Recruitment has always been a challenge, from sourcing the right talent to ensuring that they accept your offer, and if they do, ensuring that they actually show up for the job! In 2019 and beyond, technology will still not be able to make people demonstrate the professionalism needed to accept/reject a job offer optimally. What it will do, however, is help you predict who is more likely to show up and stay on the job for a longer period. How else will technology help recruitment? Let’s hear it from the experts.

Before technology can help streamline recruitment, the recruitment strategy needs to be modified. The challenge is to find the best candidates by treating them with the kind of attention they are used to from marketers and advertisers. Think Amazon and Netflix’s recommendations based on past viewing history. Or think of the personalized experience customers get after one visit to a restaurant where they shared their birth date. Treat potential candidates like customers, and you are likely to go further in developing a meaningful, lasting relationship with them. And here's how technology will help you.

Expert Opinions on the Future of Recruitment

Let’s keep in mind that not all technologies are accessible and implementable just yet. But they hold huge potential for recruitment. With that said, here’s what experts predict for the future of recruitment:

1. Blockchain is not just the foundation of cryptocurrency, it can help in recruitment

The blockchain can be called a digital ledger that stores data and verifies and validates cryptocurrency transactions. This means it has the potential to validate other critical data as well. So, in the world of hiring, recruiters can use blockchain technology to verify the educational credentials of potential candidates as well as verify their employment history.

This helps recruiters in two ways: a) using smart contracts, it instantly eliminates the need to track multiple sources to verify data, and b) because of this enhanced level of verification, recruiters can leverage blockchain technology to hire more contract and gig workers more easily.

For candidates, being able to upload their information on a protected network without exposing it to third parties such as job websites can have them assured that their data is protected.
