The Effects of Using AI to Assess Applicants in the Netherlands and EU

Natalie Pierce, co-chair of Littler's Robotics, AI and Automation Practice group and Eric van Dam from Littler's office in Amsterdam (CLINT Littler), discuss the exciting opportunities and challenges resulting from the use of artificial intelligence (AI) tools in HR decision-making and reporting. Specific examples are provided of companies that are experiencing success in employing AI into such functions as recruitment and hiring; and the benefits – such as maximizing your talent pool and productivity efficiencies – that can be garnered for employers.

Natalie and Eric explore how to overcome impediments to adoption, such as algorithmic bias, and what organizations can do to mitigate those risks. They review the intersection of AI with privacy rights under the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the critical role of transparency in the integration of AI tools. The podcast addresses all these issues and considers the repercussions through the lens of European Union and Dutch law.
