Module 5: The Tech Behind Talent Analytics, Part 1

  • Dr. Amber Wigmore Alvarez, Chief Talent Officer, Highered EFMD

The incorporation of highly advanced technologies for talent recruitment is a fundamental change that is taking place in global HR. Do you have the tools and resources in place, as well as the expertise within the department, to support recruiters’ data-driven strategies? This module will start with an understanding of the functionality of recruiters’ Application Tracking Systems (ATS) and their direct link with the technology that aims to accelerate matching with relevant candidates, such as CV optimization.

Tasks previously requiring human intelligence such as visual perception, language translation, speech and text comprehension are now being performed by AI-engineered features with a high degree of accuracy and are continually being improved upon with machine learning. This technology supports employers’ Diversity, Equity & Inclusion (DEI) goals as it allows for candidate profile anonymization (i.e. name, school, employer, date of birth, etc.) and bias removal.

Learn how HR Tech is revolutionizing today’s candidate experience and understand the impact that this will have on your talent’s placement. Other HR Tech, such as Game-based assessments (GBAs) and the automation of employee referral programs in connection with Linkedin networks, are being used across all industries and will also be discussed during this module. Ensure that you are savvy and articulate on the latest technology in order to effectively prepare your talent for success.
