By Mr Krishnan Bangaruswamy
Automation and Artificial Intelligence (AI) are the buzzwords today and are often mentioned in the same breath as machines and software. With the advent of new technologies, the recruitment process is also dependent on them as they help speed up the entire process. Right from the hiring process to the exit/retirement of a person from the company, technology touches every point in an employee's career.
Today, the tools in recruitment portals allow recruiters to go through massive amounts of data in just seconds. According to a few experts, by the year 2022, every process in recruitment will be automated and there might not be a need for HR recruiters. There is already a buzz around artificial intelligence which can efficiently screen people.
This year is going to be very challenging. Recruitment managers and leaders should be prepared for a different game plan. Organizations are looking at a faster way to get things done and they understand that a merger or acquisition is helping them sustain and grow in the business. Recruitment managers are now expected to be well-versed in the mergers and acquisitions space too.
