Artificial Intelligence, ethics and the world of talent

The emergence of AI has the potential to radically transform talent acquisition and retention. From enhanced efficiency and improved candidate matching to smoother application journeys and predictive culture fits, up to 80% of American workplaces are already using AI in some form for employment decision making.

However, the implementation of any new technology comes with potential downsides. The use of AI in talent acquisition poses several ethical challenges, particularly around issues of bias and discrimination. While AI aims to minimize biases, it can actually amplify existing ones if not calibrated and monitored correctly.

In this article, AMS’ Head of Technology & Analytics Advisory, Annie Hammer, and RingCentral Chief Innovation Officer, Kira Makagon, explore the new ethical considerations brought on by the emergence of AI in talent technology, and how TA teams can be prepared for the change.
