5 Recruitment Tech Trends to Keep on Top of


Recruitment confidence is high, but employers are struggling to find the right skills they need to fill crucial roles. What are the key recruitment technology trends influencing how employers attract and retain good candidates?

There is little doubt that economic conditions are improving. Confidence in hiring intentions is high, with the Recruitment & Employment Confederation’s (REC) JobsOutlook reporting that more than eight in 10 employers plan to take on more staff in the coming months. But with that confidence comes a hurdle thanks to shortages of permanent workers with the right skills. The REC adds that 94% of organisations must operate on limited capacity to take on more work, and that many rely on a rolling roster of temporary workers to meet targets.

In this climate, how are recruitment approaches and technologies adapting to support employers? We look at the key themes and buzzwords shaping how we hire during 2016.
