Recorded Tuesday, June 22, 2021 | 12:00 PM ET


The people industry is seeing a big shift in focus from post-hire attention to pre-hire. Research now shows that getting the right people on board from the start is the best way for HR professionals to drive meaningful impact.


  • Hiring demands post-COVID are higher than ever, and new technologies like artificial intelligence, machine learning, and automation are rising to meet them. 
  • Most companies are dealing with tremendous hiring competition and losing great candidates if they’re not hiring fast enough. 
  • Gathering a large, top-of-funnel pool early in the hiring process gives you the best chance of getting the talent you need.
“You want to evaluate [with tech] before ever getting humans involved and spending a lot of time. Unless you can hire very quickly, you’re not going to be successful in this competitive market.”
