Talent acquisition can be sped up and improved with the use of technology and novel methods of searching for candidates and conducting interviews. Here are some tech recruiting trends to keep an eye on.
- HR and Recruitment Processes Digitalization
Recruiters save time by automating their processes by using algorithms to analyze resumes for keywords, a process that is highly valued by candidates from Gen Z. When your brand is presented to the right pool of prospects using a DSP platform, your job ads will be more effective, and you will gain better visibility.
- Work from home and remote hiring
Video interviews and virtual recruiting are becoming more common as software developers choose to work remotely. A video interview can be conducted using Skype/Zoom/Google meetings after asking candidates about their preferred tools. Approximately 74% of employees say that having the option to work remotely would reduce their likelihood of leaving a company.
- Hiring on a part-time basis
Over one in five Americans will be self-employed in 2022. Having tech specialists on call for short-term projects is a smart option for companies with technical debt or who need to reduce their technical debt. They don’t need to be fired once their work project is completed, and you pay them only for their time. By eliminating the in-house hiring and onboarding processes, you save hiring managers and HR executives a lot of time.
- Embrace diversity and inclusion
On a development project, it is imperative to have cognitively diverse teams to solve problems quickly and efficiently. Innovative solutions are more likely to be found when people from different backgrounds and perspectives work together. Additionally, it facilitates the retention of quality employees and makes it easier to attract qualified ones.
- A quick decision-making process
The trend of making quick decisions on behalf of employees is one of the most valuable aspects of tech recruitment. You should send an offer as soon as possible after you have qualified candidates. Likewise, you should evaluate their technical and soft skills and make sure you are the right fit.
- Perks and benefits that can benefit you
Nowadays, tech specialists have more job options, so they can easily switch companies. Due to the pandemic, nearly half of employers have added benefits to their employees. Recent statistics indicate that 16% of companies around the world are 100% remote, and 56% allow employees to work remotely.
- Employer branding
Employees prefer to work for brands they know and trust. Therefore, your company should not only appear to be a pleasant place to work from the outside, but it should also be the same from the inside. Take care of your reputation by learning more about recruitment marketing.
