How AI can improve your human resource efforts
How to use AI to recruit the best talent.
Artificial intelligence is already helping businesses make better, faster decisions. This applies to the field of human resources as much as anything else. HR recruiters have adopted AI software to help expedite recruiting and create more efficiency in the overall recruitment and selection process. Here are some of the ways that artificial intelligence can help change the HR recruitment process for the better.
AI software can scan, read, and analyze applications and according to some HR studies can reduce applicants by up to 75%. This means that recruitment professionals can spend less time sorting through resumes and can select from a smaller pool of candidates who are more likely to be a quality match for the position.
AI is especially effective at helping weed out applicants based on keywords and other factors, saving those working in human resource recruitment a great deal of time and effort sorting through resumes that ultimately aren’t a match. It can also help save the business money from making poor hiring decisions and having to launch the recruitment process for that position all over again.
AI can capture data that makes the recruiting process more effective. AI can help businesses understand what resonates with candidates and the touchpoints the applicants have with the business along the recruitment process. This helps businesses understand the points of success in their hiring process and how they can improve to reach more candidates for the next round of hiring.
Additionally, AI in HR software can target candidates who are more likely to be a fit for the job postings. Personalized messages and highly targeted advertising of job postings can help businesses attract the best talent for their postings. This can be especially helpful for small businesses with less time, money, and resources to spend on recruiting.
Finally, AI can help minimize hiring bias that is often unintentionally present in people who spend most of their time sorting through resumes. Reduced bias is crucial when it comes to hiring the right talent for any position.
Retention is linked to recruiting. Employees who are more satisfied with their jobs and their place of work mean that the HR department doesn’t have to recruit someone else for that position, because the person already occupying it is more likely to stay. AI is helpful in analyzing the needs of employees, as well as being able to poll and pull reporting on employee satisfaction through surveys and other measures.
Additionally, HR professionals in recruitment are more likely to have their own job satisfaction when the redundancy of certain tasks is reduced. This means that they çan do a better job with sourcing candidates, writing job postings, conducting interviews, and other more involved tasks.
AI can add a lot of value to businesses, even at the HR recruiting level. From saving money to saving time, AI programs can give recruiters better candidate returns.
