A Staffing Technology Ecosystem
Thanks to surveys of its membership, including company executives, ASA knows that finding and employing quality talent and staying ahead of technology solutions that can enhance operations are among the top up-at-night issues for its members and the industry overall.
ASA has enlisted Talent Tech Labs, a New York City-based organization that engages in investigation, research, validation, and acceleration of talent acquisition technology. Using its current work focused on technology solutions for the industry, the association partnered with TTL to produce the Essential Elements of Staffing Technology—a first-of-its-kind discovery and discussion tool to help industry leaders better understand technology’s role in staffing, present and future.
Source, Engage, Select, Hire, and Grow Talent
This tool aims to identify emerging technologies that will affect staffing and recruiting; innovation that will propel positive advances in the business; and competitive threats as they emerge and take shape. It features a unique taxonomy that aims to organize the information so that it’s easy to determine specific offerings and functionalities across the staffing and recruiting continuum, which features five stages: source, engage, select, hire, and grow.
This first stage of the staffing and recruiting continuum includes these verticals:
