I recently hosted a webinar on the future of talent acquisition and asked the audience to consider this question. Will there ever be as many recruiters again as there were in August 2022?
The arrival of universally available generative AI and a harsh economic climate has caused the perfect storm in our industry. But how much long-term disruption of talent acquisition and potential elimination of recruiting roles could there be?
My guest this week is Allyn Bailey, a highly experienced talent acquisition leader who previously held a global role at Intel and is now Executive Director of Hiring Success at SmartRecruiters.
A couple of weeks ago, Allyn put out a challenge on LinkedIn that she was prepared to debate her belief that a major organisation would move to recruiterless recruiting within the next 18 months. Because I consider her one of the most innovative thinkers in the industry, I took the opportunity at the recent UNLEASH America event to learn more about her hypnosis. I also got her thoughts on the future structure of talent acquisition teams and her advice around reskilling and retraining for those at risk of being displaced.
In the interview, we discuss:
• Fungibility and flexibility of technology
• Can you build a future-proof tech stack?
• Is it possible to implement a relationship-based recruiting strategy in a world of management by transactional metrics?
• Can AI be more human than humans?
• Can technology now address every step in the TA process?
• Will we see recruiterless recruiting within 18 months?
• The nuances of the hypothesis
• The TA team of the future
• TA Ops, system and experience design
• Will candidates push back?
• Legislation and regulation
• Reskilling and retraining.
