The whole thing sounds like pie in the sky or just something for corporations? All the options presented are already available today, some even free of charge. “Robot Recruiting” is the keyword. But what is behind the buzzword?

Robot recruiting and how SMEs can use it

With the Term Robot recruiting describes a partial automation and support of the recruiting process. In some cases, the media describe this as if the jobs would soon no longer be the same HRbut assign an algorithm. It is not that far yet.

Perhaps you can look at it analogously to driving a car: There are more and more driver assistance systems that make it easier to get from A to B. Autonomous driving is just around the corner. But there is also a crucial difference: When driving from A to B, the car mainly communicates with other things – other cars, traffic signs, crash barriers or traffic jam reports. Always communicate when recruiting People commonality. In this respect, the analogy of driver assistance systems fits better.

Which systems are available?

An important part of robotic recruiting is the use of big data or smart data (since this includes the possibility of using big data). Algorithms support the efficiency of Big Data applications. Matching (jobs with applicants or vice versa and applicants with corporate cultures) is based on algorithms, for example.

  1. Job software: The mentioned job advertisement software is based on the evaluation of over one million job advertisement texts and their success in the form of applications. Conversely, the probability of success of the entered job advertisement text is then calculated in real time. Such software is currently only available in English and therefore can only be used to a limited extent by SMEs. The distribution of job advertisements at the push of a button to 250 job portals is already used by almost 20 percent of companies with fewer than 500 employees and is called multi-job ) posting. Here the prices start at 300 to 400 € per ad.
  2. Parsing: The described automatic reading of CVs is called parsing and is now part of the range of solutions for many applicant management systems, but also available separately on request. This possibility is expressed by 82 percent of SMEs when choosing a software E-Recruiting Software Report considered important or very important.
  3. Active Sourcing and Matching Software: The suggestions for suitable applicants, which are automatically received by 10 clocks at Susanne E., come, for example, from search jobs at XING. Of these, five are included in the premium account for approximately 7 Euro / month. The search jobs are part of the active sourcing activities which almost every third SME already undertakes to attract interesting talents. The matching software, which you make the suggestions for the suitable vacancies, is based on algorithms and is currently not available separately but only within a project.
  4. The software for creating a personality profile analysis: The software for creating a personality profile analysis and the appropriate eMail- Suggestions is a particularly impressive application of smart data: from the “digital footprint”, that is, from data that an Internet user has left in various sources, a personality profile can be created with sometimes frightening accuracy. How it works is a trade secret. But as a freemium solution, SMEs can also try it out for themselves, initially free of charge.
  5. Talent search engines: Big data is also used by so-called talent search engines, which pull together publicly-available information about potential candidates from many different social networks and communities and make it available to recruiters and HR staffers as an easily searchable database of more than 1,5 billion records. The prices for this start at medium-friendly 300 € per month. There are also some algorithms included, which calculate the willingness to change and readiness of the candidates.
  6. Speech analysis technology during telephone interview: The “robot telephone interview” is based on language analysis technology and decoded written and spoken language and provides insights into the interplay of personality, communication and behavior. The software uses language and text to draw a valid picture of applicants.

In sum, there are some free and cost-effective solutions that SMEs can also use to digitize their recruiting processes.

What are the limits of robot recruiting?

Recruiting is increasingly caught between man and machine. But if you want to carry out a process computer-aided, then you should use the successful ones Strategies know, otherwise you only reproduce a bad recruiting process digitally. The result is then not ideal for either humans or machines.

Only one in five SMEs know in detail the source of the settings. In other words, most companies today do not know what has worked in recruitment and what is not. And if you do not know the success patterns, you can not depict them as computer-assisted.
