Big Data, Bigger Risk: Recognizing and Managing the Perils of Using Algorithms in Recruiting and Hiring

Employers increasingly are turning to machine learning algorithms to source, recruit, screen, select, and manage talent. These tools have the potential to significantly streamline the recruiting and hiring process, from identifying qualified passive candidates to efficiently winnowing down the increasingly large volume of applications that employers now regularly receive. Algorithms also can perform the candidate evaluations that normally are performed by human resources representatives or hiring managers, like analyzing writing samples and assessing proficiency examinations, or matching job candidates with appropriate positions based on the candidates’ skills and the positions’ requirements.

While these tools can reduce the time and costs associated with finding, selecting, promoting, and retaining talent, they also have the potential to create legal risk for employers. That legal risk arises from new legislation, interest from the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission and other federal and state agencies, and litigation.
