Billy Davis's insights into staffing automation present a comprehensive view of the transformative nature of automating recruitment processes. In the context of Candidate IQ, these ideas align perfectly, showing how staffing automation's full potential can be realized through accurate and quality data management.
Automation has become a game-changer in today's business landscape, reshaping how we approach various tasks and processes. From streamlining repetitive tasks to making complex calculations in seconds, automation has proved to be a boon. However, there's a fundamental prerequisite to reap its full benefits - good data.
Outside of your people, your organization's most powerful asset is its data. As you navigate the vast landscapes of information at your disposal, how confident are you in its quality and reliability? Trust in data is a cornerstone of effective decision-making and the foundation of realizing a substantial return on investment (ROI) on this crucial resource. But building this trust is no overnight feat; it requires consistent efforts, robust strategies, and a commitment to high data standards.
AI and automation are more than just fleeting trends - they represent a sea change in how business is done. The staffing industry, in particular, stands to gain considerably from these advancements, a point echoed in discussions at Engage Boston this year.
If you think about it, your agency's database is very much like a restaurant. It serves up valuable information (or 'meals') to different 'customers'—recruiters, hiring managers, even your automation systems. Now, imagine if the kitchen (your data repository) was disorganized or dirty. The quality of the meals (information) it serves would be compromised, leading to unhappy customers and potentially harming your reputation.
The saying "knowledge is power" rings incredibly true in the staffing industry. But what happens when the knowledge at your disposal—your data—is incomplete or inaccurate? A hot topic of conversation is using automation (RPA style workflows) to identify profile gaps and automatically reach out to candidates to update crucial contact information such as phone numbers and emails. That's an essential step in the right direction. However, you can take it a step further with today's technology.
In the digital age, personalization has become the holy grail for businesses across industries, and the staffing industry is no exception. The advent of AI technologies like OpenAI's ChatGPT has opened up a world of possibilities for personalizing communication at scale. However, like any powerful tool, automated personalization carries inherent risks, especially when it operates on outdated or incorrect information. This post will explore the potential pitfalls of "hyper-wrong" personalization, specifically in the context of job advertising campaigns.

Candidate intelligence is a term that has been gaining traction in the staffing industry over the past few years. Simply put, it refers to the ability to extract meaningful insights from candidate data to improve the recruitment process. But what does that actually mean, and how does it work?
In today's staffing industry, candidate intelligence has become an essential tool for recruiters. However, what many recruiters fail to realize is that the effectiveness of candidate intelligence relies heavily on the quality of data being used.
When it comes to staffing agencies, one of the biggest challenges is identifying the right candidates for a job. While traditional semantic search can help narrow down the talent pool, it often fails to prioritize candidates with similar experiences and qualifications.
The third pillar of Data Innovation needed to support Advantage 2.0 is Data-First applications. They take advantage of use-case specific Data Ecosystems and are different from the function-first applications we are used to and that are common in every business.
Gain advantage from your data vs. talk about it by understanding the 3 pillars necessary to realize consistent innovation with data. Data innovation has been wildly successful, and frequently highlighted as a key focus for competitive advantage. In many businesses, however, it is still more of a “buzz word” discussion than a meaningful driver of strategic and operating value.
Data Innovation is not a new concept but has not become mainstream in the corporate world. Using your data to innovate isn’t business-as-usual because the three pillars of Data Innovation are rarely embraced by enterprises, and artificial intelligence is just coming out of the lab. The pillars are:
In this piece, I am going to explore how companies can use AI to analyze and optimize their board composition. I was inspired to write this piece by the events at GE, which has recently announced that it will slash its dividend by 50%.
Vettd.ai college interns are gaining a unique perspective about the difference between classroom learning and real-world experience. They are being challenged to use open-source and low-cost software components to create prototype applications to compliment or compete with alternative approaches to natural language processing (NLP) solutions.
But how can you figure out which functions within your business can actually be transformed by AI? What are the quality limitations? How can you evaluate which business service companies are using AI effectively while others could be selling hyped up linear algebra? The best way to know if an AI product is right for your business is by asking the right questions.
Any job seeker or talent acquisition professional will tell you about the challenges in the digital candidate experience. On one side, exasperated candidates blanket job websites with resumes and cover letters.
Talent classification is a simple concept to grasp but can be a difficult practice to adopt without the right tools. We refer to talent classification as the process of categorizing human capital according to shared qualities or characteristics. This process helps you recognize, differentiate, and understand the talent you have at your disposal. Decision-making in talent acquisition and strategic workforce planning becomes much more straightforward with this level of insight.
The college and university admissions process has plenty of room for improvement based on experiences of two Vettd interns who spent the summer gathering data for a large project. In this blog, the interns suggest several ways to make the admissions process more user friendly.
In the December 7th issue of First Analysis Quarterly Insights, managing director Corey Greendale concludes that there’s a significant information gap that makes it difficult for organizations to optimize internal talent mobility.
Transparency in data privacy involves openness; being willing to share with users all aspects of usages of their personal data. This includes an openness on what is being collected, why it is being collected, how it is being analyzed, and how the decisions being made by AI algorithms were decided (what output parameters drove the decisions made by the AI algorithms).
As part of the candidate screening process, some organizations task their recruiters with manual tagging of the resumes they review. The idea here is to increase the usability of talent databases by generating metadata manually.
The use of Artificial intelligence (AI) in important decision-making areas continues to grow and includes such important decisions as: loan-worthiness, emergency response, medical diagnosis, job candidate selection, parole determination, criminal punishment, and educator performance. But, a critical question keeps coming up in these areas, how are the decisions being made?
You've probably read about how AI is being used in data security, financial trading, healthcare, fraud detection, or elsewhere. AI has taken hold in these industries, in part, because there is “big data” associated with each and ready-made AI solutions. But, what about the industries or use cases that don’t involve mountains of numerical data?
With the completion of every merger or acquisition, the electronic ink is barely dry for the Chief of Human Resources and their staff before they are called upon to integrate 500, or 2,500 or maybe 25,000 new employees into the new entity. This is a daunting task that's part art (aka experience + luck) and part science (aka …if only there was some).
Humans will always play a critical role in the hiring process, but the consistency vs efficiency challenge exemplifies why reviewing resumes is a task better suited for modern machines than modern humans.
Reviewing resumes can be the hardest and most demanding part of the entire hiring process. It’s extremely time consuming and is the first of many steps in a lengthy process. Unfortunately, it’s entirely necessary because job boards aren’t dead yet and resumes remain the primary way that candidates present themselves to companies.
In the era of digital transformation, having the right people in the right places will make or break your organization. If you can bring together data about your people and your business and map talent to the needs of your organization, you’ll better understand how to stay ahead of your competition.
Job seekers and employers have access to almost any information they want these days. This raises a few important questions. Is more data truly useful? Does more information directly correlate to better jobs, better employees, and better matches? How will we measure the impact that big data has on hiring in the future?
