How AI could change the game for recruiters (and job-seekers)
Recruitment guru Zanele Luvuno says artificial intelligence (AI) has the power to improve the work of the recruitment industry and the make-up of corporate South Africa.
AI, also known as machine intelligence, refers to simulated intelligence that has been programmed into computers.
Luvuno has begun using AI as a part of the recruitment process at her firm Transcend Talent Management and on behalf of several business clients.
She explains the benefits of AI, adding that it circumvents implicit biases of human recruiters and interviewers.
Luvuno says the AI identifies a candidates aptitude for certain skills and their talent potential.
She says the AI is used as pre-assessment tool, implementing behavioural and epigenetic science.
According to Luvuno, AI has helped recruiters identify potential and create necessary training interventions.
She believes that machine intelligence can be used to create better employee experience and candidate experience.
