Traditional recruiting isn’t going to cut it anymore. Entelo customers and other recruiting automation experts know that in order to get ahead, employers must think outside the box when it comes to engaging top talent. Today we’re happy to share our latest resource to help recruiters get ahead of the competition and hire more efficiently.
The human brain is built for bias. To efficiently process a large amount of information quickly, the brain creates categories and ties personal associations and perceptions to those categories. This process happens subconsciously and usually without malintent.
Left unchecked, unconscious bias can have negative implications when it comes to the way companies hire. Even with the best intentions and the most experienced recruiters, unconscious bias can creep into the sourcing process, resulting in certain candidates gaining an advantage in the hiring process for the wrong reasons and thwarting opportunities for other candidates that may be the right fit for the job.
When initiating a sourcing project, what is the first thing recruiters do? Often the search begins with a long boolean string, jam packed with keywords. Recruiters start this way because it helps to identify potential prospects, however this approach is fundamentally flawed. Keyword searches only identify candidates that have added those keywords to their resumes and professional profiles themselves. Therefore, this system gives preferential treatment to individuals who feel comfortable listing additional keywords and thwarts opportunities for those that are more humble. In fact, men tend to have 16% more keywords on their resume compared to women for the same role and the same experience, according to Entelo data.
“The recruiting playbook has fundamentally shifted. There is a generation of recruiters that needs to change and evolve,” NN Srinivas, senior director, head of management recruitment for the America's at Cognizant said.
NN and Ladonna Tucker, head of global talent acquisition digital strategy & transformation at Schneider Electric joined us on the Hiring on All Cylinders podcast to share their thoughts on the ways talent acquisition is changing and how to best prepare and adapt to this new world.

Last month, we shared many of the steps Entelo has taken to ensure user privacy and the security of all data within our network. Today, we are delighted to announce another step forward. Entelo has earned its Service Organization Control (SOC) 2 Type II certification. This designation was awarded based on our demonstrated ability to safeguard customer data over time and for the operating effectiveness of the controls Entelo put into place. It builds on our existing SOC 2 Type I certification.
The number of Americans filing for unemployment benefits hasn’t been this low in nearly 45 years, according to the February 2018 Labor Department report. As the labor market tightens, expectations of faster wage growth are on the rise and the competition for talent stiffens. Recruiters like you need every tool at your disposal to navigate this highly competitive terrain, and today, those tools are more complicated than ever before. As the HR technology market grows, and more players join the space, we’re seeing a new category emerge called, “recruiting automation.”
Have you ever found a great-fit candidate and written them a thoughtful message, only to get hit with a “not interested” or worse yet, complete silence? Unless you have recruiting superpowers, I'd venture to say you have. In fact, as passive talent becomes increasingly inundated with recruiting outreach, response rates have only continued to plummet.
To remedy this, the Entelo team went to work to determine the tactics and strategy behind the most successful recruiting emails, using the open, click and reply rates of hundreds of thousands of emails sent through Entelo Track. After crunching millions of data points, we’ve determined the do’s and don’t's of recruiting emails. Take a look:
Buzzwords like ‘artificial intelligence’ and ‘automation’ get thrown around in recruiting, but there’s a lot of confusion about the role these technologies play in the recruiting process and how they will shape the future of hiring. To learn more about the emerging trend of recruiting automation and Entelo’s upcoming Recruiting Automation Summit, we caught up with Entelo CMO, Mike Trigg and Head of PR, Lisa Holden on this week’s episode of Hiring on All Cylinders.
Talent acquisition leaders have navigated many changes to this industry, just throughout the past decade – and there are plenty of HR conferences and events to prove it. But despite all the noise around talent acquisition, hiring and the talent wars, no single event focuses on the nexus of artificial intelligence, machine learning and recruiting.
As job boards, social recruiting, recruitment marketing and other buzzwords become best practices, find out what the next trends are before they become mainstream by registering for the Recruiting Automation Summit today.
