Reflecting on the 2015 HR Tech Conference in Las Vegas, Nevada made us want to revisit two trends that Megan Biro highlighted in her Forbes article earlier this month.

 

1) Go for today, later, and even later than that

 

Trend one requires presenting a variety of hard questions to assess where your company is and where improvement may be needed. Consumer surveys such as the one highlighted here show that mobile usage is on the rise. Additionally, job seekers continue to use their mobile devices to find and apply to new openings.  As mobile continues to exceed projected growth, texting has emerged as frontrunner due to its simplicity.  There are a variety of complications that come along with recruiters using personal cell phones that HR teams need to consider as mobile usage become more popular. Centralized texting platforms are growing into a must-have technology for HR teams yielding higher response rates and lower response times while staying compliant.   

 

2) Don’t miss the future

 

Larry Page, the founder of Google, said it best when he stated “Lots of companies don’t succeed over time. What do they fundamentally do wrong? They usually miss the future.” Investing in new technologies for the future is vital to the success of every company and the sooner recruiters start taking candidate engagement mobile the more prepared they will be to excel at it in the future. New technologies take time to sink into company culture, but as they say the trends of today predict the behaviors of tomorrow.

Predicting the future is never an easy business. The only thing that projectionists can rely on are past trends and educated guesses. Even though they may not be perfect, projections can still be helpful in a lot of fields. One place to take a look at them is in mobile trends.

Those who are afraid that human beings are already starting to look more and more like robots should worry some more. According to itproportal.com, wearable technology is going to start to make more of an inroad,

Wearable tech will start to take off as more useful solutions are brought into the field. We’re working on wearable solutions for the market having already passed the proof of concept stage.

 

Pretty soon you’ll be able to walk onto transport, into an event or pay for your lunch with a swipe of your wrist. Apple entering the fray will drive adoption too.

Already mobile phone users feel as though things are designed exactly for them. This trend is only going to increase according to most projections. More is going to be known about how people use their smartphones. This extra information will help application designers and others create tools that are more useful and personalized. Perhaps everyone will be glued to their smartphones even more than they already are!

If you are a recruiter then you know that getting in touch with the prospective employee or applicant is paramount to your business. You are also aware that most resumes and social media include a cell phone number for direct contact. Cell phones and text messages are becoming more desirable as a contact point since most owners keep their phone within arms reach.
