Why is recruitment automation important?
Automation in recruitment does not necessarily indicate that there will be a replacement of humans with tools that can readily complete the process. It instead only makes it easier for humans to complete the tasks.

Automation in such cases helps takes the burden away from the recruiters by applying AI and machine learning to routine activities that include right from outreach to an offer.

- Helps improve candidate tracking
