Ep 36: Three Recruiting Revolutions

I’ve recently returned from HR Tech Fest in Sydney and while I was in Australia I was planning on interviewing my good friend Dave Drury, a thought leader in Experience Design for HR. However Dave had other ideas and when I got to his office he decided that he wanted to interview me instead!

Our conversation covers a lot of ground and some of the topics we discuss include:

•    The three revolutions we have seen during our careers in recruitment

•    The talent centric future of the industry

•    Key trends for the next five years

•    The biggest problem with HR Technologies

I also talk about what I’ve learned from doing the podcast this year, who my favourite guests have been and give some hints about some exciting developments in 2016

One thought on “Ep 36: Three Recruiting Revolutions

  1. So the third revolution is mobile and it will be driven by the structured data coming from tapping multiple choices. It will surely take some time until there will be enough data to draw conclusions for the critical mass to drive virality. (Twitter is full of examples of large corps evolving performance evaluations to a mobile centric, continuous, experience )

    Ha-ha for ’employer branding’ – now I got the perfect reply for its fans.

    The issue with hr tech is that it is very hard to find the perfect use cases for an application to be easy enough to use.

    Also, there are many solutions not converted into apps (or exes), they are just web based (sort of Jack of all trades). And to go from feature rich to simple to use is causing issues also on the marketing side (why would an hr manager used to feature rich and bug free, buy a few features, for more money, hosted outside their office).

    It is not easy to consumerise hr tech. (Coming from hr tech myself, I spent thousands of hours trying to figure best use cases to hook the user to certain functionality; Nir Eyal is a great place to start – for enthusiasts)
