Generative AI in recruitment is promising and diverse!

Despite great interest, (generative) AI in recruitment is still in its infancy!

In the world of recruitment, there is tremendous interest in generative artificial intelligence (AI). However, its actual adoption is still in the early stages. Many providers are evaluating application possibilities and setting up operational pilots.

Although operationalization is slow, the potential applications of generative AI across the entire field of recruitment are promising and diverse. To illustrate, we have listed a number of examples that demonstrate how generative AI can be used to innovate the recruitment of permanent and temporary staff.

  1. Creation of job descriptions
    Generative AI can help automate and optimize the process of creating job descriptions. Using AI, companies can quickly generate attractive job descriptions tailored to specific requirements and company culture. An example is the latest release of SAP Fieldglass (VMS), which supports recruitment by drafting job profiles in all desired languages.
  2. Candidate engagement
    AI technologies can personalize and make the interaction with interested candidates more efficient. This can range from automatically answering frequently asked questions to providing personalized updates about the application process, which can significantly improve the candidate experience.
  3. Recruitment bots
    Chatbots powered by generative AI can provide 24/7 support to candidates. They can answer questions, collect feedback, and even help schedule interviews, streamlining the recruitment process and reducing recruiters’ workload.
  4. Creation of onboarding documents
    The generation of personalized onboarding documents such as contracts and screening documents can be automated with AI. This ensures consistency and reduces the time required to prepare these documents, making the process faster and less prone to errors.
  5. Labor market data and insights
    Generative AI can quickly and accurately analyze data to provide insights that help in making better sourcing strategies. This can range from identifying trends in candidate preferences to predicting the optimal media strategy. An example is the recently launched version of, which supports you in creating the job text based on labor market data, and also provides the vacancy with appropriate recruitment advice and a media plan, all targeted at the specific audience.

Although the implementation of generative AI within recruitment is still in its infancy, the potential benefits are not to be underestimated. From streamlining administrative processes to improving the candidate experience, AI applications can revolutionize how organizations attract and retain both permanent and temporary talent. Recruitment will quickly change with these applications and their integration within the entire process.
