October 12, 2023, Cleveland, OH — AMS, the global talent solutions business, has announced the findings of its first ‘Talent Leaders’ Attitudes Towards AI’ survey. The survey, part of AMS’s Tech Translated series, investigates the attitudes to using AI in talent acquisition across industries. Results show that despite 70% of talent leaders already embracing AI for simple tasks, only 20% use it for talent acquisition, with 50% remaining cautious due to the impact regulation will have on future AI use.
The survey demonstrates that the full capabilities of new tools to drive talent strategies are not yet being embraced as leaders grapple with integration and policy, despite widespread positive attitudes towards the potential for AI-powered technologies. 30% of talent leaders are ‘extremely enthusiastic’ towards AI and a further 40% rate themselves as ‘optimistic,’ with none saying they are opposed to its implementation in their businesses.
Additionally, 20% of respondents said that AI is having a profound impact on their talent acquisition strategies, with a further 35% acknowledging it could affect their strategy in future.
Commenting on the statistics and the state of AI in talent acquisition, Jonathan Kestenbaum, Managing Director, Tech Strategy and Partnerships stated:
“We’ve only scratched the surface of AI’s capabilities. While the technology is going to get better and easier to manage, companies need to prepare their people and processes for its integration, research local laws and regulations around AI compliance, and determine the next logical step for them in defining how AI can support in solving some of their business problems.”
