Recruitment is a rapidly changing process in every company. Turnover is costly and companies now understand the importance of a strong - longterm team. So hiring became focused on retention.

Old school interviews and paper resumes are replaced by innovative methods that raise hiring efficiency. Tools are capable to assess candidates on potential loyalty, skills that will be necessary not only just now, but in the future too. Focused selection and the right decision is key in saving money for the future and the specialists that create value for the company, but how to make those companies realize they have these easy cost reduction opportunities?

Recruitment budgets are overspent on channels that turn out to be extremely inefficient. The ROI and the time spent usually end up being excessive in comparison to what can be done with automation.
