The mere mention of AI creates waves of fear and overwhelm for most. The unknown, the continual change, the constant fire hose of information and the technical jargon is terrifying. Historically HR professionals have been risk-adverse and slow to change their traditional processes or adopt technology. This must change because accessible AI is changing the shape of industries, business structures and roles.
‘If someone said every one of your employees can have an executive assistant, with no extra staff cost, how more productive could your workplace be?’
In my opinion the role of HR in the modern world is to attract, retain and develop talent. We want our people to remain relevant and to maximise their performance while avoiding unnecessary risk. Ultimately supporting the senior leaders and business owners to execute their business plan. I believe that accessible AI can elevate the HR function from ‘nice to have’ to ‘critically important’ providing that craved seat at the table many HR professionals have been yearning for.
Successful integration of ’assessable AI’ multiplies the impact HR has on small to medium businesses.
(RISK + PERFORMANCE) x AI = HR impact on your business
Here are the five reasons why HR must lead your assessable AI integration strategy:
‘Small to medium business must embrace accessible AI and HR should be leading the way.’
Industries are being completely disrupted, roles permanently altered or removed and new roles rapidly emerging. Putting your head in the sand is not an option. Who in your workplace is assessing the new AI tools being created daily? Do you have a strategy to get ahead of the curve?
We need to remove the barriers, maximise each employee’s output, re-educate our team members and encourage experimentation and AI lead continual improvement. We need our employees to collaborate with AI and drive better outcomes!
The AI tsunami is moving incredibly fast and to remain competitive we must look at business differently. I think HR holds the key!
