Why HR Should Bet on Technology [INFOGRAPHIC]

What happens in Vegas shouldn’t always stay in Vegas, especially if it involves the future of hiring. Useful HR technology seems to be popping up daily, making it a sure bet to roll the dice on new technology.

Just look at a few of these stats and you’ll certainly consider spinning the wheel on new HR technology in order to hire the best:

  • 94 percent of recruiters plan to use social media in their recruitment efforts

  • More than 6 in 10 companies are now using video interviews in their recruiting process

  • 70 percent of active job seekers are using their mobile devices to look for jobs

New technology lets you see beyond a candidate’s poker face and allows you to connect with the best and brightest in your industry. Finding great talent should never be a gamble, but the traditional recruiting process takes far too long.

According to SHRM it can take between 29 and 43 days to hire. You don’t want to wait this long if you’re looking to beat the competition. It’s time to place your bets on new technology, so you can run your company with a full house of talent.

The infographic below takes a look at how video interviews and other new technology can help you get lucky and find the right person for your open positions:
