The field of Artificial Intelligence is a fast-evolving one, gaining influence in many spheres of human existence. It is the intelligence demonstrated by machines which have over time, proved its accuracy and dependability. This intelligence includes; decision making, visual and vocal recognition, and translation, – among other things. One aspect that is being influenced by Artificial Intelligence is that of recruiting people for jobs.
The reason behind the incorporation of A.I. into this field is not far-fetched, as it helps to reduce the workload of employees by making the mundane tasks of hiring and recruiting easier. It is expected to be a faster and more efficient alternative for companies to employ as a part of their Human Resource (HR) efforts. Contained in this article are some expected impacts of Artificial Intelligence in the future of recruiting.
- Improved Efficiency and Experience
By optimizing AI, companies will be able to scan resumes, schedule interviews, and send routine emails, ultimately improving their efficiency and effectiveness. Also, via AI, candidate experience will be improved by making it more personalized and sincere and enabling the formation of real relationships between candidates and companies.
- Faster and Smarter Hiring Process
As we all know, computers are built to perform tasks faster and more accurately. With the ability of bots to scan and identify the top resumes in a batch of applicants, the process of scheduling will be automated and predictive analytics will be able to capture quantitative and qualitative data to ensure a suitable and appropriate match.
- Ability to predict employee success
AI is able to establish the past achievements of successful employees and search for candidates with similar backgrounds to those of such workers. This way, it can predict the success rate of potential incoming employees.
- Minimization of Biases in Hiring
By developing algorithms that are fair and ethical for use in the hiring process, biases such as; gender, age, and race can be well minimized.
- Interview Automation
By capitalizing on the automation AI offers via its facial recognition tool that can record and determine emotion from facial expressions, companies will be able to handle screening processes without the physical presence of humans.
- Ease and Speed of scheduling meetings with candidates
With the availability of AI software that can automate appointment setting by performing simple tasks such as; looking at your calendar, asking a few basic questions and offering viable options to the candidate, recruiters will be able to quickly and easily schedule meetings with them.
- Clarification of Expectations
AI is built with an objective algorithm which will give very clear and precise expectation. By using it, time and resources will be saved and one can be quite assured of accuracy. We must, however, keep in mind that AI only simplifies the process, leaving the completion and verification to we humans.
- Inability to identify the most suitable person for the job
Understanding that Artificial Intelligence at its best, works based on computer programs written by humans, we should realize that it cannot identify the best person fit for a job.
Human behavior varies across different individuals, and AI might be making logical decisions where intuitions by humans are required.
