Remote working has officially become a mainstay for companies large and small. Just one year ago, working from home may have been seen as a perk, but in a pandemic-fueled society it has become a necessity.
Research has found that many workers want to continue remote working even after the virus is no longer an issue, marking a permanent shift to a more flexible work environment for many.
This means organizations will need to reevaluate their hiring and management strategies, which can be done seamlessly through predictive intelligence and AI.
Deciding which jobs can be done remotely and those that need to be done in person is the first step in recruiting new talent.
AI can help business leaders identify how to decide how the role will fit into workplace operations. Does it require a lot of teamwork and collaboration? Can the job be done remotely or does the worker need to be on-site? Which market would offer the best talent pool? And so forth.
For instance, if you are a business looking for a software engineer, you may turn to Boston since there is an influx of tech talent in the city. However, the cost for talent is higher and supply is lower due to increased competition, so you could look into the talent pool in a tech hub that goes largely ignored, like Greenville, South Carolina.
AI tools can help employers identify the best choice by evaluating the company’s culture, the role requirements and can recommend which potential candidate would make the ideal fit without uncertainty.
