Hiring. It’s never as easy as it sounds, is it? The hiring process costs time and money while offering zero guarantees. This is why innovative recruiting solutions like artificial intelligence (AI) pique the interest of hiring teams.
In theory, AI hiring tools would expand talent pools, automate processes, and bring dream candidates to our attention quicker so jobs could be filled faster. We’d see an era of people-first recruiting that benefits both candidates and companies.
Our latest webinar and accompanying whitepaper — both titled “The Broken Promises of Recruiting Technology” — don’t treat this as a current reality, though. We instead look at the current state of AI hiring tools, detailing how they are:
Costly: The process itself is still convoluted, and it hasn’t gotten any cheaper.
Isolated: The notion of pulling from more sources quickly has dissipated as platforms continue to cull candidates from the same rotation of networks.
Biased: Innovative hiring solutions aren’t slant-free; vendor partnerships still dictate which candidates rise above others. The machinery also isn’t calibrated to allow for recent pushes for diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) sourcing.
Misaligned: Disparate solutions got stacked on top of one another in hopes they would somehow coordinate. But they struggle to speak to one another, making hiring process optimization that much more difficult.
We’ll also explore how the push to figure out how to streamline the hiring process caused people-first recruiting to get lost in the shuffle. Innovation started to trump humanization, and it has been detrimental to both sides of the hiring process.
The overarching theme across both the webinar and the whitepaper is this: People are the core of any company’s recruiting process, and they’re an indispensable facet of the recruiting process.
The AI hiring tools and associated technology that keep that fact in mind — and teams that make it central to every piece of hiring tech they adopt — position themselves well. Not only will they attract the best and brightest candidates, but they will also empower their hiring teams to realize the true power of recruiting technology and people-first recruitment.
