In this 2023 year-end wrap up on talent acquisition news, SHRM Online Manager/Editor, Talent Acquisition Roy Maurer quotes Year Up Founder and former CEO Gerald Chertavian on how AI could influence skills-first hiring.
"AI is the catalyst that will usher forward a positive era of skills-first hiring as long as employers continue to prioritize this shift," he said.
Chertavian said he understands that something as powerful as AI can be misused. But he also trusts that people will recognize when that is happening and correct it.
"I promise you that AI will do more good than bad and push the skills-first movement beyond anything we have ever seen," he said.
