Companies are increasingly turning to technology to minimize unconscious bias in the recruiting and hiring process. Reducing bias creates a more diverse, creative, and resilient workforce.
Keen to support this within Workable, we’ve recently formed a partnership with Human, a video interviewing and machine learning provider.
Technology provided by Human goes beyond video recordings. Through their analysis with artificial intelligence (AI), recruiting and hiring teams can better understand a candidate’s skills, characteristics and emotional intelligence free from human bias.
By integrating Human with Workable you can send out video interviews through your ATS and link to the results from the candidate’s timeline. And start building a more diverse team.
Culture add, not culture fit
One of the risks of hiring for cultural fit is an increasingly homogenous workforce. Studies show that diverse teams make better decisions, deliver a greater ROI, and are more ready to challenge and change. So it makes sense to focus more on culture add, or what someone can bring to a team, over how seamlessly they’ll blend in.
This is where Human’s intelligent software comes in. Using AI for parts of the hiring process lessens the chance of subconscious judgements, and screening decisions based on cultural fit, mood or context.
EQ meets IQ
Easy to measure, IQ has traditionally been used to make quick decisions in the early stages of the hiring process. A good indicator of mental agility and standalone intelligence, it still has a place in some forms of screening. But it’s now viewed as a poor indicator of success in the workplace.
Instead, hiring teams are looking at levels of emotional quotient (EQ) when screening candidates. Because people with high emotional intelligence make better team players and ultimately better leaders.
Human uses machine learning to capture levels of emotional intelligence and further enrich and strengthen the hiring process.
Using video and analytics-based software to automate the early stages of the hiring process also comes with time and cost-saving benefits.
Stats from Human show an increase in screening time efficiency by 3 times and an increase in cost efficiency by 5 times.
