How Technology Unifies Recruitment And Retention

  • Although recruitment technology has been slow to catch on in higher education, those who use it find they can tie all aspects of employment— attracting, development, retention—into a complete process for employee management.
  • Recruitment technology is continually evolving and offers solutions that have not been previously available in higher education.

“Technology offers infinite potential for
almost every HR function.”

Talent management, like everything else, has changed over the past few decades, according to Dr. Edna Chun, chief learning officer at HigherEd Talent. “About two decades ago, we began to have access to systems that would enable us to market the institution as an employer of choice and transform all our paper-based operations into online documents and application forms, simplifying the process.” Even so, Chun says that using technology for talent management has been slower to catch on in higher education.
