In times of constant and accelerated change, leaders must prepare today for the impact of artificial intelligence on the workforce. By 2030, McKinsey predicts between 75 to 375 million people will need to switch jobs and learn new skills due to the adoption of automation in the workplace.
Beyond learning new skills, workers will also need to learn how to work side by side with AI. Gartner predicts that by 2022 one in five workers will have a digital assistant as their co-worker. So the issue is how can leaders and in particular HR leaders use AI to their advantage to re-imagine business processes, up-skill the workforce (starting with the HR team members) and promote responsible AI by managing the trust, legal and ethical concerns that accompany AI.
This session will focus on the following ways HR can lead in the age of AI:
- Share recent Future Workplace research on the deployment of AI in HR;
- Identify how HR Pioneers are using AI to enhance the employee experience in recruiting, on boarding, career development and coaching;
- Recommend new HR roles being created and how HR can lead the the AI revolution in the workplace.
