Why did we do this research?
We’re passionate about data and tech, and we believe that using tech in the right way is the key for SMEs to create competitive advantage in talent acquisition. AI will create new ways to add value to the recruitment process and business strategy.
We wanted to get a better insight into the current state of AI, automation and talent intelligence in talent acquisition, and understand how it’s being adopted by talent professionals, particularly SMEs.
About our research
In June 2023, we carried out independent research with Arlington Research on 250 Heads of HR and Talent Acquisition and 50 SME CEOs in the UK for an insight into their attitudes and use of recruitment technology. Our findings focus on today’s hiring challenges and technology’s role in overcoming these challenges, attitudes to using technology and AI and how companies are adopting it. Interviewees also shared their fears on the risks of AI and its potential impact on the future of HR and Talent Acquisition Teams.
