Ep 178: Recruiting Automation Fact or Fiction?


Recruiting automation is often talked about conceptually, but when you dig into the details, there is a big question mark around what is actually possible and what employers are actually currently doing in this area. At the same time, there are questions around quality, cost and candidate experience which just aren’t being adequately debated.

With this in mind, I decided it was time to investigate the issue in more detail, so I got together with experienced recruiting leader John Wallace to dig a bit deeper into the world recruiting automation.

In this episode you will find:

  • John Wallace’s thoughts and concerns about recruiting automation from the perspective of being the former head of resourcing at Barclays, Tesco Bank and Royal Bank Of Scotland.
  • An interview with Ben Gledhill, Heading of Resourcing at Yodel, on the practicalities of using technology to automate candidate communication at the front end of the recruiting process
  • An interview with Kevin Wheeler exploring the potential and likely future direction of recruiting automation
  • Mine and John’s summary and closing thoughts
