The elephant in the room? When recruitment is reduced to a dull-as-dishwater data-driven function, it’s corporate hoopla. Maybe things should change, but people feel in control with familiar steps and instructions. It’s safe. It’s how it’s always been done.
That’s the danger of process. Rules trump outcomes. Success is ticking the list, not the big picture. In the short term, it’s controlled and formulaic; in the long term, it’s a blocker on a growth mindset, disrupting, and beating competitors.
Put yourself in our shoes (blue suede, optional). Would you want to answer the same old questions ordained by a model that, in many cases, has already failed? We don’t. If we did, we wouldn’t be providing a solution; we’d be reinforcing the problem.
