The digital transformation will play the single most critical role in driving the recruitment industry to new success.   
 

Data-driven decisions

Within this environment, the most effective decision-making tool is data. The data goldmine that every recruitment business sits on - and often doesn’t fully realise the true value of - will help recruiters to raise their profile with their clients, turning them from a tactical resource hiring function into the strategic role of talent forecasting consultant.

Here, Volcanic's global sales director Matt Gallivan discusses how, as a forerunner to his presentation at RAE Birmingham in October.

Gathering, understanding and mapping the data correctly allows recruiters to identify trends at an extremely granular level. This type of modelling allows the prediction of future hiring requirements before the need becomes real - putting themselves one step ahead of the competition in securing the right talent for the next role.
 

Supported by technology

The latest end-to-end technology is fundamental to support this development. The effective collecting and reporting on this level of data, which then allows mapping and analysis of candidate behaviour, holds the key to the future of recruitment.
 

Data modelling brings the HRD to the boardroom

Having a handle on the numbers turns the recruiter into a strategist - the numbers discussions suddenly become interesting when they’re about data-driven pre-emptive strikes to populate the talent pipeline.
 

Data specialists are a rare breed

The next hire for any recruitment business must be a data scientist. Despite the many data sources, learnings and analytics available, most people don’t know how to interpret and present data properly. There’s no better time to source the right specialists to work the numbers.
