Technology in recruitment: “HR can be innovative, as well”


Technology in recruitment should not be something to fight against. A plea from Gilles Scheuren of for courage in HR to break new ground.

Technology still seems to be a term with negative connotations – at least in the recruiting world. A contradiction.
