2021 is here and with it a whole new era in hiring and recruitment. But what does talent acquisition look like in the midst of a pandemic?
The short answer is digital—very, very digital. Thanks to Covid-19, the traditional hiring process has been harder than ever this year as recruiters and candidates scrambled to adapt to a fully remote experience. But seismic shifts are well underway—both in the way companies hire and in the traits they’re looking for in 2021.
Across almost all industries, digital transformation has been accelerated by the pandemic, forcing companies of all sizes to fast-track their digital plans. According to a Sage report, 24% of businesses have started using AI for their talent acquisition needs, with 56% of managers planning to adopt automated technology in the next twelve months.
Today, it's vital for organizations to stay ahead – the competition for talent is too great, and it's highly likely that competitors are already using digital tools as part of their recruitment processes.
Using technology to improve certain HR and recruitment functions enhances the employee experience. Furthermore, by digitizing large sections of the onboarding process, HR can spend more time on strategic matters and focus on supporting managers with any role-specific onboarding processes.
Additionally, digitizing large sections of the onboarding process seamlessly introduces and educates new hires about their employer, the company culture, company mission, and values.
Digital tools have also been successful in helping new employees acclimate and add value quickly. Google found that by developing an onboarding program, the productivity of its new hires rose by 15%. Some companies assign online mentors, while others create orientation websites with frequently asked questions to speed assimilation.
