Innovative products or innovative ways of working are usually successful by creating obsolescence. That is, leaving old products or processes obsolete.
But this is not the case of recruitment. New recruiting techniques are introduced, as well as searching for candidates, interviewing them or working as a team, but never leaving behind. How can you be wasting so much time at this point?
And you will tell me that these changes are for young people or other more modern sectors, that as a recruiter you work very well the way you are doing it, that you have always worked like this, that it has worked for you and that now you do not have time to learn.
If we all had this mentality, I do not want to know where we would be. How can it be that in 2014, when you can do almost everything from the mobile, from opening the door of your house remotely, pay, or have any document or knowledge in a matter of seconds, still use paper?
How can we work with paper and at the same time as a team? Sometimes I throw my hands to my head when some recruiters tell me that all the interview notes are written on paper, then passed on in a word and sent to their colleagues. 10 years ago, you did the same. Do not you think there are better ways to work? And when I say better, I mean faster, cheaper, more efficient, and without headaches to know where the information is.
