It has advanced so much in recent years that, with it, our lives have transformed along the way. You only have to watch this video to see my point. Here; a baby, so intuitively in-sync with her iPad, the mere action of turning a page in a magazine is foreign.
Whilst technology was unsurprisingly, a key focus of the presentation, the most important takeaway was the idea that the human element is still vital. This is even more imperative in the recruiting world, where every day we are in contact with – wait for it, real people – and not iPads or smartphones (despite all the voicemails you’ve left over the years). Real people, who are looking to make changes in something that’s personal to them – their careers.
Undoubtedly, technology at PPS is essential to the work we do. Our tailor-made MORS system allows both us and our clients to have full control over the recruitment process and deliver a fair and consistent process for all candidates.
However, the vital part of our work doesn’t come from intricate coding. It comes from communication. It comes from the creativity, intuition, professionalism and empathy of our recruiters. Real, human communication and a supportive recruitment process that means that we get feedback like this from candidates:
“I’ve never come across a company so committed to getting the right staff that they walk you through every step of the recruitment process. Keep up the good work.”
“Every time I contacted the recruitment team, I felt welcomed and never felt an inconvenience – they were extremely helpful and friendly.”
Technology continues to evolve every day, and its role in today’s business cannot be denied. However, amidst these advances, it is even more of a necessity that we retain the human element in all we do.
