How Will Increased Transparency Affect the Future of Recruiting?

Anytime in history that there’s been an increase in transparency and knowledge sharing among human beings has led to an increased level of democracy and freedom. I think what makes us all pretty uncomfortable right now is that we are witnessing a very rapid increase in transparency.

And if we use it properly, then we have a pretty historical opportunity to change the way recruiting is done. I look at it as, you know, “The Arab Spring of Recruiting.” What happens when you put full transparency on a population that doesn’t have it? And so my prediction for 10 years – or hopefully sooner than that – is that we will have used that transparency and this social connection to bring recruiting back to its root as a social activity.
