The subject of AI in human resources seems to be everywhere right now. It’s a topic I’ve been fascinated about as it seems so complicated and involved but a technology that could certainly revolutionize our jobs in HR and recruiting. And so for the last twelve months, I’ve been personally vested in better understanding AI for myself taking several classes on the subject, interviewing experts, and reading all the information and resources I have time to.
Introducing the Artificial Intelligence Human Resources Survey
That’s exactly the reason that I’ve decided to launch Workology’s HR AI Workforce Readiness Survey. This survey is designed to learn about HR and recruiting practitioner readiness for leveraging artificial intelligence in their jobs. Where are you, your department and your company when it comes to adoption or utilizing artificial intelligence? There is no wrong answer here. We want to uncover your adoption and implementation curve and where this new technology will live. Will it be in human resources, information technology, and/or operations?
This survey is in partnership with two awesome HR technology partners, MeBeBot and ThisWay Global who are leading the way in the artificial intelligence space. Like me, they are committed to understanding, supporting, and elevating the work we do in HR and recruitment. Thank you for taking the time to consider taking our survey. We will be sharing results with survey respondents first in mid-2019. By completing the survey, you give us a better picture of AI implementation in HR and recruiting.
How Ready Is HR For AI?
Last year I wrote that we have reached peak hype cycle when it comes to the subject of AI in HR and recruitment. We’re currently living in the peak of inflated expectations (see image below) when it comes to the subject of artificial intelligence in our space. I’ve had one hundred conversations or more with other HR practitioners, analysts, and industry pundits who are thinking about artificial intelligence in HR. But what does AI in HR really look like? How is it being implemented or is it yet? There are so many questions that remain about AI, even though the topic is such a hot one in our industry. This is the reason I decided to dive in deeper and really understand where people are in terms of adoption beyond what Deloitte or PwC studies tell us.
Please let me know if you have any questions about the survey or about artificial intelligence adoption in HR or recruitment. I’m looking forward to connecting with you.
