About the Event

We will be hosting the second of the roundtable events, on this occasion focusing on the implications of the upcoming digital trends for the human resource management profession.

You have likely started to hear of, and perhaps even experienced, the application of new technology in screening applications for key words. However, in this rapidly evolving topic, the implications for HR practice extend far beyond applicant screening. Some organizations are already using artificial intelligence (AI) to better understand their workforce dynamics, to answer HR queries, to predict the likelihood of successful change, and even to shape organizational culture. The discussion will explore real life examples of the upcoming digital trends and the application of AI in HR and what it means for shaping the profession – will it mean new roles for HR? Will it mean certain roles disappear? Will there still be a ‘human’ element? Rapidly evolving technologies we could hardly dream of a decade ago are on the cusp of having a profound effect on the HR practice of tomorrow. Get ahead of the curve and start to plan for the impact.
