Illinois: New AI Hiring Regulations Of It’s Kind

Starting January 1, 2020 Illinois will be the first state to implement AI hiring regulations. What does this mean? HR departments and hiring managers may not have full freedom to use AI video interviewing analysis and evaluation.

Some AI interviewing platforms claim to assess facial and voice expressions for applicant competency.

Other AI interviewing platforms claim to identify job qualification indicators.

Instead they are setting controls around how it can be used and how much information is shared with applicants.

There are still unknowns around how this will impact restaurants looking to hire, but one thing is certain. Planning for 2020 is going to prove to be more difficult than ever. 

Strategic Hospitality Search takes the recruiting burden off your shoulders and helps you navigate the increasing technological and legal parameters.


Do You Have A Guarantee On That Hire?

When you hire an applicant from an online job board, there’s no back-up plan if they don’t work out. Were they untruthful about their qualifications? You’re out of luck. Do they suddenly resign after a few weeks? You’ll have to repeat the long, costly process again.

Every SHS candidate brings a guaranteed evaluation period of six months. In rare events that a placed candidate resigns or is terminated for cause, we will present additional qualified candidates at no extra cost. And after the initial guarantee period, SHS provides recruiting support at reduced rates.

When you work with Strategic Hospitality Search, you have a confidant and partner – trusted experts who can give you answers and advice. Don’t go it alone with no Plan B, wasting valuable time that can be spent driving revenues and profits. Let us find talent, when talent matters most.
