Combine the ongoing pandemic-fueled job crisis with approximately 11 million open job roles in the United States, organizations are struggling to find qualified candidates.

Recruiting is like joining a race. You need the fastest car with the best material to win the race. Getting that perfect candidate to work for you requires that companies move quickly and ensure they are using best practices to find quality candidates.

However, in talent acquisition, trading time to fill for clerical errors in workflows, approvals, and reviews is a surefire way to fail your recruiting operation. This is where intelligent automation can potentially change the way we work. Discover opportunities to scale and accelerate talent acquisition with automation while removing bias from the recruitment process.

Join Leslie Chau and Angela Hood to discuss how HR professionals can use intelligent automation to speed up sourcing and create exceptional candidate experiences, helping recruiters find the right candidate fast.
