I started this show last year to in order to educate recruiters and employers about how to better leverage technology to recruit.

SHOW TOPICS Entrance of Google and Facebook into the marketplace...discuss---implications for indeed....Google jobs...what are your clients saying Lots of new HR tech---is there a bubble? ...George how much got invested in 2017? Trends for 2018----on the enterprise side...does'nt HR tech have a login problem? AI in recruiting...what will it look like from a practical standpoint...will we move beyond just chat bots? Because the impact of technology on hiring has been far too many false positive and false negative hiring decisions, and because the cost of a bad hire is high — according to one expert, as high as $240,000 — I have predicted that we’ll soon see online competency marketplaces. Competency marketplaces will help candidates understand the jobs and careers they’re most likely to match, and help employers identify candidates who are on track (or on a trajectory to match in the future) and manage long talent funnels in an automated way. Recruitment marketing is going to become extremely important….tight labor market...Martin what are you seeing with clients about their plans for next year? Companies will be dragged kicking and screaming into greater transparency in 2017, partially by younger generations demanding it, and increasingly because transparent companies show no ill effects from their openness. In addition, our proprietary data from the executive teams at 50 companies shows that executives (not necessarily HR) support a talent philosophy of near total transparency in communicating performance and potential. That same data shows that today most companies are moderately transparent at best. Last Question If you were building a piece of HR technology that doesn’t exist what problem would you choose to fix?
