Start Smart Podcast Ep:10 Moving to the Head of the Pack: TA Tech Outpaces HR Tech

Episode 10 • 6th September 2022 • Start Smart • Peter Weddle and Shelia Gray

Sponsored by Acquire ROI

Go to most HR conferences and you’ll quickly sense the prominent role that HR tech plays in modern talent acquisition. It’s not an inappropriate position, of course – HR tech products for compensation and benefits administration, human capital management, HRIS, and learning and development are definitely important and helpful, but there is a caveat. When it comes to cutting edge technologies, today’s HR tech can’t match the contribution TA tech is making to recruitment.

In this episode of the Start Smart podcast, we take a look at Gartner’s whitepaper entitled “Six Emerging HR Technology Trends” and its assessment of where those technologies are in their development and implementation. In every case – whether it’s Virtual assistants in HCM, Internal talent marketplace, Employee productivity monitoring, DEI in HCM, Blockchain in HCM, or AR/VR applications in corporate learning, the implementation of those technologies is behind their use in recruiting. And not by a little, but by as much as five to ten years, based on the products’ positioning in Gartner’s HCM Hype Cycle. So, tune in and take a listen to the show that’s all about the facts in talent acquisition.
