Artificial intelligence is changing the way that companies engage job
candidates, but recruiters still play a critical role.
By Leslie Shaffer
Fears that technology, particularly artificial intelligence
(AI), would eliminate the job of recruiters have not come to
pass, but technology is spurring an evolution of the role.
" It's clear now that the age of thinking that the
recruiter's role is going to be redundant is really not the
case at all, " says Tamara Sigerhall, managing consultant
at Korn Ferry Professional Search.
In fact, recent in-house research from Korn Ferry shows
that 78 per cent of the RPO provider's recruiters are not
worried about the impact of AI.
" It's no longer feared. It probably ironically makes the
role of the recruiter more human, " she adds. " The EQ
is going to be really important. The machines or the
technology are doing all of the other components. "
That's a sentiment that Melissa Yeo, global client
solutions director at Korn Ferry, also echoes. Yeo says that
it will be more important than ever for recruiters to work

beyond the technology's capabilities to make finding
qualified candidates easier.
" Traditionally, sourcing has been one of those laborious
and time-consuming roles for a recruiter, " she explains,
pointing to the number of candidates that need to be
sourced and phone screened. But AI can now take away
the more repetitive and time-consuming tasks and turn
the focus to candidate engagement, which is where the
recruiter role is evolving.
" It's no longer that difficult to actually find or identify
people. It's all out in the web, " Yeo says. " The challenge is
really how do you contact and engage with those people. "
In addition, the recruiter's role isn't just about assessing
skills and experience any longer. " Culture fit is becoming
more and more prevalent, and for a lot of our clients,
they don't just want people who can do the job-they
want people who love their job and love the organisation
and represent the organisation, " Yeo explains.
