Employers are shifting away from traditional hiring methods and this year. 75% say technology will play a larger role in their companies hiring process in 2019, and 22% percent plan to increase their spend on AI-powered recruiting software.

These findings come from the 2019 Entelo Recruiting Automation Trends Report which surveyed 625 talent acquisition professionals from around the world to identify the trends and innovations driving the recruiting and hiring industry forward. highlights of the survey include:

  • Time spent sourcing is hindering productivity. On average, talent acquisition professionals spend an average of 15 hours a week (a 16% increase from 2018’s report) sourcing candidates for a single role, and some groups spend more.

  • When it comes to engaging candidates, email is king. 39% of recruiters rank email as the preferred outreach method, followed by phone/text (33%), while Linkedin inMails (13%) has dropped to 3rd place
