Talk of Artificial Intelligence is everywhere these days. Experts believe that this technology will revolutionize industries from real estate to finance. But can artificial intelligence help recruiters and hiring managers? Keep reading to find out.
How Can Artificial Intelligence Help Recruiters?
Artificial intelligence (AI), defined as computer systems able to perform tasks once reserved to human intelligence, is poised to change the way we work, and recruiting and hiring are no exceptions to this trend.
Below are four ways AI can help recruiters save time and be more efficient.
1. Write Better Job Descriptions
If you are a recruiter who finds it challenging to craft good job descriptions, we have good news for you: Writing is one of the fields where AI is already making a difference. While the chatbot ChatGPT has impressed the world with its ability to write content, there are already many commercial solutions available that automate writing, dramatically reducing the time it takes to create any type of content.
2. Onboard New Employees
As you probably noticed above, ChatGPT, the most widely known application of AI, is a chatbot. This means that AI not only can write content, but it can also interact with humans conversationally, making it a great tool for onboarding employees. AI excels at repetitive, predictable tasks, so it can take things like uploading documents or answering common questions off the plates of recruiters.
3. Review Large Amounts of Documents
Again, repetitive tasks are AI’s bread and butter. While human HR professionals may (understandably) find it exhausting to review hundreds or even thousands of resumes, artificial intelligence can take care of the task in a matter of minutes and with laser-like precision, provided that its human users input the right prompts.
4. Gain Deeper Insights Into Employee Turnover
While talent acquisition is a big part of what recruiters and hiring managers do, retention is also important. With its ability to analyze data and find patterns where humans would only see random information, AI can help companies reduce employee turnover and increase engagement by providing a better understanding of what makes employees leave in the first place.
A Word of Caution
With all the above being said, AI is far from perfect and its application in HR departments still requires close human supervision. So while the future of recruitment won’t be one of complete automation, some of the most repetitive tasks of a human resources department will be handled by AI — a revolution that is already taking place in companies around the world.
