidates – not hiring managers – have the upper hand. This puts pressure on companies to present the best offer to candidates. If candidates feel indecisive, they can also move between jobs quickly causing sudden labor shortages. As a result, recruiters must get creative to sell a job because workers can be selective right now.
Business Technology Today
Today, technology and business move extremely fast. I mean, extremely fast, on a global scale.
Globalization means we can conduct business on both sides of the globe. Think of it like a chain reaction. As certain things in business and technology change, related things change, too. With the global economy, these changes ping-pong across the globe faster than they ever have. We’re interconnected.

That’s no surprise – The hiring economy is changing. Embedded HR departments have to adapt fast to keep up, or outsource their hiring needs to experts.

Updated, July 2019: Since we initially published this post, it has become clear that recruiting professionals are seeking automation for tasks such as sourcing, candidate care and job posting. This is evidenced in Staffing Industry Analysts’ (SIA) recently published “North America Internal Staff Survey 2019,” in which recruiting and hiring professionals provided a “wishlist,” via survey, for task automation. Clearly, organizations which procure the software which automates for these tasks will win the future.

Updated, July 2019: Since we initially published this post, digitalization has become a bigger and bigger factor in recruiter and hiring organization power.
We recommend that organizations interested in digitalization seek technology that prioritizes recruiter success and effectiveness. Simply digitizing is not enough. Many organizations digitize. They are still hobbled by poor use of the data they’ve acquired. Digital technology must be built to help you innovate. Innovation means using data in smart, efficient ways.
In other words, digital alone is insufficient. You need technology that makes sense of the data that the digital age provides. As evidenced by JobDiva’s recent awards—such as being named a FrontRunner by Software Advice for the second consecutive year—JobDiva is exactly that technology.
Recruiter success will be an important factor going forward in 2019. Data is useful. But how does your technology help you use it?
