5 ways AI helps in talent development

Artificial Intelligence (AI) has changed the ways global businesses operate. It helps improve every process a business partakes, including talent development.

Combatting the threat of wiping away jobs, AI can be used otherwise to strengthen teams and get them productive. More companies use automated tools to equip their employees, measure performance, and provide personalized training programs.

AI-enabled outsourcing is also on the rise as a way to keep up with this advancement, helping small and medium businesses with this transformation. 

There are many advantages AI offers in terms of talent development and staffing. Indu Badlani, CEO of Staffing Expert, discusses these in the 454th episode of the Outsource Accelerator Podcast.

The impact of AI on businesses

The convergence of AI in businesses resulted in a paradigm shift that resonates across sectors. 

According to a study by McKinsey & Company, the use of AI at work reached around 50% to 60% in the past few years.

For businesses, AI has a significant impact on many levels. One of these impacts is on the bottom line. While the skills gap still prevails in global recruitment, AI high-performers can easily hire and match candidates with their desired roles.

This advancement allows businesses to make better decisions, increase productivity, and reduce costs in return.

AI’s role in talent development

Indu explained that Staffing Expert aims to “[hire an] AI-empowered, emergent workforce.” 

Specifically, they provide teams who “are more comfortable using technology as an extension of their thought process” apart from the right skill sets clients look for when outsourcing.

Indu believes enabling AI in their teams can “aid [in] almost any desired outcomes” of their clients, whether in design or sales.

Apart from this, AI can best help talent development in the following ways.

Skills-based recruitment

One of the models offered by Staffing Expert is recruitment, hiring, and workforce management with support from AI.

Primarily, recruiters now use AI in skills-based recruitment and hiring. Businesses can identify the best candidates for a particular role by parsing data from resumes, cover letters, and social media profiles.

Moreover, AI-enabled recruitment allows companies to tap the usually overlooked and fresh talent pools they have yet to consider.

AI-empowered productivity

Indu added that many AI tools in the market help teams “think out of the box [and] look at all the options [available].” Through these tools, they can overcome the challenges of looking for another angle or other ways to do their work.

This approach further increases employeeengagement and productivity on the team’s part.

Upskilling and reskilling

AI is critical in upskilling and reskilling employees through personalization and gamification.

AI-enabled platforms can motivate employees to develop new skills. These platforms can track progress, identify areas for improvement, and suggest relevant courses or training programs that can help employees improve their skills.

Global collaboration

Being in the outsourcing sphere for 13 years, Indu emphasizes that successful global collaboration “can drive transformation.”

AI is also enabling global collaboration. It aids in coordinating global projects more effectively through online tools. This collaboration enables companies to capture the best talent, regardless of location.

Overall digital transformation

AI is a key component of any digital transformation initiative.

Businesses can become more agile and responsive by automating recruitment and talent development processes. AI can identify trends and patterns in recruitment, hiring, and training employees to prepare them for the future.
