Artificial Intelligence - the Secret to Effective Recruiting?

By Briah on Aug 12, 2021 7:18:06 PM

The talent acquisition process has been a long and ongoing struggle for HR professionals and recruiters, who always seem to have their hands full with CV's and resumes, and never quite enough time to sort through them all with enough thought. Screening resumes efficiently and fairly still remains the biggest challenge in recruiters in HR, with 52% of talent acquisition leaders saying the hardest part of recruitment is screening candidates from a large applicant pool. And the average recruiter spends 15 hours per week sourcing from a single role. So, you can imagine just how exhausting the recruiters job becomes, when they are continuously asked to reduce costs, reduce time, while still delivering consistent results and, of course, quality hires. When there are only 24 hours in a day, there are only so many candidates that a recruiter can get through before they start compromising on speed and quality of screening, I mean, let's be honest.

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.
