Recruiting Technology News: Measuring Recruiting Performance

Posted by JamesT

Every day we at Talemetry collect data for hundreds of thousands of candidate application experiences, job posting spend and performance, career site and social media traffic, and more. However, as with any data, the real question that needs answering is 'what are you going to do differently as a result of the data'? If you are just gathering it because you are interested, or just think you should, you likely aren't going to get the most of your recruiting analytics.

HR Tech 2013: The State of the HR Technology Market

Posted by JamesT

Walking onto the HR Tech expo hall floor is a confusing and intimidating experience for most HR technology buyers. When the doors to the expo hall opened, there was a lot to see: big booths, shiny new products, and many, many disparate technology pieces. As a buyer, it's overwhelming: lots of vendors and products, some whose technology overlap, all using the same industry buzzwords to tell completely different stories.

Managing Your Talent Ecosystem: Vendor Networks

Posted by JamesT

According to Bersin by Deloitte's Talent Acquisition Factbook, organizations spend over $125 billion a year on recruiting services and technology. We estimate that over $85 billion of that is spent on recruiting services ranging from recruiting agencies, job board posting, candidates assessments, background checks, drug testing, tax credit verification, and more to help find better candidates faster.

Given the spending across multiple categories, multiple vendors, and multiple integrations, having a thriving vendor network is a key part of an effective talent generation strategy. Sometimes we describe talent generation as an ecosystem -- a group of different networks that work together to produce the job candidates you’re looking for. Your vendor network is an important part of that ecosystem, and making sure it works efficiently for you will help bring you success in your recruiting efforts.
