COVID-19 forced employers to rethink their talent models to find the right mix of contingent and permanent labor. It has also highlighted the importance of building for the future, with the agility to flex and scale based on external influences.
The recruitment and recruitment process outsourcing (RPO) industries are right in the middle of this evolution, and it’s an exciting time of change.
David Vincent, managing director for Randstad Sourceright in the UK & Ireland, explains what he’s seeing in the marketplace and what it means for RPO clients and providers: “Our most progressive clients are now beginning to take a much more holistic view of the talent landscape. We're also seeing that technology is being utilized to automate the recruitment process.”
Automating repeatable tasks allows recruiters and hiring managers to focus on the actual candidate experience. Technology can perform the routine aspects of sourcing, screening, scheduling interviews and more. “Randstad Sourceright tests and pilots thousands of pieces of technology innovation every year,” says Vincent.
