The future of hiring, are you ready?

Wednesday 22 August 2018 - By Kathleen Powell - Co Founder and Director of Colossus Systems

In today’s article we shall be discussing how to embrace the inevitable. Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning is fast approaching, so how do we use it to our advantage, and avoid the feeling of getting left behind.

THE RISE OF AI AND MACHINE LEARNING IN HR AND RECRUITMENT

Having spent time on both sides of the hiring process, I know all too well that the recruitment process can be incredibly time consuming and at times frustrating, those that adopt AI and machine learning early on will reap the rewards. Through machine learning and automation, finding the right people for the job has become less of a manual process, decisions can be made faster and more effectively, whether that’s selecting a candidate’s suitability for a position or matching an existing employee to a job opening within the company.

With the introduction of AI and machine learning, PwC predicts that it is unlikely that AI will replace jobs but rather create new positions.Tweet: In reality AI is far from the Hollywood notion of terminator serving us our morning latte but more a way to utilise data to our advantage. In reality AI is far from the Hollywood notion of terminator serving us our morning latte but more a way to utilise data to our advantage. AI will simplify the most complex tasks, administrative and heavily manual tasks will be streamlined, so organisations and their teams can focus on managing and monitoring AI and spend more time on strategy and growth.

We have already seen the benefits analytics can have on spotting patterns and predicting future events, which inevitably improve decision making and workforce productivity and management.

It is evident that change is upon us and the technology revolution is nothing to fear, providing we embrace it, Tweet: it has been found that 70% of people already use some form of AI in their personal life, while only 24% of employees are using AI at work. it has been found that 70% of people already use some form of AI in their personal life, while only 24% of employees are using AI at work. These figures will increase, and the majority of HR professionals and employees agree that AI would improve productivity, operations and employee experience.

We as humans are well equipped at dealing with change and have been through and seen many revolutions over the years and come through on top. Albeit the adoption of AI will be somewhat different from previous revolutions, humans will need to think outside the box, use creativity, and become the leaders, thinkers and managers of AI.
