1Despite a Lack of Deployment, AI Viewed as Top Talent Management Tool
While most organizations recognize the potential for artificial intelligence (AI) solutions as game-changing talent-management tools, comparatively few companies are actually deploying AI for this purpose, according to a recent survey from Eightfold.ai. The resulting “Talent Intelligence and Management Report 2018” indicates that many enterprises still rely upon legacy tech systems to solve staffing-related challenges. Those that are taking advantage of AI, however, are gaining a competitive edge in employee recruitment, development and retention. More than 1,000 CEOs and HR officers—as well as just over 200 employees—took part in the research. The following slide show presents survey findings, with charts provided courtesy of Eightfold.ai.

Forty-six percent of respondents said their company uses personalized job descriptions as a means of solving talent challenges, while 42 percent cited applicant tracking systems.
4AI Perceived as Career Development Driver
Despite the fact that AI isn’t deployed across the board at enterprises, 72 percent of respondents believe recruiters can take advantage of this technology to find qualified candidates more quickly.
