This is really useful because you are knowing about yourself and what qualities I’m having too .

good advice very beneficial for future applications

Ive never thought to think of it like that before. Thinking about it most of it was very accurate and seeing of that down on the page has reminded me that i need to try and take more risks and be more confident in day to day life.

Spot on! So accurate , and really helpful point on where I can improve .

These insights were pretty much accurate and really made me think about myself and my strengths and weaknesses. I think that’s really important as applicants would like to know how the interview went and what they can improve from that. I wasn’t expecting such an insightful feedback from an interview. I am very impressed with this type of interview and hope this style takes place in most of the interviews.

I found it useful in that I always tend to speak my mind so it's great to know that is something that's valued in an employee.

It tells how I can improve

Thank you for the insights. It helps with my self awareness and understanding. It gives good comments that may help me improve my blindspots.

It was awesome experience with my interview and coaching. I am glad that I was part of it.I am really impressed with results of my answers that truly express my personality. I can’t wait to join Medibank.Thank you

I found it very useful as sometimes you try not to speak up too much especially in a group interview but must rely on others in team building projects to carry you slightly. In future I might speak up more in a group interview.

This was pretty accurate in the way I see myself which I found very interesting. Very clever tool.

It is useful. I will work with new people. Get to know more and better skill.s. Better myself and the surroundings. I know I am a happy person, but I will be happier to be part of a new challenge.

Yes I did find this useful but normally in a meeting I am in the so called front room . I am very interactive . I pride myself for delivering goods on time every time I thrive on a challenge and sourcing information. I do see customers as a priority in front of me. I have come from being self employed as a plumber and understand that timing is everything running a job site. I would like to add that my resume I have had prepared reads that I I would like to apply for store manager it should be trade manager or within your trade area. I thank you for your feedback and look forward to talking to you soon.

That’s was really good to ready an the tips were very helpful

You gave good valid points for my insights and I would I like to improve more at your workplace.

It was very accurate and helped me to consider my strengths and traits in a new way that I haven't seen before.

I found this useful, as I have discovered what areas I can improve in:)

I am amazed at how accurate this has been. So of the feedback is a bit confronting but I completely agree with it on a whole. This has confirmed the things I need to improve on and also confirmed what I believe are my strengths as well.

It let me know more about myself and understand myself better. It also helped me to understand how to improve.

It helps me to know which if the insights I can improve or do better

It was very useful I picked up that team work is important to you guys n you believe that when a group puts in idea that archive a lot so synergy all the way, you encourage your staff to initiate thinga what will build the Business n that I must not shy away from voicing my opinion n have questions. I'm highly motivated and eager to earn more once I'm part of they family

The response was very positive and encouraging.

It’s very interesting in hearing how other people may be thinking about my thoughts and actions.

Racial discrimination by algorithms or by people is harmful — but that’s where the similarities end.

Nudge management: applying behavioural science to increase knowledge worker productivity

Nudge management: applying behavioural science to increase knowledge worker productivity

Article abstract

Knowledge worker productivity is essential for competitive strength in the digital century. Small interventions based on insights from behavioural science makes it possible for knowledge workers to be more productive. In this point of view article, we outline and discuss a new management style which we label nudge management. Nudge is a concept in behavioural science, political theory and behavioural economics which proposes positive reinforcement and indirect suggestions as ways to influence the behaviour and decision making of groups or individuals. Nudging contrasts with other ways to achieve compliance, such as education, legislation or enforcement.

New Illinois employment law signals increased state focus on artificial intelligence in 2020

New Illinois employment law signals increased state focus on artificial intelligence in 2020

Why we love it

A read that provoked a bit of discussion amongst the team noting that the Act does not define “artificial intelligence,” a term that is often misunderstood and misapplied even by experts. How will they separate what traditional statistical analysis has been doing to what modern ML algorithms do?

Why it’s a must

Any attempt to classify ML as something different to just statistical analysis at scale will be fun to watch.

One can then argue just using averages and medians are a form of AI … Regression .. Correlations … AI bias … Ask BERT to fill in the missing pronoun in the sentence, “The doctor got into ____ car,” and the A.I. will answer, “his” not “her.” Feed GPT-2 the prompt, “My sister really liked the colour of her dress. It was ___” and the only colour it is likely to use to complete the thought is “pink.”

Background From Article

With the Artificial Intelligence Video Interview Act (effective January 1, 2020), or “AI Video Act,” Illinois has passed a groundbreaking new law regulating the use of artificial intelligence (“AI”) in video recruitment practices.

Employers increasingly seek tech-enabled tools to facilitate the hiring, evaluation, retention and development of their workforces. However, as the implementation of new technology grows, old problems, like bias and disparate impact, may surface in new ways. While the White House has encouraged a hands-off approach, the AI Video Act signals a trend towards state-level responses to this emerging technology and its risks.

Compared to HR teams across the country, banks know a thing or two when it comes to managing risk. Which is funny, as l’d argue that hiring a staff member is a much riskier proposition for a business than a bank having one of its customers default on a loan.

What I learnt from it

Imagine if your bank lent you money with the same process that your average recruiter used to hire for a role.

Why it’s a must

The same form would include a lot of probing questions, such as: Will you pay this money back on time? When have you borrowed in the past and paid back on time?Describe a time that you struggled to repay a loan and what you did about it?

Who should pay attention to this

Then, assuming your form piqued their interest, they would bring you in for one on one meeting with the the bank manager. That manager would grill you with a stern look, asking same questions.
