Embracing Technology to Improve the Hiring Process

A few years ago, we posted about some cutting-edge recruiting ideas which explained how technology can improve your recruiting efforts. But when you broaden your focus to the whole hiring cycle, you’ll find even more ways technology can make the process more efficient.

Take a look at the impact technology can have on improving the candidate’s experience as well:

Technology Tools for Better Hiring


From online job placement services to social media advertising, technology has revolutionized the recruiting process. This includes tools that companies use, as well as the approach they take to developing talent. For example, automated Application Tracking Systems can help you keep track of applications and organize them to streamline the next step.


Once you’ve filled your talent pool, you need to determine what candidates have the traits to fill a job posting. There are technological solutions that work like a filtration system to automatically rank employees based on experience, skills, and even behavioral factors.


It’s important for employers to get creative. This is true when employees communicate with each other, and for recruiters communicating with candidates. Videoconferencing technology like Microsoft Teams offers an agility that has proven desirable.

Conducting Background Checks

Background checks are firmly entrenched in hiring processes. In fact, 95 percent of surveyed employers say they perform some form of background check on candidates, according to the Society for Human Resource Management. But while this process traditionally involved a lot of phone work, technology has made it easier to detect red flags. Employers no longer need to rely solely on the references. Instead, sites like LinkedIn can help you connect candidates with key people they’ve worked with. This gives a more complete picture of their work history and provides contacts who can substantively speak to a candidate’s qualities.
