Technological drivers in Recruitment 4.0 

In this blog post, we’ll cover the transitions in ideology shifts and recruitment as a wider industry and also explore how EVa.ai applies the forefront technologies to thrive in recruitment 4.0  

From local hosting to Cloud-based solutions

On-demand services, computer networks, storage, applications or resources accessed via the internet and through another provider’s shared cloud computing infrastructure.

1. Investments in Technology 

Then:

Committing to long-term technology contracts

With EVA.ai:

Cloud-based solutions allow users to pay monthly fees across tiers of functionality. Flexibility to scale up, or down with technology during the organisational journey has immense benefits.  

2. Financial Implications  

Then:

Large investments in the cost of acquiring locally housed hardware + software

With EVA.ai:

Cloud computing cuts out the high cost of hardware. You simply pay as you go and enjoy a subscription-based model that’s kind to your cash flow.

  • The cost of system upgrades, new hardware and software may be included in your contract
  • You no longer need to pay wages for expert staff
  • Your energy consumption costs may be reduced

3. The power of Real-time 

Then:

Static tech – complex updating process that leaves your HR dept or recruiters twiddling their thumbs

With EVA.ai:

The beauty of cloud computing is that the servers are off-premise, out of sight and out of your hair. Suppliers take care of them for you and roll out regular software updates – including security updates – so you don’t have to worry about wasting time maintaining the system yourself. Leaving you free to focus on the things that matter, like growing your business

From Analytics to Machine Learning  

Machine learning is a method of data analysis that automates analytical model building. It is a branch of artificial intelligence based on the idea that systems can learn from data, identify patterns and make decisions with minimal human intervention.

1. Investments in Technology 

Then:

The percentage of reactive to passive candidates is clocked at about  80% to 20% respectively. 

With EVA.ai:

Proactive – passive candidates (80%)

Predict when candidates are likely to progress, based on semantic analysis, past recruiters’ decisions, and recruitment process selection outcomes. 

2. Machine Learning vs Analytics

Then:

Recruiter performance is driven by a combination of experience and industry insight 

With EVA.ai:

Supercharge your recruiters and perpetuate good practices with a technology that learns from previous decisions

EVA turns every recruiter or candidate decision into a continuous insight loop that becomes the heart of your recruitment processes.

Don’t let your successful hiring processes go to waste. EVA learns, tracks, and retains these hiring patterns and trends to feed EVA’s core intelligence and begin identifying ideal candidates for similar roles every time to build long-term recruiting strategies for your entire team.



From manual processes to Process Automation

A general technology term that is used to describe any process being automated through the use of computers and computer software. Processes that have been automated require less human intervention and less human time to deliver.

Use intelligent automation to effortlessly automate tedious, time-consuming tasks so your recruiters can focus on high-value work.

1.  Candidate Screening 

Then:

Manual screening and prescreening processes

With EVA.ai:

Automated and targeted conversations when the position is at the top of a candidate’s mind

A chatbot is artificial intelligence (AI) software that can simulate a conversation (or chat) with a user in natural language through messaging applications, websites, mobile apps or through the telephone.

1. Call logs and processing  

Then:

Manual admin to update the database with phone call logs and outcomes 

With EVA.ai:

In-real time, chatbots can update candidate profiles so that recruiters can view the updated info, view the conversation as it’s occurring run, that update info can be automatically used to match that candidate to a job

2. Call logs and processing  

Then:

Manual admin to update the database with phone call logs and outcomes 

With EVA.ai:

In-real time, chatbots can update candidate profiles so that recruiters can view the updated info, view the conversation as it’s occurring run, that update info can be automatically used to match that candidate to a job

3. Candidate/Client Relationships 

Then:

Break downs in managing multiple candidate expectations during the hiring process  

With EVA.ai:

Complete transparency – Candidate portal to where people can view current applications (increase transparency), ai-powered job recommendations, and access a chatbot 24/7

From Multi-channel to Omni-channel

This revolves around your target audience customer and creates a single user experience across your brand by unifying every user touchpoint that accounts for the spillover between channels

1. Linkedin Reliant

Then:

Recruiters relied on Linkedin to source the best talent  

With EVA.ai:

The ability to scour job boards, integrate with video posting, plug our chatbot on your website and across multiple communication channels 

2. Reactive comms 

Then:

Traditional focus via email and SMS

With EVA.ai:

Launch new channels of engagement; Recruiters can view the conversations – even as they’re happening – and decided whether or not to move forward with the individuals interviewed.

Then:

Low differentiation – candidate receiving loads of messages in their inbox from recruiters

With EVA.ai:

Launch new channels of engagement; Recruiters can view the conversations – even as they’re happening – and decided whether or not to move forward with the individuals interviewed.

From social media branding to targeted candidate attraction

Personalisation, omnichannel journeys, and user journeys are important to retain the attention of candidates. Understanding what messages to candidates at every point of their journey mean that you are more likely to convert candidates by giving them the relevant, real-time and up-to-date job information regardless of brand touchpoint 

1. Social Media 

Then:

Social media (Facebook and Instagram) used as a tool to create a presence

With EVA.ai:

Drive targeted attraction and engage meaningfully with gen x and millennials by curating interactive content that drives them to apply for your positions  

2. Reach 

Then:

Normal job ads reach just 20% of suitable candidates

With EVA.ai:

Targeted attraction campaigns – passive candidates present a huge opportunity – EVA takes your message to the other 80%

3. Social Conversions

Then:

Conventional thinking is that social media should just be used to attract and funnel candidates to your main careers site, where candidates can then apply for your role. While this can still work, in some circumstances this can prove to be ineffective.

With EVA.ai:

Launch chatbot directly on facebook messenger or Instagram pm for a seamless experience that takes ⅓ of the time

Chatbots role:

  •  A seamless experience with in-app chatbot conversations
  •  Screen and transform boring job apps into conversations
