Robots pick up employees much better than HR managers

Artificial intelligence promises to change the sphere of hiring once and forever. Until now, one of the main problems is the so-called «courage» — many employees «lead» in the company of their relatives and friends. Recruiters and hire managers also bring their own prejudices into the process.

The researchers found that often, choosing people, Hedhanters pay attention to the «correctness» and the consonance of the name, as well as the prestige of education, bypassing real skills.

It is noted that companies lack racial and gender diversity. Women make up less than 5% of the heads of companies included in the Fortune 500 list and in the world there are only three African Americans, which occupy the Directors of the General Directors (according to Fortune 500).

AI supporters argue that technology can eliminate some of these prejudices. Instead of relying on the feelings of people when making employment decisions, companies such as Entelo and Stella IO use machine learning to determine the skills required for certain jobs. Then AI compares candidates who have these skills with open positions, based on what is concluded. Companies argue that not only find the best candidates, but also detect those who may have previously suspected of their amazing talents in the desired area.

STELLA IO algorithm evaluates candidates based on skills. It compares candidates only on the basis of data that is laid in his program. It limits bias.

AI is also used to develop talents. Corpu has formed a partnership with the University of Michigan Business School to build a 20-week online course that uses machine learning to identify employees with potential. Those who occupy the highest place are usually not people who have already been on the way to promote service, and often show such qualities as introversion that are overlooked during the recruitment process.

Thus, robots have proven themselves as the best solution for the sphere of hiring, thanks to which companies can receive truly effective employees.
