Why is human connection still meaningful?
1. Assessing culture fit
Even if a candidate possesses the exact skill set, certifications, tenure, and education to be successful in a role, they still may not be a good culture fit for the organization. Poor culture fit hires lead to an unproductive and distracting work environment, ultimately reducing efficiency and increasing employee turnover. Every team has a unique culture and finding employees that fit within the existing culture is just as important as finding employees with a desired skills set.
2. Human capital is the driving force of any business
As long as businesses continue to be supported and led by human beings, the human element of recruitment can never be replaced. Human interaction, communication, and teamwork are critical elements at the core of any business’s success; therefore, recruitment cannot be fully outsourced to automation and algorithms. Human capital is far too important of an investment to abandon tried and true recruitment methods and the judgment of leadership within a company.
