Recruiting is traditionally a labor-intensive task. Talent acquisitions teams need to spend time sourcing, screening and scrutinizing candidates in order to ensure they select the right one for both the company and the job.
The task that typically takes the most time is screening through endless lists of names, resumes and candidate credentials. On average, talent acquisition teams spend up to thirty minutes per applicant. This process not only takes time, but it is also where unwanted biases and subjectivity seep into the screening process. In order to go through resumes faster, recruiters often focus on “canned traits”, such as a specific education institutions or degree background, rather than whether they are effective at their job.
These problems are now compounded by the inability to conduct face to face interviews due to the current COVID-19 pandemic and the requirements to stay at home.
