Krasnodar, 28 March – Yug Times. The demand for IT experts is constantly growing in line with the remuneration offered to them, because the industry keeps feeling scarcity of highly qualified personnel.
Following HR-Revolution, a conference for employers organized last week in Krasnodar by HeadHunter, Irina Veretennikova, the company’s South Region Manager, speaks about artificial intellect, transformations in staff recruitment sphere, and professionals of the future.
Q.: Why does HeadHunter regularly hold suchlike conferences?
A.: We share our experience, most advanced technologies and new services and forecasts. A revolution in the HR-sphere has already begun, and it is much easier to face any changes fully armed with a thorough knowledge. Changes are inevitable; and we must be prepared for them.
Q.: Do you expect significant transformations in this sector?
A.: Our world is changing rapidly - and the labour market is getting upgraded too: every day, artificial intellect more and more asserts itself.
Robotization and automation are also transforming the HR processes. Many leading recruiting companies have begun to use the services of chat-bots, first of all to recruit the personnel for mass positions and hold retirement interviews.
Q.: How will broad introduction of chat-bots affect live recruiters?
A.: To remain competitive in their profession and comply with demands of the times, recruiters will have to acquire new knowledge and skills in analytics, forecasting and marketing.
Q.: What practical skills are required to let a worker remain competitive at the labour market?
A.: Bearing in mind that quite soon we will have to compete with machines as well as human rivals, I can say that the so-called ‘universal’ professionals with knowledge and experience in many different fields will become especially valuable and sought-after. The employers will need workers that can independently generate new ideas and make them come true - not just fulfil some routine sets of activities.
