The Recruitment Technology Curve

Technology AdoptionDo you consider yourself to be tech savvy or do you watch as other around you tap away on their touch screens while you tap away on your mobile from 1999?

Whether you consider yourself to be a tech innovator or a 'laggard', it's important to realise the value of technology in the recruitment industry.

Recruiting Blogs has explored the importance of being innovative in the recruitment space and much of the advice centres around being the first to adopt technology.

The curve shows the trends that happen when a new technology is introduced. A small number (2.5%) of the population adopts it first, followed by early adopters (13.5% of the population), the early majority (34%), the late majority (34%) and finally, the laggards that account for 16% of the population.

The article goes on to discuss Geoffrey Moore's Chasm ideology that basically says those who adopt the technology last are the skeptics.

The same principles apply in the recruitment world too. Those companies that have forward-thinking down to a T will adopt new technologies first and be more successful than their competitors, but those who are skeptical about the improvements technology will make are left behind in the dust.

The moral of the story? Adopt technology before it's too late!
