Session Title:  Hu(Man) vs. Ro(bot): Traditional Recruiting Meets the Technology Revolution

Join Cleveland SHRM’s Staffing Management Association on Friday, October 27th as we kick off our new program year, Hu(Man) vs. Ro(bot): Traditional Recruiting Meets the Technology Revolution. This year we’ll be exploring how technology is rapidly changing the options and outlook of talent acquisition.

In this first session Rob Sable, Founder and CTO of Employstream will facilitate a conversation around the following:

  • How do you make sense of all of the technological advances in talent acquisition and how do you take advantage of these advancements while keeping a focus on personal interactions?  
  • How do you find the balance between people and technology in your recruiting process?
  • Where can AI and automation be of value and when do you need to focus more on traditional recruitment practices?
  • How do you leverage technology to improve engagement with candidates?

Rob Sable is the Founder and CTO of EmployStream, a SaaS platform that is changing the way employers onboard and engage the talent that drives their business. He has 20 years of experience creating and supporting complex technology solutions for large companies. Prior to launching EmployStream in 2015, Rob was the CIO at Alliance Solutions Group, a family of specialized staffing and recruitment companies. In that role he directed technology and marketing operations for the company while helping it double in size, and in 2014 was named an OHTec CIO of the Year. Before joining Alliance in 2012, Rob served in a variety of leadership roles at Micros Systems in both product development and customer delivery. He helped to grow a retail software product line from pre-revenue, to thousands of installations around the world. Rob holds a Master of Science in Information Systems and a Bachelor of Business Administration degree from The George Washington University.

This activity has been submitted for review to HRCI and SHRM.
