Staying up to speed on new technologies within the recruiting space is essential for talent acquisition leaders. However, the allure of shiny new tech can sometimes lead to distractions, overspending, and the introduction of disconnected one-off solutions that hinder efficiency.

Join us for a free webinar as we share the “dos and don’ts” of TA technology adoption.

Key areas of discussion will include:

  • Understanding Your Current System – How to evaluate your existing tech stack to understand its strengths and weaknesses, and how to identify specific recruitment challenges or bottlenecks that need improvement.
  • Selecting New Technology – How to translate business requirements into technical specifications for technology selection, how to best research potential solutions, and where to gather recommendations.
  • Staying Focused and Avoiding Distractions – How to stay focused on tech that addresses your recruitment needs and not get pulled into unintended directions.
  • Experimentation and Piloting – How to test technology without overly taxing your team, and how to measure successes and failures.
  • Managing TA Enablement Across Multiple Systems – Companies use an average of ten systems for hiring; understanding how these systems overlap, and where functionality is missing or underutilized is critical for improving TA effectiveness.
  • Staying Up to Date with the Market – As the pace of change in business and technology continues to accelerate, it is important to adopt a commitment to ongoing learning in order to ensure steady career growth.
