“AI can help you to handle recruiting, productivity, and retention more efficiently than traditional HR methods. At the same time, it also allows you to do it faster than ever before,” says HR specialist, Donald Southern.

Although AI is unable to review personality and face-to-face interviews, the software can evaluate, read, and scan applicants quickly eliminating 75% from the recruitment process. This immensely helps recruiters and allows them to focus more on analyzing and evaluating eligible candidates.

New employees tend to need a lot of attention and HR managers often times cannot dedicate enough of their time. Thankfully, AI is able to customize onboarding procedures for every employee and any position. It was found that new employees who received catered onboarding programs had much higher retention rates than their peers who didn’t have the same opportunity.

In result, it is able to notify which employees need to improve their productivity and those whom continuously lack engagement.

Also, it can determine who should get a raise or who may be dissatisfied with the work-life balance. This analysis with allows HR professional the option to be proactive and solve the issue before it occurs.
