#WorkTrends Recap: Recruiting Trends and 2017 Predictions

The world of recruiting and talent acquisition has evolved over the past few decades… and changes are predicted to continue well into the near future.

The HR Technology space is teeming with options and competition with new companies coming onto the scene every day. Many will see a bright future, but others will barely see the light of day.

This week, special guest host Tim McDonald hosted Talent Board co-founder and chairwoman Elaine Orler to discuss recruiting trends and predictions for the next year.

Tim and Elaine discussed what trended this year and where they think the industry can and will go.

Here are a few key points that Elaine shared:

  • Businesses need to define what they want versus what they need before they shop for HR tech platforms
  • Social media is now moving more to interactions and awareness of where people are
  • Recruiting technologies fail because of the inability of the business to be prepared for new solutions
