CEIPAL – Leveraging robust AI-powered recruitment software for staffing firms & corporates


The overwhelming adoption of AI can be tied to its many benefits which center on making recruitment easier, more accurate, and efficient. AI enables recruiters and hiring managers to assess and interview candidates with much more ease compared to traditional methods. Research also shows that 96% of HR managers believe AI can improve talent acquisition and retention significantly. For the last several years, finding the right candidate in high demand talent pools has been highlighted as one of the biggest obstacles to attracting top talent (LinkedIn Global Recruiting Survey 2016), and AI has evolved accordingly to help solve this problem. Implementing artificial intelligence in talent acquisition goes beyond accessing candidate data, but rather leveraging it at scale —helping companies find the best candidate for the job.
