Harini Muralidharan Sr. Director HR, Juniper Networks IEC, who was the session chair for the first panel of the day, incorporated the factors of success while she asked all the panellists about the latest trends and the use of technology in the recruitment process.


On this, Suchita Dutta, Executive Director, India Staffing Federation said that In this world of ‘Fastest Fingers First’ Recruitment Marketing is an essential transformation that should be the focus of every brand to attract the right employees. Today a brand reaches unconsciously to the potential employees through various outlets, of which ‘word of mouth’ and ‘social media’ are commonly known. The emphasis on engaging a potential starts much before the brand actually reaches, thus prime activity to be actioned by recruitment marketers today is to build the brand with passive/potential candidates prior to reaching them. 


Shweta Handa, who is a Transformation coach says that with technology like AI in the recruitment, three things have taken boost; Assistance, Automation, AND Autonomous learning. She thinks that the machine needs to have a lot of data before it shortlists and take out the best options out of thousands of resumes. She also feels that if the machine is learning from human, it can learn the biases too. 


Talking about learning , Seema Vijay Singh, CHRO Nestaway, puts her thoughts forward on how the talent out there is information hungry, and the corporation should make sure that it comes out in small bytes so the information is easily consumed. 


In conclusion to the discussion, Sumit Sabharwal, Head HR, Fujitsu says that the major problem in recruiting is the applicant and offer ratio. Using technology really makes it easier to strategize the needful and required talent.
