The Great Resignation: How AI Can Help Reduce Employee Churn

By Anna Schosser on Apr 26, 2022 1:00:00 AM

It’s been two and a half years since Covid-19 has shifted the way in which humans operate and maneuver in their daily lives. Since Covid-19 has caused a heave of lifestyle changes, the relationship that people have towards their work-life has drastically shifted as well. From the growing cases of dissatisfying working conditions, uninspiring jobs, and bad bosses, the number of resignations has increased, and the desire to seek out a better deal from companies has grown. Thus, “The Great Resignation” has been coined to describe the pattern of employees voluntarily leaving their employment during the pandemic. However, AI has stepped up its game as people have stepped down and is becoming the solution to bring motivation back into employees and firms that have lost the majority of their people.

Why Personality Is the Key Ingredient For Success ft. Volodymyr Zelensky

By Anna Schosser on Mar 28, 2022 3:10:00 PM

Throughout the years, resumes, references, and interviews have been the standard selection pieces for the hiring process. Resumes provide the hiring team with an overview of a candidate’s work history, references provide insight into their work ethic, and an interview gives a sense of an applicant’s communication style. However, in recent years, recruiters require more than a well-written CV and a confident attitude in face-to-face interviews to determine whether an applicant is an appropriate fit for a role. As the recruitment process has developed, it is shifting its focus onto other aspects when considering a candidate: personality.

By highlighting personality during the recruitment process, not only do you gain deep insight into a candidate's potential, but it also eliminates bias and speeds up the recruitment process in an effective manner. Therefore, as you welcome your new team member, their valued traits, and behavior will be sure to benefit the work environment and enhance the further success of the company.

Hiring Post-COVID: 4 Tips to Successful Hiring Post-COVID

By Briah on Mar 22, 2022 7:22:54 PM

Economies around the world are coming up for air as sanctions and lockdowns have been loosened and vaccine roll-outs continue. People are getting ready to shear off their pandemic grown locks and dust off their suits as offices begin to open their doors back up.

But the recovery hasn't quite been even, and the long term effects are certainly being felt.

Human resource management teams and hiring experts around the world have scrambled to adjust to new norms after experiencing the most significant driving force for change in the past few decades. Millions of jobs have been lost, yet recruiters are still struggling to fill open positions with the right employees. In fact, a recent jobs report from the U.S. suggested a loss of momentum in the pandemic recovery — the economy added just 266,000 jobs in April, a quarter of what was expected. In nations where inequality and job opportunities were already scarce, such as Latin America and the Caribbean, the pandemic has underscored the pre-existing inequalities in the region, where the most vulnerable and poorest groups have been disproportionately affected.

Despite the recent job gains, the U.S. labour market is still 6.8 million jobs short of pre-pandemic levels.

So how can companies adjust to post-pandemic ways in terms of the recruitment process? How can recruiters widen their applicant pool and hire the right matches for the company's culture?

How I Got My Job Thanks to AI

By Anna Schosser on Feb 15, 2022 11:49:00 AM

Gone are the days when searching for the right talent for a job position was a longwinded, and tiresome task. Statistics show that 82% of HR personnel struggle with adoption challenges where there was not enough access to the right information about the candidates. This results in difficulties finding the right applicants or failing to retain the high performers. Along with the constant pressure that companies face in scouting for top talents to up-skill their workforce, AI comes to the rescue in helping to reduce up to 40% of a recruiter’s time spent on repetitive and mundane tasks such as interview scheduling or automating the application process that screen resumes. Instead, the time saved can be spent improving the candidate experience and building relationships. By getting to know the candidates deeper than what their resume has to offer, HR is taking into consideration the factors that are important to employees.

By Elizabeth T. on Oct 28, 2021 4:11:34 PM

Part of building an effective sales team is understanding your starting point. What's the best way to begin? Through measuring.
