As a discipline, recruiting is particularly buzzy, driven by innovation in strategies and technologies alike. Over the last few years, two significant trends stand out: artificial intelligence (AI) and diversity and inclusion (D&I). Both a long time coming, these continue to gain momentum, influencing the space and as the use cases roll in, demonstrating value across organizations of all sizes and industries. Seemingly dissimilar on the surface, AI and D&I have taken the space by storm, releasing a torrent of tech advancements, transformative tactics and new research. According to last year’s Deloitte Global Human Capital Trends report, some 33 percent of surveyed teams using some form of AI technology to drive HR solutions. At the same time, McKinsey & Company found that gender-diverse organizations are 15 percent more like to outperform their competitors, while ethnically-diverse organizations are 34 percent more likely to do so.
