Share This Post

For the past few years, the headlines have been packed with news of technological disruption in every industry, from food delivery to travel to dating. 

But what about hiring? While the world of recruitment undoubtedly requires a human touch, it’s an industry that is overdue for its own tech revolution. After all, a smoother, more enjoyable hiring process is a win for everyone, whether you’re a candidate, a recruiter, or a CEO. Candidates would be happy to spend less time job hunting and HR teams would love support to help them fill roles faster. 

Fortunately, the tech renaissance has arrived in recruitment. While it may not be as flashy a disruption as in other fields, the innovations arriving in the industry have the potential to be game-changing hiring solutions.  

Tech innovations to watch in HR 

Curious about what’s new? Keep an eye out for these new hiring solutions entering the world of HR, especially in recruitment. 


The AI revolution has arrived in HR. The new AI hiring tools on the market are specially designed to help recruitment teams become more informed and efficient, with functions for crafting job ads, communicating with candidates, and identifying top talent. With so many innovations available, AI hiring solutions are already making life easier for recruiters and helping companies fill roles more efficiently and effectively. 

Social recruiting 

Companies are beginning to take advantage of the power of hiring through social media. By reaching out to talent on the platforms where your best candidates spend their time, your hiring team can reach new audiences. Through social recruiting, recruiters can also find candidates who might not be actively searching for a new role, but would consider one if the right job came along. 

Predictive analytics 

Predictive analytics is making big waves in the world of hiring. Using internal and external data, this tech can forecast changes in the job market as well as a company’s own hiring needs to determine how many employees to hire, and when. The data-driven approach to recruitment is helping HR departments shape their strategies and make more informed decisions. 

How tech can help HR teams hire better 

Considering how tech innovations can help your HR team get ahead? Here are a few ideas to get you started. 

Get a boost from social media 

Social media has unlimited potential to supercharge your company’s recruitment efforts. Use it to enhance your brand and expand the pool of candidates you reach. 

Take advantage of the power of social media to elevate your brand in the eyes of future employees. Today’s candidates—especially the younger generation of workers—prefer to work for companies that share their values. Providing information about what’s important to your brand online is an ideal way to appeal to potential hires who might be a perfect fit for your team.  

Leaders at staffing or recruitment agencies, can share stories about successful candidate placements and information about potential roles and career opportunities. By leveraging social media platforms to tell employee stories, you provide an inside look into what it’s like to work at your company. 

In addition to these branding opportunities, social media allows recruiters to connect with more candidates than ever before. Grow your company’s online following organically, by sharing useful content or trying sponsored ads to widen the hiring pool. Sponsored ads can help to target candidates with the specific characteristics you’re looking for, while reaching people outside the usual channels. Ensure your company is noticed  by investing in content design that positions your brand in the forefront of a sea of opportunities. 

(H3) Keep track of candidates easily with a software solution 

An essential element of any recruitment team’s technological arsenal is a software solution specially designed for your industry or sector. Storing candidate data is just the beginning. With hiring software,  you keep track of documents, sort through candidates quickly and easily with search and filter settings, and generate shortlists at the touch of a button. 

Look for a software solution that has the extra functionality and integrations you need for the kind of hiring you do. For instance, if you need to manage candidate certifications and licenses, search for a platform that will automatically store them and keep track of their expiry dates. You can even find options that will send notifications to candidates when it’s time to renew. Read more about that here. 

(H3) Use virtual tools to streamline the hiring process 

The candidate experience matters. When hiring processes are slow and require significant legwork, it can deter candidates from applying. Fortunately, new tech can streamline recruitment to ensure that you keep great employees in the hiring pipeline. 

Use new tools to improve the recruitment experience throughout the candidate’s journey. With the help of AI, some hiring platforms can pull candidate information directly from resumes so applicants don’t have to fill out repetitive forms or applications. You can also make it more convenient for candidates to meet with you by conducting interviews online. Plus, complete background checks faster with the help of virtual tools to speed up the onboarding process. 

By integrating a range of virtual tools to fast-track your recruitment process, you’ll provide a smoother experience that candidates will appreciate. We bet your team will like it, too. 

(H2) The bottom line 

Tech is changing hiring for the better—but you’ve got to be ready to hop on the trends, before you might miss out. New platforms and tools are revolutionizing how companies hire, and the teams that are willing to adapt and integrate new technologies will have the edge. 

In today’s competitive labour market, taking the leap with a new tool is an investment worth making.
