Sberbank plans to use Artificial Intelligence to evaluate the prospects of being dismissed or quitting for candidates at the stage of considering their CVs. According to the bank management, this will help to reduce costs and handle high staff turnover.
The new initiative was revealed by Andrei Chertok, Director of the Sberbank Center for Competence Development and Data Research, RBC reports. Currently, the power of AI will only be used in the pilot mode for evaluating the potential of being dismissed or quitting for applicants in sizeable categories of staff (customer and sales support in the bank’s offices). It is possible that in the future the competences of intelligent robotic systems may be expanded.
In the meantime, AI will analyze CVs of potential candidates and other open sources of information about them.
According to Worki founder and CEO Pavel Guzhikov, using job seekers’ Big Data is one of the major trends in the Russian labor market right now, along with using mobile solutions and geolocations.
“Many processes are being automated; however, transformation will not happen in a year or three years,” Pavel Guzhikov commented.
Last spring, Worki, a service profiting from smart automated search for non-managerial staff, was acquired by Mail.Ru Group.
