Topic of the Week  AI in the Hiring Process

The use of Artificial Intelligence (AI) is becoming increasingly prevalent in the hiring process. It is important for workers to be aware of how this impacts them. AI can be used in several ways to expedite processes in the workplace. Internally, AI can be used to scan job applications, recruit, screen, hire, and onboard new candidates. AI tools are trained to recognize similar applicants that have been hired or denied employment in the past, the technology then uses those characteristics to identify applicants for a particular job. 

1. What is Artificial Intelligence (AI)? 

Artificial Intelligence is the use of computers and machines to mimic the problem-solving and decision-making capabilities of the human mind. AI is most used in industries such as transportation, healthcare, and finance. Since the pandemic, AI has been used in other industries like retail. 

2. Why are employers using AI in the hiring process? 

Involving AI in the employment processes helps human resources professionals sort through many applications efficiently. According to the American Bar Association, using AI allows every resume to be screened and eliminates preferences and biases of recruiters. In addition, some AI services can also save time by analyzing publicly available data such as social media profiles, resumes, and other text-based data submitted by the applicant, eliminating the need for additional assessments. 

Thought of the Week

"While there are some concerns about automation replacing human workers, AI is most successful when coupled with a human touch—or at least some human oversight. AI will likely play a large role in the future of work, but rather than replace employees, AI technology will change what type of work employees perform."
