Finland: university thesis examines new technology based recruitment methods

In May 2018, Reija Oksanen at the University of Tampere Faculty of Management presented a Master’s thesis on new technology based recruitment methods that in particular examines those phases in the recruitment process that can use artificial intelligence (AI). The goal of the research is to broaden the knowledge base surrounding new technology based recruitment methods and especially AI and to this end it examined how these new methods were being used within Finland’s Human Resource Management (HRM) community. The research shows that although the HRM community does welcome the possibilities arising from these new methods it also highlights the need to avoid slipping into mechanistic recruitment methods instead of using these new methods to free up more time for human interaction. This however will only be possible if the HRM community fully understands all aspects of these new technologies.
