To what extent can finding the right talent be automated?

Talent management, People & Process In my opinion, in general and especially as HR continues to be human, you can automate some parts of your process which are very mundane and which are very basic. But as you start interacting, talking to and assessing candidates, the people element is extremely needed. For a lot of people in this business your body language, your eye contact and the way you're going to react is all made note of. It tells me a lot about the person. It tells me a lot about their ability to look at things and get things done. and it has to be a very simple human-to-human conversation and you also make judgments. Another thing is that while you are assessing a candidate, the candidate is assessing you too. When you see something as a two-way assessment then, while I may have my needs, he also has an equal need to know who he’s going to work with. What does the company want? What are they trying to do? So you need to give a very fair chance for him to know about you and your problems.
