Recruiters are faced with a number of challenges, from ineffective and lengthy administration processes, to manually reviewing hundreds of CV’s at a time, analysing the results and creating reports to base hiring decisions on.
Not only is the workload vast, with recruiters having to manage a mammoth number of tasks simultaneously it’s also pretty varied, and - this is where chatbots come in - helping recruiters save money, increase efficiencies and overall take candidate engagement to a whole new level.
During this blog post, we will look at how chatbots and AI can be used to simplify and enhance the recruitment and retention process across any industry sector.
Firstly, let’s look at how chatbots can be used to simplify the recruitment process. There are a number of repetitive tasks that a chatbot can take care of, giving humans the capacity to deal with more complex and mentally demanding matters. Some of these tasks include:
- Reading and rating CV’s
- Screening potential candidates
- Providing status updates of an application
- Answering candidate FAQs
- Conduct first-stage interviews
- Check work eligibility
- Assess whether potential candidates are a cultural fit
- Run background checks
- Set up reminder
Once the recruitment process has been taken care of, the bot can also be used to streamline onboarding process by providing and requesting all the necessary information and documentation, setting up payroll, generating network passwords plus much more - the possibilities are endless.
