INDIANAPOLIS – Today’s employers are building large and complex stacks of technology to improve their recruiting efficiency, timeliness and yield.  From applicant tracking systems to programmatic ad buying applications, from recruitment marketing platforms to chatbots and career sites, from job boards and social media sites to automated interviewing systems and more, companies large and small are increasingly investing in and relying on advanced technology for talent acquisition.

Despite this trend, however, there has been little detailed data collected on exactly what technologies are most prevalent among large, medium and small companies; how those technologies are acquired, implemented and used; and what new technologies are most likely to be added in the next 2-3 years.  As a result, it’s been extremely difficult to determine the current state of the corporate talent acquisition technology stack and what gaps in capability still need to be filled.

To address this problem, TAtech: The Association for Talent Acquisition Solutions and DirectEmployers Association are launching the Global Survey of the Corporate Talent Acquisition Technology Stack, sponsored by PandoLogic. This annual survey will provide a 360-degree view of the kinds of technologies currently being used by employers, how they are being used, the results of that use and the challenges that must be overcome to optimize those results. The survey is open to all employers and TA solution providers worldwide.

The survey is now available here for employers and here for solution providers.  Each survey is composed of 25 questions and takes less than 15 minutes to complete.  It’s a modest investment of time for the extraordinary insights participants will gain.  Those companies that complete the survey will receive an advance copy of the Final Report so they’ll be the first to get the findings and analysis.

In addition, and for DirectEmployers Members only, those Members that complete the survey will also get a $100 discount on attending any of TAtech’s five talent acquisition technology conferences in 2019. You’ll find a complete list here.
