How IoT is Redefining Hiring Practices and Transforming HR Workflows

HR managers are embracing the Internet of Things (IoT) to revolutionize their hiring practices and streamlining the workflows. By integrating the new technology, recruiters can automate tasks, enhance the candidate experience and speed up the recruitment process as well.


Traditionally, recruiters spend much of their time on manual tasks such as reviewing resumes and scheduling interviews. These tasks usually lead to delays and errors. IoT solutions are changing this landscape by automating and integrating HR systems. Liz Li, Chief Product Officer at Velocity Global, explains how their IoT-based technologies, like applicant tracking systems and HR information systems, eliminate manual data entry. With this, the information flows seamlessly between systems.

IoT also helps recruiters predict talent needs. Andrea Henderson, a partner at DHR Global, emphasizes how IoT data, combined with analytics and machine learning, allows recruiters to forecast future talent requirements accurately. The new system has been seen beneficial in healthcare. IoT data offers real-time insights into patient care and workforce activities in the sector.

Cliff Jurkiewicz, VP of Global Strategy at Phenom, envisions a future where IoT eliminates the need for traditional resumes. He suggests that IoT data can create profiles based on the publicly available information of an individual. This makes candidate sourcing precise and instant. Skills assessment will expand to include behavior and cultural fit as well.

IoT enhances information sharing and scheduling in recruitment. Robert Kaskel, Chief People Officer at Checkr, highlights how IoT-enabled recruitment platforms allow recruiters to access candidate data from anywhere. The system eliminates missed messages and duplicate efforts. David Janovic, CEO of RJ Living, explains how IoT simplifies interview scheduling as it allow candidates to connect to the calendars and book slots of recruiters easily.
