How AI based recruitment can ease recruiter’s life by reaching the right candidate?
True Story !
After 4 months(128 days) a perfect candidate, Rahul was found. We engaged External RPO advertised through our job board, on LinkedIn and cast the net far-and-wide. We had over 400 people applying, with a great shortlist of 14 candidates. Rahul went through all the recruitment processes with 2 more final rounds. He was not the cheapest among the final 3 but technical/psychometrics test with interview results showed we have a winner/future leader. Rahul was engaged and onboarded when He joined us we felt a sense of relief.
In Less than 4 months later he resigned citing lack of fitment to the profile given and the work he was doing. It’s a disaster!
Doing the ROI we’ve wasted so much time, energy and money (Rs 8 Lacs not counting man hours put in for the search / interviews/test selection) only to have to do this again.
So what’s my point?
Because there was no follow up after the initial phase of the hiring process, He felt ignored, which left him wondering why should it take 72 days to be initial response that he is shortlisted. He already shared this in his network – look at this from employer branding POV.
And of course. The HR team at the organization where the candidate applied to was probably overloaded with work. But if they would’ve had something of an automated sequence or AI-powered Tool in place to initiate this 1st engagement in one week max 10 days , the bad sentiment could have been avoided.
Thirdly, the diversity and range of candidates matching the profile is much wider because the subconscious biases which creep in , can be arrested at the screening stage.
The result was wrong place and wrong job….A classic case of Talent Acquisition versus Recruiting A macro vis a vis micro
CVViZ, a recruitment software, arrests this thing at a very early stage , even if one does a bit of trial and error , apart from human eye. The AI based automation software shows you where you are going wrong or right. The matching of the JD vis a vis profiles which are with you can be corrected real time…I mean in seconds not after weeks or months. Recruitment automation has become need of the hour and use of artificial intelligence has made the job hiring faster and effective.
The Power of Data by AI with analytics is in front of you…Not just leap of trust….
