Overall Eightfold AI fulfills all needed requirements for us as a global enterprise with diverse markets. And the most mature and most trusted AI algorithms from all vendors. The continued improvements are very helpful and the integration with the current system helps a lot! All companies need to hire top talent, increase diversity, and provide a compelling candidate experience - all efficiently. But current systems are not up to these challenges. These fragmented standalone solutions focus on process, not talent potential, and fail to account for inaccurate candidate assessment, recruiter bias, and deep understanding of skills.

Only with Eightfold AI do we manage to identify and attract internal talent for open positions. With Eightfold AI, recruiters become talent consultants who deliver top talent. Candidates enjoy a compelling, personalized experience from initial interaction to hire. Managers fill roles faster and with better insight into their pipelines. Executives benefit from improved diversity in hiring and recruiting costs. The full power of Eightfold AI elevates every talented professional and every candidate.
Using Eightfold AI means basically changing towards skill-based hiring. With the algorithms matching candidate profiles automatically and instantly against the required skills and capabilities for our positions, we are able to speed up our hiring processes, gain more qualified candidates, and deliver an even better candidate experience. Recruiters have talents from all sourcing channels available in one view and the platform suggests the best matching profiles immediately – which is also a huge opportunity to foster diverse hiring. Hiring Managers experience a completely different intake meeting, as they can see first candidates for their open positions in real time and get a lot more insights into talent markets, competition for the best talent, and the available skill sets of ideal candidates. External candidates discover completely new and maybe even surprisingly unexpected career opportunities by uploading their CV in the new global job search on the career website and getting immediately matched against all open positions at Bayer – or joining our talent pools.
Just recently the countries of the wave 3 of the AI4Talents Project went live. With now 37 countries on the Eightfold AI platform, this marks another huge step in embracing the future of talent acquisition. With the global implementation of Eightfold AI we created a true competitive advantage for Bayer in terms of identifying, attracting, and retaining the best talents for our businesses and the journey is continuing. All this was possible within a global pandemic, with no possibility to spend time together in one room for workshops as we used to successfully do in the past, but with everybody mainly working from home and balancing work and private life. This is a great testament to what is possible by leveraging digital technologies for collaboration and teamwork and will help us to further shape the new way of working at Bayer. We learned extremely fast by doing things differently, might it be completely transparent information and exchange in MsTeams across the community or being just flexible with asynchronous working.
Eightfold AI is able to identify the skills needed for an open position or project. We have invested a lot of time and resources in developing our people. But fragmented talent development programs - through disparate systems, different management and assessment styles, and an increasingly distributed workforce - have stifled the impact of these efforts. Eightfold AI Talent Management transforms our current investments in talent development into a fully integrated self-service experience for employees and managers. For employees, Eightfold AI Career Hub combines and curates your talent development initiatives to provide real-time, personalized development paths for each individual. For managers, Eightfold AI Talent Management provides an unbiased, real-time view of employee potential. Managers can identify the talent they can leverage for key initiatives, and talent teams can create internal talent pipelines and deploy formal programs to address gaps in the organization's skills and capabilities.

we would sooner start the negotiation with the German worker council, to get the needed approvals (German law) to use the technology also in Germany
