Kim Pope, Executive Vice President of Global Client Solutions at WilsonHCG, spoke to Recruitment International about common myths within the talent RPO industry.
She talked about the myth that robots will replace recruiters.
Kim, who has more than 15 years of experience in talent acquisition and recruitment process outsourcing, said: “Every time a new form of technology is launched in the recruitment industry, there are claims it will replace jobs.”
"Technology has helped to make the role of a recruiter a lot more efficient and will continue to do so, but it will never replace recruiters. Technology is an enabler. It can male things better but there needs to be a seamless marriage between humans and tech in order to get the best results. One won't work without the other - they must work in harmony alongside each other," she added.
