Menlo Park, CA, September 20, 2022 — Joveo, the global leader in programmatic recruitment advertising technology, published “The TA Tech Stack Dilemma” today, exploring talent acquisition (TA) leaders’ struggles to find the right candidates due to technology-related challenges.
Joveo’s latest report finds many TA leaders frustrated and struggling with their tech stacks – largely due to the fact that multiple point solutions are not properly integrated. An overwhelming 48% of respondents are using two to three solutions, while 40% conceded that they were actively juggling four or more. Unfortunately, additional solutions compound issues: siloed data, reporting redundancies, high costs, and suboptimal job-seeker experiences.
The report also found that while 64% of the respondents were less than satisfied with their tech stacks, many of them are apprehensive about shifting to a centralized platform, the most commonly attributed reasons being decentralized organizational structures, IT constraints, and ATS integration challenges.
“When you have 8–10 point solutions, reaching cohesive recruiting goals is a difficult – if not impossible – exercise. Integration challenges lead to so many exasperating bottlenecks,” said Doug Shonrock, Head of Candidate Experience & Engagement, Joveo. “Recruiters are caught between a rock and a hard place – while stacked solutions undoubtedly pose certain challenges, end-to-end platforms are not a quick fix. The trick lies in finding a centralized, intelligent, customizable, and agile platform. When you can be as hands-on or as hands-off as needed, you’re in control of meeting business requirements.”
The recruitment industry is one that has traditionally been in crisis mode – whether labor is in short supply or in abundance, finding the right talent for the right job is typically more a matter of luck than intelligent optimization. In the current market, given the scarcity of labor and low matching efficiency, the time has come to rethink the talent acquisition process. With a consolidated, data-informed approach, recruiters can finally look at effectively and efficiently matching the right people to the right jobs.
