Recruitment will die in 2018!

As recruitment technologies, social networks, algorithms and predictive models become so sophisticated that they can exceed the performance of human recruiters, there are many who believe this is the beginning of the end for the recruitment industry. For example, the latest text analysis algorithms can pick out skills and experience far better than humans can, about 10 million times faster.

Paul Hooper, Impact Recruitment Services Director explains, “We couldn’t disagree more. Here at Impact, we have always focused on building relationships and offering quality, and we have shown time and time again that the plethora of recruitment tools and technologies available are only effective when managed by experienced and qualified people in a way to suit the needs of the business they are recruiting for.

The team at Impact will continue to adapt and take advantage of recruitment innovations just like we always have done, to confidently demonstrate our value as a recruitment partner. The companies we work with are typically complex and need to focus the majority of their time and energy on their core business – the main reasons recruitment is outsourced in the first place and this won’t change.”

So the message is clear, as far as Impact Recruitment Services are concerned, the recruitment industry continues to offer them opportunity and success. Technology is a necessity and a differentiator, but people are Impact’s priority and will always be best placed to make the right hiring decisions.
