A recent report has revealed that 68% of respondents said that it wouldn’t be fair if AI alone chose who should be interviewed without the input of a human recruiter.
The survey of 431 professionals across a wide range of industries, compiled by Korn Ferry, also found that nearly half (41%) said they feel uncomfortable dealing with AI instead of a human recruiter as part of the process, and 76% said they trust AI less than a person to guide the job search process.
Matt Heckler, general manager, Global Client Platform Solutions, Korn Ferry, commented, “AI, when coupled with machine learning, is an incredibly strong tool in the journey to source and select the most qualified candidates, but it’s just that, a ‘tool,’”
“The best recruiters use big data and AI to free time by automating tasks such as sourcing. This gives the recruiter more time to focus on what matters: creating and filling roles that help organizations fulfill their strategic agenda.”
“As AI continues to become part of our everyday lives, we can expect to see an increase in the adoption and integration of this emerging technology to help talent acquisition professionals be even more efficient and effective,” continued Heckler.
“From freeing up time for strategic thought and relationship building to helping talent acquisition professionals better understand their markets, the intelligent use of technology provides an exciting path for the recruiter of the future.”
