Today marks the culmination of our efforts as we prepare to launch our product. Humbird AI is now live and available for everyone to use. While we know that this is just the beginning of our journey, it is incredibly rewarding to see our hard work pay off as we witness Humbird AI in action and receive valuable feedback from our beta users.
It's hard to believe that I left my comfortable and well-compensated job at Zoho to embark on the journey of becoming a co-founder of Humbird AI. The decision was not an easy one, but I was fortunate to have like-minded and passionate co-founders by my side who nudged me to take the plunge and join them on this crazy but rewarding adventure.
Our journey: Navigating the ups and downs of recruitment
During more than a decade working as product managers at Zoho and Lowes, team building was an important aspect of our role. We worked with a variety of teams, including engineering, product management, customer support, marketing, and sales, and frequently participated in the hiring process. And, I must say it was one aspect of the job that I didn't quite enjoy. Even though we had an established ATS in place, finding the right candidate could take over a month. The hiring process was challenging at every stage, as it involved a lot of manual tasks and frequent coordination with HR to fill the open positions. If you are an HR, I am sure you know what I am talking about. While we tried implementing various communication systems to streamline the recruitment process, we found that although it did help speed up the process to some extent, there were still some communication gaps between the candidates and HR.
Realizing the challenges we were facing, we decided to talk to our friends in the HR department and dig deeper. We learned that companies were now setting up Talent Acquisition (TA) teams with hierarchical structures to find the best-fit candidates for various roles. The traditional way of hiring was no longer sufficient, and TA teams were responsible for building a quality talent pipeline by implementing both inbound and outbound strategies to find the best-fit candidates faster.
Not only were hiring teams facing new and complex challenges, we observed that the job market had shifted towards a candidate-driven landscape, where candidates hold more power and influence in the hiring process than ever before. And, companies must compete to attract and retain top talent. It's no longer enough to simply post a job opening and wait for applications to roll in. Instead, companies must take an active approach and focus on building strong employer brands, providing a positive candidate experience throughout the recruitment process, and offering competitive compensation and benefits packages.
That’s exactly the point where we knew what we are going to build—a next-gen Talent CRM platform to make the talent acquisition team's job easier and address all the unique challenges that they face every day.
