Roundtable - AI HR PARADOX- How AI Brings the Human Touch to Recruiting

Updated: Nov 30, 2021



It is paradoxical that today, and more ways in the future, the foundation of delivering the human touch in recruiting is artificial intelligence. This week we will explore the AI HR Paradox with Ben Eubanks, principal analyst at Lighthouse Research and author of Artificial Intelligence for HR: Use AI to Support and Develop a Successful Workforce.


Ben will discuss the overall benefits of AI and how HR leaders should be focused on leveraging AI to remove repetitive tasks and data analysis vs looking to AI as a total solution. He will also share what tasks are better suited for AI and what tasks should remain in human hands. 


We will discuss how when done well AI should surface to recruiters the moments to take action resulting in a highly personalized and engaged human experience between job seeker and recruiter. 


Ben will also share examples from global organizations that are getting this right today and what we can expect in the future.


We will discuss:

  1. What are the benefits of AI in recruiting?

  2. How does AI improve the role of the recruiter?

  3. How can AI improve the experience of the job seeker?

  4. What human skills are irreplaceable?

  5. What challenges can arise from AI?

As always- no sales pitches. No boring presentations. Just good conversation.
