Mya Prepares to UNLEASH Its Vision of the Future of Work
Next week, we’ll be at UNLEASH World in Paris to showcase major platform and product updates. In an era of globalization, digitalization, and continuous shifts in demographics, the HR sphere has expanded way beyond the traditional operational role, and is very much an enabler of business success. While the value of AI specifically has become more and more apparent, we still saw many analysts and vendors at HR Tech wondering, “What next?”
The truth is, we see plenty of valid skepticism around chatbots. Too often, conversations can feel disingenuous to candidates, and information can be hard to attain if the bot was not coded well. At UNLEASH this year, we are aiming to help put an end to hesitations when it comes to choosing whether or not to roll out an AI-powered recruiting solution.
The argument for using chatbots in recruiting grows stronger by the day, but companies need to be smart about it. No one wins if a poorly planned AI solution is rushed out and ends in disaster. To be successful, businesses need to look at how AI will be used, what goals they have in mind for the solution, and what the potential risks are. From there, recruiters can map out a plan to make the chatbot most effective, and install guardrails to limit fallout when a virtual assistant doesn’t have an answer for a candidate.
The theme for the show this year is UNLEASH your people. As we saw at HR Tech, this continues to be an evergreen topic in HR. It’s no different for those in the recruiting space, as people are still the most valuable asset when it comes to hiring.
While the human touchpoint will NEVER completely leave the world of recruiting. Mya believes technology, and more specifically AI, can help augment recruiters, giving them the tools to become more efficient and effective in their roles.
AI and recruiting will be a compelling topic at UNLEASH World this year, and we have outlined below some of the panels and discussions we are most excited about. Our fearless leader Eyal Grayevsky, industry titan Josh Bersin, and other noteworthy speakers in recruitment and automation make the list.
