Recently, there is a lot being talked about automation, robotics, artificial intelligence and how it is going to impact the future of recruiting. Estimates suggest that the number of jobs lost to automation in the next decade could be around 1 million just in the US. But seldom is there a discussion on the new job opportunities it will create. Advocates of automation say that the number of positions created by these technological advancements will outweigh the number of lost jobs.
The staffing industry is at the epicenter of the automation disruption. Many employers are using automation to speed up the recruitment process. This not only will free up the time of recruiters but will also eliminate human biases in the hiring process.
According to a 2017 study from global recruitment firm Randstad, 91% of U.S. job applicants believed that technology has made applying to jobs easier and efficient. They even mentioned that they felt more respected and engaged in the process when they receive automated updates and emails.
Many staffing firms are benefitting from Salesforce to find the perfect match for employers and job seekers. Salesforce workflows can be leveraged to automate almost every hiring process and achieve greater efficiency. Salesforce workflows allow you to automatically send alerts, assign leads or candidates, update data, and schedule outbound messages – all from your fingertips.
