Take the Guesswork Out of Your HR Decisions with Contextual Talent Analytics

Dec 05, 2016

Unfortunately, from a talent perspective, the future of many companies today is resting on antiquated recruiting methods. If the stakeholders of those companies were to understand the consequences of that reality, most would have trouble getting a good night’s sleep.

Recruiters: When the Funnel’s Result is Based on One Person’s Judgment

If your company is like most, you are facing a growing need to identify, recruit, hire and develop the right talent for the right positions. This challenge means you invest heavily in HR and the recruitment process. Unfortunately, that significant investment often produces results far below what you expect and require.

We understand this conundrum at Spire Technologies, and we constantly find companies who have entrusted their futures to overworked, inexperienced and ill-equipped recruiters. This often includes the use of an ATS that is little more than a souped-up contact manager. With the immense numbers of resumes made possible by online submissions, most recruiters have mere seconds to glance at each application.

Moreover, most recruiters are unaware of specific talent requirements within the organization, relying on one-dimensional job descriptions to match with potential hires. In fact, a recent LinkedIn article notes, “76% of recruiters surveyed at the end of 2015 said locating candidates with skillsets which matched the criteria that their clients were looking for was the biggest challenge they faced.”
