A Look Back: Highlights from 2022

As we excitedly anticipate the 2023 survey findings, here are some highlights from the state of the TA market just one year ago.

Here’s what was trending in 2022:

  • Applicant Tracking Systems, Job Boards and Job Aggregators, and Social Networks were the most popular forms of talent acquisition technology for both corporations and staffing agencies.
  • Robotic Process Automation platforms had a relatively small footprint but the businesses using them reported high satisfaction with the technology.
  • Candidate Relationship Management tools were thriving, while Candidate Communication & Bots were declining, potentially driven by leveraging such capabilities in the native ATS or CRM. 
  • Deployment Platforms, Analytics and Labor Market Intelligence, and Candidate Communications and Bots stood out among all sub-verticals for having few or no dissatisfied users and a substantial proportion of satisfied users.
  • Workforce planning and generating qualified applicants were reported as the two weakest areas of organizational capability, while quality of hire was reported as the strongest.
