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.

How Do I Choose the Right Job for Me?
Whether you're just starting out in life, looking to make a career change or (lucky you!) trying to decide between multiple job offers, you may find the possibilities overwhelming. How do you figure out which job will best fit your skills, passion and personality? What if you aren't fully qualified for the job you want?   Here are some methods that may help you identify — and land — your perfect job.   Describe Your Ideal Job and Employer This is about more than your work duties.

How Recruiting Will Change in Light of COVID-19
  If you’ve been on the internet in the past week, month, day, or half-hour, you’ve most likely seen some version of the headline, “How COVID-19 Will Permanently Alter [Insert Industry Here].”   And for a good reason. The pandemic has shined a light on the lack of a business continuity plan in many industries — including recruiting. The process of building teams is quickly evolving for countless companies, and this change is especially daunting for organizations that lack a flexible staffing strategy.   Whether trying to find temp workersor something a bit more permanent, recruiting and staffing won’t be the same once the pandemic subsides. What will it look like then?   1. It’ll be from a distance. Social distancing won’t just be a solution for decluttering restaurants and bars. Recruiting from a distance — and with the help of virtual technology — will be essential to any business continuity plan.   Much of the recruiting cycle (e.g., sourcing, interviewing, etc.)...

The New Post-Pandemic Company Culture
Many businesses haven't operated "normally" — if at all — for months. As we step out of lockdown and back into the workplace, what will be our new reality? What changes will be permanent? How can we smooth the transition for companies and workers alike?   Safety Practices The most visible changes will be to the physical space. New barriers, equipment, workflows and cleaning protocols will confront the returning worker. Businesses must keep up to date on the latest health and safety recommendations to help employees feel comfortable about being in the workplace.   Phasing In Employees may also have to get used to not seeing the usual crew. In order to limit the number of employees present at the same time, many companies are bringing workers back gradually, with the most essential (or those who volunteered) returning first.   Alternatively, some businesses are establishing staggered work times, or a weekly in/out rotation where some teams are in the office while other...
