Forbes: Why the human touch is vital for finding the right candidate

Forbes post

Here is why the human touch remains critical to finding the right talent.


In this feature Forbes profile, South End Partners President and Founder Casey Huebsch talks about how the human touch remains critical to finding the right talent for the right opportunities

Despite economic uncertainty throughout 2023, the labor market remains tight. Many leaders our team speaks with say that finding the right talent for key opportunities continues to be a challenge. 

But what do they mean by the "right" talent? These are the candidates with more than just the technical expertise for the job or relevant previous work experience. They're talented individuals who align with an organization’s values and culture, identify growth opportunities and, of course, deliver results.

HR and recruiting teams have more tools at their disposal than ever before to source and screen candidates. For example, we've all been seeing the transformative impact of AI to speed up timelines and take over some of the time-consuming, repetitive tasks in the hiring processes. While our team is excited to embrace these changes and the benefits our industry may see as a result, it doesn't change the fact that the human touch remains critical to finding the right talent for the right opportunities.
