BenefitsPro: companies look to HR technology to win the war for talent.

The war for talent continues as a positive business outlook finds employers ready to focus on candidate attraction and employee retention.

According to Randstad Sourceright's 2018 Talent Trends Report, which surveyed 800 C-suite and human capital leaders in 17 countries, 76% of respondents plan to invest in HR technologies as part of their overall strategy. This includes data analytics platforms that can help drive decision-making throughout the talent lifecycle.

To be most effective, however, these technologies need to be coupled with a personalized approach to the candidate experience. That means keeping job seekers engaged throughout the process, considering both traditional full-time and contingent work arrangements, and being flexible in sourcing the right person – who could reside anywhere in the world.

“Beating the competition for talent in 2018 begins in the workplace,” says Randstad Sourceright’s CEO Rebecca Henderson.
