Evaluating HR's Readiness for Artificial Intelligence

Holiday Inn–Round Rock, 2370 Chisholm Trail, Round Rock, TX 78681

Registration, Networking, Lunch:  11:15 AM – 12 PM

Presentation 12:00 – 1:30 pm

In early 2019, Workology distributed an “HR Artificial Intelligence (AI) Readiness” survey to its global subscriber list of over 100,000 HR practitioners (with various job titles and industries). This survey was designed to capture HR feedback to determine the level of understanding of what AI is, how it can be leveraged in HR, its implications, and whether or not HR professionals have a strategy to implementing AI tools within their HR teams.

Learning Objectives

  • Highlight the history of Technology in HR, showing the progress made over the past 20 years, to use software and tools to help HR move the needle from being tactical and administrative to more strategic.
  • Address the macro economic changes in the workforce (demographics, remote workers, gig economy, low unemployment, etc.) as well as the advances in technologies and related tools that have now provided HR an opportunity to use AI to work smarter, not harder.
  • The results of the AI HR Readiness survey will be discussed to provide data points as to where we are (as described by HR peers who completed the survey) as to implementing AI in our companies.
  • The presentation will summarize some use cases of AI in HR today, potential implications, and steps to begin an AI strategy in your organization.
