You may have heard about the surge of new AI technologies being open and used by the public in recent months and even formed some unfavorable opinions about it. Will these new technologies take over our jobs? Will an online robot outperform me? It has been said that AI technology will actually be beneficial in the coming months to many businesses with things like note-taking, research, and content creation.

Artificial intelligence, or AI, has revolutionized many aspects of our lives and within our fields of business, especially in the realm of human resources and recruitment. In fact, AI has the potential to transform the way HR professionals recruit, manage, and develop talent. 77% of businesses are using or exploring AI (IBM), so the time is now to see what AI can do for you and your company.

Streamlining Recruitment

Finding and recruiting the right candidate can be a challenging and time-consuming process. AI-powered recruitment tools can help streamline the process by automatically screening resumes and identifying candidates who meet the desired qualifications. This can save HR professionals time and effort, enabling them to focus on other critical tasks that otherwise wouldn’t have received their attention.

Help With Repetitive Tasks

AI can help with the repetitive and time-consuming tasks that come with recruitment such as reviewing resumes, scheduling interviews, and sending follow-up email responses. AI can help to find quality candidates in a stack of hundreds of resumes or reference your calendar to book meetings based on the candidate’s preferences. In many instances, recruiters spend hours trying to reach out to every single lead they receive that they can’t focus on the ones they have made contact with, so using AI to help the process move faster is beneficial to the company overall.

Improved Candidate Experience

The recruitment process can be stressful for candidates, especially if they are not informed of their status in a timely manner or not knowing the next steps they need to take. AI can improve the candidate experience by automating communication, providing updates, and answering frequently asked questions. This will help candidates feel more engaged during the hiring process and give them the correct information efficiently.

Predictive Analytics

AI can analyze large volumes of data including candidate profiles, job descriptions, and hiring outcomes to identify patterns and predict the success of a candidate. Recruiters can make more informed decisions about which candidates are likely to succeed in the role and succeed with the company. This can also help with retention as recruiters will be able to match certain candidates to certain jobs based on the AI information.

Matching Candidates to Jobs

AI can use machine learning algorithms to match candidates with jobs based on their skills, experience, and other factors. This can help recruiters identify suitable candidates more quickly and reduce the time to hire. At GoToro, our new technology has the ability to use this type of machine learning as well to match the best candidates to jobs that fit their experience and skills. We included this to give our customers a more fluid hiring experience and to find the right people faster.

All in all, AI technology is transforming the recruitment space by automating tasks, using predictive analytics to identify suitable candidates, matching those candidates to the right job, and improving their overall experience in the hiring process. By leveraging AI technology, recruiters can streamline their processes, make better hiring decisions, and attract and retain top talent. AI will never take the human out of HR, but it can assist in the HR space and make your life as a recruiter much easier!
