Pune: As the future of Human Resources (HR) industry is changing towards automation, the process of job interviews happens virtually, video-recorded, indexed, tagged and rated. The city-based consultant startups are also focusing on using Artificial Intelligence to make their work more effective and easier. Earlier, organisations trusted third parties to bring in the talent they required. However, when a prospect was hired, mismatch of expectations would crop up. This often led the companies to spend a lot of resources on training, only to eventually find that there was a clear disconnect between the employee and the employer.

Monjin, a city-based and four-year-old recruiting startup, created its own interviewing platform, Monjin engine, via AI where the interviewers meet the candidates live through Intelligent video scheduling. “The Monjin engine matches expectations where senior industry individuals review prospective employees for a company. Say, a corporation shortlists 50 to 100 employees. All of them come on to this platform where the interviewers and candidates are matched through AI for an interview. The interested candidates record video interviews and the AI process helps the experts to analyse, index, rate and tag them. It can either share within or outside an organisation this data and it can be streamed across various devices. the interview is indexed, rated, tagged by skills, and subskills, by behaviour and by competency. There is also a summary video as a part of an assessment, which is delivered by the expert. The platform allows the candidates to harness the power of digital interviewing to reach hiring companies faster, showcase themselves better while multiplying their efforts, which would never be otherwise possible with a paper resume,” said Abhijit Kashyape, co-founder of Monjino.

He further added, “Intelligent process automation is coming into play, which includes AI and related new technology advances, which can help deliver consistent people processes - something that has eluded many HR ops teams given the dynamic nature of the requests they receive. . Almost half of hire to retire tasks could be automated with current in play technologies with process changes.”

According to an expert in recruitment, Sapna Doshi, “Digital recruiting is entering various aspects of skills, geography and industry agnostic model where the focus is only to deliver quality. Currently, each and every recruiting company is catering to sectors like IT, ITES, captives, cyber security and BFSI, retail, pharmaceutical, manufacturing and many more. Digital recruiting is a true game changer where the organisations receive pre-screened and pre-vetted profiles, which reduce the evaluation time per candidate and that is the biggest advantage for them. It also speeds up the interview process with ‘accuracy’ and provides results in terms of technical demonstrations and report formats. It also helps the organisation’s manifest with great interviewing results, candidates to unlock their potential and encourage the experienced professionals to mould within their domain.”
