Jessica Miller-Merrill & Beth White

In 2019, Workology distributed an “HR Artificial Intelligence (AI) Readiness” survey to its global subscriber list of over 100,000 HR practitioners. This survey captured HR feedback to determine the implications and understanding of AI, how HR can leverage same and what implementation strategies HR professionals use to deploy AI. The results of the AI HR Readiness survey will be used to provide data points in this broader discussion of AI on 15 May 2019.

This presentation, which is accredited for both HRCI and SHRM CEUs, will:

  • highlight the history of Technology in HR, showing software and tools to help HR move the needle from being tactical and administrative to more strategic partnering
  • summarize advances in technologies and related tools supporting AI for HR
  • address macro economic changes in the workforce (demographics, remote workers, gig economy, low unemployment, etc.) that now provide HR an opportunity to use AI
  • summarize some use cases of AI in HR today with potential implications
  • review steps to begin an AI strategy in your organization

We encourage our AHRMA members to participate in this survey - "HR AI Readiness Survey" (attendance at meeting not required) to provide feedback on AI.
