COVID-19 has had one major impact on HRtech: artificial intelligence has found its time to truly shine.

Sahiqa Bennett, Co-founder and CEO of the AI-powered Searchie recruitment platform based out of the UAE, has witnessed an unprecedented 80% increase in revenue just from the first two weeks of March. She, like others even in the property industry, suggests that the uncertainty the virus has brought has created room for opportunity. 

Rather than jobs disappearing in total, she says that demand has instead rapidly shifted, according to the numbers. Tech professionals are seeing a boost in available roles as companies are forced to rapidly digitize their workforce and processes, and that applies to entire industries. And unsurprisingly, the healthcare sector is hurting for talent more than ever before.

Searchie is trying to stay ahead of the curve, even under these circumstances.  

With patient numbers skyrocketing and medical workers already seeing shortages in many regions across the globe, Searchie offers a platform for those with healthcare-adjacent skills, such as in finances or janitorial work, to find opportunity and help.

Searchie has also launched its own coronavirus relief volunteer initiative to continue supporting affected talent.
