What promise does AI hold for recruitment?  (1/3)

The world of recruitment is changing significantly. The rise of Artificial Intelligence (AI) tools is disrupting the way organizations find and select the right talent. In a series of three videos Deloitte gives insight on the promises AI hold for recruitment, the ethical & legislative challenges and how AI can be successfully be applied in recruitment.

As discussed in the 2020 Human Capital Trends report, AI technology is now being used in the end-to-end recruitment process, moving past the initial focus on talent sourcing. AI can support recruitment not only in resume sifting or candidate matching, but can also provide additional valuable insights and improve the candidate experience through game-based assessments and video job interviews. If used correctly, AI has the potential to reduce (unconscious) bias and increase the objectivity of the entire recruitment process. In order to apply AI, recruiters and HR experts require some understanding of AI, what it is and the promise it holds for recruitment, the ethics & legislation focused on the intersection of AI and bias in recruitment, and also what is needed to implement AI in your recruitment process. 

Deloitte brings you a series of three videos in which experts from academia, government and the business discuss AI and recruitment from their perspective. The goal of this series is to provide the viewer with the basic answers to the three important questions: What promises does AI hold for recruitment? What are the ethical & legislative challenges including the relation to bias? And finally, how can you be successful applying AI in recruitment? 

This video dives into the question “what promise does AI hold for recruitment?" Andrew Demetriou and  Cynthia Liem (TU Delft), Rina Joosten (Seedlink technologies), Annemarie Hiemstra (Erasmus University), Evert Haasdijk  (Deloitte)  and Luc Mutsaers (Dutch labour inspection) share their expertise on this topic.
