Recruiting teams and talent sourcing groups are starting to see the power behind artificial intelligence (AI). LinkedIn Talent Solutions interviewed 9,000 recruiters and hiring managers around the world, trying to uncover the most relevant recruiting trends. Their survey found that most (76%) believe AI’s impact on recruiting will be significant, and in very specific ways. The felt it would be helpful with sourcing (58%), screening (56%), and nurturing candidates (55%). The survey further revealed their belief that AI would be a time saver, remove human bias from the hiring process, and deliver the best candidate matches.
Those are pretty powerful findings, but what about in practice. How can AI help your talent team find and nurture candidates? Will the technology behind AI-powered recruiting tools make your team stronger?
Automation that Saves Time
No matter what business you’re in, one of the greatest benefits that AI offers is automation of tedious and time consuming tasks. For talent sourcing, those tasks including sourcing candidates, making initial contact, and then prequalifying them for open positions. AI-powered recruiting tools can automate these processes, leaving your team more time to focus on higher-level tasks. Your team can spend their energy on candidate interviews, follow-up calls, and ensuring candidates and clients are satisfied with the recruiting process.
Access to a Much Larger Candidate Pool
If you plan to explore AI tools for recruiting, choose a tool that draws from a very large data set. For example, the database that our team uses has access to 15 million clinical staff profiles in the U.S. This offers you access to four times more potential candidates that other sourcing services. Using AI and machine learning algorithms, HealthcareWings taps into that data set to unearth passive candidates (those not actively looking) as well as candidates open to relocation (willingness to move). Those two features alone widen the talent pool far above what other talent sourcing tools offer.
The Power to Be Specific
One of the most frustrating aspects of healthcare recruiting is how complex job requirements are. Many healthcare jobs demand very specific fields, or even unusual skill combinations. Those demands make finding the right person a challenge for talent sourcing teams. An AI-powered tool, specifically created for the healthcare field, should be able to compile a deeper level of qualification data. For example, HealthcareWings gathers certification information, areas of healthcare expertise, and historical demographic data (locations where candidates once lived, worked, and went to school). With that information, recruiters can be quite specific in what they’re looking for, and the AI sourced tool will find candidates that are the closest match for specific job descriptions.
What This Means for Your Talent Sourcing Team
In short, relief. That’s what AI offers your team. Using AI-powered talent sourcing tools, your team gains relief from the most challenging parts of their job. Here are specific results your team should expect from an AI-powered talent sourcing tool like the one we offer:
- Your team often wastes precious time looking for contact information for potential recruits. That alone can waste 15-30 minutes per candidate they want to contact. Find a tool that delivers that information directly to your team, ensuring automatic time savings.
- Our solution searches over 200 domains and healthcare-focused specialties. Your talent searches can be narrowed by domain (nursing, mental health, etc.), job title (chief nursing officer, registered nurse anesthetist, etc.), and specialty (pediatrics, geriatrics, diabetes, etc.). You outline specifics, and then we source the best candidates for you.
- Prequalification is a time consuming chore for your team. Using AI-powered algorithms, ourI platform prequalifies candidates, removing yet one more burden from your talent sourcing team.
AI can give you a happier, more focused recruiting team, by allowing machines to do the tasks that they can do better than humans (searching large data sets) and relieving them of the boring tasks that machines can do instead (sourcing and prequalifying talent). With the mundane tasks off their plates, your team can focus instead on employee retention and satisfaction.
