The other day I got contacted by a large enterprise level TA leader. She had a major problem about to hit them. They had to hire thousands of people and she was hoping I could tell her which chatbot to use to help them.

Sweet! I love TA Tech, let’s talk about some of my favorites!

I’m here at #SHRMTalent in Las Vegas and hanging out at the Smart Stage this afternoon as I’m in the mood for smaller deep dive sessions. SHRM’s Smart Stage is a neat way to gather the goods – 18 minute presentations from Subject Matter Experts who give you just enough to think about.

When I joined the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) as its Chief of Staff in January, I trusted that I would enjoy the work, but worried I wouldn’t develop a passion for the work. I was wrong.

When it comes to recruiting sources, it’s not only important to find and try new ones, but to evaluate their effectiveness.

I spoke at a conference five years ago in which I declared, “resumes suck.”  The context was about over-inflated resumes filled with key words, and on the other side, employers who dismiss great talent based on a piece (or ten) of paper. In short, resumes needed to be retired and replaced with a more dynamic way of matching talent with needs.

The HR profession has changed significantly over the past decades as the profession has evolved from basic personnel management to a strategic business function that leads a wide range of practices and competencies. Today’s HR powers not only a service economy, but a knowledge economy, and as this knowledge economy grows, it is critical that organizations also evolve their approach to talent.

Recruiting technologies that have emerged over the past few years have been a boon for HR when it comes to unloading many of the burdensome administrative tasks that accompany the hiring process. However, with all this new technology, companies can run the risk of alienating the candidate with a cold and impersonal experience. Balance is needed.

Recruiting is no longer post-and-pray, cost-per-hire, and/or attempting to hire someone at the lowest possible salary (easy, easy—at least I now have your attention).

The job description was inaccurate, the mobile application was time-consuming, the receptionist was rude, the interviewer was 45 minutes late and HR never communicated that you didn’t get the job—or why. You never hear from the company again. After all this, you’re glad you didn’t get the job, and you relay your entire horrible experience on Glassdoor to warn others.
