Importance of Hiring the Right Personality - and How AI Can Help

By Briah on Aug 6, 2021 4:07:46 PM

Have you ever been put into a team, where everyone's personalities seemed to collide, and no one could agree with each other and come to one solid conclusion? Have you ever been with a co-worker where your personalities just didn't seem to "click", or maybe you've felt like your own personality didn't quite match the work environment and culture? Whether you've experienced it first-hand or not, having the right employee's with the correctly aligned personality traits can make or break a company's success. Unfortunately for firms, not all recruiters have the ability of reading into someone's personality as well as they'd like to. Adding artificial intelligence systems into the human recruitment process has proven to allow recruiters to gain further insight into candidates, from deeper understanding of their personality to understanding the qualities and missions that resonate with them. With the aid of machine learning, recruiters during the hiring process can succeed to gain a deeper understanding through analysing the data and ultimately help them hire the personality that fits for the role within the company.

WHY Video is the New Resume (CV) for Candidates and Companies

By Elizabeth T. on Jun 24, 2021 10:00:14 AM

If you enjoyed 80’s pop music, you may remember the Buggles’ one-hit wonder with its lyrics:"Video killed the radio star/ Video killed the radio star”. The song speaks of how video in the late 20th century annihilated the industry of radio and broadcasting. Not too different from how video is, uh, killing the resume.

You may have come across a teeny, tiny challenge of this current pandemic: training employees remotely. You may need help in finding an employee training software that suits your needs.
