Andrew Buhrmann's Perspective on AI in Staffing

There is a lot going on with AI, but the most important thing is not just clean and high quality data, but the proper controls to ensure you have command and understanding of where the data is coming from and how it’s being used. There are a lot tactical and strategic actions to consider when thinking about your AI strategy over the next 3-5 years. Don’t hesitate to ask for help and make sure you’re investing in an ecosystem not just a single product. No single system will “do it all” on its own.

As AI continues to grow in the staffing industry, it's clear that a multifaceted approach is necessary. From ensuring data quality and centralization to balancing innovation with ethics and expanding your technology ecosystem, these aspects are crucial for leveraging AI effectively.
