Globally, more than 250 million people search for jobs, post resumes, and research companies on Indeed each month. The recruitment process is essential for efficient company growth and Humi is helping to solve cross-customer recruitment problems through technology. There is a huge demand for talent right now, STEM jobs make up 34 percent of the current Canadian workforce and roughly, over 1.8 million Canadians work in the digital economy, predicted to grow to two million by 2023. As Canada’s leading HR tech platform, it’s Humi’s top priority to partner with companies like Indeed to provide efficient services and create a seamless experience. Employers can find talent through Indeed and applicants are automatically fed into Humi, where they can then hire and manage their employee data in one system. Humi unifies all applicant tracking by allowing its customers to create a job board, add hiring managers, and share posts to Indeed, directly from the platform. The need for improved recruitment efficiency and effectiveness is not specific to one industry, it is a broad market need that has shown itself clearly in the current talent war. Technology has, and will continue to, revolutionize the process, improving the experience for both the employer and candidate.
