BirdDogHR Offers High-Demand Artificial Intelligence Features

DES MOINES, IOWA – September 11, 2018 – BirdDogHR™, the leader in talent management solutions for the construction, engineering and skilled trades industries, offers product features incorporating artificial intelligence (AI) within the BirdDogHR Applicant Tracking System (ATS). By automating time consuming basic tasks like evaluating screening question responses and candidate communication, the ATS provides time-saving AI capabilities to accelerate hiring and maintain hiring compliance.

Specific AI functionality includes screening questions to score candidates and funnel them into pre-determined categories based on their provided responses and qualifications. Recruiters and hiring managers alike can customize questions and desired responses that will determine candidate priority within the ATS. Compliance-focused features in the applicant tracking system called candidate batching take these scores and hide the candidates who do not meet certain requirements, so federal contractors are not liable to report on them to the Office of Federal Contract Compliance (OFCCP). These AI features expedite candidate communication, as follow-up emails are automatically sent to candidates after applying based on their responses and resume qualifications. Recruiters and hiring managers benefit by spending time with candidates that are best qualified for the posted position.

“Data-driven AI helps ensure data-driven hiring decisions,” said BirdDogHR VP of Product, Chris Lennon. “The AI within the system helps to alleviate interviewer bias that can impact hiring decisions and builds a more trustworthy employer brand.”

“Every industry is moving at rapid pace, especially from a hiring perspective,” said BirdDogHR CEO, Todd Skokan. “BirdDogHR is positioned to meet and exceed market demands for high-compliance industries by providing the tools managers need to move away from tedious manual recruiting processes. AI gives managers the ability to direct their focus towards strategizing for the future.”

The BirdDogHR Talent Management System automates, simplifies and streamlines workforce processes including recruiting, employee onboarding, employee performance management, learning and succession planning. Recruiting top talent is easy with a simple apply process and enhanced job distribution. Onboarding automates manual paperwork and gets employees on the job faster.
