Despite the fact that there are currently more job openings than unemployed workers, 95% of organizations are still struggling to fill open positions – and many short-staffed businesses are turning to automated hiring software to close talent gaps. While often helpful, there is a catch: automating the hiring process can exclude applicants with untraditional employment histories like the formerly incarcerated and working mothers.
