Even before the current pandemic and the subsequent economic fallout, talent acquisition teams had been looking for ways to do more with less, and this driving need for efficiency and innovation has only intensified over the past few months. Today, companies are seeking efficiency by nearly any means possible, exploring ways they can potentially transform their hiring processes to make them more effective. AI, or artificial intelligence, is one of the most promising mechanisms for doing just that.
We believe we are in the early stages of what we call “AI-first recruiting”, and that AI will have a profound and transformative impact on Talent Acquisition (TA) and how companies recruit. In this whitepaper, we introduce and define key concepts around artificial intelligence, discuss the current state of play, explain how AI is already manifested today in recruiting technology, and give a glimpse into where the industry is headed and what that means for your organization’s TA technology investment decisions.
