Episode 32: Technology Over Headcount - The Solution to Staffing Inefficiency with Chris Wirt

On this episode of the You Own The Experience podcast, Robert Mann and Lauren B. Jones chat about data quality in your ATS/CRM and how valuable it is for your business. Later they are joined by Chris Wirt, Sales Director at DaXtra Technologies, an organization that has spent the last 20 years using tech to streamline recruiting teams.

Here Mann, Jones, and Wirt discuss the current disconnect in the job market, where 9.1 million people are unemployed yet 8 million jobs remain open. They talk about the need for staffing and recruiting firms to step up and bridge that gap, but they also advise that the industry can’t solve this problem through traditional means, like additional recruiter headcount. This is an issue that demands a modern, technological solution.

The crew also chats about:

  • Turning the candidate search from external to internal
  • How to ensure AI doesn’t amplify unconscious bias
  • Why the traditional job post is essentially a waste of time
  • The argument for trading resumes for digital profiles
