How are AI-Based Systems Improving the Internal and External Candidate Experiences?

By |2021-02-03T18:45:35-05:00February 4th, 2021|eightfold.ai|

Like many HR veterans, we still remember the filing cabinet days. When HR technology was introduced, we all set aside our pen and paper ways and made room for the systems and their accompanying efficiencies. For a long time, innovations in human resources suites drove HR professional job empowerment, employee self-service, talent acquisition and candidate experience improvements, and better analytics and KPI measurements. Though success of deployments was mostly dependent on the creativity and willingness of the business to maximize software functionality and the overall strategy for achieving user adoption, we can unanimously say the industry was improved by HRIS.

But…these systems are still not enough to guarantee a seamless candidate experience, an optimal employee experience, and the most ideal outcomes for organizations (especially those dealing with change or transition). Furthermore, as technology advances, it delivers new solutions but also […]

The current wait time for a Peloton bike is nearly three months. Two years ago, connected fitness barely existed, and today, Peloton – the billion-dollar company credited with jump-starting the trend – is synonymous with it. Peloton’s success is based on leveraging holistic, at-home programming and intelligent software to drastically improve workout efficiency.

If you read our last post, you know why artificial intelligence (AI) is finally poised to transform the human resources (HR) industry. Much like Peloton did for the exercise industry, AI solutions have entered the HR space, not just as new technology, but as fundamental enablers for intelligent efficiency improvement. 

But what, specifically, does that look like on a daily basis for current AI adopters? And what can AI do that your current software can’t?

Why Has Artificial Intelligence Finally Arrived in the World of HR?

By |2021-01-13T16:54:32-05:00January 11th, 2021|Blue Crab Consulting, eightfold.ai|

Seemingly overnight, we went from imagining a world of robots and artificial intelligence (AI) to existing in such a world. Our acceptance of and reliance on AI is apparent when we turn on Netflix, log into Amazon (does anyone actually ever log out of Amazon?), avoid junk email thanks to AI-supported spam filters, and enjoy the luxury of autonomous driving. There are also many AI-powered applications that aren’t as obvious and are hidden in a layer of technology, such as speech recognition and trading algorithms. Artificial intelligence has fully arrived in our consumer lives.

Now that we’ve acknowledged the innumerable facets of our world subtly bolstered by AI, it’s time to discuss its impact closer to home, or rather, the workplace. Certain advancements have enabled AI to play an increasingly important role in the human resources (HR) industry. How will these advancements impact […]

The Candidate Experience: As Easy as Drag and Drop?

By |2020-12-22T11:38:41-05:00December 5th, 2020|Blue Crab Consulting, eightfold.ai|

The typical job hunt is fraught with frustration, second guessing, and the monotony of reading one job description after another until they all seem to blend together. Job candidates are often too hard on themselves, doubting their credentials and qualifications. They may forget to dream about what job they want or ponder what job they could be qualified for, often just searching for the job they’ve always had. 

What if all that could change?

What if the candidate experience could be a positive and transformative one? What if we could remove self-bias, and set candidates free to find the right job based on their skill set and previous experience? 

What if the candidate didn’t even have to job search at all?

Reducing the Job Hunt from Months to Seconds

These aren’t merely hypothetical questions. All of this is actually possible through powerful artificial […]
