AI-Powered HR: Transforming the Future of Work

Cornerstone Editors

Just as the 1960s popular primetime cartoon The Jetsons predicted, artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning enhancements are already permeating our day-to-day lives, especially in the workplace. While we don’t drive airborne automobiles that look like flying saucers (yet), there’s been a significant societal shift toward automation, especially in the HR tech world.

Engineers are using AI to develop more efficient ways to code. Financial planners are using new computer programs to better forecast the future. Moving away from yesterday's paper-based processes to today's digital advancements has enabled businesses to execute long-term visions, despite economic uncertainties.

This surge of transformation has created an urgent need to empower people with the right tools to remain agile. As work evolves and new skills emerge, organisations must prioritise developing their people. According to the World Economic Forum’s 2023 Future of Jobs report, over 85% of organisations will increase the implementation of new technologies over the next five years, and nearly half (44%) of an individual worker’s skills will need to be updated.

Understanding how AI-powered technology can rapidly transform the workplace is more critical than ever. Businesses must lean into AI to upskill their workforce and — more importantly — cultivate a culture of continuous learning where people can effectively respond to ongoing, dynamic changes. Let’s examine the intentional advantages of the game-changing talent management automation disrupting the HR industry.
