All humans have bias, unconscious or otherwise – the risks and effects of which have never been more apparent than in recruitment. As such, it seems reasonable to hope that technology holds the key to achieving fairer outcomes in hiring decisions. For those committed to making the process more inclusive and organisations more diverse, the potential and ever increasing possibilities for technology as part of recruitment can appear limitless. As the use of AI in recruitment continues to hit the headlines, automation in recruitment has become more widespread, transforming who and how companies recruit. Although the appeal of AI is clear (and its use can be transformative in recruitment), it is important to reappraise exactly what technology can change for the better right now. By taking a more realistic look at the technology, we can recalibrate our expectations and understand the role we have to play in driving meaningful change.
