Welcome to the Future of Work Series at HR Tech World in San Francisco. I'm your host Peter Clayton. Joining me is Bob Schultz, General Manager, Talent Management Solutions, Kenexa Business at IBM. Today we're going to focus on How cognitive computing is transforming the talent acquisition and HR functions within organizations, and learn about the latest advancements from Watson Talent.

I've been covering this space for a little over a decade, so I've seen the tremendous amount of consolidation in this space, and Kenexa is no exception. Prior to IBM acquiring the company in 2012, it had grown tremendously though a series of acquisitions, including BrassRing. So first off, we get Bob's perspective on what all of this acquisition in HR technology means.

Do employers know there's a problem identifying the source of candidates?

Joining Peter Clayton today on Totalpicture's HR and TA Technology Channel is Andy Hibel, Co-Founder and Chief Operating Officer of a company which owns and operates academic career and employment websites, HigherEdJobs.

Andy led a session at the recent #TAtechChicago Congress to discuss the source of hire, an important issue for job board operators and recruiters, and an issue with as many opinions as complexities. 

  • Why is this still and issue? Why is it important?  What should be done about it?

A little background... Last year, HigherEdJobs listed nearly 215,000 jobs at 5,394 colleges and universities, with an average of over 1,400,000 unique visits per month. Virtually all of these jobs come directly from the school to HigherEdJobs.

What to Consider When Choosing an Applicant Tracking System


Susan Vitale, CMO of iCIMS, Looks at the HRIS Marketplace, the Surveys, the Hype, and What Matters When Evaluating an ATS

Published on April 13 2017

We are back talking about Applicant Tracking Systems - ATS. Why? Because love them or hate them, they are a key piece to the talent acquisition, recruiting and HR puzzle. Applicant tracking systems not only impact talent acquisition, recruiters, HR, employer branding, and hiring; but job candidates as well.

If you are applying for a job on a company website with more than 100 employees, chances are very, very good you're using an applicant tracking system to do so.

We are also going to talk about surveys regarding ATS' today. As with most things involving choice architecture, you really need to look at the methodology, the data sets, and read between the lines. There are many surveys done each year ranking applicant tracking systems: the 'best' systems, the fastest growing, the largest in terms of market share, the most popular, etc. You need to ask yourself, "who conducted this survey, and what is their objective?" More on this later.

Two years ago, Josh Bersin wrote about the significant growth and importance of the $400+ billion HR marketplace in the U.S., estimating that between 5-8 percent is spent on tools and technology. So we're looking at something close to a $3 billion industry here in the U.S. As Josh points out, companies who invest heavily in their HR departments and systems, see a significant return in terms of happy employees, better retention, better engagement, less turnover, and a much stronger employer brand. Making it far easier to hire high-potential candidates.


Ranking the Top Applicant Tracking Systems


Rob Kelly, CEO of Ongig, Shares the Methodology His Company Used to Rank the Top 70 ATS's

Published on March 25 2017

I met Rob Kelly, CEO of Ongig through Jonathan Duarte. In speaking with Rob, I quickly realized I had used his company's ATS Survey in an interview with Bill Kutik, discussing two of the better-known Applicant Tracking Systems, Taleo and iCIMS.

Ongig first began reporting on top applicant tracking systems in September 2014 and after 30,000 people read one post on it, they decided they had found pretty good Internet flypaper, and updated it for 2016.

Part of my conversation with Bill (and you'll find a link to that podcast in the sidebar), had to do with the fact that there are numerous surveys out there ranking ATS market share - and they are remarkably different in their results.

So I asked Rob to join us for an HR Technology Channel podcast on TotalPicture Radio to discuss Ongig's methodology in creating their list of the Top 70 Applicant Tracking Systems used by Companies.
