Stockholm’s Syndrome and Recruitment Technology

Increasingly I keep getting the feeling that organizations feel they are being held captive by the existing systems and technologies that they are using for recruiting.  Whether it’s silence that follows whenever a presenter asks if conference goers “like their ATS” or the increased questions we get from organizations on the technology they should be using, I feel like many organizations are not all together thrilled with their existing…
