By March 29, 2019Blog, Recruiting

Much has been said about the role of AI in recruitment. In the Infographic below we present the implications of AI for recruiters and organizations and for the second part, the benefits of AI for candidates in order to have a clear representation on how AI can positively affect your hiring strategy.

So, what do recruiters think about the implications of AI and how does it affect a recruiter’s work?

Statistics say that 56% of recruiters around the world say interviewing innovations due to AI are ‘very’ or ‘extremely’ important to the future of hiring. These can make a recruiter’s job easier by saving time and making its work more effectively.
39% of companies already use data to predict candidate success, while 60% of companies are planning on investing in AI-powered recruitment software, according to Harver’s report.

According to the same report, AI is most helpful in saving time (57%), removing human bias (43%), delivering best candidate matches (31%), saving money (30%).

According to a Yale University study, researchers asked 127 scientists to review a job application of identically qualified male and female students and found that the faculty members – both men and women – consistently scored a male candidate higher on a number of criteria such as competency and were more likely to hire the male. When it comes to the hiring bias, AI has proven to be a real success. For instance, tools can mask candidate gender from hiring managers and eliminate the bias. Bias can affect recruitment in your organization a lot. Dr. Pragya Agarwal mentions in a Forbes article that “Unconscious Bias can be a huge setback in creating a truly diverse and inclusive workplace”.

AI comes in hand in many ways and shapes, and we must be open to the change it brings and customize it to our needs in order to get the best out of it and hire right.
