UNLEASH 2019: High Tech Meets High Touch

Allegis Global Solutions

I’ve been in the recruiting industry for more time than I care to admit and have worked with literally dozens of applicant tracking systems, CRM platforms and sourcing tools at clients over the years, and at some point came to assume that all of these talent technologies were really more of a necessary evil than some sort of competitive advantage. These legacy systems of engagement and ERP tools remained largely unchanged over the years, since, ultimately, the recruiting process remains the same, even if the mechanisms have changed a bit. We’ve moved from print ads to programmatic, and from mailed CVs to mobile apply capabilities, and yet, recruiting has always been about matching the most qualified candidates we can find for the roles we’re paid to fill. And a good recruiter always figures out how to fill those roles, but I’ve found that the best hiring outcomes happen because of precisely the sort of experience and expertise technology can’t conceivably replicate. When you can consistently create scalable, sustainable and successful hiring programmes, as I’ve done at too many companies to count over the course of my career, it can be hard to take a step back, sometimes, and really look at the bigger recruitment picture. When what you’re doing is working, when you’re getting the results you want, it can be easy to forget to ask what you can be doing better, or more effective, or more efficient. As the old saying goes, if it’s not broke, don’t fix it – which was more or less my approach until recently when it comes to recruiting and technology. After attending the 2019 Unleash conference in Paris this past week, however, I think it’s safe to say that I agree with what seemed to be both a common consensus and recurring theme throughout the event. High tech and high touch aren’t mutually exclusive in recruitment, and the best hiring actually happens when you can use technology to augment and enhance, instead of replace or replicate, existing people processes. I know this sentiment is nothing new, of course, but for me, the content and conversations at Unleash really hit home with some incredible insights into where the world of work is at today, and where it’s headed tomorrow. I had the opportunity to network with a ton of some of the best minds and top experts in the talent acquisition industry, and I know I’m not alone when I say that the chance to talk shop with some of the smartest people in our business, to swap TA tricks and tips with the global leaders creating the roadmap for the future of recruiting, had me leaving Paris actually excited about what’s new and what’s next in our industry. It’s been a long time since I’ve had that feeling, if we’re being honest. I know I’m not the only one. I’m absolutely chuffed that so many members of the AGS team could join me for the trip across the Channel last week; I know that it’s never easy to get out of the office, but it’s important to all of us that we stay on the cutting edge of talent acquisition for our clients and customers – and increasingly, that means staying on the cutting edge of talent technology. It’s fair to say that after those two days in Paris, we here at AGS have a pretty good idea of where talent acquisition is actually at, where we’re going and what we need to do to get there. We’ve come back to the office inspired to put these insights into action, and wanted to make sure we were able to share some actionable advice and tangible takeaways from Unleash with the bigger recruitment community. You might be surprised that it’s not all about technology, but I think that whilst tech was obviously the focal point of Unleash, there seemed to be some real buzz around eliminating complexity and simplifying the way that we recruit – which is not something you’d normally expect at an HR Tech conference. The days of technology for the sake of technology seem to be numbered, as there was a clear consensus amongst both HR leaders and vendors alike that increasingly, the role of talent technology is to help enhance our interpersonal interactions, rather than automate them out of existence. Ideally, technology creates better candidate experiences, makes life easier for recruiting and HR end users and aligns directly with our business and our bottom line. It’s not about following the next new shiny object, or buying whatever “innovation” everyone else seems to be spending money on – it’s about getting real value, and real ROI, out of our talent technology investments. As Unleash served to repeatedly remind us, knowing how to measure, monitor and manage that investment really comes down to closing the biggest capability gap in talent acquisition – actual, actionable, analytics. Here’s how to make analytics add up for recruiting and hiring. Recruiting & Hiring The World of Work

The Art of Selecting Candidate Pre-Hire Assessments

Speaker: Melissa Dobbins, Founder & CEO, Career.Place

At the core of successful hiring practices is the fair and accurate evaluation of skills, abilities, knowledge and other criteria for a job. One powerful method to do this is through psychometric assessments. The right assessments used in the right way provide objective evaluation of criteria that are far more accurate than interviews alone. Unfortunately, choosing the wrong assessments or using assessments in the wrong way can lead to bad choices, biases, and even discriminatory practices that violate compliance standards.
