     SHRM (Society of Human Resource Management) randomly sampled over 1,500 HR professionals in the U.S. Among HR professionals surveyed, 85% agree that using automation or AI saves them time or increases their efficiency by some degree, and 64% believe the tech automatically filters out unqualified applicants.
