Impacts of Artificial Intelligence on Employee Recruitment
Artificial Intelligence will influence employee recruitment in IT, creative services, and life science fields by getting rid of the human bias, identifying the most qualified candidates, and improving the hiring experience for organizations and candidates. Glider, for example, is an AI recruitment solution that uses algorithms to evaluate the skills of candidates. Google also implemented qDroid, which is an AI recruitment tool that provides the most appropriate interview questions for its candidates.
GETTING RID OF THE HUMAN BIAS
Human bias negatively affects recruitment because most people make uninformed choices and stereotype based on ethnicity and gender. The stereotypes can result in making mistakes and eliminating the best candidates for the field of creative sciences and information technology. To avoid this bias, Artificial Intelligence (AI) can be programmed to ignore the background of a candidate, and this has been applied in the past. In 2015, Google implemented an internal recruitment tool known as qDroid that disregards the background of the candidate and provides more reliable interview questions based on the position the company seeks to fill. Using tools such as qDroid can help companies to eliminate bias in recruiting the best candidates to fill positions in the fields of IT, life science, and creative science. AI will help to standardize the recruitment process to more objectively and better assess the ability and skills of candidates and remove the inherent human biases found in the process of sourcing and selection.
FINDING BETTER QUALIFIED CANDIDATES
The use of AI to find the best interview questions for the candidates and access a larger pool of candidates for the positions of IT, life sciences, and creative sciences will result in selecting the best-qualified candidates for the positions. Human recruiters have a limited ability to search for candidates compared to AI. AI can analyze the words used in the social media posts of candidates to narrow down the talent pool during the initial stages of recruitment. AI will ensure recruiters focus on the skills and expertise of candidates to enable companies to get the most talented and qualified applicants. By evaluating professionals, AI will deliver only the right candidates for recruitment. AI can gather and assess more data for every candidate and only provide the most qualified individuals to be recruited for positions in IT and creative sciences. Glider, for example, is an AI recruitment solution that utilizes sophisticated algorithms to evaluate the skill sets of candidates.
IMPROVING THE HIRING EXPERIENCE
AI will improve the hiring experience for candidates and recruiters. One of the ways is through survival analysis, a machine learning expertise that examines the time to an event. The technique can help AI to determine when recruiters require help with their workload so that they can hire appropriate candidates to help with the workload. AI will predict the future staffing needs and help the hiring teams to develop effective and thorough strategies. The applicant tracking system will enable AI to automatically update the records of candidates as they acquire more skills and experience and create a universal and transportable standardized resume profile. This will be of advantage to applicants in the fields of IT, life sciences, and creative sciences because their profiles will keep updated as they acquire more skills making them eligible for recruitment in more companies. It will also significantly reduce the period of uncertainty for candidates after their applications by ensuring they get a response in good time. AI will also track and learn the search patterns of job seekers in the fields o IT, creative sciences, and life science to target them with relevant jobs. Additionally, AI will improve employee recruitment by clearly assessing the required skills such as problem-solving, analytical skills, and creativity. It will ensure that recruiters find people who can demonstrate agility and resilience in their roles.
In conclusion, Artificial Intelligence will impact employee recruitment in IT, creative services, and life science fields by eliminating the human bias, identifying more qualified candidates, and improving the hiring experience. Glider, for example, is an AI recruitment solution that uses algorithms to assess the skills of candidates. Google also implemented qDroid, which is an AI recruitment tool that provides the most appropriate interview questions for its candidates.
