Responsible AI

SeekOut is creating innovative ways for recruiters and HR leaders to find and grow talent—and this includes incorporating new technologies like artificial intelligence and machine learning. In this period of rapid technological transformation and new capabilities and applications for AI, SeekOut is committed to responsible use of AI and machine learning systems.

SeekOut follows seven core principles to ensure the responsible use of AI in our offerings

1. Build Human-Driven, AI-Assisted Technology 

AI augments but does not replace human decision-making. Keeping the human at the center of decisions minimizes the potential for unintended (and undetected) outcomes. For example, our AI systems will never make employment decisions.

2. Operate with Transparency

Our AI capabilities assist in discovering and growing talent. We document how our AI functions and disclose its use in our offerings.   

3. Use AI to Advance Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Belonging  

SeekOut builds AI capabilities that advance inclusion of underrepresented populations and reduces economic, social, gender and other inequalities.    

4. Test Internally and Validate Externally

We consistently validate that our AI program reflects and advances industry best practices by conducting internal testing, engaging in external auditing, and partnering with outside experts. We actively contribute to a broader effort to ensure responsible AI use in our industry.  

5. Design AI to Prevent Harm and Respect Individual Interests 

We will assess the potential impact of our AI systems on the interests and rights of individuals. To prevent the potential for unintended harm, we take additional protective steps when building new AI capabilities.

6. Create Shared Accountability  

Everyone at SeekOut has an important role to play in ensuring that our AI systems are used responsibly. SeekOut encourages all employees and customers to contribute to the continuous improvement of AI capabilities and to monitor for potential or unintended bias.

7. Control By Design 

Individuals have a fundamental right to protect the use of personal data. We provide customers and individuals mechanisms to understand and control the data that is leveraged by SeekOut’s AI systems.  

SeekOut is a member of the Responsible AI Institute, a member of the TechNet Council, and has performed a third party AI bias audit with Credo.AI.
