This week on T3 I take a look at recruiting artificial intelligence solution Ideal. Ideal uses artificial intelligence to screen resumes, uncover past applicants for new roles and initiate candidate outreach.
All of this is done seamlessly within your existing ATS. So, Ideal is a technology solution that you actually don’t see. It runs in the background and automatically ranks and contacts candidates to begin the screen process with your team doing nothing.
Ideal will automate low-level recruiting tasks, increasing the capacity of your recruiting team to work on more strategic projects. Every single applicant, for every single position, gets analyzed no matter where they come into the recruiting process. Ideal’s artificial intelligence will then quickly move top candidates through the recruiting funnel.
What I like about Ideal?
– Ideal works with new applicants and automatically will rediscover old applicants within your ATS database and also reach out to those candidates for positions you post where there might be a fit. This will automatically increase the value of your ATS.
– Having A.I. do initial screen, score, and reach out will eliminate a ton of initial selection bias that your own team isn’t even aware they have, which will result in many candidates making to the next level of your process that would never have before.
– Every single applicant is auto-scored from A to D. “A” candidates automatically get contacted and screened by Ideal, while B through D level candidates might get recommended for jobs you have that are a closer fit for their skill set. If the recruiting team needs to go beyond A candidates, they can have Ideal screen next level candidates they select.
– This tech is invisible to your team. No additional sign-on, no additional training, it’s fully integrated into your ATS and works with your current technology and process. There is a system dashboard for the TA leader so you can see the data behind the scenes to ensure it’s working as it should.
I think solutions like Ideal are how most organizations are going to test the A.I. waters in HR and TA technology. If you are doing high volume hiring, Ideal is almost a must try! The cost of the solution is dependent on your candidate volume, but even for enterprise players, it seemed very reasonable.
I would definitely demo and speak to the Ideal team about how this solution could impact your hiring and process. I think TA leaders at all sized organizations will find this pretty attractive and want to do some testing with it!
T3 – Talent Tech Tuesday – is a weekly series here at The Project to educate and inform everyone who stops by on a daily/weekly basis on some great recruiting and sourcing technologies that are on the market. None of the companies who I highlight are paying me for this promotion. There are so many really cool things going on in the tech space and I wanted to educate myself and share what I find.
