Guest post from

What role will hiring technology play in your 2022 recruitment process?

To understand the role of recruiting technology in this new year’s hiring process, we asked HR professionals and recruiters this question for their best insights. From centralizing data through ATS to global hiring, there are several ways hiring software impacts recruiting in 2022.

Here are nine ways hiring software is changing recruiting in 2022:

  • Centralized Data Through Applicant Tracking Systems
  • Quicker Recruiting Process
  • Employ Candidate Assessment Tools
  • Online Testing
  • Predict Candidate Fit
  • Use AI To Automate
  • Easier to Hire Globally
  • 90-second Personality Assessments for Fit
  • The Future Of Recruiting

Centralized Data Through Applicant Tracking Systems

With a hot job market, it’s essential to share opportunities through various job boards, platforms, and outreach. We leverage an Applicant Tracking System (ATS) to have one source that captures all the data – regardless of how the candidates apply. That way, we can post free and sponsored jobs, conduct outreach campaigns, and generate interest for multiple roles at once without any of the data remaining locked in separate systems. A centralized approach means you can ramp up hiring with various people having access to the most up-to-date info, decreasing data loss risk, and ensuring better continuity.

Quicker Recruiting Process

As a recruiting company, we can apply the services and recruiting technologies we provide to others to our hiring process. We take a look at candidates’ personalities and experience, trying to ensure they’ll fit in with our company culture. Once we advertise a position, we already know what we’re looking for, so recruiting technology helps us screen candidates to match the right job and do it faster.

Employ Candidate Assessment Tools

We help many companies find culturally-aligned talent, and we would be fools not to apply the same principles and methods we use to help others when trying to fill our positions. Since we know how valuable and effective they are, we utilize the same cutting-edge candidate-assessment tools to assist our clients. Our positions are the proving ground for the services and technological tools that benefit our clients.

Online Testing

Many companies who have moved to remote work will evaluate a candidate’s skills and competencies online. Companies will leverage technology tools to conduct assessments and other tests to ensure that the people joining the workforce have the desired skill set. The good thing is that these tools are optimized for mobile devices, meaning people can access the tests from nearly anywhere.

Predict Candidate Fit

Hiring software will have a more prominent role in the recruitment process in 2022. Artificial intelligence and machine learning are being integrated into many aspects of recruitment, from applicant screening to predictive analytics for personnel selection. In 2022, the most effective recruiters will use modern tech tools to find and screen talent. These recruiters can intelligently use the latest psychology and behavioral economics insights to predict how potential hires might react in certain situations before making an offer or not extending an interview invitation.

Use AI To Automate

Technology will play a huge role in our hiring process in 2022. We have just recently invested in a technology that helps sort through candidates’ resumes and gives us the best potential fits for the position using AI technology. This software will help automate the process of sifting through countless resumes and instead give us the top 10 or so that we can sort through ourselves. Our HR team is very excited about this new technology, and we are excited to use it in 2022. This AI-powered application process saves our team time and money and allows us to focus on the candidates that are the best fit for the position.

Easier To Hire Globally

Data analytics is predicted to play a significant role in global recruitment in the coming year. With the right technology in place, you can easily access data on the most effective sources to find the best talent. This information is essential for companies looking to recruit the best talent from all across the globe. This sets up the company for new markets and increases the chances of finding the perfect candidate for the job.

90-second Personality Assessments

There is no doubt that pre-employment talent assessments are valuable. They provide critical insights into a candidate’s personality, attitude, and hard skills. However, most are excruciatingly long and can turn candidates off. That is why in 2022, we’re adopting a lightning-fast, picture-based talent assessment tool that only takes 90 seconds to complete. With just a minute and a half of rapid-fire answers through a talent acquisition app called Traitify, we can significantly narrow our candidate pool to ensure we’re only looking at applicants that would be a good fit for our team.

The Future Of Hiring Software: 2022 and Beyond

The need for recruiting technology is not slowing down with the continued rise of AI, anti-bias software, and other all-in-one HR solutions. In 2022, the demand will only continue to accelerate and grow.

Au contraire, similarly to other industries, it’s automating more and more tasks away from recruiters. This has its pros and cons, of course, but whenever a machine can be programmed to do something for us and remain more objective while doing so, then well, it’s just a matter of time before it’s given that task.

Thus, HR professionals nationwide need to keep this in mind as recruiting is quickly becoming a highly quantifiable and automated role on par with marketing or sales.
The future is here, and it’s not leaving anytime soon.
