AI Powered Hiring

  • social4 13 ai in recruiting blog header

In our recent study "Artificial Intelligence for Recruiting Success," we discussed ways that new technology can save us time and effort while attracting a better pool of job candidates. In this article, we'll explore the benefits and uses of predictive analytics.

 

Simply put, predictive analytics is the process of looking at past data to determine what will happen in the future. Machine learning automates much of this activity for us, freeing up recruiting professionals for higher level work including in-person interviews, critical thinking, key decision making, and so on.

 

Finding Talent

How does this help with recruitment? Programmed with your data on production performance and behaviors, attrition, employee life cycle, engagement surveys and any other metrics you choose, predictive analytics software can be "trained" to look for your ideal employee. It can scan all the available candidate sources, as well as discover overlooked talent in your existing applicant database.

 

The longer you use it, the better it works, as it learns from its own historical data, of the candidates hired, which resulted in the highest levels of productivity and retention. That information is then incorporated in its screening of future candidates.

 

Optimizing Job Postings

Want to laser target your audience and increase advertising ROI? Factors such as occupation, industry, and location, along with your company's requirements, predictive analytics can help you create job advertisements that precisely target your desired talent pool. The result? A greater response from desirable candidates and fewer responses from those who aren't qualified for the position.

 

The same software can be used to identify the best media for reaching your target audience and eliminate those with poor ROI. For example, you might allocate your recruiting budget primarily to online job boards, third-party recruiting firms, professional networks or social media, depending on what type of position you're hiring for.

 

Improving Diversity

AI can remove bias and expand your talent pool. Because they are purely data-driven, these automated tools look in places you may not have thought of, helping to eliminate unconscious biases and allow for an even playing field. As a result, they draw on a wider talent pool, increasing the effectiveness of your hiring process. AI can even help improve existing processes with little changes to your business. Take Textio, for example, a platform that assess a company’s existing job descriptions and offers suggestions to improve inclusivity. Free tools like Unbiasify, take it one step further, removing photos and names from applications, allowing recruiters to fully focus on the individual’s qualifications.

 

Improving Engagement

You’ve found the right people, so how do you keep them on the hook? Through AI, recruiters are using new tools to meet potential employees where they are, and fostering closer relationships. One of these tools is Chatbots. Once thought of as a tool to better bridge the gap between sales and customers, Chatbots have moved into the recruiting space to increase engagement and provide a stronger candidate experience. Chatbots can be used to answer common candidate questions, verify qualifications, and even keep applicants in the loop through the application process.

 

These tools can also be used to reduce the time to hire, adding AI powered automation to move applications through the hiring process

Conclusion

It's important to remember that — as with every other implementation of data analysis — the quality, security, and privacy of the data must be safeguarded. It’s best to phase in any new analytics, restricting the first steps to leveraging only the data you know is accurate, to ensure success. With time, though, you'll be able to reap the rewards of a more efficient and effective recruiting process.

Professional Networking in the Time of COVID-19
There's no doubt that social distancing has put a stop to many of the face-to-face conferences and other events where you have been used to growing and maintaining your industry connections. But there are many ways to achieve the same — or even better — results through digital channels.   Consider how many people are working from home now. Without the interruptions of a busy workplace, they're easier to reach; and they often have more time and interest in communicating. And now we all have something new in common: how to cope with our new economic reality.   Touch base with existing contacts. Former coworkers, advisors, classmates, friends, relatives — they all count as network connections who may lead you to your next position.   Send an email to ask how they're doing during this crisis and offer to help in any way you can. Some of them may be in a chaotic situation right now, so keep the focus on empathy, not asking for a favor or selling anything. You're just making a...

9 Ways to Show Your Coworkers Gratitude
  When we're rushed and stressed at work, we often don't take the time to express appreciation for our colleagues' hard work and help. And that's a shame, because a small word or gesture of thanks can have a huge effect on both the person who receives it and the one who says it.   So, let's spread the love, people! Let's brighten our day, improve our relationships, make our jobs more enjoyable and maybe even boost our careers.   1. Send a Handwritten Note Writing your "thank you" on a nice notecard is extra impressive because it shows you cared enough to put time and effort into it. The message can be just a sentence or two about why you are thanking them: pitching in during a crunch time, educating you in new techniques or responsibilities, contributing ideas or expertise to a project, etc.   2. Compliment Them in Front of the Team Tell everyone what a great job your work friend has done. Mutual appreciation is a proven team-builder, which makes everyone happier and...
