The world is not standing still. Just as soon as an AI is programmed, the world in which it operates has moved on. Human intelligence is aware of the environment around it. It can adapt to change and new challenges—without being reprogrammed. Stout Systems’ team provides unique insights into technology, business, hiring and the intersection of all three. AI can find answers hidden in vast treasure troves of data. But can it tell you what to do about them?
Stout Systems was founded in the 1990s in Ann Arbor, Michigan by a bit of a maverick. He made the mistake of trying to tell people, hey, we don’t have to do things the same way we’ve been doing them…for decades…getting the same results. Trying to break rules in a moribund corporate culture was not a successful strategy for staying employed. So why not form a new company? After all, when you’re your own boss, nobody can fire you. Stout Systems was founded by a rule breaker. Try getting AI to break rules.
If you have been on a job hunt recently, you know that a highly qualified candidate is often rejected for a role. Why? Because the AI on the intake side didn’t find a specific word or phrase on a resume or in an application. Stout Systems uses human intelligence liberally when it comes to finding the right role for the right candidate. It looks like magic. It’s not. It’s just old-fashioned hard work and getting to know our customers and our candidates. Nonetheless, we tell people, This is where the magic happens.™ Because every team needs a slogan.
Human intelligence can make leaps of faith. Can connect the dots. Can read between the lines. And our team is particularly good at listening between the lines. With over twenty years of experience, we hear things that our customers and candidates don’t even realize they are telling us. But don’t take our word on it. Let our customers and candidates tell you in their own words. AI can listen, but it can’t listen between the lines.
