Once again we are live from HR Tech for the latest episode of Hiring On All Cylinders, where industry veteran and voice behind the recruiting podcast RecTech Media, Chris Russell, joins our hosts Sean Simerly and Entelo CMO Mike Trigg.

Having spent time on both sides of the trade show booth, Russell has a unique perspective on recruiting technology. He’s followed the evolution of technologies from online job boards and professional networking sites, to ATS platforms, and most recently recruiting automation. And he’s witnessed an industry bogged down by paperwork and spreadsheets transform into a proactive and data driven business function.

As more of these smart tools continue to hit the market, there is a huge opportunity in front of recruiters to completely shed their administrative tasks and evolve into strategic business partners. However, in Russell’s lengthy tenure, there has always been a general hesitancy towards technology adoption. One lap around the HR Tech show floor and you’ll hear the phrases ‘artificial intelligence’ and ‘automation’ littered into almost every conversation – met in equal parts excitement and doubt.

So how can our listeners push past the noise, identify the tools that will move their talent initiatives forward, and encourage organizational buy-in and adoption? Hit the play button to find out!
