International Conference on AI in Work, Innovation, Productivity and Skills

AI for labour market matching

Feb 23, 2022 | 2:45 PM - 3:45 PM


One of the key ingredients of a well-functioning labour market is the efficiency with which workers are matched to vacancies. One of the reasons this matters, is because it affects the unemployment rate. The harder it is, and the longer it takes, to match workers to vacancies, the higher unemployment will be. The quality of matches is of equal importance, because skills mismatch can harm productivity and innovation, and result in higher turnover and recruitment costs. This session will explore the use of artificial intelligence in labour market matching - by human resource managers, public and private employment services, as well as in the platform economy. The goal is to identify both the potential of AI for improving both the efficiency and the quality of labour market matching, as well as the risks, and the regulatory gaps that would need to be addressed.
