Artificial intelligence (AI) is one of the most discussed topics in the world today.  Many think it can revolutionize many industries, making them more efficient and profitable than ever before.  One of those industries that AI can revolutionize and improve is recruiting or HR.

Many workers in industries such as HR are concerned that AI could lead to them being ousted from their current positions. As humans may no longer be needed to do many of the occupations today.  An MIT Technology Review research paper in the Asia-Pacific region 70% of HR executives felt AI and robotics will lead to considerable job losses.  This view was not shared by talent acquisition professionals and HR managers. They felt that they have more strategic and broader roles as a result of AI and robotics being used in HR.

Artificial intelligence in the HR industry can help focus on the needs of employees and candidates to fill various positions.  And help elevate HR efforts for everyone in an organization because AI will help some of the labor-intensive tasks. Thereby allowing people to focus more on the needs of human workers in a company.

For instance, AI can help to scale company coaching or career development programs to improve efficiency and more productive employees. AI can also help to answer common employee questions regarding salary information, health benefits, and vacation time.

Benefits from AI

It’s not just current employees who can benefit from AI.  Artificial intelligence can help to screen potential candidates both before and after they apply for a position within a company.  Potential hires can interact with an AI tool or chat box and answer common hiring questions or a potential role within a company. Also providing feedback and questions they have during the interview.  Using AI can help managers and higher-level executives to quickly determine which candidates will fit best within their organization.

AI can improve companies’ communication with potential candidates, as 50% do not receive feedback after applying for a position on a job board or career site.  AI can be more much personalized and interactive with candidates than typical automated messages and emails.  A company using artificial intelligence in its recruiting efforts can show the candidate that the company cares.
