🤷♂️ What’s Going On and Why It Matters:
Will Human Resources be impacted by artificial intelligence?
We make our best predictions all the time, but we also bring in the heavy hitters to set us straight on all things AI.
Thiébaud opened our eyes to the real challenges and opportunities Human Resources departments face when looking at GenAI.
It’s about more than cutting down on paper pushing. A lot more.
Infusing GenAI into Human Resources entails everything from predictive analytics for improved retention to faster daily operations with better policies and job descriptions.
Here’s a highlight of what we uncovered:
- Example of using AI in employee surveys for in-depth data analysis
- Importance of HR professionals acting as change agents and addressing corporate culture issues
- Discussion on AI's potential to increase productivity and eliminate rigid systems
- Proposal to invest in existing employees by providing them with AI tools and skills
Yup. Our brains got all kinds of HR brain food today.
🦾How You Can Leverage:
What’s the future of the HR department look like?
Sometimes when we think of innovation and tech, we think of the marketing, advertising or IT departments.
The HR department is likely a key to GenAI adoption. Not only could Human Resource leaders hold the keys to unlocking AI possibilities, but they also might be the ones calling for its use.
Thiébaud showed us the way, with some key insights and timely calls to action for HR professionals.
Here’s what it all means.
1 – Say bye-bye to busywork 👋
Those long job descriptions?
Updating that policy manually?
Analyzing employee engagement surveys?
(Anyone else dreading the amount of tedious manual work involved here, or just us?)
Work GenAI into the HR department’s day-to-day to help tackle the mountain of manual tasks. From using AI to gain more insights into employee engagement surveys to tapping into the multilingual capabilities of ChatGPT for translating policies in a multinational company, HR has a lot to gain from tapping into GenAI.
A recent study from Boston Consulting Group showed HR departments can see a 30% increase in productivity by tapping into GenAI.
Wanna know one of the easiest wins for manual tasks? Analyzing PDFs inside of ChatGPT. Whether it’s employee engagement surveys or having to combine multiple job descriptions across different verticals, knowing how to use PDFs inside of ChatGPT is a game-changer.
2 – Use AI data for decision making 🧐
In the end, HR departments are in charge of important decisions that can impact thousands of employees.
Thiébaud stressed the importance of predictive AI data in HR decision-making. By harnessing AI technology, HR can identify patterns and trends in employee data, helping companies make informed decisions about employee engagement, performance, and retention.
Try this: Not exaggerating here: HR is ripe for some swift GenAI transformation. Especially when it comes to AI-powered insights, the future of the HR department is already starting to unfold. Check out this McKinsey report on how AI and data is changing Human Resources.
3 – HR should take the charge 🔋️
HR leaders are, after all, often the center of an org. So, they have to be Ambassadors of AI change, Thiébaud said.
Alright, so you’re in HR and now you’re convinced to start taking the steps to push GenAI in your company?
