Recruiters have a tough job – driving speed and efficiency to fill open roles with the best available talent, while evaluating candidates’ skills and potential for success in the organization. Artificial intelligence (AI) has been hailed as a technology savior that will replace the inefficiencies of human-based recruiting processes with chatbots and hiring algorithms. Beyond the dystopian hype, though, there is evidence that proven science combined with cutting-edge AI can transform hiring. What is the role of human recruiters in an AI world? How do we know the robots are any good? In this session, we will cover key elements of predictive hiring, why some algorithms are better than others, and how to future-proof your recruiting process.


Learning Objectives

1) Gain familiarity with key elements of predictive science-based hiring, including job analysis, talent measurement and validity.
2) Understand what are hiring algorithms, how they are broadly developed, and why some algorithms are better than others.
3) Learn how to critically evaluate your recruiting processes against evidence-based best practices for fair and predictive hiring.
