Many organisations are not taking advantage of the use of AI when it comes to the recruitment process, finds a new report.
Those working in senior HR roles, from different sized organisations, completed the REC and Savanta survey – nine out of ten respondents said that their company does not use AI in their recruitment and just three per cent of them intend to use AI in the next 12 months.
Commenting on the findings, Kate Shoesmith, Deputy Chief Executive at the REC, said, “Hirers must play tech catch up with jobseekers who are already way ahead of them in their use of AI. HR professionals must start to embrace AI if they want to successfully attract and retain top talent.
“AI can speed up and make processes easier for HR professionals such as scheduling and personal training plans. After all, there is nothing more productive for organisations than to hire the right person, optimise their performance and keep them.
“HR departments still have plenty of time to turn to external support from recruiters who can help them to accelerate their shift to AI. Recruiters are charging ahead on AI as part of their delivery, advisory and consultative work.
“As we found when publishing our recent Tech-Enabled Humanity report, many recruiters are using AI to deliver transformational experiences to workers and their clients.”
