Employee Benefit News: employers go on an HR tech ‘buying spree.’


Indications gathered through Randstad Sourceright’s 2019 Talent Trends research show that 92% of the 800 leaders surveyed believe that “technology enhances the attraction, engagement and retention of talent.” With that comes an innovative rollout of new tools and an eagerness to invest in HR tech to optimize sourcing, screening and hiring.

Jason Roberts, head of talent analytics and technology at Randstad Sourceright says, “to make a truly transformational impact on talent acquisition, you need to invest in the tools that most effectively empower your people and processes.” That includes AI, big data, machine learning, predictive talent analytics and other tools that level the playing field for all candidates.

“If your organization is not able to attract, develop and retain new skills, it will almost certainly fall behind,” says Randstad Sourceright CEO, Rebecca Henderson. She continues, “... human capital leaders are in the driver’s seat to deliver these skills and accelerate growth and market share.”
