2022 Top HR Product Eightfold Job Intelligence Engine

What it is: The Eightfold Job Intelligence Engine provides an AI-powered foundation for role definitions that dynamically learns from internal and external talent insights. By replacing archaic and ineffective job descriptions with centrally defined roles, the tool combines AI, automation and human expertise for better decision-making. Its key benefits are. 1. Accelerated time to hire: Reduced time to write job descriptions, define role requirements and calibrate new requisitions; 2. Consistent talent standard: For hiring, internal mobility and talent development; 3. Succession planning: Based on role definition and skills insights; 4. Future-ready workforce: Align roles with the most in-demand skills for any role and industry.

Why we like it: The Job Intelligence Engine has one mission: to help organizations fill their open positions quickly and with internal talent. We like this tool’s robust library of roles and skills—millions, they claim—and that it looks beyond data found in siloes created by legacy systems. It relies on rich and complex technology, to be sure, but large organizations likely would be able to take advantage of its global data, dynamic view of all jobs on a single AI platform and relative ease of use to add skills and otherwise personalize insights.
