Without a doubt, technology is influencing every part of our lives including HR and talent acquisition. Experts have mixed opinions on what this could mean for the future. Will the humanity in Human Resources be eliminated by artificial intelligence? Will predictive tools cause great candidates to go unhired? Time will only tell how HR tech like AI recruiting and predictive analytics will change how we hire and manage employees. However, as we look at emerging tools, we can’t help but be excited by the possibility of improving the process. Here are a few instances of how tech is helping teams from our partners at XOR, IQTalent and CyberGrants.#RedBranchWeekly: Recruiting #AI, analytics and HRTech are changing the Talent Acquisition game: Click To Tweet
AI has caused quite a ruckus. Unfortunately, many fear a robot takeover like that of a dystopian novel. I like a good sci-fi story as much as the next person (Portal is one of my all-time favorite games after all), but AI just isn’t that sort of issue. Tools like the ones XOR explores in this article actually help humans better focus on, well, recruiting other humans. Tech has a way of automating process more efficiently and with better accuracy so pros can focus their attention on connecting with their talent. Take a look at this article and see all the ways recruiting AI can benefit a very human HR and recruiting process.Will #AI take the human out of human resources? @xor_ai explores the question in #RedBranchWeekly: Click To Tweet
Traditional hiring practices are always changing. A few decades ago, “traditional” would be classified ads in a newspaper. Now, it’s a job ad with a description posted on a career site or board. At the end of it all, there’s still the waiting for an application and resume. Sure, there are variances as some companies invite the use of social media, networking, texting, etc. but does incorporating these elements really make for a better process overall?

Tech isn’t just changing the way we source and hire. HR is benefiting from some better systems and tools.

CyberGrants knows how much of a missed opportunity this could be, so they created this quick read. It explores some incredible ways tech is improving employee engagement in CSR programs.#RedBranchWeekly: Tech can help improve employee engagement in #CSR according to @CyberGrants.
