On November 7, 2019, Meghan M. Biro, CEO, TalentCulture, led a SmartSearch SmartPractices webinar addressing the growing interest in artificial intelligence (AI) and how it impacts talent acquisition and staffing.

According to a McKinsey Global Institute research report, “AI could deliver $13 trillion in annual global productivity gains by 2030.” This gain will change how many organizations conduct business and especially how they hire strategically to fill roles with individuals on board with AI as a constant fixture in the organization’s business.

AI delivers “scrubbed” data that is more easily consumable and efficient; however, the end-users will need to learn how to interact and partner with AI to achieve successful results. Artificial intelligence will eliminate mundane and tedious tasks allowing recruiters to focus on the practices of interviewing and hiring. AI is not a replacement for the human experience, but rather an accompaniment or assistant supporting the end-user.
