Patrick Lynch Speaks at The Atlanta NAAAHR Chapter Meeting

Pat AI presentation

Patrick Lynch presented “Artificial Intelligence: How It Will Impact HR Today And In The Future to the Atlanta chapter of NAAAHR (National Association of African Americans in HR).

The Talent Horizon

"Computers are useless. They can only give you the answers" -Pablo Picasso 

Talent Trend: Skills-based Recruiting   

What does Google, Bank of America, Nordstrom, Hilton and Chipotle have in common? They're hiring candidates without a college degree as a requirement and focusing on Skills-based hiring. 

Skills-based Hiring is not just a talent management fad it's the future of human resources . In CMP's 2018 Future of Work OI Global Research Study, most talent managers said that the most significant people challenge was hiring new talent. 

In resume-based recruiting, talent managers do assess skills—they just do so later in the process. As
a result, they often waste time interviewing candidates who are not well suited for the job.

Skills-based recruiting consists of nothing more than matching skills to hiring needs. For it to work, your organization needs to pursue all of the information required to assess the match between candidate skills and job requirements.

Survey question , is your organization ready to set specific skills and competency requirements for a job rather than rely solely on candidates' credentials? Survey
