5 HR Resources Recruiters Must Try in 2020

Posted 10-Feb -2020

By 2023, the human capital management market is expected to reach $22.2 billion, which was valued at $13 billion in 2016, growing at a CAGR of 7.8% from 2017 to 2023.

In the wake of digital advancements (such as automation and AI) and cultural movements (such as me too), the hiring industry experienced an exciting renascence in the past five years. With the lightning speed of the technology, HR has evolved considerably, and there’s a myriad of tools and content available over the web for recruitment practices. It’s apparent to feel swamped by all the information, and recruiters can’t reckon on the grapevine to keep abreast of the current trends.

However, the best thing about social media is that you can examine the plethora of resources and identify the ones that fit your industry and business standards. Listed below are five quality resources that are exciting, engaging, and must-have for every hiring professional:
