2017 Automation Nation Report: Recruiter Perspectives on an Automated Future

When most people think of automation, they think about the rise of robot overlords and downfall of American jobs  — at least the headlines and Hollywood movies make it seem that way. But we wanted to know what recruiters thought about the job automation hype and fears. Turns out, the folks who know hiring best are not so concerned.

The decision makers who discover, hire and cultivate our nation’s talent foresee a different future: one where machine learning and artificial technology work with us to automate our most tedious tasks — so we can focus on the human stuff like forging emotional connections and enabling human interactions. And when it comes to their own job, they’re already using automation to make things smoother, both for themselves and the job seeker.  

In our first-ever Automation Nation Report, we asked recruiters how automation is changing their day-to-day work, what the future of hiring in America looks like, and how they’re preparing for it. We learned recruiters are confident automation and AI will make their jobs easier and more efficient. We learned recruiters don’t believe machines are coming for our jobs anytime soon, and that robots will never be able to take over certain human responsibilities. And, we learned they’re excited to see how industries will evolve as automation is implemented throughout the country.
