MIAMIMIAMI–(BUSINESS WIRE)–As the economy slows, organizations are paying closer attention to cost areas. Talent acquisition vendors are responding by investing in functionality that delivers the greatest value. Nucleus expects consolidation in the market as large vendors advance while niche players struggle for business survival.

“Even with changes in the work landscape, we’ve found organizations are still continuing to prioritize talent acquisition,” said Research Manager Evelyn McMullen. “This highlights the importance of investing in technology that adds efficiency to sourcing, recruiting, candidate management, hiring, and onboarding processes.”

Nucleus expects an overall increase in automated sourcing, recruitment marketing, candidate search, skill matching, and candidate assessment functionality.
