Digital transformation has accelerated demands for a more diversified and skilled workforce.
Rapid changes have highlighted the importance of a back-to-human approach of training, career development, and hiring. 97% of organizations are planning significant transformation this year but feel that inadequate workforce skills and employee burnout may hinder this goal.
Across every industry, from sustainability to tech, shortages of skills remain a key challenge. Now is the moment to leverage artificial intelligence as a tool for HR, from talent acquisition, engaging training and development opportunities, to aligning business goals with every employee’s journey.
Employees are facing pressure, not just to sharpen their existing skillsets, but to develop new ones to keep up with the digital transformation.
Traditional classroom training with a broad-brush approach is no longer relevant, or realistic for the modern-day workforce. By relying on AI-based solutions, the right growth opportunities and training will be presented for the right employees – no guesswork involved.
Employees can benefit from advanced, personalized, and perceptive tools that can improve productivity, drive engagement and motivation, and allow for training anywhere, anytime.
The pandemic intensified underlying pre-existing dynamics that were already transforming the employee experience, and in a highly competitive job market, standing out as an organization with strong learning and development values is necessary.
Accelerated career advancement to grow together
The popularity of self-directed and relevant learning programs is rising. People are keen to educate themselves on relevant topics, from initial reskilling, advancing people proficiencies, diversity training, time management, to empathy and communication courses to improve their career and portfolio of knowledge.
AI platforms can match employees to relevant training materials, and in turn boost engagement, increase digital literacy, limit burnout, and accelerate career advancement.
With employees owning their own vision of personal progression, greater alignment of organizational goals and development of workforce will be achieved.
In an age of employee burnout and disengagement, personalized, customizable and consumable training content has a greater chance of being at the top of an employee’s to-do list.
AI allows employees to own their career development to benefit their morale and view their career journey digitally and clearly.
A trajectory powered by individualized, customized, and data-driven analytics all in one place, can outline needs, strengths, and weaknesses to ensure people are progressing to the next level.
Streamlining processes with data driven decisions
Powered by data, AI solutions can learn and adapt to datasets it is given, meaning over time, insights and choices become more instinctive and precise.
Employee data is often complex and spread over different formats and structures; for example, quantifiable numbers such as training or education courses undertaken by an employee, alongside more varied datasets like resumes, performance reviews, or interviews.
The mix of qualitative and quantitative data can then be interpreted by AI solutions, to build formulas and discover potential challenges, opportunities, or blind spots.
Alongside accelerating employee learning and development internally, AI can streamline and power the hiring process, filtering candidates’ profiles and skills to match up to job vacancies.
Considering that the hiring market is more competitive than ever and resignation at an all-time high, AI may be able to read between the lines of a candidate’s profile and find skillsets that translate perfectly to a role in your organization.
AI platforms can identify and work to overcome potential blind spots in your workforce that may have previously been missed by humans.
Deploying data-driven automated technologies that are founded upon a complex, personalized skills ontology lets tech perform challenging work, leaving HR departments ample time to focus on strategy and next steps.
Alleviating the complexity of keeping track of an employee’s skills manually and allowing people to create their own profiles detailing their strengths and skills, or aspects they wish to acquire or improve will fill in any gaps within the organization.
The world of work has been completely reimagined. Organizations must adapt and invest in their people to keep up with industry trends and a competitive job market, and AI will play a key part in the development and reinvention of employee career development.
The time is now to embrace the use of AI in your organization.
