Did you know that 7 in 10 candidates planning to use GenAI to complete applications and assessments in the coming months? TA teams are already reporting a significant increase in the volume of applications and a mismatch in candidate performance at later stages of the application process. And as adoption grows, this challenge is only likely to get worse.

But according to a recent poll by Hung Lee, only 9% of TA professionals currently have a policy on candidate usage of GenAI. And the number of those who are clearly communicating that policy to candidates is likely even lower.  

Failing to get your policy right could have consequences that range from destabilising the equity of your hiring process and setting back diversity efforts years to completely destroying the efficacy of your sift.
