The hiring process has evolved as companies started to integrate artificial intelligence solutions into their recruitment process. Let’s learn about how AI is changing the human resources department.

The process of identifying the correlations among a great deal of data by leveraging machine learning algorithms, and predicting the possible outcome to empower the decision-making process is at the heart of AI. Businesses can save a lot of time and energy in finding the right resource for the company through the use of artificial intelligence.

Using AI to automate and optimize the recruiting workflow has allowed recruiters to focus their time more on value-adding tasks. Integrating AI into recruitment can increase efficiency in finding the right talent. Companies using AI in recruitment often analyze big data of CVs to better understand their candidates and create better job matches based on factors like skills and experiences. This way, AI can speed up the talent selection process while ensuring better fits.

AI is also used to provide real-time feedback to candidates. Once the algorithm decides the candidate does not fit the company, it can instantly generate and send result with appropriate feedback. This way, the recruiters’ workload can be reduced and the candidates’ frustration can also be prevented.

In addition, the adoption of artificial intelligence can also reduce biased recruitment practices. AI focuses solely on the skills and experience of candidates, which can lead to less biased decisions by the company. However, all AI are merely programs created by humans. As in the case of Amazon where the software was built to discriminate against women, machines can also learn the implicit biases of humans and amplify in decisions they make.

Artificial intelligence can improve recruiting efficiency and effectiveness, but we must keep in mind that it has to be carefully crafted to perform as planned. The key to the future of recruiting is combining both artificial and human intelligence.
