An array of advantages can be gained for those who make use of new technologies in recruitment, from improved efficiency in filtering suitable candidates for roles through to better communication that can increase engagement and positivity surrounding the hiring process. Here, we examine some of the cutting-edge areas of recruitment where new technologies are now making a real difference.  The companies highlighted below are not owned by Allegis; we have successfully untilised them to transform the way we acquire talent for our clients.

Recruitment marketing

Delivering benefits in the pre-applicant phase is one of the hardest areas of recruitment at present, but technologies like SmashFly can provide a tangible boost to success in this area.

From core CRM to recruitment marketing, managing referrals, career site hosting and much more, this is a powerful tool that ensures businesses are able to transform and automate many aspects of their hiring.

SmashFly delivers increased outreach for organizations at the pre-applicant stage, ensuring they are able to position their brand to successfully engage with the top talent in their industry in the places where they are looking for jobs.

Artificial intelligence (AI) is one the boom areas of recruitment tech at present, with multiple applications for this technology now being leveraged.

The use of a personal AI recruitment assistant in the form of the Olivia Chatbot is a fine example of the power of AI right now.
