We cannot undervalue the role of AI sourcing, talent communities, digital interviewing, chatbots, etc. Those who ignore the benefits of technology in their recruitment strategy will face significant headwinds.

At the same time, we need to be careful not to ignore the human element. There are roles and functions that still require the human touch. We don’t live in our Star Wars universe where machines can do everything people can.

It is “both and” not “either or,” and a wise strategist thoughtfully considers the role of technology and the need for human touch when crafting their solution.
