When it comes to applying for jobs, we will all be familiar with the standard application processes, from submitting CVs and application forms to in-person interviews. However, with the development of artificial intelligence (AI), this could all be set to change.
RS Components has surveyed recruiters and HR professionals from the UK, to get an industry perspective on how AI could impact the way we hire, and are hired ourselves, for jobs in the future. You can see the full piece below.
3 IN 10 (30%) HR PROFESSIONALS THINK AI WILL BE ESSENTIAL TO THE RECRUITMENT PROCESS IN THE NEAR FUTURE
Here are some key stories from the piece:
The percentage of recruiters using AI has increased by a third (33%) over the last 5 years, from 25%, up to almost 3 in 5 (58%) today.
Despite 3 in 10 recruiters believing AI will play an essential role in recruitment in the future, 17% don’t think that AI should be used in recruitment at all
More than a quarter of men (27%) working in HR are likely to trust robots to help them hire, in comparison to just 1 in 10 (10%) women
16-34-year-olds working in the industry are also more likely to trust a robot, with 20% saying they would do so, in comparison to 12% of 35-54-year-olds and just 7% of those aged 55+
But which areas of the industry do recruiters think AI will improve the most?
Speed of hiring
Sourcing of candidates
Cost of recruitment (long term)
Diversity of hiring
Scale of hiring
Cost of recruitment (short term)
Quality of candidates
