Using Predictive Analytics to Recruit Top Talent


Historical data can be an authoritative source of intel for a company looking to make smarter and faster decisions. When efficiencies are possible, it's best to use the tools available to achieve them. Today's recruiters need a more efficient workflow, which is driving the advancements being made in hiring tools, including the introduction of predictive analytics. In recent years, predictive analytics have become an essential tool for any recruiter looking to acquire top talent. Predictive analytics (PA) is the use of historical data to make better decisions for the future using artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML).

Apply AI to your sourcing efforts and fast-track your candidate pipeline


Attracting top talent is vital within any company or organisation. According to a CareerBuilder survey, 75% of employers admitted to having made a poor hiring decision, resulting in a loss of nearly US$15,000 per bad hire. In today's world, finding the right talent that will stick may seem more difficult than first imagined. Why wait for candidates to come to you when you could find them before you even click on a job ad template? As a recruiter, you could be sourcing your candidates and choosing who you add to your talent pipeline, instead of candidates deciding whether to engage with you.
