Why has a new urgency returned to HRtech?

"Recruiting highly qualified employees is becoming increasingly difficult in almost all industries. Traditional methods no longer bring the desired success and this is particularly the case for high-growth companies who have to identify and address promising employees very early on. The rapid development in the HRtech sector offers these companies the tools they need. 

Using technologies such as machine learning and artificial intelligence helps them find the ideal candidates in social networks before they even think about changing jobs. As long as the economy continues to run at full speed, this trend will continue to strengthen and smart HRtech companies can and will benefit from it.
