Technology is changing the business landscape, lending it a fresh coat of paint with data-driven software applications, state-of-the-art robots, immersive and lifelike virtual and augmented reality and so much more.
2019 will not be any different from previous years when tech jumped from an evolutionary step to the other. To keep pace with this rapid transformation, HR has to change its role in organizations by becoming more strategic than administrative.
As new technologies emerge, organizations have to create new jobs and titles perhaps to stay abreast of the latest trends. In the end, everything boils down to how recruiting managers of these organizations go about with finding the right talent.
It becomes extremely essential for recruiting managers to devise hiring strategies that not only fill vacancies but keep the organization at the forefront of present-day technological innovations. Here are the ideal candidates that recruiting managers should look for in 2019 to match with the changing technological landscape:
- App developer
- AI/machine learning engineer
Machine learning and artificial intelligence (AI) are changing how businesses reach their prospects, deliver products and services, and provides customer support. These technologies have automated quite a few processes in organizations, but no organization can rule out the importance of a specialist who is well-versed with their nitty-gritty. As such, an AI or machine learning engineer is a crucial role that organizations have to create to embrace automation completely.
- Data scientist
The big-data is here, and everyone’s running behind it like hounds. In fact, every organization uses some sort of data to make decisions and take actions. For marketers, data is like a talisman which they would never want to forgo. But how will they use this data if there’s nobody to help them make sense of it? This is where organizations require a data scientist. A data scientist can be a great professional who can collect data, organize and analyze information and come up with valuable insights.
- Cybersecurity engineer
Last but certainly not the least, HR of the organization have to be aware of various security threats that come with digitalization. Security has always been a concern for organizations and consumers alike in the world of IoT. Recruiters have to become more focused on organizational safety in the online space and close loopholes that make their internal systems more vulnerable to threats. As such, the role of cybersecurity engineers becomes all the more crucial in protecting products and services against unauthorized intrusion.
The above are just a few of the many talents that recruiting managers have to keep an eye on in 2019. Just like always, their hiring strategies should help to provide a competitive edge to the organization and takes it a rung higher on the success ladder.
