Automation with a Human Touch: Navigating the Changing World of Candidate Engagement - Panel

Back Bay D, 2nd Floor

Automation is ubiquitous, and for the first time, we’re beginning to see it serve as the foundation for enterprise-level artificial intelligence use cases that could fundamentally change the staffing industry as we know it. The more practical use case? Engaging with hard-to-find and hard-to-entice talent. How can staffing firms leverage automation and potentially AI to better connect with passive or underutilized talent? Moderated by Bullhorn’s Gordon Burnes, this session will focus on recruiting firm branding and digital marketing strategies to engage with untapped talent pools.
