Really excited to see UK hiring managers rating the following as top trends for 2018:
- enabling a diverse workforce to improve culture and boost performance
- reinventing the interview process to better understand the candidate and to reduce interviewer bias (using things like VR assessment and job auditions)
- Improved data usage for better hiring decisions
- AI to source, screen and nurture candidates, saving time and removing bias
These certainly align with where we're focusing our efforts so good to see that there is a demand for change.
“Over the past few years, hiring talent has become a repetitive, and sometimes transactional, process,” Jon Addison, Head of Talent Solutions at LinkedIn UK, said. “But there is a shift happening, and these emerging trends are helping to elevate recruitment to a more strategic profession that focuses on the most important and gratifying parts of the job - the human part and thinking critically about how to win the right talent.”
